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!

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.

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.
