The Singles Guide to Valentine’s Day

Who says you need a boo to have fun on Valentine's Day?

The Singles Guide to Valentine’s Day
Maira Gallardo

It's almost that time of year where everyone seems to be exceptionally in love. Of course, I'm referring to Valentine's Day, a day where single people are reminded by just how single they are. If you find yourself in this category, no fear, because there are so many fun things for you to do on Valentine's Day without a boo.

Firstly, it's important to not give in to the idea that you need a significant other to enjoy yourself, because having yourself is really enough. For example, you can and should use this day as an excuse to indulge and treat yourself, as I've done in the past. Whether it's going out to a restaurant you want to try with friends, having a shopping day or simply just getting some rest, use this day to focus on yourself. The best thing you can do is to plan something for yourself so that you don't find yourself lonely or possible saddened by the thought that you are single. To prevent this, just go out either by yourself or with some friends, and do something that interests you or something you enjoy. Another thing you can do is throw a party. It doesn't have to be Valentine's Day themed either. Having a small or large group of people in your company is a sure way to forget about your singleness. When you have a day like this to yourself, a great way to celebrate it is by participating in creative activities. For instance, you can go to a cooking or baking class, or if you know how to do those things already, try making a new dish or treat that you'll feel proud of. Another way to be creative is to learn something new. Engaging yourself in a new task or challenge is accomplishing and rewarding, so allow your independent self to try something new.

While the list of things to do if your single is endless, the point remains clear and equal: You don't need a lover to enjoy Valentine's Day. Whatever you love doing, do it, and take pride in your independence.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
