What I’m planning to do on Valentines is go out with some friends to have fun and then get something to eat at night. What I think most people do on Valentines day is spend time with their loved ones and/or do something fun/ romantic. I think that Valentines to me is both a bad and good holiday because some people just don’t have that special connection with someone to celebrate it with and its a good holiday because it gives those who have a loved one a reason to be with that someone in that specific day. Valentines day has impacted me because it has shown me that i don’t really need a loved one to spend it with for the reasons that I’m an independent person and this doesn’t really affect how I feel on that day. I do not have a Valentines date and I wouldn’t really want one because like I said I’m more of an independent person and I don’t need anyone to be happy on Valentines Day. What Valentines means to me is a special day to celebrate with your valentines date/loved one because this day you get to celebrate the amount of time you’ve had each other and how much you have supported one another. -Kelly Cid
