Valentines Day doesn’t have to suck!! Sorry, I’m getting in early before my dash really begins to flood with sad, self pitying Valentines Day posts from the population of single people on Tumblr.
Just a reminder that your self worth has no basis on whether or not you are in a relationship!! I am a strong cool funny independent lady with no man and I would still be a strong cool independent lady even if I did have a man; the only constant in this equation is me. Thus, the only constant equation in anything is you and you have the power to decide whether a singular day affects you positively or negatively.
Don’t for the love of God reblog self deprecating “humorous” (they’re not humorous, you’re not funny) posts aimed at making you feel awful on Valentines Day. I think Valentines Day is cute as heck!! Relationships are really cute! Love is really cute!! Just because you’re currently not experiencing romantic love doesn’t mean you’re not experiencing other kinds of love and maybe you should celebrate that instead of sitting alone in your room crying and getting bitter and jealous over other people because that is guaranteed to make you feel bad but I guess if you’re into that …
Don’t buy into the ‘single’s awareness day’ crap; that’s awful and it contributes to the societal mindset that being single is something that’s bad (when it is not) and insinuates that your self worth is based on whether you are in a relationship or not (it’s not). Don’t do it because you probably also guilt people who ARE in a relationship and who WANT TO ENJOY that relationship without wondering whether the fact that they are in a relationship makes other people depressed (??? when I lay it out like this do you realise how ridiculous that is.)
Do decide to do cute things for people you love!! Maybe not romantically but it’s still love, right?? Who cares if it’s cheesy or corny, do it. Send really creepy and hilarious Valentines to Tumblr users you like or admire. Make chocolates for your friends (I’m pretty sure my best friend did this one year and effectively made it The Best Valentines Day ever). Draw or write about your OTPs!! It’s like the one day of the year you can do whatever you want with your OTP and people will just accept it in the spirit, do you realise how great that is.
Just do something cute and positive so you feel cute and positive and make other people feel cute and positive instead of negative and crying and hating life and thinking about inadequacy. Given a choice between these two things I know what I would pick!
THIS FOREVER. This is how I feel about Valentine’s Day. Seriously. You don’t need to be in a relationship to enjoy it. I use Valentine’s Day to appreciate the love that my friends give me. I give my friends stuff and have fun with my friends. Because I love them and they love me.
Friendship is incredibly important, and romantic love is not the only kind of love.

“When you talk about guns you always hear a lot about the Second Amendment and the Founding Fathers, and what they would say if they were here. Well, I for one think that if the Founding Fathers were here today, they would be super freaked out by cars. You can talk to them all you want about the Second Amendment, and they would just yell, ‘What are all these metal beasts doing rolling down the thoroughfare?’ And you’d tell them, ‘Those are cars’. And then you’d try to talk to them about militias and they would scream, ‘How can you speak of militias when steel dragons fly through the sky?’ And you’d say, ‘Those are airplanes.’ But even if they could wrap their heads around that they would eventually ask, ‘Why are all the slaves out?’ And they would think that. You can groan all you want, but they would think that.
And yes, the Founding Fathers wanted you to have the right to bear arms, but the guys who wrote that would pee through all eight layers of their pants if they saw what guns are now. In 1787 shooting a bullet was slightly faster than throwing one. If you wanted to be bulletproof in 1787 you put on a heavy coat. So with that in mind, I’m all about Americans having guns as long as they’re the muskets from 1787 that take forever to load.”
I don’t remember where I read this anymore, but someone said that the Mother games were an emotionally healthy experience for players. That playing them was recommended, among many reasons, because they were good for the heart.
Mother games are lovely. Go play them.
if you use the word ‘sexy’ to describe why/how something is sexy
it’s not sexy
omg seriously pads and tampons should be free to all women because it’s not something we want to buy and they’re so ridiculously expensive we’re down like 20 bucks every month which adds to about $240 a year and we have to spend it and guys don’t and it’s not our fault so they should be free
We should just stop buying them and bleed on everything they love
Waking up and checking your Tumblr like it’s the morning paper
