I have mixed feelings about Valentine's Day.
I think the idea behind the day is great. Celebrating your love for each other? That's just sweet. For people who celebrate it, it's usually wonderful. Happy times, lots of love, all that sort of sappy stuff. I saw a bunch of old couples celebrating together today and they were just so in love that it was impossible not to see, and caused me to have very girly "ohmygosh they are the cutest thing I have ever seen" moments.
However, I don't think that you should celebrate it because you "have" to. I don't think that you should shower your Valentine in presents and stuff just because it's Valentine's Day. You should want to do that everyday. Not even just giving the presents, but telling or showing the person that you love them. It doesn't mean a thing if you only do it because you're told to or because you "have" to. It all comes down to if you're celebrating because you want to.
To clarify, I'm not saying that I'm not celebrating this year or that I won't celebrate. Valentine's Presents will be exchanged, but it won't be until April. That's when Wolfy and I will be together. It's not the day that matters and anyone who is all disappointed that they don't have a Valentine should kind of just get over it. Would you rather have a Valentine for one day or somebody who loves you and lets you know that every day?
Ohmygosh I think I said something wise and sweet at the same time. I don't even know.
Here, look at the thingy that Wolfy "shared" on Facebook.
|Basically everything I just said in less words.|
I'll have another story about work for you soon. Maybe two stories. Depends on if I decide its blog material or not. That means real posts! Not random pictures with me whining about things! Yay!
And on a random side note, I've decided to actually do something for Lent this year. Lent is basically to give up luxuries in your life for a 40 day time period. Instead, I've decided to give up cursing. I figure giving up something I probably shouldn't do would be a good thing to do until I'm out of bad habits and then I can work on something else.
Feel free to yell at me if you see me slipping up and cursing. I've already had a dream that I gave it up and dropped F-bombs all over the place without meaning to. Hopefully that doesn't happen.
P.S. Be warned, there is a sappy moment to end this post.
I do love you Wolfy. I can't wait to see you and I hope you had a good Valentine's Day even though today wasn't very Valentines-y since you're a bunch of states away.
