13 Ways To Celebrate Anti-Valentine's Day This February

13 Ways To Celebrate Anti-Valentine's Day This February

I'm more of a fan of curling up by myself and using the day as an excuse for some self-care.

Valentine's Day--one of, if not the, most overrated "holiday" out there. Personally, I'm not a fan of the whole "spend lots of money on this one random day a year just because society says we need to."

I'm more of a fan of curling up by myself and using the day as an excuse for some self-care. Here are 13 ways to celebrate anti-Valentine's Day.

1. Netflix binge-fest

Admit it, there are so many days we'd rather binge watch our favorite show than get up and be an adult. Take advantage of your anti-Valentine's Day celebration and take some time to catch up on your favorite show.

2. Chinese take-out

I mean, do we really need an excuse to eat Chinese food? No. But will we use this day as an excuse to eat Chinese food? Yes.

3. Spending time with your pet

I can't help it if I like my dog more than most (all) people.

4. Taking a night off from schoolwork

Being a college student comes with a lot of studying. Take advantage of the day, and take some time off from the books.

5. Reading a good book

OK, so maybe you can't make yourself stop reading because you do it so much, so instead, curl up with that novel you've been dying to read but has been collecting dust on your side table.

6. Taking a nap

Naps are hard to come by, and when you actually have the time to take one, take advantage of it.

7. Shopping trip for yourself

Are those shoes calling your name? Go get them!

8. Sleeping-in

Maybe you don't have time for a nap, that's OK--just sleep in late instead.

9. A "date" with your BFF

Who needs a romantic date when you have a best friend?

10. Reading Odyssey articles

Was this not obvious?

11. Job hunting

Spend your anti-V-Day productively and apply for that job you've been eyeing for weeks!

12. Eating candy you bought for yourself

Who says you need a boyfriend to eat candy?

13. Smiling because you don't have to waste money you don't have on someone else

I mean, does it get better than that?

10 Signs The Guy You're Texting During Sylly Week Will Be Your Boyfriend By Finals Week

Trust me hunny, if he is actually interested, you can tell.


We've all had that guy in our message thread that we have a crush on but can't tell if he does too. It's a little nerve wrecking because us girls don't want to say to much and make him flee. It's a give and take kind of game that can be fun or stressful. When texting a guy, it's always a gamble.

Here are 10 signs that will tell you if he actually likes you:

1. He texts YOU first 

This is super, super telling. If he really likes you, he will want to initiate conversation. Plus, this means he is thinking about you.

2. He sends long, thought out messages 

Typically, guys aren't the biggest texters. They usually send short and to the point messages, but if he is sending you long and carefully constructed texts, you are heading in the right direction.

3. He texts you when he wakes up 

Everybody knows this is of extreme importance. There are so many things a guy thinks about when he first wakes up so if you receive that message it means you were one of the first things that came to his mind.

4. When you don't text back right away he asks what you were doing 

The longer you take, he either wont think anything of it or he will think nonstop why you're not responding. So, If he asks what you were doing you know he's interested.

5. He makes it a point to text throughout the day 

Guys typically hate texting and don't do it often. So if he texts you all day long you are important in his daily life.

6. Compliments, compliments, compliments 

Compliments tell it all! If he constantly is genuinely complimenting you he is 100% interested.

7. He is always asking you questions about yourself 

If he does this he wants to get to know you better, which is a very good sign.

8. He tries to make you laugh

Making a significant other laugh is normally incredibly important. So if he is always trying to make you laugh and it's successful, you are on the right track.

9. He lets you know what y'all would be doing if he was with you 

This means he is thinking and fantasizing about you and imagining what it would be like to be with you—the best sign you could receive.

10. He texts you when he is drunk 

Listen up girls, if he is texting you and he is blackout drunk then this is tell tale sign. Guys can rarely even remember their name when they are drunk let alone text. So, if this happens you are definitely on his mind.

There are always signs to let you know if a guy really likes you. Here are just a couple to give a little insider, but if he does these then girl you've got nothing to worry about. Go get him, girl.

10 Reactions You Have When Your Ex-Boyfriend Has A BABY, As Told By Michael Gary Scott

"Oh, my God! OK, it's happening!"


I don't know if I'm still too young or already old enough for my ex-lovers to start having children but either way, I'm freaking out.

Whether it's my ex or my friends, I am in utter shock because it's a reminder that I am not getting any younger. I'm stepping into a realm that I've never traverse before, and in all honesty, I don't think I'm ready.

There's nothing wrong about them having a child, settling down, and doing their thing but how the hell did time fly so fast? It's just that I can barely make my bed every day, let alone change a miniature human's diaper.

These were my reactions while stalking my ex on Instagram, as told by Michael Scott:

1. When you first hear the news 

2. "Wait how old were we?" 

3. "How old am I?" 

4. "No I'm not THAT old... am I?" 

5. "Can someone please tell me how and when did this happen?" 

6. "OMG, it's so small and chubbers" 

7. Two words—baby fever 

8. Then you remind yourself that you can't even take care of yourself 

9. Miss emotions about the whole ordeal 

10. You're actually really happy for them
