Things You Should Do For Yourself This Valentine's Day

It is almost Valentine's Day, the day of love. Some people love the day, some people hate it. Some people are in relationships, some people are single. Whether you are in a relationship or on your own this Valentine's Day, don't forget to show yourself some love. It is great to show yourself some love and appreciation once and awhile, and what better time to do so than on Valentine's Day?

Below are 10 things you can (and should) do for yourself this week.

1. Buy yourself chocolate covered strawberries

Really, get yourself whatever your favorite special treat is. Mine just happens to be dark chocolate covered strawberries (hint hint)

2. Take some time for yourself, just to relax and be peaceful.

Whatever you like to do on your own, whatever makes you feel calm, take time to do it. You deserve it.

3 Watch your favorite movie

That movie that you have been wanting to watch, that maybe no one else wants to watch? Watch it.

5. Enjoy a nice meal

Stop and pick up YOUR favorite meal. Everyone has one.

6. Take a bath

Nothing says rest, relaxation, and self-love like a long bath with music, candles, tea, and maybe even some chocolate.

7. Treat yourself to some ice cream

There is literally never a wrong time to eat ice cream.

8. Take a day trip

Go out somewhere new, somewhere exciting, somewhere different. You don't have to go far. You don't have to spend a lot of money. Just grab some friends or a significant other, and do something out of the ordinary.

9. Show love to someone else

Whether you do something nice for someone, give someone a hug, or smile at a stranger, just make sure to show some love to someone else. Nothing does the heart well like loving another.

I hope this Valentine's Day is your most love filled day yet, and that you show yourself the love you always should.

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

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.
