I wouldn't be caught dead out on Valentine's Day.

We all know Valentine's Day is a scam (and no, I am NOT just saying that because I am woefully, painfully single...) to make us spend money and make others feel bad about being single, so why can't we just agree to collectively ignore it?

Why do we have to suffer through such a ridiculous "tradition" year after year when all it does is serve to make most people even more miserable than they already are? I feel this way about most holidays, but Valentine's Day is the biggest rip off Hallmark ever came up with. So this year, I'm boycotting it. I'm sure you could find some constructive ways to fill up your time too. Such as...

1. Watch every episode of 'Ancient Aliens'

2. Clip your dog/cat/chinchilla's toenails

salem

3. Catch up on all that homework I know you're not doing

4. Have a root canal


5. Watch Fox News

6. Read a microbiology textbook

7. Talk to your full-grown cousin about his obsession with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic


8. Listen to a baby cry for 10 consecutive hours


9. Break a nail


10. Listen to your relatives argue about politics


12. Watch the new Disney Channel shows


13. Go to a funeral

14. Rearrange the furniture


I know I wouldn't be caught dead on a Valentine's Day date...

Unless maybe the right guy asked me.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12952

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
