If You're Sad About Being Single This Valentine's Day, Cut That Shit Out And Celebrate Thirsty Thursday Instead

Valentine's Day—a holiday about love, sex, relationships, and candy. It is THE most romantic day of the year, but it is the day that the single people dread the most.

You cannot go out on the 14th without seeing a couple within a three-mile radius. You can't go to a restaurant without seeing a cute couple looking deep into each other's eyes, you can't go to the movies because you will be the only person sitting alone, and you can't go to the stores because you will only see the giant teddy bears that you are not going to be receiving from that someone special.

The holiday is sad, it really is. I spent Valentine's Day with the same guy for three years and when that ended... well my parents felt so bad they purchased me a gift. I was alone, heartbroken and went from receiving flowers to receiving NOTHING.

But, for the people who are alone this Valentine's Day... have no fear because it's going to be a good year.

The 14th of February falls on a Thursday.

Yeah, a Thursday—big whoop, right?

No, a Thursday is a big deal because of a Thursday at the bars = Thirsty Thursday.

What is Thirsty Thursday? You see, us college kids tend to go out during the week and blackout, have sex and spend more money than we should on beverages that only make us regret the night before. Everyone is out on Thursdays, even our professors.

Why would you choose to pout over being alone, watch hopeless romantic movies on the couch with friends or drink wine in the bathtub when you could go out on Thirsty Thursday? I guarantee the bars will be the ONE place that will not have that many couples out rubbing all over each other & constantly reminding you that you are alone.

The bars are where you are going to have those titties out, cheeks clapping and dry humping for the entire night.

Think about it. If you are a girl, imagine going out in the HOTTEST outfit you own and walking into a banging bar. I bet those single guys are not going to be going home alone.

Guys, imagine leaving your douchebag attitude on your couch, along with Fortnite, and snagging some ladies.

The pros of being alone on this day, this ONE day, is you are not tied down. Sure, you can thot plot all year—but this is a day when both genders are out to play—and not with themselves (ya feel)?

Stop spending this day sad, depressed and lonely and take advantage of Thirsty Thursday! We all have been single, and many of us are going to remain that way if we don't fix our act (@ me), but don't let this day have you defeated. Go out with your hottest crew and get laid not once, but twice, make out with a stranger, tell a stranger you love them, max out your cards because you cannot control your liquor intake. WHY? Because you are able to do whatever the hell you want.

Happy Valentine's Day...

Oh wait,

Happy Thirsty Thursday!

Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially in cuffing season. These are some of the observations I made as my roommate got a boyfriend.

1.You become a third wheeler

Their plans are your plans.

2. You are the couple’s personal photographer

"Can you take our picture?" is one of your new nicknames.

3. You play the game, “Who has seen my roommate?”

Sometimes you go days without seeing either of them.

4. You learn when to stay a few paces back and let them have their own space

This skill might take some time to develop.

5. You learn how cringey your roommate can be when it comes to her boyfriend

You love her but also LOL.

6. You get to hear all the details (because accountability is important!!)

Living vicariously is all that you have most nights.

7. You give them your full support, unless she get hurts (then, boy bye)

At the end of the day, as long as she's happy, you're happy.

If your roommate gets a boyfriend, learn what it takes to be a good third wheeler, and get a phone with good camera quality. Good luck to all the roommates who have roommates with boyfriends!

10 Things Every College Girl Can, And Should, Do Instead Of Sending A Text That Probably Will Ruin Her Life

Read this before pressing send.

We're all human. We bleed red and we cry water.

We have emotions—violent, vivid, and sometimes uncontrollable. It's natural to feel, it's healthy to feel but sometimes we feel ugly and unpleasant emotions. We may not always be able to control our emotions, whether it's anger, sadness, or longing, but we can control our actions.

So instead of compulsively hitting the send button to a text that may very well lead to instant regret; let's take a step back from the phone and busy yourself with something else for a while.

1. Journal

This allows you to sort through you're feelings and thoughts in a designated safe place. No one has to read it so it's safe to write down your raw thoughts without concern for anyone else's judgment. This gives you an opportunity to process your intentions and possible consequences. You could journal on a physical piece of paper or digitally.

2. Take a nap

Nothing resets the mind and body like a good satisfying nap.

3. Tend to a pet

Our pets are always ready to give us unconditional love. They can soothe our woes if we allow them, so pet your furry pal, hold your reptile amigo, or watch your finny friend. Play with them, love them, and take care of them. Engaging with your animal friends will direct your attention to someone who needs you. You can even rant to them, they'll listen to what you have to say.

4. Play a video game

Engage in any world you'll like from petting "Nintendo Dogs" to shooting in "Call of Duty." Video games offer an outlet for us when we're in a rut, allowing us to escape into a world of virtually no consequence.

5. Create art 

Art is an abstract expression of the soul. Instead of verbalizing over a text, use your emotions as fuel in creating a masterpiece. Be messy with paint or charcoal, or perhaps more refined with pencil or digital art. Art is various and ultimately limitless; its a judgment-free zone where you can authentically be you and express your internal world.

6. Cook

Cooking is both practical and fun. You diligently work in preparing the dish and at the end of your hard work you have something yummy to eat. The effort you put into the meal is rewarding as you devour it. Plus nothing beats eating to distract you from your feelings.

7. Exercise

Exercise can mean taking a walk around the neighborhood, yoga, the gym, or playing on a playground. Something physical can help burn off excess energy you may harbor and may help level you out. Exercise gives your body and mind some love and may help clear your head.

8. Listen to music

Music offers us solace when we need it. It gives us comfort by helping us verbalize our emotions and express them in an art form. There's a song for every mood and mindset, so there's always something to listen to.

9. Read a book

Escape into another world through the pages of a book. Sometimes engaging in someone else's problems in their own plotline is what we need to become distracted from our own.

10.  Write an article

Take your stance or problem, and use it as fuel to create something worthwhile. Make something productive out of it, such as writing an article on Odyssey.

When I started writing this article I was fuming mad but as I wrote I gradually calmed down (See #1). I was about to text something nasty out of anger but I stopped myself. I didn't want to hurt someone I sincerely cared about. Sometimes we need a little time away from our phones to process our intentions and the consequences. In the age of instant gratification taking a step back may prove difficult but sometimes it's what we need. Hopefully, you can get to a place where you can text something you won't regret as I have.
