Making Peace With Flying Solo

No joke, I’ve got no plans. And believe it or not, but I’d rather spend my time with you, than than flying solo. So pinch yourself, its your lucky day. You in? –Pacey

Match’s graduation is looming ahead. Just 6 more weeks left and he will be DONE with police academy and our world as we know it will be forever changed. Not to sound dramatic but it is true. I’m trying so hard not to obsess about what will happen, and how his schedule will be so chaotic. The Virgo side of me refuses to admit that we will not be able to make future plans. I am not a fly by the seat of my pants girl. I’m a planner. I’m a list maker. But I can do this.

If I were able to make plans with him, I would be checking for the best Caribbean cruise deals I could find and we would be going on our long overdue honeymoon. Ok maybe not a Caribbean cruise, but something. I have heard talk that even though his schedule may be wacky, he should still get 3 or 4 days off in a row at times. I hope that is true and we can take a mini vacation at the very least. I have already resigned myself to that fact that I will be going stag to the three weddings we have this year.

Going to weddings solo I can handle. I will dance with my friends and we’ll have a great time. This is a lot less stressful than going to a wedding as a single woman. What I’m most sad about is having to go to my 10 year high school reunion this summer solo. I could really use his company at the reunion, and for the 8 hour long drive home. I am excited to go home, but visiting home is so much better with Match there. But who knows? The reunion is in June and his schedule may allow him to come with me. But even if it doesn’t, I know I need to make peace with flying solo. I am an independent girl, I can handle it.

When I was single, I didn’t mind flying solo. I liked doing my own thing, on my own schedule. But now I’ve found Match, and I’ve discovered just how much fun life is with him in it. I love that he is my best friend and I don’t get tired of his company. I know I can fly solo, but I would much rather have my plus one with me.

Flying Solo This Weekend

Pacey: Hey, I’ve got nothing going on now. So how about we go for a walk around town together.
Andie: Yeah, what’s the joke?
Pacey: No joke, I’ve got no plans. And believe it or not, but I’d rather spend my time with you, than than flying solo. So pinch yourself, its your lucky day. You in? –Dawson’s Creek

Tomorrow Match is leaving for the fire station and won’t return until Sunday evening. He’s done an overnight at the fire house, but it was during the week. This will be the first time we’ve been apart for more than 24 hours since last year when I went to visit my family in Oregon. With our busy schedules, we haven’t had much of a chance for quality time in the last few weeks. Between midterms, social stuff, and work, it’s been go go go. I’m really craving some one on one time with Match, where we don’t have any obligations. Where we can sleep in and just laze around. Continue reading Flying Solo This Weekend

Match Meets Best Friend

Joey: These past couple of years, it’s been one big soap opera. I wouldn’t take it back. I wouldn’t… take any of it back, but… I’m glad that it’s over. ‘Cause I like the way things are now. My life being the cruel joke that it is, now that things are so nice… you’re leaving.Dawson: Jo… if I thought for one second it was the right thing to do, I would stay, but it’s time to go. It’s time for me to get out of this room, and it’s time for you to discover who you are without us. This chapter’s over, Jo. I can feel it.  –Dawson’s Creek

Yesterday was the long awaited Beerfest, followed by a party at Old Married Couple’s house. It was an anticipated event for me for two reasons: 1. It’s a super fun festival where drink lots of beer and socialize with friends, and 2. Match was going to meet Best Friend for the first time. If you’re a new reader, read here for the whole Best Friend saga, and you’ll see why this was such a big deal for me. Continue reading Match Meets Best Friend

Catching Up After Vacation

Pacey: This is just one assignment. Its not like your flunking out of school.
Andie: Yeah, I know that. But you get behind by one day, and then you’re always struggling to catch up. And you become more and more confused, and then the next thing you know, you’re out on the streets drunk and pulling around a shopping cart. –Dawson’s Creek

Whew, vacation has got me so behind in everything back in the real world. I’m sorry for the lack of blogging. I’m still trying to catch up on my commenting too. If people ever tell you keeping up a blog is not work, they’re lying. With school, and this pesky thing called work, I haven’t had time to relax since I got home on Monday.

I came home to a full inbox since I didn’t open either my work or my personal laptops while I was away. Go me! I truly relaxed, and now I’m paying for it. I realized that the guys over at The Guy’s Perspective featured a little paragraph I wrote them about my thoughts on kissing.  Here’s a link to the post,  go check it out and tell me what you think!

Ok, I’m still working on my blog post for Carmel. All I can tell you right now is that it was AMAZING. I wish I lived there.

Ok, I’m off to comment and catch up with all my blog friends and your fabulous lives. Then it’s off to night class where I’m supposed to stay wide awake for four hours, after working a nine hour day. Yeah…that’s gonna happen.

Scavenger Hunt-Photo Style

Pacey: How do I look?
Joey: Like a before picture in an ad for geek remover. –Dawson’s Creek

I stole this from Miss Brittany, because it was just too cute. Basically, find pictures that you already have online, and use them to answer the questions below. Like Britt, I have tons of Facebook pictures all over the internet, so I might as well utilize them. So enjoy this little online photo  scavenger hunt:I’m going to have to get creative here, since I can’t use my face, so we’ll see how this turns out. Continue reading Scavenger Hunt-Photo Style
