Five Thing To Do While Single On Valentine's Day

This time of year may have a few of us feeling a little down. It's hard to escape the chocolates, rose's and the overly romantic couples that everyone secretly hates. Why limit this day to just couples? There is nothing more powerful than loving yourself. Here are five ideas to do on Valentine's day solo.

Take Yourself Out To Eat

Why complain about being single? The hardest decision a couple makes is where to dine. It's time consuming and frustrating. All you have to do is pick and go. You don't have to wait around for anybody. You do not have to worry about the tab being too high, what to talk about, if you have food on you're teeth, it's liberating. Now go treat yourself to something nice.

Go To The Movies

Everyone knows that you practically have to sell your body for snacks at the theater. But I know someone who doesn't even have to think about that, It's you! You'll be walking out with some money still in your pocket. Go see that movie you're dying to watch.

Go Shopping

I know there's that one thing you've been itching to buy. Something you kept holding off because it wasn't the right time. Well that right time is right now. While the others are going to be transmitting bacteria between their mouths, you will be very happy spending your money on yourself. Howdowdat.

Chill With Single Friends

They say great minds think alike, dial your friends and make some great plans. You will be having so much fun you'll forget that you are forever alone. Create memories with these characters and go and have an awesome time.

Netflix and Chill With Yourself

Not the sexual meaning, I mean if you want to go that direction I literally can't stop you. Pick your favorite movie, surround yourself by the aroma of your favorite food, and treat yourself to relaxation. Yes, half the world is making babies somewhere in their mom's basement. Well we have enough babies in this world and you aren't contributing so feel proud of that.

Valentine's day is about love, so love yourself and hard. There is NOTHING wrong with being single but there is something wrong with thinking that there is something wrong with being single. You have a sea full of fishes ready to be hooked on you.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
