Single's Awareness Day

Hello everyone! Happy Singles Awareness Day!!!! Or, I guess for you lucky couple, happy Valentine's Day. I am truly alone this year. I had take out because both my parents are busy having social lives. I had a great day by myself though. I watched movies, ate ice cream, and watched Project Runway. I might do some homework now, but I have 0 motivation. I really wish I had a cat.

But if I ever do have a boyfriend, I want every day to be Valentine's Day. Well, not in the fact of receiving stuff. I wouldn't expect flowers and jewelry and all that every day but why shouldn't any day be full of love? I'm not a big believer of Valentine's Day. Why does this one day have to be full of nice and sweet things? Wouldn't you rather have a random day to celebrate? Why fit into the norm and conform? Hehe, that rhymed.

On another note, I've recently become friends with this guy, let's call him S. S and I have a class together and we're becoming better friends! It's really exciting because I've never had that many guy friends. He seems really excited? (I don't know that the right word is) to talk to me. We stood outside after a school meeting for about twenty minutes. . . I had just imagined a quick goodbye. We have a friendship composed of teasing and light hearted jokes. We're really different people. He's more of a serious, tired, doesn't smile much type of person person and I'm an energetic ball of enthusiasm. Today he just randomly asked if I wanted to practice this type of speech outside of class. I really do need practice on impromptu speaking so I said yes. And then he brought it up again and so we scheduled something for tomorrow afternoon. We talk about movies a lot and somehow our talk of movies became a "let's watch movies every week" so I hope he doesn't think that I like him or could like him? I'm probably overanalyzing everything but. . .  I don't want a great friendship to end based on misunderstandings. A different friend did like him and she said that he wasn't in search of a relationship so hopefully we're on the same page. :) I guess it's odd for me to have a guy friend and I sort of automatically think that if they try to spend time, it's definitely because they like me. If I had had more guy friends growing up, maybe it wouldn't be such a big deal... ah whatever. We'll hopefully never burn that bridge.

Maybe if I wasn't so completely alone on Valentine's Day, I'd feel differently about this holiday. I've eaten a ton of junk food today. . . I've had cupcakes, chocolate, ice cream, and even macaroons. It's a great day to indulge, if nothing more.


  1. Glad to know I wasn't the only one who had a great day all on her own :) I wish I'd had ice cream, but there was only hot chocolate, so...
    I spent my evening alone, watching Harry Potter in my room.

    I guess that it doesn't really matter if you've had a lot of guy friends. When it comes to that I am your direct opposite; I've always had lots of guy friends. I'm used to guys talking and hanging out with me, but because I'm used to it I always believe that they just want to be friends, even if they want to be more than that.

  2. Hahah! Yeah, I definitely had a great Singles Awareness Day. Harry Potter is awesome!

    Yeah, I wish I had more guy friends but maybe there's a reason that I don't. I don't know how to deal with this so I'll probably ignore it until I need to do something. Probably not a good tactic....

  3. Well both of you guys had more fun on that day than I did...I did homework all day and then went to the doctor's office to help one of my much for fun...I think having ice cream on the side would have made my day!

    S.S sounds like a great guy! But of course if you don't want to get into a relationship then don't. I think that just being friends is great! :)

    P.S I love the title of your post!

  4. The song was cute!
    Kinda encapsulated your post I think...maybe a leetle bit.:)
    I went to a convent all-girls school so I know the feeling...Just remember the have feelings too.However macho they might try to be.That's what I would tell my younger-self!
    And yeah indulge,what better way to have fun on Valentine's Day?!:)

  5. Thanks Elizabeth!!! Awwh going to the doctor's is never fun. Ice cream always makes me feel better... :)
    S is a great guy but things would be a lot more complicated if he didn't think we were just friends.

    Talitha: I love this song too! I don't think I could ever be a matchmaker though... Wow! An all girls school? I hate mixed signals. I just hope I'm on the same page as S.
    There really is no better way :) hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

  6. I agree that there shouldn't just be one day dedicated to love. Every day should be full of love! :) And I have a friend exactly like yours, hehe, whom I kinda have a crush on. Except we are both really hyper and crazy hehe. Don't worry about spending the day alone, I did too! I thought it was fun. :)

  7. Yeah, I don't understand why there needs to be a special day dedicated to love and being sweet. Haha, yeah actually it wasn't that bad! We talked a lot about random stuff and it felt like we were pretty much on exactly the same page.
