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?

It's National Coming Out Day, So I'm Doing Just That

"I'm coming out. I want the world to know." -Diana Ross

Odyssey has given me the ability to express myself and open up about viewpoints that I rarely discuss. Writing about controversial topics is always scary because you're putting yourself in a vulnerable position by opening up to the world.

This article is possibly the most vulnerable I will ever get during my time with Odyssey.

This article is not a viewpoint, it is a coming out.

My senior year of high school I was faced with a very tough question: Who am I?

I was confused about everything in the world, myself included. It took time, but I figured it out. It's taken another four and a half years to talk about it.

So here it is: I'm bisexual.

So often do we see "straight" as the default for sexuality. This "default" made it even harder to admit my own sexuality to myself.

I spent months trying to figure out who I was and still have days where I question myself. I've spent so long keeping a large part of myself a secret that I've started to doubt myself and I no longer want to do that.

I want to be proud of who I am.

I want to stand up for other people and speak out about issues that affect me and others like me and not be afraid. I want to be a part of my community and not be afraid of being questioned.

I'm no longer afraid to be who I am.

For the past four years, I have watched this day come and go, each year saying, "This is the year," and chickening out last second. I'm not going to chicken out any longer. This is the year I tell everyone who I am.

I'm terrified of admitting this to the world, but I hope that it will only free me.

Bisexuality comes with its own myths and question for other people, though, and I want to address some things before I leave everyone with this new information about myself.

Dating a guy does not make me straight and dating a woman does not make me lesbian. Bisexuality is its own sexuality and should be seen as such.

I am not more likely to cheat because of my sexuality. Being bi does not make me unfaithful or promiscuous.

My history—with men or women—is none of your business. Period.

It's not a phase or "experimenting," it's who I am. Please see the previous point if you have questions about that.

My sexuality is not fake. It is real. I and countless others exist. This article is here to tell you I exist.

I'm bisexual and I'm coming out.
