Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
I was reading back some of my old diary entries from when I first met Jack, nearly two years ago. Has it been that long already?? Wow!!! But I read an entry soon after I got home, when we were facing the prospect of a long distance relationship, where Sabby said that sometimes you have decide what you want to give up for someone.
Sabby’s always right. I hate that Sabby’s always right. Especially about these things.
In a year, either Jack or I are going to have to give up something very important. I may have to give up going to Japan for school, and I really want to. I’m not exactly sure what he’d have to give up, but it’s something. Either time with me, home, or… something else. I don’t know. We have a while to figure it out, but it’s going to happen, and I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out.
There’s a “nuclear” option but it’s one that neither of us are ready for, I don’t think. I mean, spouses are allowed in Japan when one person is on a student visa…
I’m trying not to think about it. We have a year. But… it’s just “kicking the can down the road”, as Dave likes to say. Dave has all sorts of fun sayings.
Yuki and I have been texting, a little. We both have a lot of homework and we’re in the same group, so… she seems really nice. I do need to ask her over soon.
Sabby wants to take me for a spa day on Friday, before my party. I have classes, but I think we can work around it. I love spa days! I’m not sure why she’s making such a big deal over it, I guess we’ll see what the party is. It’s weird, it’s not a surprise party, I know it’s going to happen, but I know absolutely nothing else about it. Aww. Girls are really, really, MADDENINGLY good at keeping a secret. They even temporarily kicked me out of the group chat. AWWWWW.
They said I can rejoin after the party.
Oh well, Yuki’s nice to talk to I think. I told Ai about her. She wants to meet her someday.
Oh, it’s a bit cooler today! Not COOL. It’s still upper 90s. But at least it’s not 105. Small blessings and all that, I guess.
There’s been this anime/manga that’s gotten really popular lately and one of the main characters is named Ai. I don’t think Ai likes that much, but what can you do?
