Sorry, But Valentine's Day Is Not A Holiday

It's just another day in February to me, and that's okay.

Sorry, But Valentine's Day Is Not A Holiday

It's that time of year again when we see the stores changing. The holidays are over. We can see the different type of people in the stores. Who am I talking about? Yes, that's right, I am talking about the single people, and the people in a relationship.

The Christmas decorations are long gone, and it's time to bring out the Valentine's Day decorations. This is how we find out who is single, and who is in a relationship. The men or women in a relationship are scouring the aisles of candy, cards, and flowers deciding what to get that special someone. But let's be honest, we single people must stand together and be thankful that we don't have to worry about our man or women cheating on us, and the stress and anxiety that comes with a relationship.

Don't sit at home and feel miserable because you don't have a date, or you aren't in a relationship. Go and hang out with your single friends and have a movie night and just create memories that you will remember forever. Watch a movie and laugh at the funny parts until soda comes out your nose.

If you get dumped on Valentine's Day, remember it is not your fault. It is the other person's fault because they didn't see how special, you are. If you do get dumped, it gives you the excuse to have as much ice cream as you want, except if your lactose intolerant. Well, it still gives you the excuse to eat all the non-dairy ice cream! If you are the one that got dumped, or the person doing the dumping, remember that you are the strong one. You realized something wasn't right before you married the person.

Valentine's Day is not a holiday. It's just another day in February. For the single people in the world, finding Mr. or Mrs. Right will come when we least expect it.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
