To Everyone Who Has Never Had A Valentine, I Understand

Life, unfortunately, is not a Hallmark movie...

Dear beautiful person,

I feel you.

I am the girl who has never had a Valentine, been kissed under the mistletoe, or had a midnight kiss of the New Year. I'm a holiday virgin you may say. It's rough, I know, but it's also gonna be okay.

It sounds cheesy and I know you've heard it a million times, but the right person is out there somewhere. Every holiday is an excuse to mope around because you're single and ready to mingle, but there's nobody in your life at the moment to mingle with. That or they're completely oblivious to your feelings.

You may have pretty much, tried everything from joining 5 dating websites including Tinder to dying your hair a different color but nothing seems to work. And it sucks.

I really wish I could tell you that this Valentine's day, "The One" is going to sweep you off your feet and you're going to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after, but I can't. I'm not a psychic, which is another thing you may have tried... I won't tell anyone.

I am here to tell you though, stop using holidays as an excuse to mope around. There are so many better things to do! As for me, I curl up on the couch and spend Valentine's day with three of my favorite things: hot cocoa, cookies, and the Winchester brothers.

If you don't want to feel lonely there's always friends and family. Give them a call or a visit. Friends and family make everything better. Have a Galentines day! It'll be fun! And if you're the "single friend" then celebrate Galentines day after the 14th when chocolate is 50% off!!

And for the rest of the holidays, I know it flipping sucks that your family is going to ask a bazillion times if you're seeing anybody, but that's what family does! It's only because they care, trust me.

Life, unfortunately, is not a Hallmark movie. You may never have a meet-cute or have your Christmas spirit reinstated by a hot prince or lumberjack, but I do believe in love.

I believe in happily ever after. And it's really hard to keep optimistic, I haven't had a date for, gosh, nearing 5 years now. And I know girls who are nearing graduation and have never had a single significant other.

Waiting really, REALLY, sucks. But, just think how great it's going to be when that special someone does come along. Think about how epic it's going to be when that person you think is attractive, notices you back.

That day will come. Whether it's this Valentine's day or years from now. It's going to happen. So keep positive. Be yourself. Be confident.

It's so important to keep or even work on gaining self-confidence. Once you love yourself, that certain someone might just fall in love with you too.

I wish everyone out there the best of luck in their romantic endeavors. Who knows, maybe this year will be your lucky year.

Sincerely, a cheesy romantic gal

12 Things Only Low-Maintenance Girls Understand

I promise we aren’t lazy, just easy going.

Sometimes low-maintenance girls are looked at as lazy or sloppy. But in reality, I think low-maintenance girls are just so confident in who they are that putting in that extra effort isn't important to them.

Here are 12 things that only low-maintenance girls understand:

1. Leggings or sweat pants and a T-shirt is your normal everyday outfit

Why spend the day uncomfortable in some tight jeans or mini skirt when you can lounge around in some comfy clothes? We aren't here to impress anyone, we are just trying to sit back and chill.

2. Makeup is a special occasion

If you catch a low-maintenance girl with makeup on, take it as a compliment. We are trying to touch our face and rub our eyes as much as we'd like without makeup getting in the way. Not to mention, we wouldn't dare spend over $15 on some foundation.

3. We would rather stay in with a movie then go out for the evening

Something low-key and low stress always sounds better than spending the time, and the money, for a night out. I am perfectly content with taking advantage of my $7.99 monthly payment for Netflix.

4. You're always the first one ready

While your friends spend hours doing their hair, makeup and then finding the perfect outfit, you sit around and wait. Your 10 minutes thrown-together-look gives you time to nap while everyone else takes their sweet time.

5. When you say you "don't care what we do," you really don't care

Seriously, a date night off the McDonald's dollar menu is fine by me. I am not expecting you to wine and dine me on a big extravagant evening, I'm just trying to get a Big Mac in my mouth.

6. Your messy bun isn't a fashion statement, it's actually just your hairstyle

We aren't about to spend time curling or straightening our hair everyday. Every day is a good day to throw your hair up into a ponytail or bun.

