So here we are again...the day of gifts and love letters, dinner dates and overpriced flowers. The day of love.
I never got why singles made such a big deal over valentines. Or the couples, for that matter. Singles are "alone" every single day of the year anyway, so the entire fuss is really quite redundant and completely unnecessary. And for the couples, well, i get it. Having a special day is fun... but i'd really rather every day be like valentines instead of blowing up a singular event like that. It can get rather pretentious...and besides, consistency is key! Of course, that's just my personal preference (if i was attached in the first place) so i suppose you just wasted a good three minutes or so of your life reading all that for essentially nothing. Heh #sorrynotsorry
Valentines day this year was surprisingly good. Didn't do anything special but i worked on re-painting my room. Going for a cleaner look since previously it looked like it belonged to a nine year old. But i'm telling you, i've never appreciated painting services so much before. Attempting to paint my room (well actually just one wall) was craaaazy. YOUR. ARMS. WILL. LEGIT. BREAK. I can barely feel my arms now ): Will probably upload room pics when i'm done decorating the wall!
I was walking along Orchard Road earlier after getting some stuff and it was really kind of weird when i saw all the couples with their balloons and flowers because it actually felt...nice. Very nice. Surprisingly nice. Their bright smiles gave off this warm glow and i realized i've never seen so many Singaporeans looking so happy before. Everyone everywhere was smiling (a significant contrast from the usual stoned/stressed faces i'm accustomed to) and it just felt really amazing (': Maybe one day that'd be me, smiling shyly as i breathe in the sweet scent of a bouquet. Today though, i love myself. (Spent far more than necessary and my purse is feeling the burn. Oops). Single or attached, just be happy guys...you deserve to be (:
Happy Valentines. xoxo
