14 Things I'd Rather Do Than Go On A Valentine's Day Date

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

14 Things I'd Rather Do Than Go On A Valentine's Day Date

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


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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate
