I am also in a nursing program while my boyfriend (of many years) is in the occupational therapy program. Needless to say, our time with each other is very limited. In the beginning, we constantly argued. I was at the point where I was ready to leave. Fortunately, my sweetie is not as pessimistic as I. After sitting down and discussing, like adults, our true feelings toward each other, we realized that what we have is too wonderful to lose. He and I decided that we have to designate "us" days/nights where we would rent movies, bar hop, go dancing,etc. We have been on weekend trips (Aruba, Cancun, Las Vegas). Around midterms and finals we even study together. In the end, it is all worth while. Don't give up if this is something that you want. It can be done!!
B.T.W., 1) In case you are wondering, both my boyfriend and I are A sudents. Our studies always come first. 2)We are not rich...we have been very lucky in finding great deals with our travel agent.
