Happy 3 Years(if you don't like reading mushy love stories then skip this blog post :P)
3 years ago, I met someone who has changed my life forever. This time 3 years ago, was the time that I told him that I liked him back and wanted to be with him.
I wasn't going to do this blog post but because you guys have already met him (through my Boyfriend Tag video!) then I thought I might as well!
3 years ago I was still a university student. I was struggling at the time not knowing what I really wanted to do, I was in my second year as a Chemistry student. I was always at uni, either in the chemistry labs or in the library studying. These chemistry units were tough, we had to do two lab reports a week and both of them would be around 10 pages long! It took up a lot of my time, and to be quite frank, I didn't really have a life.
At that time, I just started becoming more active in the Japanese club at my university and met a bunch of friends that have similar interests to me; Japan. I slowly started to hang out more with them, and spending more time with them.
I met Eric in the Japanese club, but I didn't really talk to him at the start. I thought he was a really smart guy who was probably doing a PHD in science at the time, and almost all the smart guys I know are really cocky about it. I talked to him a bit more when the group got significantly smaller, and that was when I found out he was the same age as me (I thought he was 3 years older haha), and we were actually in the same science classes but just didn't realize it.
Like I said at the time, I would spend all my time studying in the library, and I thought he was always doing the same because he started coming to the library everyday to study with me. As time and time passed, we got closer together and one day as he took me home, he asked me if I wanted to be with him. I didn't know at the time as I was really confused with what I wanted in life, and having just got out of another relationship I didn't want to jump so fast.
I thought about it for a few days and I realized that Eric was the one I wanted to be with. I told him a couple of days later, and since then, that was the best decision I have ever made in my life.
He made me feel what it really felt like to feel loved. If I'm feeling upset about something he would go out of his way to make me feel better. There are no arguments between us, we completely trust eachother. We have been through so much together, traveling together and watching eachother grow.
I'm feel so lucky to have him. He supports me in whatever I do, and I am forever grateful for that.
