10 Responses Single People Give When Asked About Valentine's Day Plans

This list is not coming from nowhere; believe me, I've made my share of excuses. At this point, Valentine's Day is just another day spent appreciating others, and I think that is wonderful. For all the single people out there, you know this question is always asked around this time of year and there are always different answers. Here's a compilation of a few answers I've heard (or given) to the question, "What are your plans for Valentine's Day?"

1. "I'm just spending the day loving myself."

When I first heard this answer, I was like, "Yes! You should be practicing self-love that day!" However, I've since changed my stance a little bit. We should be loving ourselves every day. Yet it offers us an extra excuse to love ourselves, so go for it!

2. "Nothing. The real holiday is Feb. 15, when all candy is on sale."

Honestly, I like the principle behind this one.

3. "Watching romantic movies and crying."

The brutally honest answers are my favorite. A good cry can be cleansing, and taking a day to let yourself be completely in touch with your feelings is not a bad idea.

4. "I'll be making jokes all day about how I'm single."

This one came from a conversation between myself and a good friend as we discussed this question. What better way is there to combat loneliness than making jokes?

5. "I'll be drinking wine."

Another one of my favorite responses.

6. "Is that Saturday or Sunday?"

The right way to approach Valentine's Day sometimes is to be completely unaware that it's happening.

7. *Laughs*

Some of my favorite people have responded this way. It's an lighthearted way to say, "You know the answer."

8. "I'll just be with friends."

This. This. Spending Valentine's Day with loved ones embodies (loosely) the whole point of the holiday. The day should be spent celebrating the love you have for yourself and others.

9. "The same thing I do every other day."

You do you, my friend. I will be with you on that one.

10. "Sleeping?"

It's not a bad day to catch up on sleep if you're not about the celebration part of it. A big part of loving yourself is making sure you have everything you need, so take the day to do whatever it is that you need to.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
