Yes, yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Yes. “Fuck Valentine’s Day.” Yes, we all know this. Thank you. Enough with the bulletins already two days prior to the holiday, bulletin board flooded and aggression reigning supreme. You know what? I don’t have a Valentine this year, either. In fact? I’ve NEVER had a Valentine’s Day where I could sit down and spend the night with that special someone and really get the most out of the holiday. The two years I’ve had a Valentine, they were in a another city because I was away at school. Yet, how is it that I’m not turning everything over the next two days to a foul hatred for the holiday and those who will celebrate it?

Try this: take it easy, calm down, and take a step back. You’ll be fine. Go out and have some fun with friends. Give your best friend a Valentine. I don’t know, do something. Do be sure to take note that sitting at home wallowing in your sadness will not propel your situation in a forward moving direction. No. I will go so far as to say it will hinder it.
