The more I settle into the routine of a long-distance relationship, the more I learn to take care of myself. The more I learn to take care of myself, the more I learn to rely on myself for day-to-day needs. The more I rely on myself, the less I need anyone else for things I should take care of by myself anyway.
Which just makes me want you more.
I want to turn the things I'm learning into a crayon drawing and hang them on my refrigerator for you to see and admire.
I'm back in the fifth grade when I think about you.
