Love and Kisses

So, today is Valentine's Day and I love Valentine's Day! It's a day that is placed right in the middle of a not-so-stellar time of year, and it alleviates much of the gloom induced by January. There are hearts everywhere and pink and red and flowers, and good love music. I know people who hate the pressure of Valentine's Day, but I just see it as a chance to have some fun and let those you love know you love them. I also know a few people who don't like Valentine's Day because they're not dating anyone or married or whatever, and all I have to say to that is, "Since when is Valentine's Day only about love in your romantic relationships?" I'm not in a relationship, but in no way does that prevent me from expressing love to my parents, my siblings, my roommates, and my friends. I just don't see the big deal--have fun with Valentine's Day! So, here's what I'm going to do with Valentine's Day on my blog this year:

L is for laughing
  • I love to laugh with my family.
  • I love to laugh with Katelyn about the awkward moments we experience throughout out days.
  • I love to laugh when I watch The Office.
  • I love to laugh with Brooke about the vast amounts of nothing surrounding our jobs at the Physics Department.
  • I love to laugh out loud when I read books.
  • I love to laugh at witty song lyrics.
  • I love to laugh so hard my stomach hurts.
  • I love to laugh at stupid things.
  • I love to laugh when my brother John laughs.
  • I love to laugh when not-so-good things happen because then it helps me see things in perspective.
O is for outside
  • I love going outside when there's just a slight breeze.
  • I love going outside when it smells like summer.
  • I love going outside in the rain with an umbrella.
  • I love going outside in the mountains.
  • I love eating dinner outside during the summer.
  • I love taking walks outside.
  • I love how I feel when I successfully step outside my comfort, thus expanding my comfort zone.
  • I love the air outside when it snows.
  • I love looking outside when I'm cozy inside.
  • I love looking pretty on the outside, because it helps me feel better on the inside.
V is for vivre
  • I love living with purpose.
  • I love living in happiness.
  • I love living with friends.
  • I love living in close contact with my family.
  • I love living in a place where I can learn.

  • I love living close to a Target.
  • I love living in an age where I can blog and connect with people all over the country.
  • I love living in the latter days.
  • I love living in opportunity.
E is for energy
  • I love having energy to have a life outside of school.
  • I love having energy to dance.
  • I love having energy to learn.
  • I love having energy to support others, especially when their needs are greater than mine.
  • I love having energy to run.
  • I love having energy to persevere through writing tedious articles.
