14 Single Girl Things To Do On Valentine's Day
Grayson Hunter

Disclaimer: I enjoy Valentine's Day regardless of my current relationship status. If you are in search of an anti-Valentine article, get on somewhere.

So here it is, folks. Your saving grace for a day that you could very well be dreading. 14 ways that you can genuinely enjoy a day that celebrates all things lovey-dovey. Because let's be real, 2017 has potential for sure, but some days it starts acting like 2016. Ain’t nobody got time for a Valentine's Day that reflects ANYTHING like the year 2016. Ya feel?

1. Make reservations for two at a nice restaurant.

Spend some time "waiting" for your significant other to join you. (PRANK there is no significant other, but your waiter doesn’t know that). Order the filet WITH the crabmeat on top. Get the dessert special too. When the check comes, pull out the tears, because you just got stood up on Valentine’s Day!! The nerve!! (Cross your fingers that the waiter sympathizes enough that they put your check on the house). #win

2. Pizza Hut has a Valentine Bundle for $13.99.

Get a one-topping, heart-shaped pizza and your choice of dessert. (This was copied directly from their website you’re welcome) ((Get a large while you’re at it))

3. Buy your bestie gal laser lip hair removal, because what’s more romantic really? Shout out to my EV sisters.

4. I’m a strong believer in the healing power of a solid chick flick. Venture out with it a little, though. Pride and Prejudice. Solid choice.

5. Take a trip to your local dog shelter and see if you can rent a sweet pup for the day.

They can’t show up late to pick you up, underdress, or even cop an attitude over something entirely irrelevant. Let’s hear it for dogs!

6. Take a step back from your possible self-pity over not having someone to love on ya this year.

Make some chocolate covered strawberries and bring them to some widows that you know. Everybody needs a little happy on heart day, especially when they’re missing a loved one.

7. Buy yourself one of those obnoxiously massive stuffed bears.

Why? They’re soft and warm and don’t have bony shoulders when you cuddle with them. #praise

8. Read some scripture on God’s fulfilling, all-consuming love. (1 John 4:7-12, Romans 8:37, 1 John 3:1)

9. Write a letter to a friend who lives far away.

No matter how cliché it may seem, snail mail truly is a dying art. Keep the sweet letters circulating.

10. Get a squad and try to find a concert close by.

I think some of the very best mems are made jamming out. Maybe even hop the barricade into the VIP section? #infiltrators #neverforget #anythingforNickJonas

11. Go to Target. (this applies for a multitude of situations that can be difficult in life)

12. *the following does not apply to the faint of heart/timid* Walk around a heavily populated area and find couples walking while holding hands.

Squeeze your way in between them or try and fit your hand in with theirs. I guarantee you’ll never forget doing something that #extra.. and they surely won’t forget it either.

13. I believe in working the system. You know what working the system includes? Waiting until February 15th to buy 50% off box(es) of chocolate. (For your sake, I hope you apply the “es” and buy multiple boxes because this is America gosh dangit)

14. Spend some time in prayer over your future spouse.

All jokes aside, this day can be hard for a multitude of reasons. Pour out that hurt to Jesus. He’s hugging you so tight today.

Aside from these tips, I think the very best way to go into this day is with a grateful heart. Be so happy for your friends who are so in love. Our world sure does need a lot of husbands and wives who simply adore each other. Your person is coming, sweet one! Have fun today. 2017 is on the rise, starting with February 14th. Tackle the heck out of it!

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.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
