12 Options If You Are Single On Valentine’s Day

With Valentine's Day looming, those of you who are single may be contemplating what you will be doing on the holiday. Well, here are a few options to explore.

1. Treat Yo Self


Just like on Parks & Recreation, you can treat yourself in the best ways possible. Do whatever you want, and have fun. Make it a day about you. Do several things that puts you in good spirits and makes you fulfilled. Just enjoy yourself.

2. Self-care


Very similar to Treat Yo Self, but, in this instance, you will specifically be doing things that you believe will make you feel well and relaxed, even if it is not necessarily fun. Massages, yoga, beauty pampering, saunas, hot tubs, meditation, acupuncture sessions, and casual walks are all examples of certain things you can do in the name of self-care. Indulging in some of these practices, could lead you to a healthier and more relaxed mental and physical existence.

 3. Day Trip


Though this year the holiday falls on a weekday, you can spend the day or the remainder of the day venturing on a hike, going to a park, going to a beach, and going to an ice-skating rink, all dependent on where you live and how the temperature is on the day. But, essentially, seize the day!

4. Movie Marathon


When is it not a good time for a movie marathon? And I am sure you have several options at your disposal. Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Star Wars, Lord of The Rings, the Ocean series, Chucky, Paranormal Activity, and the Before series are all great examples of movies to pummel through.

5. TV Binging


Okay, so aside from movies, there are also television shows too. You may behind on some tv shows, so this may be the opportunity to catch up on said tv shows. Or, there may be some rerun tv shows that always put you in a good mood that you can rewatch. But, on the off-chance you are unsure of what to watch, consider some of these television shows: Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, The Big Bang Theory, Law & Order: SVU, Family Guy, Black-ish, and The Flash.

6. Dessert Delights


Everyone loves desserts, so everyone probably does not need much convincing on that point. Grab the cake and ice cream!

7. Shopping Spree


If you have some money to spare, this may be the day to put some of that money to use. Check out some of your favorite stores and update your wardrobe. So, feel free to hit 5th Avenue, the mall, and shopping strips for a thrilling day.

8. Chef It Up!


Often, cooking can be an enjoyable experience. Create your own menu and be your own chef. Try to make something new, and get creative with the ingredients. Make sure to grab a glass of wine too, to assist.

9. Party For One


Hook up the speaker, set the playlist, and get the partying. Listening, singing, rapping, and dancing to music you love could be so much fun. And if you are really a lover of music, you can get this party started and never stop.

10. Casual Conversation of Interest


Start up a conversation with someone you always wanted to talk to. Talk about something you both have similar interest in, and see where the conversation goes.

11. Hanging With The Fellas


Sometimes you just want to hang with the guys, and maybe you could with those who are available. Chilling with the guys and unwinding could be just what you need.

12. Galentine’s Day


Yes, another Parks & Recreation reference. But, hanging with your ladies and showing your affection for them could be what makes your day great.

So, being single on Valentine's day could be just as enjoyable as if you were not single. Have fun, and have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

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.
