>No one to spend valentines day with this year? Me neither. For the first time in a GOSH long amount of years, I’m spending the 14th in my bed drinking hot chocolate.. ALONE. Valentines day was always my favorite of holidays, I have various [4 pairs] of limited edition valentines day sneakers, t-shirts for when I’m single [I love Men̶, He’s Mine etc etc etc].
So, although I may have a last minute stroke of luck and find a prince charming in time for V-Day, I honestly doubt it. But such is life, I (as many of you also should) am focusing on my studies and approaching this upcoming Monday with that very goal; stay focused on ME.
Going out to eat on V-Day is not quite fun alone, considering the restaurants are mobbed with mushy couples, and honestly what bitter bachelor[ette] wants that? I know I don’t.
I’m kind of thinking it’ll be a lax day for me, so why not keep it easy?
So, chicken cutlets, garlic mashed potatoes, and creamed corn. =]
