I Spent Valentine’s Day “Alone”

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at PS Berks chapter.

I have been single for all Valentine’s Day’s except one, and this year was no exception. I dread Valentine’s Day. I love being single but the grass always looks greener on the other side. Here are some things I did:


  1. Made myself a Valentine.

                                                                                                      Author’s Valentine

I helped to staff a Valentine making event. I saw glitter and naturally needed to make a card and use some, but I didn’t have anyone to give it to. It was recommended that I make one for myself, so that’s what I did. It made making the card a lot more enjoyable. I didn’t have to worry about someone liking the card or about messing up. I used all the glitter I could fit on the card and owned it. I love things that sparkle, and the card was for me, so glitter was highly necessary.


    2. Ate chocolate

This was a given. I love chocolate. I had been eating some the week before so I continued to eat. I never need an excuse to eat chocolate but it seemed like the perfect occasion. I also didn’t have to worry about getting candy that I didn’t like. I had a little box of chocolate without a paper that said which was which, and I ate it freely knowing I was allowed to not like the piece that I was eating. No one was going to call me picky or get offended that I didn’t like their present.


      3. Went to the gym

I wasn’t sure about going to the gym. I thought that I should consider taking a nap or working on homework instead, but the gym won out. I wore one of my favorite tops (which is NOT pink or red) and did what I needed to do. I enjoyed the gym a little more than usual because it was an activity I was doing for me.
