STORY BY CLAUDIA WILLIAMS
Just around the corner is Valentines Day, the best holiday of the year for people in relationships.
Due to the mass amounts chocolate, flowers and gifts received from significant others, what’s not to love? Well, a lot. To me, Valentine’s Day is known as “Being Single Awareness Day.”
Some people will be spending the day with their significant other, in a rose petal covered bed, sipping exquisite champagne.
While I, however, will be sitting on my dorm room futon, eating Quad quesadillas and wallowing in self-pity due to the fact that the only thing I received for the big holiday was a bouquet of flowers from my secret admirer.
Ok. From my Dad, but he does sign the card as though he is my secret admirer. He’s been doing it since I was 3 feet tall.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not one of those girls who walks around hating on people in relationships, because good for them.
That means they spend the evening eating dinner bought by their boyfriend and being adored.
I think I am just jealous.
Despite the tries and tribulations every single girl goes through on Valentines Day, there is something we can celebrate this year.
Instead of the day being thrown at the calendar on a random school night, it is now celebrated on a Saturday night.
Meaning, we get to go out and drown ourselves in sorrow with every other single girl on campus. Now that’s something to toast to, isn’t it?
