So many thoughts swirling in my mind,
I’m graduating in a year – crazy!
He mentioned he wants to have a serious talk…
What’re we doing after we graduate?
I’m still trying to figure out where we’re going to live next fall semester!
What if we don’t get a job in the same area?
He said he doesn’t know if he could deal with a long-distance relationship.
I know it’ll be hard,
but I’m confident I could deal with it,
because my love for him is stronger than that.
How am I going to pay for rent right after graduation without a job?
Am I really going to succumb to a retail job until I get a “real” job offer?
I’m trying to adjust to all these new changes,
all these new phases in my life,
and trying to incorporate it into his.
Adjusting is hard
and I haven’t even started yet,
especially with a significant other.
Just thinking about it is stressful.
But at least it’s good that I’m thinking a year ahead.
(And that he’s thinking a year ahead.)
