How to survive Valentine’s

By Maria Divina Canalita, Staff Writer

To all the single people out there: I’m with you. I’m here to help on the day we all have been so awkward about. Not having that significant other on Valentine’s Day, loads of tissue boxes while watching A Walk to Remember, you are not alone.

But that doesn’t mean you’re not going to survive. You can still have a blast. Whether you’re flying solo or with your cat, these 7 tips can guide you this Valentine’s Day!

  1. Hang out with your single friends. Reconnecting with your “single” friends is a good way to celebrate Valentines. Spend time with your girlfriends at the movies. Make sure to avoid chick flicks!
  2. Hang out with your cat. Or maybe dog. Pets are so comfortable to be with. You don’t feel judged at all. According to USA Today, pets improves our morale and encourage us to take care of ourselves. Their compassion and loyalty to us is one of a kind. So why not spend time with them? Go out on a hike with your dog. Teach your cat some new skills.
  3. Pamper yourself. Indulge yourself in facial spas, do yoga, cheat day! Relax and relieve out the stress. Trust me, you need it. This Valentines day, you want to go all out. The key to Valentine’s Day is to be happy. So spend the day to relax!
  4. Go on a date. Maybe or maybe not. Try to swipe right and maybe it’s a perfect match! Just be sure to be careful of people you see online.
  5. Netflix and Munch.  Recommend.
  6. Spend time with your family. Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to be with someone you love or like. It can also be a time of spending the day with your family. Be with your mom or dad for a day. Call it a “date” and be with the most significant people who had been with you since day one
  7. Do homework in advance, I guess. If you’re a student like me who likes to cram last minute, then this is the right thing to do. Open your Biology book once! Maybe, actually, you can score an A on that district assessment!
