Why It Is Totally OK To Be Single On Valentines Day

Bring out the pink fuzzy handcuffs. It is that time of year again. The day that couples book romantic getaways and fulfill their kinky fantasies. You got it: Valentine's Day. Usually, us single people shudder when seeing the cheesy teddy bears and boxes of chocolates staring at us through store windows. Going out in public on V-day? Forget about it. Who wants to see all those happy couples anyway.

But somehow through all of the pain, we manage to make it through this lonely holiday. How do we do it? Who f***ing knows?

Oh wait ....

Now, I know what you are thinking. We spend this holiday wallowing in our tears of desperation and mask the loneliness with pounds of chocolate. We constantly check our phones and secretly hate on our friends and their stupid Instagram pictures featuring heart eye emoji captions and their significant other. While this is most likely what I will be doing, many of us should decide to turn this holiday into a day of celebration. A day to celebrate all the single people out there in this world. Let us unite on this horrid Hallmark holiday.

Let us take a moment and think, why are we stressing out about not having a person to spend this "special day" with? Because, honestly, I'm just in it for the free food, but there are people who genuinely become depressed on V-day.

So here is a little advice if you're that person: one day there will be a person who you're meant to spend Valentine's Day with, heck maybe your whole life with. One day you will have someone to post stupid or cute Instagram pictures with and your single friends, well they will be secretly hating on you too. It will make up for all the other V-day's you spent alone wallowing in self-pity and it will totally kick every other V-day's a**. Be patient for your day. It'll come.

But don't forget that the best part of V-day is when it's finally over. When the shelves of candy are marked down by 60 percent or more and we can buy endless boxes of chocolate to indulge in. We can sit in our beds and pat ourselves on the back because we did it. We survived another lonely V-day. And of course, the best part of being single on Valentine's Day?

You don't have to share that large cheese pizza you bought for yourself.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