7. The extent of your jewelry collection is one pair of earrings and maybe a necklace

Who needs more than one pair of earrings? Diamond studs match everything… right?

8. And your shoe collection is even smaller

Should I wear flip-flops or Converse?

9. Shopping isn't exactly your favorite thing to do

Who has patience for finding the perfect designer brands or finding the best fit? I am perfectly content with my T-shirts and leggings. One size fits all.

10. Your favorite gifts are the sentimental ones, not the expensive ones

A homemade card or a small gift that makes someone think of you is forever better and more meaningful than an expensive present. I don't want your money, I just want to know you thought of me.

11. You don't put in the effort to chase after a guy

I'm awesome and I know it. If a guy is worth it enough to be in my life, he can come after me. I am not down for any games or players. Just someone who embraces my low-maintenance qualities.

12. You are always the first person to help someone out

Giving your friends a ride or lending them two dollars isn't a huge deal. Just helping someone out gives you peace of mind. Everyone should have time to help a homie out.

For Camille, With Love

To my godmother, my second mom, my rooted confidence, my support

First grade, March. It was my first birthday without my mom. You through a huge party for me, a sleepover with friends from school. It included dress up games and making pizza and Disney trivia. You, along with help from my grandma, threw me the best birthday party a 7-year-old could possibly want.

During elementary school, I carpooled with you and a few of the neighborhood kids. I was always the last one to be dropped off, sometimes you would sneak a donut for me. Living next door to you was a blessing. You helped me with everything. In second grade, you helped me rehearse lines for history day so I could get extra credit. In 4th grade, you helped me build my California mission.

You and your sister came out to my 6th grade "graduation". You bought me balloons and made me feel as if moving onto middle school was the coolest thing in the entire world.

While you moved away from next door, you were a constant in my life. Going to Ruby's Diner for my birthday, seeing movies at the Irvine Spectrum and just hanging out, I saw you all the time. During these times, you told me about all of the silly things you did with my mom and dad, how my mom was your best friend. I couldn't have had a greater godmother.

In middle school, you pushed me to do my best and to enroll in honors. You helped me through puberty and the awkward stages of being a woman.

Every single time I saw you, it would light up my entire day, my week. You were more than my godmother, you were my second mom. You understood things that my grandma didn't.

When you married John, you included me in your wedding. I still have that picture of you, Jessica, Aaron and myself on my wall at college. I was so happy for you.

Freshmen year of high school, you told me to do my best. I did my best because of you. When my grandma passed away that year, your shoulder was the one I wanted to cry on.

You were there when I needed to escape home. You understood me when I thought no one would. You helped me learn to drive, letting me drive all the way from San Clemente to Orange.

When I was applying to colleges, you encouraged me to spread my wings and fly. You told me I should explore, get out of California. I wanted to study in London, you told me to do it. That's why, when I study abroad this Spring in London, I will do it for you.

When I had gotten into UWT, you told me to go there. I did and here I am, succeeding and living my best in Tacoma. I do it for you, because of you.

When I graduated high school and I was able to deliver a speech during our baccalaureate, you cheered me on. You recorded it for me, so I could show people who weren't able to make it to the ceremony. You were one of the few people able to come to my actual graduation. You helped me celebrate the accomplishments and awards from my hard work.

When your cancer came back, I was so worried. I was afraid for you, I was afraid of what I would do without the support you had always given me. When I was in Rome, I went to the Vatican and had gotten a Cross with a purple gem in the middle blessed by the Pope to help you with your treatments. It was something from me and a little bit of my mom in the necklace, the gem.

Now, sitting so far from you away at college just like you wanted me to. I miss you. I wish I was there to say goodbye.

I'll travel the world for you, write lots of stories and books for you, I will live life to the fullest for you.

You are another angel taken too early in life. Please say hello to my parents and grandma in Heaven for me.

Lots of love,

Haiden
