As many of you may or may not have known, there is a very special person in my life. His name is Gavin Tran. He is exactly 5’12 (6 ft) and he towers over me!! (In case you couldn’t tell in the pictures) He also has this really cute smile that lights up his entire face whenever he looks at me which gives my tummy a million butterflies! His favorite color is “forest green” which I don’t really get because don’t all greens look the same? Anyway.. he loves kit kats. He spent 5 minutes telling me about how much he loves them.. He is so silly and I’m glad that we can both be silly together! We also have a lot of inside jokes (123, thirsty, etc). He makes fun of me a lot which frustrates me sometimes, but I can never stay mad at him! It’s horrible. He also likes to rage at me whenever we play League of Legends.. sometimes it hurts my feelings because it’s just a game, but he says he wants me to “get better”. I mean.. I guess……… He’s very indecisive which makes me angry in certain situations, but that’s just who he is apparently!
Well onto a more serious note, we have been talking for about 4-5 months now, even though I’ve known him for years! It’s crazy how we both never thought much of each other until we recently began talking. Although we argue too many times to count, he brings happiness and joy to my life. When they say “The good outweighs the bad,” it’s true! I’m not going to lie, there were multiple times where we both thought of giving up, but I’m glad we didn’t because I know we’ll go far together. Even though he has just become apart of my daily life for a couple of months now, I honestly do not know what I would do without him (very, super cliche, but true).. He has changed my life so much.. for the better! He’s taught me many important aspects in life, whether it be not dwelling on the past or things as simple as focusing while driving. It may seem like common sense, but some things are easier said than done! I am clumsy, I get distracted easily, I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed (sad, but true), I get angry, emotional, and I am extremely stubborn. He tells me all the time and my stubbornness is usually the cause of his frustration, but he puts up with me. I do not know how he does it, but he does. I honestly feel so lucky to have an amazing man such as him in my life because 1) He deals with my shit.
We have been through so much together since we’ve met and this chapter of our life has just begun! Looking through our pictures makes me so happy and amazed to see how far we’ve come. It has been such an incredible adventure with him and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us. I’m glad to know that I can always count on him to be by my side, always supporting me, keeping me and my life on track! He’s like a parent… hahaha, but I know he just wants me to succeed in life and make the best of myself.
I enjoy all of the things we do together: FaceTiming, hanging out, playing League together, our late night conversations on Skype. It’s all these little things that make me happy to be with him. I’m happy to have a guy that enjoys doing pretty much the same things as I do. The time we spend together always feels too short, but that’s fine because I know I’ll see him again soon!
He was my Summer love and he’s the best thing to have happened to me this year. I know that it has only been a couple months, but I know that things will last long with him. I can’t ever lose him because despite all the arguments, tears, and frustration, he is still so perfect to me and he could never be replaced. I truly admire him because he is so determined, motivated, and intelligent. (Traits that I obviously lack) He is like my other half! It seems that every day I just seem to fall for him more and more. These past few months honestly felt all like a dream, but I’m glad to know that this is real life and my perfect man is real and mine! Like I said, our journey has just begun and here’s to this first chapter of my life with him and many more to come! ♥
