It strikes me that Valentines day is really pretty much a useless holiday. If you're [i]with[/i] someone, it can be fun, but mostly it sort of sucks when you're single. You see everyone around you getting excited about their big dates, their dinners and their romantic comedy movies. None of these things are particularly high on my list, though.
I personally like to treat the fourteenth of February as nothing special, but that is not always feasible, of course. Walking into the dining hall on campus, or even just into the hallway of my own dorm, finds me bombarded with pink hearts, roses and little cupids. There is nothing inherently [i]wrong[/i] with this, of course, it just seems to me that more than a day to celebrate romantic love (which I think people in relationships ought to do more often [i]anyway[/i]) it seems to succeed more in rubbing singleness in the faces of those who are unattached.
For those who [i]are[/i] attached, Vday has always struck me as over commercialized. Cards, flowers, hearts, candy, everywhere you look you see something to 'show your love,' but I sort of see it being a way to make up for not showing that love the other 364 days a year. Why do we need to single out this one day? It really doesn't make sense to me.
Well, there's my rant for valentines day. That being said, I hope that everyone out there has a good one, whether single, in a relationship, pro-valentines day or anti-valentines. Whatever the case... It's only 24 hours, and tomorrow is a new day.

It's been a ridiculous week (all two days of it). Luckily I'm only...Oh, I don't know, two days outside of finishing this course. Yay for summer classes. Heh. AND I get to go home this weekend, which is a major plus. Even if I DO have to ride the greyhound.
Anyway, what made this a ridiculous week? It actually started LAST week. I had a test, so I didn't get much sleep since I was studying. Then I went home (somewhat foolishly) for my little brother's high school graduation. You only graduate once, right? Right. So I didn't sleep, pretty much, while I was home because I was hanging out with him. The homework I did Sunday after getting back up to school made me be up until 1:30 (since I get up at 6:30 and need about 8 hours of sleep, it was not fun), and then I found out they're not due until WEDNESDAY. As in TOMORROW. Ah well. And then I was up until 1:30 last night, and got up at 5:30 to do last minute studying. I WILL get to sleep now, yes... But I have a test on Thursday, too. *sigh*.
Anyway, I suppose that's it for my whining for now. Gosh darn anatomy class, breaking my brain. Almost done with it now, though. Not too much longer.
I don't really know what else I am supposed to write in this thing, so I think I'll just sign out now because I'm really tired and I still have to study.
Night all, don't be ascareded to send me a message. It'd make me smile to know someone doesn't think I am being foolishly whiny.
