Oh that joyous occasion which we all call, 'Valentine's Day' or the one day where everyone who is dating someone likes to remind everyone by rubbing the perpetual singleness in their faces.
*Breathes in deeply*
Ahh, just smell that angst in the air.
Seeing as how I will be spending mine most likely working, reading books, and then eating a butt-load (That's a lot of butts!) of food that's probably not the healthiest option, I decided I'd blog about it before this grand day arrives to spread a little positivity to those who also find themselves without that special someone they use to cuddle with, steal food from, and secretly dance battle with (Regardless if they want to acknowledge it or not, because they are scared of your slick slack kit kat moves and be overcome by your swooniness)
So, the new year starts and you put your game face on. This year WILL be my year! You war cry to yourself as you set off in the hopeful month of January. You don that war paint (Makeup), you strap on your weapons (Heels), and dip your hands in the blood of your enemies to remind you what your ultimate goal is (Nail Polish, and hopefully not the blood of your enemies. Hopefully)
Valentine's Day is Coming.
But oh yes, it is happening. The very day that you said you'd be prepared for has come and you, once again, are not prepared. It doesn't take long before people are getting into relationships weeks before Valentine's Day, crushes are being imagined out of thin air, female kind who hadn't looked good the entire first month of the year with their no-makeup, no filters, ugg boots and yoga pants combination with the 'messy bun' that is actually a racoon's nest, are starting to appear in red slimming dresses with makeup skills that put your stylish grandma to shame, and guys are starting to spotlight girls they fancy. None of which fall on you. Even that one chick you swore was actually a guy has someone ask her to be their date for Valentine's Day and you're beginning to think the only option you'll have left is your pet, who is starting to avoid you with a shifty look in its eye.
You know you're getting out of hand, but you can't stop yourself. It won't happen again, not like last year and the year before that and the last thirteen years of your life.
But then it comes, that dreadful day filled with heart eyes and the sound of people calling each other icky pet names and the sound of your own gagging.
BUT, in all seriousness, if you do find yourself alone this Valentine's Day for 2015, do not fret! Do not lock yourself away and turn yourself in Gollum while you cry about how there are no good men/women out there anymore and eat yourself into a stupor or coma-like state. No, stop, and put that chicken wing away. You're better than this.
Valentine's Day is just another day of the year, a holiday amidst the thousands of holidays we have. Have you heard of, 'National Hug Day' or 'National Nutella Day' ? No! Because people fixate so much on having someone for Valentine's Day. It is one day of the year, and if you're in a relationship every day you should be showing in small ways that you love that person, not bulking that up for one day when everybody else will be doing the exact same thing. And if you're single on Valentine's Day, don't sweat it. A positive thought that can keep you excited in these next couple of days is the fact that a lot of Chocolate will be on sale, and it will be a glorious sacrifice for how many pimples you're going to get by how much chocolate you'll be eating.
For me, I will be most likely staying at home and chilling out to maybe Skype with a friend (If she wants) and link her a large quantity of really cheesy fandom pick up lines/Valentine's Day cards or writing my novel which has taken a break for far too long for my liking. OR writing another blog post! Do what you love and do what you are passionate about and this Valentine's Day will be one that will pass without any problem.
That or you can watch Lilo and Stitch while all your friends live out Disney Princess Stories.
