I’ve Never Had A Valentine’s Day Date And, Plot Twist, I’m Not Freaking Out

I'm totally OK riding solo.

I’ve Never Had A Valentine’s Day Date And, Plot Twist, I’m Not Freaking Out
Juan Carlos

With Valentine's Day right around the corner I, once again, am finding myself dateless. However, I don't really care. I'm okay with not having a date, or getting any of those cheesy gifts. Side note, if you propose on Valentine's Day, *gags*, I think you're the worst.

I guess I don't really understand the concept of Valentine's Day. Why do we have to have one specific day to show our love for someone. I get that it must be nice, get all romantic, but still, I think it's even nicer if it's random. I would like to do something like that on my own, or be surprised with it.

Also, everything is so crowded and crazy that day for people going out, I don't want to deal with any of that. So even if I did have a date, I ain't going nowhere, that's a promise. I don't even care if I did anything that day.

I think there is so much hype about that day and so much pressure to find a date. I'm here to tell you, it's okay to be single. Hell, treat yourself. I've done that before. It really isn't that big of a deal to not have a date on Valentine's Day.

I've never had Valentine's date, and I'm frankly not very concerned or worried about it.

I don't feel like I need to have one or am missing out on much. I'm sure that one day when I finally do have a date I might find it nice, but I don't know. For now, I'm okay facing the day solo.

However, my birthday is on Valentine's Day, so I suppose that's part of the reason I don't really mind not having a date because it's still kind of all about me. Ignoring that fact though, I really don't mind.

I believe that people can be single on Valentine's Day, and be perfectly fine. Take the day to yourself. Maybe order some take out and watch a movie, or maybe you have a "single's" party, I don't know, but you can still have fun. Being single on Valentine's Day doesn't have to be the worst thing.

The most I do for Valentine's is get the kids at my daycare little gifts. I've also gotten my friends gifts before. Valentine's Day doesn't just revolve around couples, it's about love in general. Treat your friends, your family, etc. Show them that you love them.

I am happy to be spending the day on my own. I get to go to work, celebrate with the kids, maybe have a drink that night, all I know is that I'm going to be happy, that it's going to be a good day.

What are your thoughts on Valentine's Day? Do you have a date? Do you care if you don't? If you are single, what are your plans? I'd love to know.

Another side note, looking for a date? I'm available! Just kidding. Well, I am available, but unless you want to stay home and play board games or something, try again.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
