Right. The love month. (*rolling my eyes right now)
Love. Yeah. I asked around what Love means for a single and yep, you guessed it right–love is loving yourself, love is family and friends, love is being free—you get the flow . You can probably relate. But if I can just be honest, this is the time when I wonder if there’s something wrong with me that’s why I remain single. This is the time when I usually see sweet couples and either I wish them luck or I just simply curse them (usually, i do the latter. lol).
I know I shouldn’t be bitter but I just can’t help it. Especially now that I like someone but he doesn’t like me back. Well, technically, it’s just impossible for us so I didn’t push it. Long story.
There are times that I wish we just skip this month. But then again, this month is good for business— come on, chocolates and flowers everywhere?! Demands for these are high! Wonder if I can pull extra income this month. LOL. So yeah, we shouldn’t skip this month. Forget what I said earlier.
Airline ticket sales are booming also this month especially on the 14th itself. So, watch out for a whole lot of promos! If you like to travel like me, you can buy cheap tickets internationally or locally. I still have yet Batanes in my list, even though it’s on sale, it’s still expensive and usually not included in the promo. No surprise there. Travel expo maybe. We just had one this Feb 5, but I wasn’t able to go. Buggers!
Every year, if the 14th falls on a work day, I usually go on leave and treat myself. Actually, it’s just to escape the serenades and the love jives hovering in the work place which most of the time render me unproductive and distracted in my work. Since I can’t work anyway, why not go and enjoy the day myself! This year, it falls on a Sunday so I will probably go to church and avoid the malls.
I know what you’re thinking. No, I’m not a loner. I do have lots of friends, and yeah, half of them are single and it’s during this time that I don’t like to be with my own category. Because, we will just end up doing crazy stuffs anyways. But sometimes, I get tempted and we go run amok the city.
There are a lot of things that keeps a person happy and one of them is just simply being free. I mean, even if you’re in a relationship, you can still feel free. It’s how we use that freedom that can either lead us to happiness or destruction. Wait! We’re talking about love right? How did I get to discussing about freedom?! Well, it does relate in some way. You go figure it out.
