ruffles, eyelets, hearts, lace…this is what i wore yesterday to celebrate the frivolity of valentine’s day. well, at least during part of the day. my night was spent spreading drywall mud on ceilings. how romantic! i really don’t care though, because i can’t wait to have my house finished.
valentine’s day has always typically sucked for me. not because i was alone, but because every boyfriend i’ve ever had was immensely obtuse in the ways of romanticism..or appreciation of any kind, in general (i know…males! bah!). i find it much more enjoyable if i consider valentine’s day as a day dedicated to loving & appreciating yourself…which you should do every day anyway! if you are happily in love, then by all means, celebrate that every day, too! but don’t feel grieved or shorted or unworthy if you are not. if you don’t love yourself, then how can anyone else? besides, i feel that it is much better to be alone than to be with someone who doesn’t truly love and appreciate you.
that is, unless you’re the needy, clingy, psycho, borderline type…in which case, you’re lucky if anyone puts up with your bullshit. :p
