How on earth is skype free? I ask myself this all the time and I have no idea, but I am so glad it is. It has been such a great help as Leland and I have had a long distance relationship for the past nine months. In fact, I'm pretty sure we wouldn't even be able to have a relationship without it. We skype all the time. I remember the very first time we ever skyped. I was so nervous. It only lasted like half an hour and we talked about mundane get-to-know-you things, but I think I fell a little more in love with him that day. Since then we've somehow come to the point where we skype everyday, sometimes multiple times a day. It isn't the same as being there with him, it isn't even close, but it's something and I'm so grateful to have it. I know in 2 short months our skyping days will be over for good, and I could not be happier about that, but I want to remember the days where I would count down the hours until it was time to skype, and the times where we would give each other tours of our apartments via webcam, and the times that we would simultaneously watch every single episode of the office together. We've had a lot of fun skype dates too, like playing outburst together. Pretty much all of our relationship building was done over skype, hours and hours of endless talking every night for nine months adds up. Although my family and friends all make fun of me for skyping ( even as far as calling me "skyper") I do love it. So I think I will relish these last 2 months of skyping. I mean, who could complain about getting to see this cute face every night, right?
