Ok. So I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what to do for Valentines Day. Should I list down my favorite OTPs…maybe some romance books, desserts or even listing books with red covers. You know..lovey stuff. But none of it felt appropriate for me. They all just felt..fake. Invalid. Na’ah.
This is why.
For starters, I just want to clarify that I’m not the kind of gal who goes screaming “Eff er..Valintines Day..” drunk in a bar surrounded by other equally screwed up people.
Cause A. I don’t drink and B. I don’t leave the house..so..
No, my issue is this. Deep breathes.
I’ve never celebrated Valentines Day.
And now you know.
I’mma let that sink in.
Here’s the deal.
I’ve never had a boyfriend or been in a relationship before. I’m also not a romantic person nor am I someone who collects a group of friends and goes bar hopping every year. I just..well..I exist. I don’t really acknowledge it even happens. And not in a “I’m depressed so cancel this day” way. No, its just not important to me, so it’s like blah.
Valentine’s day to me is like every other day except that for some reason everyone is in red or pink. It holds no meaning or importance to me whatsoever.
And I know, a lot of you would be like…
what’s wrong with you…
Honestly, I don’t know. And wow I’m being judged so hard right now.
The point is this, there is no point. I’m just someone who doesn’t ‘do’ this thing that the ‘humans’ do. I don’t look up Valentine’s posts, cards or outfits. Maybe its because I don’t have a life!! Who knows?!
Anyway, that’s all I have for you today.
Until Next Time!
For The Love Of Reading!
