Yes, I Have A Boyfriend But No, I'm Not In Love With Valentine's Day

Yes, I Have A Boyfriend But No, I'm Not In Love With Valentine's Day

I just want to keep it simple.

As Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, we all are beginning to see flowers, chocolates, and teddy bears everywhere.

I think it's sweet when I see couples out on nice dinners and celebrating their love for one another. I myself have a boyfriend, but I have never been in love with Valentine's day.

I am not going to show my love for him more on this particular holiday than I would any other day.

We celebrate our love each and every day. It isn't limited to a senseless holiday.

It's also sad to see how a holiday about love has turned into materialistic competition. I cannot speak for everyone or every couple, but I have seen individuals purchase a $500 watch for their significant other far too many times.

I'm sorry, but that absolutely ridiculous.

Growing up and being single on almost every Valentine's Day, I thought I would enjoy and appreciate it more if I had a boyfriend. Now, being with my boyfriend for our second Valentine's Day, I still take no interest in it.

For those of you who are die-hard Valentine's Day people, I think that's awesome! You and your significant other should do what makes you happy. This holiday just isn't my thing. I share and celebrate my love and give 100% to my relationship each and every day. Valentine's Day isn't any different.

Gifts, candies, and flowers are great, but I much rather spend my Valentine's Day snuggled up next to him instead of stressing out what fancy item to buy him this year.

I hope all of your days are full of love and happiness!

Doing Nothing All Summer Is Okay Too

It's okay to have no plans this summer.


Summer seems to roll around faster and faster every year and the question that's always asked is"what are you doing this summer?" Some people love to answer this question, maybe they have a trip planned to backpack across Europe or have a 2-week vacation in the Bahamas. My point is, everyone seems to have these big summer plans. Some people spend the whole summer traveling and are never even home, but there are always gonna be some people who, like me, have absolutely no plans this summer.

Do I wish I was traveling across Europe or spending a few weeks in the Bahamas? Sure. But in reality, my summer plans include working 5 or 6 days a week. I'm not ashamed of this and I wouldn't say I'm jealous of those traveling because I'm still determined to make the best of my summer.

There is so much pressure everywhere on Instagram and Snapchat to post all the fun things you're doing and to capture the moment. This creates the pressure that you always have to be doing something fun or spontaneous.

Summer should be whatever you want it to be. If you want to spend every day at the beach, do it. If you want to spend every day in bed or at home, that's good too. We all have different definitions of fun.

Summer has just started and everyone should make the most of their summer in their own way. My friends and I always make a bucket list of all the things we want to do by the end of the summer. None of it involves traveling or much planning, it's just little things we can do when we get bored.

Don't feel jealous when you see other people traveling this summer. Make your own fun plans, make a bucket list, and make the most of every day this summer.
