Ahhhh...Valentine's Day. The one day a year is expected of you to go to a fancy dinner and after that go home together. *wink*

However not everyone has someone on this chocolate-filled day. Some people try and get blind dates just to be with someone. Great for them!

But if you don't have a significant other or a cat to spend Valentine's Day with, here are 5 reasons you shoukd be excited too! Apart from the hundreds of reasons to be sad lol.

1. Discount Chocoate

The days leading up to Valentine's are CRAZY! But the days after, all that chocolate no one bought is now 75% off! Get them candies!

2. Less Pressure

Giphy

Some people feel so pressured on the right gift, the right dinner, the right chair! You can sit home and maybe cry and watch netflix in your pjs!

3. SAVE MONEY!

Giphy

A lot of us are broke college students to begin with. Save your coins!!

4. Flirting

Giphy

some people are a bit more "willing" you can say on this day. Go meet a handsome stranger and flirt because you have zero commitments !

5. Zero Expectations

Giphy

You are not inevitably disappointed if your night doesn't turn out like planned, because you have no plans! Be spontaneous or sleep all day! Both are good

You're not the only single person in the world! Don't let one day ruin your life!! Also some pizza joints sell heart shaped pizzas, so buy yourself one!

College can be a very stressful experience to prepare for. From orientation to selecting your classes for the semester, your responsibilities quickly pile up. On top of all that, you also have to find somebody who you will be sharing a room with for your first year of college.

After not sharing a room with my sister for several years, I was worried about going back to splitting a living space with someone else. Immediately after I finished submitting my application to finalize my commitment to Temple, the stress of finding a roommate sunk in. Rooms in the residential hall I wanted were filling up quickly, and I still didn't have a roommate.

I was trying to find a roommate, but everybody seemed to already have their living situation figured out. However, one day, I received a message from a girl named Tori. Little did I know, she would become my best friend. I saw her profile prior to on RoomSync, an app for finding roommates, so I was really excited when she messaged me.

We didn't meet until move-in day, which made me a little bit anxious, but right from the start, everything clicked. We have lots of similar interests and living standards. Even though our majors are totally different, hers being biology and mine is English, that didn't stop us from being friends and enjoy spending time with one another.

In just the first weekend, Tori discovered that I hadn't seen a lot of movies that I should have seen growing up. From that point on, she created a list of various movies, and every weekend we watched at least one movie together. I don't think she has shown me a movie that I haven't liked yet, and I'm so glad that we started this tradition.

On top of movies, Tori has also expanded my music taste, which is a very hard thing to do. I couldn't be happier that she introduced me to Dean Lewis and Noah Kahan and then persuaded me to go to their concert in October with her. In general, she has got me more into music and is increasing my knowledge about music overall.

As well as going to a concert together, we also recently went to see my favorite Youtubers when they came to Philly. When we found out that Cody Ko and Noel Miller were going on a comedy tour and coming to our city, we immediately planned to buy tickets. It was a night full of laughs, and I'm so happy I got to spend it with her.

Having a random roommate who is also your best friend is rare. I've heard a lot of horror stories about random roommates, but I honestly can't picture not being friends with Tori. Along with being an amazing roommate, she is incredibly selfless and caring. Her focus is always on helping people, and I admire her for all the hard work she puts into everything she does.

Being surrounded by people in the College of Science and Technology, I know it isn't easy. Because I have a strong dislike of science, I give major props to Tori and her friends in CST. I'm so happy she is studying something she's truly passionate about and will love doing in her future career. Whenever I meet people that want to pursue a career in science or the medical field, I immediately give them immense credit. It's extremely difficult to take that career path, and I'm already excited for Tori and her ultimate success.

College is a time for making new friends that will last even after you stop going to school together. Even though I'm only in my second semester, I know I can trust Tori with anything, and she'll be there for me when I need her. I also know that she'll be 100% honest with me when I need guidance or advice.

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to Tori for messaging me to room with her. My college experience has been incredibly positive thus far because she has been with me through it all. I'm extremely grateful for the way things worked out because I couldn't have asked for a kinder roomie.

Thank you, Tori, for not just being an incredible person and roommate, but my best friend as well.

P.S. I can't wait to bake with you in our apartment together next semester!

To The Song That Reminds Me It Will Be Alright Again

Thank you Sugarland for Little Miss!

Do you ever have a connection with a song?

Yes, well me too.

Sometimes life gets tough and you wanna give up. Sometimes people beat you down and it makes you afraid of love. Sometimes there are fears that you need to conquer.

There is a band named Sugarland and they have a song titled Little Miss. That song is my song that I have a connection with.

The first two lines describe a girl who is down on love, ready to give up, and just one big mess.

Here lately that girl is me. Sometimes life can beat you down and you you can feel caught in a hurricane. That's okay because it will get better. The chorus of that same song says that it's alright and sometimes you gotta lose 'til you win. This is all so true.

I'm the girl that does not like failure and does not settle for anything less than the best. Especially when it comes to school. While school is not failing it is tough. School has never been tough for me, but this semester and last semester have very much had me wanting to give up.

That's okay it's okay to feel that way as long as you remember if you do your best you'll go far. In fact those are other words Sugarland sings in Little Miss.

Also being a girl that has never really had time for relationships when anything new and fun with a boy gets started I immediately put all my eggs in one basket. DO NOT DO THIS. Please take my warning. Just like in the song I have a big heart that beats wide open.

While I times I seem rude, mean, intimidating, whatever other adjectives people use to describe me I'm very loyal and dedicated. When I put my heart into something you are going to get nothing less than the best. Just like with school I always give so much.

Finally I am a big mess and life is a whirlwind almost 95% of the time for me sometimes I have to take a step back and realize that everything does not have to be awful.

I have to realize that everything is going to be alright.

So find that song that you connect with. Then thank that song for existing. I'm beyond thankful Little Miss exists because sometimes I just have to max it out in the car and sing at the top of my lungs. After I do that I know everything will one day fall in to place and be alright again.
