My GF of 2 1/2 yrs and I both moved home this past year until I figured out where I'd be going to LS. It's looking like we're going to be a little under 3 hours apart...which is a hell of a lot better than the 6 hour long distance we've endured this year. It's looking like she's going to stay at home for another year and then possibly move out with me after my first year. Realistically, how often do you think we'll be able to see eachother. I think it's fairly realistic that we see eachother 3 weekends/month, and that I'll do the 3 hr trip once/twice a month. I'm thinking I'll study during the day on friday, drive in on friday night...study saturday morning, then have the night off and then head back early on sunday and study for the rest of the day/evening. Does anyone think that my outlook on this whole situation is too naive?
As of dinner time today, I will be single. I am ending a 2 yr relationship that was not going to make it through law school. I plan on staying single through school, with the occasional booty call
Engaged, as of yesterday!

I plan on staying single through school, with the occasional booty call I'm sorry if I come off as being nosy...but I'm just curious as to why you (or anyone else ending a long relationship before LS) may be ending your relationship. Not that this applies to you in any way, but I feel as though a few people on this forum seem to be throwing away a good thing just because they have this skewed mentality on a long distance relationship. I've heard before "Oh I can't do long distance..or..I wont have time to do a long distance thing and study..or...It won't last another 3 years, etc". I just feel like no matter how difficult it is to deal with LS and a long distance relationship, you don't just throw in the towel when you have something good going. If you don't love that other person, then it's a different story altogether.
I posted this on the Georgia thread, but I'll repost here since a couple people have asked:I knew he was surprising me with something special, but I just thought we'd be going to see a matinee of Phantom of the Opera or something. He was all insistant on leaving early, so we left his place just before noon, which confused me since the matinee didn't start until 2. I figured he just wanted to get drinks or something before hand.So we get off the T a stop earlier than I thought we would, and we walked into the Public Gardens. He sat me down on a bench, which is when I started getting nervous butterflies. I wondered why he was sitting me down on a bench to give me theater tickets. The thought of a proposal flashed through my mind, but then I thought, "Nah, couldn't be." He said "The first part of your surprise is I got tickets to see the Phantom of the Opera." I was like, 'Yay, I thought that might be what we were doing today!" I was still wondering why I was sitting on this bench though. Then, he said, "You have to do somethign for me first." and reached into his pocket, and then I totally realized what was going on. I got all teary eyed and shakey. I don't even remember what he said except for the ending of "Will you marry me?" This was all witnessed by a park ranger and a group full of elderly women who all applauded when I said yes.Then we went to a bar around the corner from the theater and had a glass of champagne and got the cell phones out to call everyone. We saw the show, and then met a bunch of our friends at a pub/bar down the street for dinner and hours of drinks and celebration.So that's my engagement story!On a side note, concerning living situations, we've gotten an apartment we love in Atlanta, but he won't be joining me until December (he's finishing up a degree here in Boston). We'll be hopefully paying most of the bills with his salary, but now that we're going to be planning a wedding at some point, I forsee taking about the max in loans for school and trying to stretch those as far as possible in order to save up for that!
