Kevin's Two Year Date
Ugh so I know I’m supposed to be excited when people ask about my religion, but I kind of dread it.
One if my friends who isn’t a member just asked me what makes my religion different, and I got so nervous. He’s one of my nonmember friends who always jokingly gives me crap about being Mormon. So tonight he asked me a serious question. And I got nervous. And butchered everything.
I just want Kevin to come home already. Packages and letters and stuff are nice but man what I would give for a hug. I have like 4 months left and I’m ready for it to be up.
I really want a tattoo in memory of my parents.
But I know I shouldn’t.
But I know exactly what I’d want.
But ugh, I shouldn’t
It’s a hard life sometimes.
A couple weeks ago we were both waiting to clock out, and for some reason my boyfriend came up in conversation. Most people at work know I’m in a long distance relationship but not everyone knows what kind. He asked why Kevin has been gone for so long, and I said he is serving a mission for our church.
He said something like “oh for your church huh?” And he literally went on this questioning rant to me like “well if God is such a swell guy then why does ___ happen,” and “I don’t see how anyone can believe in a god who lets ____ happen,” Etc. I just let him talk, and said something like “yep, it’s pretty crazy.” He went on to apologize and tell me that he doesn’t believe in God, and I told him “no apology needed, it’s your belief. I believe people should do what makes them happy.”
He said “so it’s for your church right? You must think you’re pretty holy then huh?” I said “noooo, definitely not, but I’m working on it.”
Like dude, I’m not going to give you what you want. If you want a religious discussion, work is not the place. And I’m not going to take your inquiries seriously if you come at me with attacks.
Sometimes when I don’t feel like explaining that I’m waiting on a missionary, I just tell everyone he’s in a band.
I always miss the Saturday sessions of conference because of work.
Ugh. So I’m still waiting on a form from my school, and the w-2 from my last job. It’s annoying because I can’t do an e-z form this year, and will probably have to do long form since I am also factoring in tithing (anyone else doing that?).
I’m just stressed out, and want to get it over with already. I’m also worried that getting them done will cost more, or be equal to what my return is. I’d like to at least get something back :/
How are things going with your taxes?
If I can wait four years in agony for Fall Out Boy to come off of hiatus, I can certainly wait two years for Kevin to come home.
Co Worker: Does your boyfriend go to school in Portland also?
Me: Not right now, he’s actually away on business.
Co Worker: Oh, a suit and tie kinda guy huh?
Me: Very much so :)
My best male friend wants to take me on a date today. I think it’s like a friend date because he knows how much I have been missing my missionary lately… But he told me to get cute and dress like it’s a casual date and I just. Abort mission.
Kevin and I never talked about this.
