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!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
