Valentine’s Day brings on a lot of emotions to people; from anxiety to loneliness. Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, though it’s mostly taken over by couples. I’ve only ever experienced Valentine’s day with my friends, never with a significant other. But what does Valentine’s Day really mean? One of my friends on Facebook made a great  remark about this day of love. She stated “shouldn’t every day be a celebration with your love ones” and she is absolutely right.


As today loomed closer, I wondered the same thing. Even if I can’t celebrate February 14th with him, isn’t every time we hang out or go on a date the same thing? What sets this day apart from any other? For my Valentine’s Day, I hope to spend it with my Prince Charming, but if I can’t, then that will be okay. Every day I get to spend time with him are moments I love. I’ve probably told him countless times how much I love him and written him notes as well. So even if you do not have someone to spend Valentine’s day with, it’s okay. Because you can spend it with the friends who love you for you. Happy Valentine’s Day, and may you fill it with the ones who love you the most.

P.S. Frankie! Will you be my Valentine <3 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hola, mi llamo Marissa Hernandez. Hey, I'm Marissa Hernandez, and I am a senior studying Psychology at Pepperdine University. I am involved and an active member of Alpha Kappa Psi, Business Fraternity and I am currently working on campus through the theater department. I am very passionate about art and working with children. I hope to one day open my own center that is primarily focused on children and teens, through the involvement of art, sports, cooking, and other fun activities. I personally believe that community and communication with their peers who have similar interest, is the most effective way of therapy. Besides my personal interest in the future, in my free time I love to socialize with my friends, paint, eat food, and cook. I have a habit of having dinner parties every weekend about 10-15 of our closest friends, in which I cook large feast of Mexican food or other types of foods. I have an addiction to Sawtelle, in which you might catch my in the wee hours of the night getting Tatsu or wintermelon boba. I am pretty easy to find on campus, since I never go a day without wearing a single flower or a lot of flowers in my hair.
