Congratulations on the college acceptance and financial aid. I’m sorry that the situation with your girlfriend makes it hard for you to celebrate that achievement.
This is your time. Each of you should get involved with your studies, make new friends, and join at least one organization in the next month. By all means, keep in touch and celebrate each other’s growth and successes. But also support each other in taking full advantage of what college has to offer. Love should enhance your lives, not limit them.
You’ll be home for Thanksgiving. If you can’t wait to see each other for that long, there’s a three-day weekend in October. (A six-hour distance is hard but it’s not the other side of the universe or even the other side of the country.) I hope you can support each other in going off to fully take part in the college experience. If you are right for each other, being separated for a couple of months shouldn’t make a difference.
I wish you well.
