30 Day Challenge..

but I’m just going to do it all for our followers to know us a bit better. Oh and I did my part. I’m going to get John to answer these questions to so it’s like a his/her type of view!

1: Your name/their name
 Alexandria & John

2: Your ages
19 & 22

3: Your locations
Utah & Virginia

4: How did you meet?
Through a mutual friend, who was my boyfriend at the time and John out of nowhere said “Hey you’re cute” or “Hey cutie” one of those things. I didn’t really say anything after he said that since I was dating the other guy at the time. Then a turn of events happened, we added each other on Facebook and started talking a lot more in September of 2010. I had bought a pre-paid phone so that I could text him from Japan for free. John wasn’t sure about long distance at first since most of you already know that it takes lots of honesty, loyalty, respect, and trust. Then on March 10, 2011 he called me while I was on my way to lunch and asked me out. Then that was where this love all began :) <3

…I said Hi I think you’re cute do you think I’m cute too. Which you don’t remember, and I didn’t know you were dating.

5: Since when have you been together?
March 10, 2011

6: What is the most random thing you know about him/her?
Hmm, he likes to play Legend of Zelda and likes all things Zelda pretty much? I guess that’s random? Haha.

She’s afraid of the dark, but watches ghost shows and scary movies. Makes no sense…

7: How do you communicate with each other?
ooVoo, text, call, letters, etc.

8: Favourite thing you’ve given him/her?
Hm, probably my handmade scrapbook I made for our one year :)

I guess the promise ring for now.

Day 9: Favourite thing she/he has given you?
I have two favorite things. My promise ring and my necklace he got for our one year anniversary that has our birth stones, names, and always and forever on the back.

The scrapbook was nice, its always nice to get things that are homemade. Star Wars on bluray is a close second though :p

Day 10: Favourite thing about him/her?
The fact that he’s always there for me whenever I need him.

There are so many things, but the top would probably be the way she treats me. Just always is showing me love.

Day 11: Pick one thing you miss (I know there are 19238923842039402394 things) and describe it in detail.
Just being together. I miss being able to hold his hand wherever we go. Or when I’m alone in the house, I wish he was here just cuddling with me. When I’m sick, having him take care of me. Or just napping together. 

^ that’s not one thing. Just being together is my answer too though. Nothing beats that feeling.

Day 12: How would you define love?
A strong emotion towards a significant other that you can’t really explain.

Day 13: What do you think is the hardest thing about distance?
Not being able to see them everyday, being there when they’re hurting or sick, or spending time with them.

Day 14: Describe a moment you had with him/her last time you were together. (If you haven’t met, describe how the perfect moment would be)
Our one year. We spent it at a cabin. I made dinner and while I was doing so, he put up candles, dimmed the lights, and made the night so romantic :)

Day 15: Favourite love (LDR or not) song?
I Don’t Mind- Defeater

Day 16: Favourite love (LDR or not) movie?
I don’t watch love movies.

Day 17: Favourite love (LDR or not) quote?
"I’d say I’ll love you forever, but forever is only the start"

Day 18: Post a picture of the two of you together. (If you don’t have one, post a picture of something you can/could relate to)

Day 19: I know there’s not one thing, but choose one of your favourite things to hear her/him say.


Day 20: Is there something you regret? (either about the relationship, or something you have done)
Yes, and I’d rather not go into it.

Day 21: Give us a little insight (as much as you’re comfortable) on your sex life (either with this person physically, or your general history, or over the phone ha, whatever you want)
Sex life, when we’re together it’s great. When we’re apart it’s good. Lol. In person is always better. But we have our moments sometimes on webcam, but not lately. 

Day 22: Share something cute. (A story, something either of you have done, a song, memory, wish, dream)
When I went to go visit him in March, I was really sick. He was there the whole way taking care of me, getting me medicine, rubbing my back, the whole nine yards.

Day 23: Do you have a song? Which one is it? (if you don’t, then what is something that always reminds you of him/her)
Oh we have a ton. Haha. 

