Posts on post V-day

All right..so it’s the 16th..more importantly I am at home on a Friday afternoon while the rest of you are at college grinding your teeth away at the endless hours of classes…ah I love life…and on that note, I wanted to start off on the event that left us all perplexed (me, at least) and warped..valentine’s day! And to all you happily committed, lost in love, blissfully unaware of anything else, get out! This isn’t for you…this is for the rest of us single ones who go by the belief that v-day sucks (well, as long as you’re single at least =)..)
The good part about this time was that chennai wasn’t enveloped with candy canes and red heart balloons and love songs all over..the bad part was that there were couples glued to each other everywhere..and that NDTV gave tips on v-day shopping…( I mean come on!..NDTV?!!)..I thought they were smart!!..
So how many of you went to the beach? I didn’t…and I heard enough about it to thank myself for not having gone there in the first place. Odd, isn’t it? How the whole tradition seems like such a waste of time, money and effort? Funnily enough, only most of the people who are single seem to feel that way? What is it? Jealousy maybe. I remember v-day back in school..that was way way way back, when I got a teddy bear (yeah, I know) for v-day. It felt good. And the next year when I was single, the whole thing seemed like a waste of time. I mean, I agree with the whole thought on ‘I don’t need v-day to prove to someone that I love them’ and stuff like that, but the whole idea of spending that one day to make time special seems like a good idea. It might be immature, but think about it. We do it for mother’s day, father’s day, friendship day and all that. So why not this? Is it cool to think otherwise, go away from the mob? Or is it really that juvenile? What do you think?
