SWASING | Long-Term, Long-Distance, Long Shot

Last week, my boyfriend and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary. Thankfully, it lined up with Thanksgiving break, otherwise we would have been celebrating over the phone. We’re long-distance during the school year so that I can be at school in Ithaca, and he can work at his job back home. I’ve found that being in a long-term, long-distance relationship is somewhat off the beaten path for college students, and I have struggled to figure out how my relationship fits into my life as a student, both academically and socially.
