Hello! I had a pretty great day today! I got started on some of my packing, and got most of my outfits out of the way. I’m SO, SO, SO, SO EXCITED!! As of tomorrow, there’s one more week until we take off! I can’t wait to have more than a week straight of time to myself and my thoughts! It’s so hard to come by real free time these days, time free of stressful thoughts and the urge to keep going and going. It’ll be nice to truly relax, after so long.
So, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! My first Valentine’s Day being single after 6 years. Wow. In all honesty, it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s another day of the year. And really, it’s more so a commercialized day than a day of real sentiment. As cliché as this may be, every day in a relationship should feel like Valentine’s Day. Or at least, most days. So no, I won’t be missing anything or anyone tomorrow, because to me, tomorrow’s just Tuesday, and I have work.
Don’t get me wrong though – I love my holidays. I love themes, and I love the idea of it. But, I’m not buying into the whole “if you’re single on Valentine’s Day, you must be miserable” gimmick, because I know better than that. I’m not miserable – I’m actually happier than I’ve been in a really long time! I’m not letting a day like Valentine’s Day take that away from me! That would be silly.
Plus, I should have plenty of distraction – Dylan texted me today to ask me if I was working tomorrow, because he’s in tomorrow and wanted to wish me a safe trip. (CUTE). We ended up talking a little bit about books and stuff; he’s bringing me his copy of The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho, so I can read it while I’m in Hawaii. Have I mentioned that I love that he reads? It’s such a turn on, jeez.
I need to be much more chill when it comes to this. And in all honesty, I don’t want to play games or whatever – that’s never been who I am. I like straight forward simplicity, texting with no ulterior motives or intentions, etc. I just got to be myself, because that’s MORE than good enough! I’m not trying to impress anyone. So that’s that!
Anyways! I’ll write after my shift tomorrow! Until then! Wish me luck with… things… LOL.
