Valentine’s Day

Posted in random by krisyee on February 5, 2010

I’m not sure how I feel about “Love Day” aka Valentine’s Day. I only have three memorable Valentine’s Days. The first one was when I was a sophomore in high school. I was at work when my friend showed up with a card that he drew himself, along with a poem and rose. The second was when I was a senior and another friend from a different high school showed up to my track practice with a dozen roses, chocolate, a cd mix, and a teddy bear (the sweetest ever!). And the last one I remember was when the Jordan XII’s got rereleased and my exbf gave me a card that said “Happy Valentine’s Day!” except the word “Valentine’s Day” was crossed out and substituted with “Jordan Day”.

I’m kind of torn about this “holiday”. Sure I’d love to spend it with someone that I like but I wouldn’t want to spend it with someone just because they asked me. Instead, I’d rather be in the presence of other friends that are single or even friends and family that I love. I was lucky enough to be with close friends last year and attended Pillow Fight in San Francisco. This year I’m most likely going to be with family, celebrating Chinese New Year. After New Years dinner, find me at the movies watching Valentine’s Day w/ a bag of popcorn and a white cherry icee.

I like the fact of celebrating love with the people in your life that you love (even though you should technically be showing that everyday), but sometimes you just wish you had someone to share it with.

I don’t hate Valentine’s Day. But I don’t love it either.
