11 Ways You Can Survive Valentine's Day When Cupid Leaves You High And Dry

So you are alone on Valentine's Day. Don't worry, plenty of people are.

It just means you don't need to buy chocolates for anyone but yourself. All you need is the right mood and some friends to survive this Hallmark holiday. So pull out your wallet, your phone, and throw on some shoes, because I'm going to tell you exactly how to make this the best Valentine's Day you've ever. And yes, without someone to love.

1. Go get some food.

And I'm talking the best food ever. Valentine's Day is about love, and who better to love than yourself. Get some McDonalds, an Aunty Anne's pretzel, AND chocolate. (BTW everything gets discounted after Valentine's Day, so you can have some really cheap chocolate from the 15th past.)

2. Go out with friends.

Romance-love and friendship-love are miles apart, yet so closely related. Going out with friends can be just as good as going out with that cute guy or gal. So go bowling, have a sleepover, watch Disney movies on repeat. Just don't let the fact you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend ruin your night.

3. Watch movies.

Either stay in and watch Netflix or go out to see a movie. No shame in seeing something by yourself and ordering large quantities of food. Bonus points if you don't watch The Notebook.

4. Go do a photoshoot.

Either grab some friends to do it or just head out. It still gives you the chance to dress up and post fire pictures to Instagram later, not to mention the fact that you get to get out of the house and do something you don't normally do.

5. Go spoil yourself.

I'm talking going to the mall, getting Chinese, thrift store shopping, and even massages if you like those. Eat all the chocolate you want, buy all the clothes you want, and spoil yourself silly. As Donna would say, "Treat yo Self!"

6. Cook yourself a meal.

Nothing eats up the day faster than cooking, and nothing feels better than eating something that you made yourself. Maybe you can even make something for your friends and make it one large dinner party.

7. Go clubbing.

Nothing beats romance like wearing something short, black, and all that. You'll pretty much be spending the same as you would on Valentine's gift as you would getting into the club anyway. And who knows, you may find someone you like there.

8. Get Tinder and go wild.

Try to find other singles and see if they are interested in hanging with you. Who knows it'll either be a relationship or a one night stand, but either way you'll have fun.

9. Call your parents.

Not everything on Valentine's day has to do with romance, sometimes it is just calling the people you love and letting them know you're okay. Just keep in mind when you call that they actually have dates to get to while you have no romantic plans to get ready for.

10. Wear comfy clothing.

You're pretty much only dressing for yourself, so you might as well get comfy, hang back, and throw on a snuggie or go commando

11. Go to the gym.

There's nothing better than getting a good workout and a stronger body, especially when everyone else is eating out and getting chocolates.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
