I wrote this five years ago today. I guess it's stood the test of time pretty well.
I still think about the same girl on this day, that's for sure.
Everybody's knocking Valentine's Day.
It's The Big Thing, being all noncommercial and shit. Plus, some people think that they're being nonconformists by ripping on this holiday, so that makes them feel special.
Well, I just want to say, even though I haven't felt this way every year, I just want to say that I wish I had a special someone with whom I could exchange little tokens of affection and maybe take out to a nice dinner.
So what if it's become a Hallmark holiday? That doesn't erase its underlying message. That doesn't mean you have to stop observing it. That doesn't have to mean that your feelings for that special person are superficial as well.
Get over yourselves with your jadedness and your superiority.
I wish I had someone to share this day with, and I bet most of you, that don't already have someone, I bet most of you do as well.
