Ok so I started a thread awhile ago about me applying to school, but the boyfriend got mad. Well, I applied to school. He doesn't know yet, because I already know his ultimatum.
He told me that if I apply to school and move, that we would no longer be together. Ok fine. I understand his concerns. The school I want to go to for pre-vet is about 4 hours away. No biggy in my opinion I guess, but if that's how he wants to be, so be it.
He also does not know the extent of pre-vet school and how after you complete pre-vet, you need to go on to a veterinary college. I've told him a little bit about it, and he doesn't seem to want to hear any of it.
All he does is lecture me about how our relationship wouldn't work and blah blah blah. We have been together for over 3 years, and if he doesn't support my schooling, then maybe he should go down the road. Just my opinion. I sound like a mean girlfriend right now for talking smack about him on here, but it's the truth.
Now the veterinary school I want to go to is Washington State University. Now WSU is a 7 hour flight from Fargo, and a 17+ hour drive from home.
I'm not sure we could make our relationship work, let alone would I want to. Being 17 hours away is not an ideal relationship for me. He is also a jealous person. I don't even have friends anymore because none of them want to deal with him. If I go out with friends to a movie or whatever, he calls and texts all the time wondering where I am and when I am going to be home. I am not a child! I may be young, but I don't need him to be like a parental figure. I am 20 years old, and have made decisions on my own for the past 3 years.
Back to his jealousy, he thinks that I am wanting to go to school at WSU because my ex-boyfriend lives in Tacoma, WA. This is not the case. I haven't talked to my ex since we broke up, as we ended on a bad note. Another story there.
Well he is stationed in Tacoma for his military career. So my current bf thinks I am going to go to school in WA, get back together with the ex, and never come back to ND. Well I would go to school in WA, not get back together with my ex, and still probably not come back to ND. Don't get me wrong, I love ND, but not my current location.
I was stupid waiting this long to apply to school and really move forward with my life. I live in a small town of 500 people, and I'm not going anywhere in life here. I have an awesome job in the private health care industry, but as much as I love it, I love animals more, and have wanted to be a vet since the day I could talk pretty much.
What do you guys think? Sorry this is so long, I just needed to rant to someone, and since I have no friends left at home, I figured I'd come to the next best people, my horseforum buddies. Thanks to anyone who actually read this novel.
