BFF

15 May

I haven’t been updating as much recently because 1) I was sick for a long time and 2) my best friend and love is deploying to Afghanistan. Everything has sort of been last minute and hectic for the past month and I’m just trying to go along with it all.

While it was more of an extended break that I didn’t anticipate (didn’t expect getting sick or a deployment), I wanted to enjoy the last days/hours/minutes with someone I care so much about since he will be gone until January. Although we’ve probably spent more time apart than together since I’ve known the guy, he is undeniably my best friend. People always ask me if I’m fine with my boyfriend deploying. Yeah, I’m fine with my boyfriend deploying. I don’t need to be holding someone’s hand all day long or having someone to automatically take along with to weddings or parties. I’m not worried about the relationship deteriorating. While it’s a little sad waking up without him or not being able to say “I love you” every night, it’s not the worst part of it. The hard part isn’t the boyfriend part – it’s the best friend part. Experiencing things that I know he would’ve enjoyed as well, the unconditional emotional support even when I’m not being girlfriend-y, the bickering without consequence, and, above all, the fact I can’t bombard him with photos of stupid shit all day long. A lot of my closest and best friends are spread across the world but it never gets easier to see another one leave.

One of my/our closest friends, Aimee, decided to take some photos of us as a birthday present to me. This was actually before we found out he’d be deploying but I’m glad we did it since he’ll be gone for a while. Thank you, Aimee, for the great photos and fun day in downtown LA!!

Do me a favor and keep Kenny in your prayers and send lots of positive thoughts while he’s deployed!

So, is it January yet??
