As you may have gathered from my last post I have been watching quite a bit of Once Upon a Time lately. Today I was watching the latest episode of Season 3 when something Rumpelstiltskin said really hit hard to me, not just for myself but for a lot of people I know.
“We had a chance to be happy, but I was afraid.”
Glad to see that you have all (I hope) survived another Valentine’s day, whether you spent it alone, with friends and family or with your special someone. Well me, I spent Valentines day as a single lady (18th year running) by myself but also, thank god, with a friend. And to be completely honest it was just like any other day to me. I never really have felt the need for the big fuss that is Valentines day purely because for the past 18 years I haven’t had anyone to make it special. But that isn’t what this post is about.
I guess in a way you could say that this year (now that I am 18) I almost hid from V-day because a lot of my friends seem to be in relationships now, which is completely fine. (What I don’t get is those 12-year-old kids who think they are dating but hey, that’s cool too just totally wasn’t my thing.) So this year this was the line-up for my Valentines day.
– Breakfast was completely normal. I ate alone because I woke up after all my family was at school.
– At 9.50am I biked to my lovely friend Sasha’s house where we spent the remainder of the morning trying to figure out our university timetables so that we would be in at least 1 lecture together for our Psychology class, which makes uni seem a little less daunting. Also in this time I was sending cute valentines day messages to my friends like this one:
