Why is this February already? Seriously, time flies so fast. Valentine's Day is approaching very soon and I have some stories and happenings for heart's day to share in the following days. Here in the Philippines, Valentine's Day is a serious holiday. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've cringed over the fact that I never receive flowers every 14th. I can only remember forcing an ex boyfriend to give me one so many years ago, and I think that was the last time I have ever received any.
But growing up, I realized that it is not really that important. You should not really have to join the hype, especially when you have your friends and family with you. Some years back, our male officemates surprised us girls with a heart's day breakfast. Life was even simpler back in high school, when all we think about this day is just hanging around and listening to mix tapes. I remember practicing to play guitars just like the blueridge guitars at wwbw.com. Everything was simpler. And I think, what's sweetest than flowers are heartfelt surprises from the people around you. After all, all we need is love, right?
This Valentine's Day, what are your plans? I want to know so I could also get some ideas on how to make my friends who are also single, also enjoy that special day. Happy Love Month everyone!
