1. Take your significant other out to eat and carb them up

They say there is no better way to the heart than through the stomach. pro tip: if you want to go somewhere fancy be sure to make reservations as many people may also be hungry and want a fancy dinner.

2. Be original as much as possible

There's nothing more special than feeling like someone went out of their way just to make you happy. Avoid the cheesy cards with the same old dad joke pick up lines on them, unless that's what your significant other is into.


3. Try to make your own gifts

Sure we all love new and exciting things, but I believe it's so special when someone makes you an original gift because they really took the time to give you something personal. Side note: some great personal gifts to make for your SO could be a scrapbook, a video of pictures and videos of you two, a mixtape, a date jar or love coupons.


4. Have a plan for the day/ night

Out of all of the days in the year this is your one you should have for. Let's face it girls have their hopes up for some sort of date whether it be a date at a fancy restaurant or a cuddle session to your favorite movie, at least act prepared and show you want to spend your day together special.

5. Hit up Hallmark

No literally. Most Valentine's Day haters call this day just a "Hallmark Holiday" well fine if that's what they want to call it why not pay a visit to your local Hallmark and prove that their is nothing wrong with pink stuffed animals and heart shaped candies, in my opinion those things are fun anyways so why not celebrate with them.

6. "With just 4.99 you can make your girl's day."

This is a very popular saying from the female population but what does it mean? It means flowers are cheap people and they're simple. They smell nice they look nice and they make us gals feel nice.

7. Do fun things beyond "the typical Valentine's Day"

Valentine's day doesn't just have to be about dressing all fancy and going to a nice dinner. You can do lots of things, it's basically a day meant for sharing your love so why not spend it going on a series of mini dates. Spend the day binge watching your favorite shoes, making and decorating cookies, playing board games, and anything your heart desires.

8. Despite all the love and passion try to be considerate of the singles

Not sure which of the names "Valentines day" or "Singles awareness day" is easier on the ears but try to make it on the single's eyes with your SO in public.

9. Don't forget to be yourself because that's what's most important

After all of the forced gifts and fancy dinners and all of the sweetness in-between don't forget to be yourself, no matter how weird, because that is the true reason why your partner is with you and you should celebrate each other not just the holiday.

10. Basically be as extra as you can

The bigger the better? Okay maybe not, but going above and beyond does no harm in showing how much you love someone.

And if your bae is isn't taking the hints this Valentine's Day or you don't have a bae...

Or, as recommended, always

To The Senior Graduating High School In A Month

"What feels like the end, is often the beginning."

It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes. Just a little over a year ago, I was the senior that had a month left. One month left in the hometown that I grew up in. One month left with the friends that I didn’t want to leave. One month left in the place that I had called “my school” for the past four years. You are probably thinking the same things I thought whenever it came down to only 30 days left. You’re probably scared, nervous, worried, or anxious. Maybe you’re like me and are dying to get out of high school, ready to start a new chapter. Or maybe you aren’t so ready yet. Maybe you’re wishing for a little more time.

As scary as it is, this month you have left will fly by. You’ll blink and you’ll be standing in your cap and gown, waiting for your name to be called to receive your diploma. You’ll look back on your last four years at your school and wonder why time went by so fast. It’ll be bittersweet. However, trust me when I say that you have so much to look forward to. You are about to begin taking the steps to build your future. You are going to grow and learn so much more than any high school class could teach you. You are going to meet amazing people and accomplish amazing things. So, as scared as you might be, I encourage you to take that first step out of your comfort zone and face this world head on. Chase your dreams and work towards your goals. You are smart. You are brave. You are capable of achieving amazing things. All your life, the lessons you have learned have prepared you for this point in your life. You are more than ready.

There are times when you will feel alone, scared, or confused. There are times when it won’t always be easy. But those are the times when you will shine the most because I know you will work through whatever problems you may face. Don’t think of the bad times as a terrible thing. Use them all as learning experiences. As author Joshua Marine once said, “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”

You might think that this is the end. However, it’s not. This is only the beginning. Trust me when I say that the adventures and opportunities you are about to face are nothing compared to high school. Whether you are going to college, going to work, or something else, this is the beginning of your journey called life. It will be exciting, it will be terrifying, but it will all be worth it.

So, as you walk out of your high school for the very last time, I encourage you to take a deep breath. Relax. You’ll always have the memories to look back on from high school. But your time is now, it begins today. Embrace it.

Warm Weather Is Finally Here And That Means Seasonal Depression Can Go Fly A Kite

Like seriously, get out of here.

227

Any form of depression flippin' sucks. Like something major. Mental health is wicked important and sometimes crazy hard to maintain. The cold weather of winter does absolutely nothing to help either and ends up making it a lot harder to stay motivated, want to get out of bed and to ever go outside to be productive and active. Vitamin D is so detrimental to the health of our bodies. The sunshine lets us soak that up, but it's almost impossible to do when it's sub-zero for four months straight (ok, a bit of an exaggeration, but not really).

Seasonal depression brings out the worst moods during the long winter months and drags us down. What we can do is to busy ourselves and push ourselves to be the happiest we can be with enjoyable activities. Make sure you do fun things that will help you avoid being stir crazy. It's a vital time of self-care and making sure you are physically and emotionally healthy.

Once the icy force field of the winter breaks, spring flourishes and so do we. The heavyweight that was hanging on our shoulders is lifted off. We instantly feel lighter. It's an amazing feeling and so relieving. Getting through the winter in one piece feels so successful.

So, have fun now. Enjoy the fresh air and let the sunshine kiss your skin. Embrace your happy and positive thoughts. Cherish not having to wear a jacket and the fact that you need air conditioning in your car instead of heat. Roll the windows down and blast the music. Make your days include some form of outside activities and exercise. Celebrate every single aspect of the spring and summer because when winter rolls around again, you will want memories to keep you going so that when you have to do it all over again, it will go smoothly.

So, goodbye seasonal depression, we won't miss you.
