Do you remember that sitcom So Little Time, featuring the Olsen twins? “So little time, so much to do”. Making time for our relationship has become increasingly difficult, and I miss him more than ever. Fortunately, we are still going strong, and I think these tips have something to do with it. Enjoy!
1. Decorate your dorm with pictures. This is pretty self explanatory, but if you want to try something different, I have an idea. Purchase CD jewel cases and slide your pictures into the lid of each case. Hang the cases on your wall using command strips. Tadaa! Your welcome. You will now be branded as the artsy resident on your floor.
2. Wear his clothes. At least a quarter of the clothing items I packed for college came from his closet. Remember darling, sharing is caring. When I don’t pair his black v-neck with skinny jeans and converse, it serves as a good substitute for pj’s.
3. Share your story. It is never long before his name slips into the conversation. Fair warning: most guys will distance themselves after you reveal the existence of your Prince Charming. Screw. Them.
4. Exchange academic schedules. This could very well be the best tip I have to offer. Exchanging schedules has allowed us to coordinate texts, calls, and Skype sessions.
5. Create playlists. “First Flight Home” by Jake Miller is a must.
6. Send morning/night texts. If you have seen the college triangle, you know that you can only pick two of the three: good grades, social life, enough sleep. So far, I have been slacking on sleep. Emojis are the reason I get out of bed in the morning.
7. Purchase college apparel. There is more than enough school spirit to go around. I recently snatched him a t-shirt from the bookstore for $7. Should I not have mentioned the price? Go Cuse!
8. Utilize the couple app. If you haven’t heard of this app or you want to know more about it, click on the blue link.
9. Plan study dates on FaceTime. There have been days when we can’t squeeze in a descent conversation. Those tend to be the days we need each other the most. The work load can be stressful at times and so, knowing that he is on my screen comforts me.
10. Keep a countdown of the next visit. The suspense is killing me, but I know that I have a great weekend to look forward to.
