Thanks, T Swift, for that little bit of title inspiration.
All of these little wedding posts around the blog world got me to thinking…none of you had gotten the chance to hear about my love life story!
Soooo, bear with the sappiness, but here goes!
Once upon a time, there was a girl. She moved 2 hours from home for college. At this college, she knew one person. And she wasn’t even friends with him.
I’m guessing you figured out who that girl was, right? Me, of course!
I came to Shippensburg a lost, lonely girl far from home. But don’t feel bad for me! Being on the swim team introduced me to my awesome roommate (still to this day), who was one of the “lame” girls at the team parties who didn’t drink and was ready to leave at like 11. Just like me!
Soon, we were practically inseparable. And, better yet, she had friends from home that were just as lame as us! 😉 By the end of our first month of college, we were swimming hardcore and spending our free time with a group of 6 awesome people. Lots of Guitar Hero and movie nights! My kind of fun!
One of those lame people happened to become my boyfriend. But back then, there was no love interest. I was just getting out of a serious high school relationship, and he was just trying to enjoy the college scene. We both had our fun in college, but a few months into it, we were all pulled back to our small group.
Quickly, it was time to head home for winter break and the two of us had just admitted to each other that we had a huge crush going on. We kept it kind of hush-hush, though. I didn’t even tell my best friend! (I mean, for a girl, that’s a big deal!)
Christmas break over, and we finally admitted to our friends what our little secret was. A month later (end of January) we were official. (Aweee, I know).
Then, summer came. And, unfortunately, we were three hours away from each other. A little taste of long distance only proved to strengthen our relationship. Though we had a little setback a year ago, four years later, we are going strong. We have been through the typical ups and downs, but I don’t know what I would do without him. He listens to my complaining, tears, and goofy stories, and I put up with his football obsession and bird loving! 😉
Ok, I will spare you the massive amount of photos of us I have on my computer… Now that he is back at home, I will admit, Shippensburg is a little lonelier! But he is making big boy money at his big boy job! What a great teacher he must be!
Enough with the love story. I am sleepy! I worked from 6:30 – 4 today! Bed time for me!
Any fun weekends planned??
