Valentine’s Day

Happy Wednesday everyone! Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is seen as a bogus holiday, but in reality, the only thing bogus about it is the attitude everyone has regarding the day. Single people act like it is horrible because they have no valentine and they will be forever alone, living with 27 cats, knitting sweaters out of their feline companions’ fur.  People in relationships either act like they are so in love they can’t even think about anything other than their honey that they will surely marry some day, or they are just as annoyed as single people and don’t want to pay for a gift and expensive dinner. No matter which end of the spectrum you are on, you probably have a wonky attitude about Valentine’s. Here are some helpful hints to make Valentine’s Day more ordinary, which will make it more special.

1. Remember it is just another day. You experience Thursday once every week; tomorrow is just another Thursday. The only difference is that people will wear red and pink and probably hug each other a lot.  No big deal.

2. Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your friends. Write corny love letters for your friends and give them chocolates. Yesterday, my roommate (and valentine) Ashni and I ate a whole container of chocolate covered pretzels, and by golly it was a great time! Embrace the Valentine’s Day traditions, but share them with a larger group of people, exponentially increasing the love (and candy).

3. Tell people you love them all the time. If you do this, Valentine’s Day won’t even seem like anything but another day, which it is. Hug strangers. Tell attractive bystanders pick up lines. Make like a peanut butter and jelly and spread the love! Do so on a regular basis, and Valentine’s Day will be less of a big deal. Plus, you might make some new friends along the way, or people will think you are crazy. Either way, you are building new relationships and carrying on the spirit of #BoldMoveJanuary.

Have a fabulous rest of the week, and a normal Thursday. Thanks for reading :)

Early Trick-Or-Treating

Happy weekend to all! Yesterday Schwitzer Hall had a trick or treat event for some kids to come through the building in their costumes and do some early trick-or-treating. Each of the units decorated the halls in an attempt to win the award for best decorated unit. My unit decorated our hallway in accordance with the Pixar movie Up. We put balloons everywhere and my roommate and I made the house from the movie out of paper and stuck it on the wall. Some of the other units were decorated like Harry Potter or Monsters Inc. We still don’t know who won, but we will find out very soon.

Yesterday evening the children came through. Three of my friends and I dressed up as Goldie-locks and the three bears (I was Papa Bear) and handed out candy to some adorable children! Not as many kids came by as we had anticipated, so I was forced to eat the extra candy. I wasn’t happy about it, but somebody had to do it! As I have said before, Halloween is probably my least favorite holiday because I eat ridiculous amounts of candy on a regular basis, and if I want to dress up like a crazy person I can do that any day of the week, but it was fun seeing all of the cute little kids come by.

Goldie-Locks and the Three Bears

Since I forgot a joke in last Friday’s post, here’s two for this week:

Who did the ghost take to the dance? His ghoul friend!

Why didn’t the skeleton go to the party? He had no body to dance with!

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading :)
