My mom made these today.
So it’s Valentine’s Day again. I don’t really see the point of this day, but then again I’m kind of cynical. I understand that it is the feast day of St. Valentine…but I don’t think it needs to be so commercial. You shouldn’t have to wait for that one special day to tell that special someone how much you care. They should already know because you should have already told them…frequently.
I’m not bitter about it, nor am I upset by the day, I just don’t see the point nor the pressure put on people to get flowers or chocolates or whatever. It’s funny, actually, because my sister said to me that she wonders what her boyfriend will do for her today. Why does he have to do something for you? What are you going to do for him?
Much the same as my girlfriend asked if we were buying each other presents. My first thought: what, you didn’t get enough at Christmas? My second thought: I can barely make my car payment, how am I supposed to afford to buy presents? My third thought: man, Valentine’s Day is so stupid.
That’s just kind of how I feel. Besides, I don’t have time for dinner or dates because I have an essay due tomorrow. Hell, I barely have time for this post – but it is nice to get five minutes away from essay writing.
My girlfriend was actually rather upset about this because she told me that Valentine’s Day means a lot to her and that we should spend it together. I don’t really believe in that. Besides, my essay due tomorrow takes priority, and will always take priority. Sorry.
Am I being too harsh and cynical?
Probably…but I really don’t care. This is me. I don’t think I need to spend this particular night with my girlfriend – and she should realize it’s because of school. We can make up for it on the weekend. Besides, if I didn’t care about her, I wouldn’t be dating her.
This all makes sense to me, so I don’t understand why it doesn’t for her.
Then again, what do I know, right? 😉
So, this is how I spent my Valentine’s Day:
