Separating from a loved one is never easy. Because of my long distance relationship, I’ve gone through this whole ‘see you later’ thing countless of times. The locations may be different but how I feel remains the same: my heart aches every time we drop each other off at the airport or train station, uncertain when we’re gonna see each other next because of my insane schedule. I have to follow where my work takes me, even at the expense of my personal relationships. I haven’t seen my family in months! I missed three birthdays — my dad’s and both of my sisters’. I guess life is a never-ending balancing act. When you think about it, we are extremely lucky to have technology on our side: phone calls, emails, skype video chats. what about people back in the dark ages when there’s no cellphones or internet? What about soldiers who went to war last century? Bah, humbug.
It snowed on my last day in Stockholm. I went to my BF’s office to pick him up for our last lunch out (asian food is comfort food) before he dropped me off at the train that goes straight to the airport.
