My sweet little sister is having a hard time at the moment. We went shopping on the weekend and she confided in me that she's not happy in her relationship with her boyfriend. They've been together for 7 years, and he recently moved away to another city to study. Sis has discovered that she quite likes being single again, and this long distance relationship thing isn't working out. The boyfriend is sweet, but a bit dumb and emotionally immature. I can't say I'm surprised. I think lil sis has just outgrown him. She wants grown up things like a house, an engagement ring, and a family. He thinks it's ok to take off to another city for 9 months without a proper discussion. Just "Hey, I've paid for this course in [name of city] so I will moving away shortly". Needless to say that was just the icing on the cake. I think she is finally being honest with herself now, and just needs to work up the gumption to tell him. I feel so sorry for her. She's feeling guilty as hell that she's gonna ruin his life, but it's just one of those things. Neither of them did anything wrong, it's just how life rolls. :( So, I'm worried for her. And boyfriend comes back up to our city in roughly 2 weeks, so she's on a countdown.
In other news, I've officially started my job-hunt and sent in a couple of applications. Will keep you posted should anything exciting happen (like getting a cool job such as kitten-petter, chocolate-taster, or tropical-island-holiday-reviewer). But it feels good to be doing something positive :D
