Valentine's Day has become the day all single people in this day and age have come to fear or hate with a fiery passion. But what a lot of people don't always remember is that Valentine's Day doesn't have to always be for the couples. This can be the best time of year to remind your friends how much you appreciate them, how much you love and miss your family, and to work on loving yourself for exactly the way you are. A lot of us struggle with this almost every day of the year, but take this time to focus on the ones that matter to you most, even if that means yourself. Here is a list of all the things single individuals can look forward to this February fourteenth.

1. Galentine's Day!

As cheesy as the idea is, imagine just a day full of spending quality time with the ones you love the most. Whether that means having a relaxing spa day, going to a nice dinner and movie, or partying to your heart's desire. Make it the best day of the year.

2. Chocolate Roulette

This game has probably been around forever, but back in junior high, I created this game with my other single friends where we bought a box of assorted chocolate and randomly chose and you did not want to be the one with a mouthful of coconut and chocolate.

3. Overly treating yourself and not feeling bad about it

Do your nails, style your hair, or just sit in sweats and eat junk food. Do all the things that make you feel good about yourself all at once and you will end the day smiling.

4. Ask out that cute person in your English class

If you really are looking for Valentine's Day dinner date, ask out whatever guy or girl you're checking out in class. There is at least always one. Even if it's just a friend date, break the ice and see what happens.

5. Girls' Night Out

Just like Galentine's Day celebrations but go out for a night on the town. Check out the new movies, hit up the coupon deals at your favorite restaurant. Whatever you do, make sure you're having fun.

6. Make sure to hit up the discounted candy

The best part about being single on this day is that you only have to spend as much money as you want, so why not spend it on cheap candy? Where you can get as much as you want for a good price.

7. Dress to impress and make sure everyone sees you

Whether this means taking a bunch of really gorgeous selfies and posting them on every social media account you have or dressing up for the classes you have that day. I don't know about you, but sometimes it feels good to get all dolled up and watch people have to give you a double take as you walk by.

8. Laugh and cry at the stereotypical romantic comedies with your best friend

Sitting with your best friend with that discounted candy and watching all those cheesy romantic movies can honestly make anyone's night.

9. Remember you are still perfectly happy taking this time to be the best you

It doesn't matter if you're single on Valentine's Day. I used to consider this one of my favorite holidays, loving the idea of spreading love to everyone around you. I still have that mindset but now that I'm single, it's nice to have a day to just practice self-love and really make sure you are becoming the best you that you can be.

Remember that no matter how long you've been single, five days or five years, you are loved by someone in your life every day. They may not always be the person you expect but trust me, they are out there. Relationships aren't for everyone, but if you really are looking for true love, it'll be right under your nose when you're not even looking. So remember to take care of yourself during this day and every day, because you are beautiful and that is awesome.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
