Being Your Own Valentine Can Be A Good Idea

My thoughts on how being your own Valentine can be a great thing, it sure is for me.

Being Your Own Valentine Can Be A Good Idea

With Valentine's Day coming up very soon and no sign of me being in a relationship on Tuesday, I decided to write this article because I feel like it is important for those without Valentines to know they can be their own Valentine. For the last couple of years, I have been my own Valentine and I find that I quite like it and there is no shame whatsoever in it. I haven't been in a relationship that falls over Valentines Day since I was a sophomore in high school. And even back then it didn't mean very much to be in a relationship on Valentine's Day. The only thing that is really different is you have another person to share the day with and profess love to (if you love them).

Being my own Valentine has many benefits. I know what kind of chocolate and gifts I like so I can easily pick out things that I know I will love. This year I got myself a Russell Stover chocolate heart and I am so excited to try all of the different kinds of chocolates. Being your own Valentine also means you don't have to get yourself gifts the day of, you can hit up the day after Valentines Day sales and buy all the chocolate for yourself.

Being your own Valentine also gives you an excuse to spend some money and treat yo' self.

You deserve it, to have a day filled with chocolate, flowers and whatever else you decided to buy yourself. If you're like me, you bought yourself some Lush goodies to pamper yourself with. Shoutout to the Love You Lots soap; I love the smell of roses. (I also love roses in general, but that is beside the point.) Being your own Valentine can be a great thing, so never feel bad because you don't have a Valentine besides yourself.

I leave you all on this note, here is my favorite Pixar short Lava, which happens to coincide perfectly with my article.

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
