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?

6 Reasons You Should ALWAYS 'Fake-Type' Your Crush On Snapchat

It might work, it might not... but, it's always worth a shot!

Fake-Type — Verb. 1. Pushing random letters on Snapchat messages without ever sending anything just so your name will pop up on that person's phone.

When your crush doesn't wanna talk to you, you can always send a "fake type" message to give him the hint you want to talk. It might work, it might not... but, it's always worth a shot!

Here are 6 reasons you should at least TRY fake-typing your crush on Snapchat!

1. Leave him wondering

Once he sees that "_______ is typing...", he will be staring at his phone to see what it is you have to say. Does it just say hey? Does it ask to hang? Does it ask to bang? Is it you bitching him out? He'll wait a couple minutes and realize you never sent anything? He might send you the "what's up" text then mission will be accomplished.

2. To just see if he replies

Maybe he's just waiting on you to make the first move? Maybe this is just the push y'all needed to start a conversation? Maybe he was going to talk to you later in the day, but you just moved up the time? And if he doesn't reply, just act like it was an accident.

3. To make yourself feel like you have balls without actually saying anything

No girl really wants to Snapchat her crush first even though she really wants to talk to him. The least you can do is make your name pop up on his phone and feel like you actually did something. And, you actually did do something either way. You either got his attention or made him talk to you. You got balls, girl.

4. To make yourself feel a little less pathetic all while being totally pathetic

Yeah, it's kind of embarrassing when he hits you with that "Did you mean to do that?" But not so much when he says, "Hey, what are you up to?" It's kind of up in the air on which will happen, but you always can blame it on an accident. That's not too pathetic, is it?

5. To get your psycho girl fix

Sometimes you're just having a bad day and want to talk to your crush. When he is not talking to you, you just feel like being a psycho until he does. When the fake typing works, the psycho girl fix is gone, and you can act like a normal girl again.

6. Just to do it

If you really like this boy and have already snapped him first before, just go for the fake type. If you fake type a couple of times and he never replies, just take the hint and leave him alone. What really do you have to lose with a fake type?

I hope everyone fake types their crush at least once in their life just for the thrill of seeing what he will say or if he will ever say anything. Good luck, and I hope this inspires you to fake type that guy.

The 7 Traits That Define An Alpha Female

Throw her to the wolves and she'll return with the pack.

views

Women are weak.

Women are fragile.

Women are submissive.

Women are second.

Women are stereotyped.

We are frustratingly put second because that is just how it has always been. With this notion, the alpha woman stands out. She is unconventional and to many men, this scares them away. Her confidence oozes her alpha demeanor and instills levels of immense intimidation in the mindsets of many. With this unconventional mindset, alpha women are misunderstood in not only relationships but in daily life. By getting to know an alpha female's characteristics you will better be able to understand why dating an alpha-female may be the way to go.

Here are the characteristics of an alpha female:

1. She won't give up easily.

She is resilient. When an alpha female has a goal, it becomes a major focus that encompasses her mind. She sees herself as an investment. In this regard, she will tirelessly work to upkeep her social, physical, and emotional state of mind. She won't play victim to life and become thrashed by harsh-comings, but rather will take them head on.

2. She isn't afraid to make the first move.

This is where a lot of alpha and beta females may differ. Making the first move toward a guy at a bar is her specialty. Why should a boy be the one to always make the first move? So thankfully for you boys, alpha females can take that burden off you. This bold approach exemplifies her spontaneous, self-assured, confident, and outgoing nature. She knows what she wants and goes for it without hesitation.

3. She is extremely loyal.

She is loyal and respectful to the ones she loves. Once she has someone or something int heir life, they work hard to keep it around. She says what she wants and wants what she says. Letting people or things slip through her fingers is not a common occurrence. With an alpha female knowing what she wants, she won't jeopardize relationships or friendships over petty things. Not feeling the need to use dishonest tactics, she lives her life with integrity.

4. She lives with purpose.

She has direction in her life. While she knows how to relax and be adventurous, she does not just wander as a lost puppy in her life. Working toward goals of physical fitness, doing well in school, or attaining a good career are examples of purpose she works toward. She stays aware of her goals and keeps them in the center of her thoughts. Dating an alpha female, you can be ensured she will get what she will get things done and will work hard to ensure happiness in the relationship.

5. She isn't afraid to be or do things by herself.

The alpha female isn't afraid of independence, and in fact, often times will welcome it. Strong leadership skills are almost always a common trait. This often times can lead to a sense of intimidation from others as they feel threatened by her self-confidence. While company is a positive, it is not always necessary. In relationships, this has potential to be either a positive or negative. Allowing an alpha female to have her own times and space, or at least feel as if she is in control sometimes, is essential to the relationships well-being.

6. She knows how to love.

Strong-hearted and strong-willed describe her well. She won't experience damsel in distress moments and need to be saved by a boy, so you don't need to worry about her not being able to hold her own. When she loves, she loves hard in every way, shape, and form. She will challenge you to be the best you can be and provide support along the way, to any absurd idea you may have. She'll strive to make your duo the best team around. She doesn't live a mediocre life and won't let your relationship be that way either. She isn't afraid of her sexuality, either. If you have captured her heart, you can imagine she will love you well.

7. She is ambitious.

She dares to go there. As Kendrick would say, she has "hustle though, ambition, flow, inside her DNA." She believes she is responsible for her own life and if she has somewhere she wants or needs to be, she is the only means of which she will get there. Her personality thrives off taking responsibility for herself and for others. She lives void of the idea of restricting limitations.
