FC: Our First Year
1: Celebrating our First Anniversary | 3 NOV 2009
2: HOW WE MET\ I can't remember exactly how we met the first time. I do know it was freshman year and that every time I ran into you, I wondered if you remembered who I was. Usually I was pleasantly surprised to find that you did. Luckily, we met again junior year. I had been hanging out with Hassan a lot and began studying with him at Lambda and Dale Tower. You did also. Occasionally he would leave us alone up in Dale Tower where we would study, talk, and get to know each other better. It's there that I began to fall in love with you.

26: Love is... Discovering the meaning of life in each other's eyes. | Our Summer Apart End of May-24 July
27: Email: 24 June 2010 ...These new adventures do not hold the same thrill for me as they used to. And for that I do not mourn. Why? Because me adventures have changed. They are no less exciting or fulfilling for me, only different. Now I seek to spend a nice night with the love of my life, Lauren. Every day with her is an adventure. Every place I go with her a new experience. I know that I will get so many for experiences from her than I ever could from a foreign land. I will get to marry my soul mate, to move in with her, to start a life with her, to graduate with her, to eat her cooking, to have kids with her, to grow old with her, and to love her for the rest of my life. These things and so many more are my new adventures, they are what I look forward to now, and they are what I miss most of all right now while I am separated from you. I hope to one day still travel, but I also hope to one day do that traveling with you. Right now I can explore and I can have fun, but it is half hearted. Literally, because Lauren you have the other half of the heart that we now share. Without you here by my side everything is a little less bright, a little less exciting. I want to experience these things with you. I wasn't meant to be away from you, and in the future I pray that I will never have to be. I will still explore and I will still enjoy myself, but it will be with longing for you to be with me, and that I will not apologize for, I love you Lauren, and I want you with me always. One day I know we will come back here together, and we will explore this country together, the way it should be, then I can appreciate the sights around me full heartedly. I miss you Lauren, more than I knew that one person could miss another. I find solace in pictures of you or the sound of your voice, but they are short substitutes for the real thing. They are a temporary solution, and in another month's time I will return home to you, and when I do it will be with a knew found appreciation for what you mean to me. I know that I will cherish you more now, because I now know that I can't live without you, and I don't want to have to. You are my other half, and we share one heart. These comics I keep sending you define love through various actions. Well I have a lifetime of actions, experiences, thoughts, places, and moments that I want to share with you. A poet could give you these ideas and shape them into something beautiful and meaning full, but lacking that skill I have to give them to you raw and hope that you can interpret them as I mean them. They are no less true because of this only in there true form. My love, you mean the world to me, and I love you with everything that I have. This month has seemed like years because I have been away from you, and the realization that I have another month still saddens my heart to the extreme. I can hardly wait until July 24th when I can return to you. I know that day will be the end of this pang in my heart, I will finally be back with you, my love. Then, I will be able to start the adventures that I look forward to, and I know there will be no regrets because you are all I want....
