Last year I made a list of creative ways to get a kiss at midnight on New Year's, but after coming up kissless last holiday, I decided midnight kisses are for some people, but they're definitely not for me. In fact, there are a million things better than kisses on New Years. Here's a sample!

1. Confetti and Noisemakers

What's better than making out with a cute boy at midnight? Throwing confetti and blowing noisemakers in the ears of the couples who are making out at midnight.

2. Fireworks

It's midnight, you're out with friends, and there are fireworks everywhere. No boys needed.

3. Being Drunk

If you're doing things right, you won't even notice you have no one to kiss at midnight.

4. Fantasizing Your High School Musical NYE Moment

Your Troy Bolton could be hiding out anywhere and that could be the start of something new.

5. Midnight Texts From Your Mom

Because at least someone cares...

6. French Fries

Fries before guys, am I right?

7. Watching the Ball Drop

No plan? No problem. Ryan Seacrest always provides quality entertainment all night long.

8. Declaring Resolutions You Won't Keep

Because I'm totally going to lose 15 pounds, eat healthily, and start meditating every day.

9. Naps

What better way to ring in the New Year than with your favorite pastime?

10. Good Friends

Just because you don't have anyone to smooch, doesn't mean you have to ring in the New Year alone. Midnight hugs are just as great as kisses.

11. Making Money

Honestly, I work every year on New Year's Eve so the only thing I'll really be kissing is my paycheck.

12. Compile a List of Bad Decisions to Make in the New Year

Ya gotta plan ahead to be successful, ya know?

13. Sparklers

What's more fun than fire? Absolutely nothing.

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
