Valentine's Day

So. Valentine's Day. Yippee. Another year where a whole day of my life is spent wallowing in self pity becaaause.... Yup. You hit the nail on the head. I'm single. That song Lonely by Akon comes to mind.

Oh, I have a story for you, before I start depressing you- I'll set the scene:
A few years ago, 'twas Valentine's Day, and I was walking down the corridor at school (I shan't mention when, or where) As 'twas Valentine's Day, I was rather miserable, and suddenly, someone throws a bunch of (plastic) roses at me :0 (I know, I was as shocked as you are) I looked around, wondering who had accidentally flung them at me, because it had to have been a mistake, but the corridor was very crowded and I couldn't tell who had done it. I never found out the truth...

Strangest Valentine's Day ever :L (And here's a random Valentine's Day themed picture. I thought it was cute)

Anyway, here are some facts about my (usual) Valentine's Day traditions:

  • I'm always single
  • My mp3 player must be sentient, because it plays all the saddest and loneliest and heartbroken songs it can find- on SHUFFLE.
  • I have to go to school and watch all the other couples within a 2ft radius being all like 'I love you,' 'No, I love you more'. Bleugh. (Not that I'm bitter or anything like that)
  • I end up sitting really awkwardly  in the midst of my friends (the majority of whom are couples) and try not to feel depressed and lonely on my own. It's like couple haven at my school- yuk. (I swear I'm not bitter)
Actually, I'm gonna digress a little bit here and tell you that I walked into the Study Area at school and there were at least five guys writing out Valentine's Day cards for girls. Come on- that's sooo sweet and thoughtful...and so depressing :(

But, on a lighter note, here's some benefits to being single on Valentine's Day:

  • You don't have to share your chocolates with anyone :D

Oh, okay, that's the only one :L

Enjoy your Valentine's Day x

After post musings: Hmm, maybe I should make myself an Anti-Valentine's Day playlist on my laptop- that way, I'll listen to all the feel good songs, and avoid any rubbish about "near, far, wherever you are" (take that Celine!)


Leave me a comment and I'll get back to you asap!
