Week 44/52 : A goodbye isn’t painful unless you’re never going to say hello again

In my 37th self portrait, I mentioned that Ckloy had some great opportunities ahead of him, but it requires some big changes in his life. His company is sending him to Texas for 6 months, which means we won’t see each other again until sometime around June T__T We’ve been together for 8 years and we’ve never spent that much time away from each other before, so we’re both really torn up about it. But at the same time, we both know that this is a wonderful opportunity for him. I guess we’re just a little down because he got his visa on November 20 (which was only about 2 weeks ago) and he’s leaving for Texas today. Those two weeks just flew by so fast.  But, if I’m being completely honest, I don’t think it matters if he’s leaving today or next year, I’d still be sad no matter what. I guess the only thing for me to do is wish him luck and start counting down the days till we’re together again. I’m just thankful that modern technology makes long distance relationships slightly more bearable. It looks like I’ll be spending a lot of time on Skype for the next few months.
