My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a half with very few hiccups. We've probably fought less than five times in the entirety of our relationship, we travel together, I've met his family a few times, etc. Lately he's been stressed because he just started grad school and is about to quit his job to be in school full-time (which I have been 100% supportive of). Last weekend we got into an argument. It was the first pretty weekend of the year and I was in a great mood. He was sour all day, and despite my best efforts at cheering him up, he was just bringing me down. When we got home I told him how frustrated I was. We got into an argument. He left, and I haven't seen or heard from him in 8 days. I'm trying to give him his space and not contact him. But now I'm starting to wonder if he's actually going to come back? I didn't think the fight was big enough to lead to all of this... Why haven't I head from him?

It sounds like he found an excuse to pick a fight with you and it probably relates to the underlying reason for why he was on a bad mood. The reason may concern your relationship but it could be unrelated.
You need to talk with him to find out what is below the surface. What you don't want is another argument. To guard against that, why don't you invite him to meet you somewhere for lunch? You will have fewer arguments when you meet in a public venue and fewer arguments when you meet during the daytime.0
