This all of course boils into everyone's favorite span of the year. The Christmas time holiday which bleeds into the new years holiday, which bleeds into Valentines day. Christmas I hate because I have no money to get things for people I care about. (Which in all reality isn't so bad, since I'm not entirely behind the belief that love should be demonstrated with material gifts) New years is always a drag because everyone is always out of town/invited to a part I am not/I am out of town and with no one I want to hang with. School gets underway again in January and then WHAM... everyone is in a furvor over Valentines day. What a great day THAT is. A day of the year when we can all rejoice in the grand display of EVERYONE in town revelling in the joy of man/woman companionship. In my face all day... couples being extra lovey dovey... almost as if they're rubbing that in your face. "You could have a partner too, but you still couldn't do this in public here and be immune to extra scrutiny!" This could be corrected had I wanted to live down in the West end... but I couldn't stand that either.
I know I'm not alone on this stuff... we need to come up with a holiday for us rejects that can be enjoyed by us!
