Carl gave me an iPad today. What the hell? It is so freaking awesome. I am still in shock. I already thought he was the best boyfriend ever, but this... I don't even know what to say. Besides HELL YEAH I HAVE AN IPAD. And an amazing boyfriend.

I almost feel guilty for being so excited over it. I mean, I didn't really earn it or anything. He just gave me one because I said I wanted one, and because he could. I've never had an Apple product of any sort before, but I've always admired their aesthetics. It's not my birthday or an anniversary. He just said that I'd had a rough winter, and he wanted to cheer me up. How sweet is that?

I wish I could give him something equally valuable. But I am a poor grad student. I wonder if some day I will be able to buy him fancy things. Maybe I shouldn't make a huge deal out of it. I want him to know I appreciate it, but I don't want to be overly grateful to the point of awkwardness.
