scream at the top of your lungs..

ok this is just one of those things where i should have been given a manual about life because as usual, i am unable to wrap my mind around it.

there is a valentine's day where one is expected to plan and spend as lavishly as possible on their significant other. it's a day specifically targeted by marketing execs to celebrate love.

and that's entirely fine by me. some people say it's all gimicky and that you should celebrate love every other day too. but sometimes things just need to be special or else it's just plain boring. at least men (i'm sorry but they're the gender that tends to be a little thick) are forced by this reason to be creative.

on the other hand, if you don't have a significant other then what exactly are you supposed to do?
contemplating cutting your wrists in a deep, dark dank corner of a room does not seem like a pratical solution to things. *it's the second day with the highest rate of suicide supposedly.

i resent the fact that there is no such thing as a singles day. why is there no special day allocated to singles to celebrate their fabulosity?
is it not important to love yourself first before being able to love that significant other?

i walked into that flower shop just downstairs. the roses looked fabulous and for 5 mins i contemplated getting them for myself. it's a treat to myself to tell ME : "hello there.. you're special too you know!"

flowers and girls night out is, as always, therapuetic for the soul.


ps: there will be a charity benefit for the bushfire victims on this site by project_SLY. please watch out because it's going to be limited in numbers..

those who wish to give personally please go to the RedCross *click* website.
