    For Some

    One Day To Love

    Isn't it ironic that people only use this "man-made holiday" to tell people they love them? I dislike the concept of "one day to tell people you love them", because you must be able to tell people you love them all the time, not just when this "one day" comes on the calendar map...

    My Least Favorite Day of the Year

    As the dreaded day draws closer I can already see the signs of the worst day of the year. Jewlery stores are advertising a hell of a lot more, flowershops are stocking up, corny cupids and pink hearts decorate the window of every store. Valentine's Day is like a day for couples...

    Even Though I Was Born the Day Befor

    I hate v-day! Even if I did love someone, unlikely, why do you need that one day to show that you love them. I mean shouldn't it be every day? I don't feel like typing much so thats all.

    I've never been with someone on Valentine's. It's always a lonely day that way. My dad always gives me nice presents and candy so it's not all bad.