Day 24: Describe him/her physically and emotionally/personality-wise
Oh my. John is caring, loving, sweet, kind, an all around handsome man. 

She is loving, kind, and caring. I think she has the best smile and most beautiful eyes. I could go on for quite some time but I won’t.

Day 25: One thing that he/she does that pisses you off (even if that smile will get you every time)
Not answering his phone when I go to bed so we can fall asleep together!

The worst listener I swear.

Day 26: Sweetest thing he/she has done for you
Everything :) <3

Probably the scrapbook, cause I know she spent a lot of time on it.

Day 27: If you had the money/time/connections/whatever to get him/her any gift in the world, what would it be?
An old Skyline, coilovers, and money to get him a turbo swap.

Day 28: If you could have him/her with you physically for the next 5 hours, what would you do?
Cuddle, sleep, talk about our future, and just enjoy the time with him.

Day 29: When will you see her/him next?
July 21st :)

Day 30: Where do you see your future going with him/her?
All the way. Already have the promise ring → engagement → marriage → family

#30 day ldr challenge  

It’s great

The feeling that you have with your significant other. You know it’s almost been thirteen months now that I’ve been with the man I love. We’ve been through ups and downs, and those stupid emotional roller coasters, but I wouldn’t have wanted to go through it with anybody but him. I absolutely love the fact that we talk about our future. Cause (speaking for myself) I know he’s the one I’ll be with for the rest of my life. And I’m sure he’ll tell you the same thing about me. (Too cocky?) The other day I was watching Bridezillas and was telling John that I hope I won’t become one. We’re wanting to get married on the same day we started dating. I thought it’d be more romantic. At first I wanted the whole sha-bang the big fancy wedding, but after having John saying how it’s more of a personal day, and all that matters on our wedding is us too. So probably going to have just more of a small personal wedding with just family and close friends. Wanna know what’s so great about planning this wedding? We’re not even engaged yet. This is why I love the fact that we always talk about our future together. It gives me hope and just high optimism that our relationship is going to be great. Well, it already is :P

Other things we talk about is our finances. This is why I’m happy I got a man who knows his money. We’re going to be saving up to about five grand, so that we have enough money for me to go out there and get a house. That’s right. A house instead of an apartment. Big leap huh? I believe that we’ll make it though. Only thing is, for us to move all my stuff to VA from UT is that he’ll have  to fly down here and we’ll have to get a U-Haul and drive all the way back. That’s going to be a long ass drive /: I’m not really looking forward to that lol. What’s good is though, my dad’s offering to give us couches that are in really good shape and an entertainment center to put in our house. I’m just really hoping my dad will let me keep my bed >.< Is it weird I’m already planning the layout of our house? :P Okay well I’m just going to stop here. Just random thoughts!


I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but I feel lucky to have a boyfriend who accepts my body the way it is. I know it’s not like the magazines or anything of the sort. I have more meat on my bones, I’m not really attractive, I used to have low self-esteem. But hearing pretty much everyday my boyfriend calling me beautiful and that I don’t need to change anything makes me feel amazing. It’s just great to hear that I don’t need to change whatsoever. 

→ x-visions: I don’t think many couples realize how lucky they are to have their...


I don’t think many couples realize how lucky they are to have their significant other in the same place as they are. The fact that they get to hold hands, kiss each other, or even be with each other whenever they may please, makes me jealous. I’m 2090 miles away from my soul mate, my best friend. And we don’t get to see each other whenever we would like to. I just recently came back home from visiting him for nine days after six months of not seeing him. To the couples who have had the luxury of never having to get to your checkpoint, and turn around and having to say bye til the next few months you see them, I envy you. In other ways, I feel lucky to have this opportunity to be in a long distance relationship. It tested my trust, responsibility, and honesty. Being in a long distance relationship, teaches you new things. You learn about the other person in a whole new way. I love that both John and I took the chance at this. We found each other, he’s my one and only and I plan on marrying this man one day. All we’re doing is saving up so that I can move over to Virginia and start our lives together and not be so far away.
