For a soon to be 20-year-old bachelor on Valentine’s Day, it helps to remember the small things that make what would otherwise be something similar to every other day into something more special thanks to that spirit of love in the air.
Like staying up into the early hours of the morning reading a book about one of the worst workplace disasters in American history.
Or taking a quiz about said awful tragedy.
Playing Fire Emblem Heroes even seems to be just a touch more romantic, I’d say.
Oh, here’s something more in line with the holiday. Earlier today at a guest speaker I went to for my Investigative Reporting class, I found out that Burger King is doing a sex toy giveaway at certain stores. Which is…
Well, kind of incredible to see actually being a thing that’s happening, to be completely honest.
I also got to spend a few hours with a couple of my buddies from the newsroom at a Super Smash Bros. tournament in the Titan Student Union, which was a lot of fun!
I even made it to the third round of the main tournament.
Granted, I made it because of two other players disqualifying, and then lost bad because I didn’t get to practice those first two rounds, but still.
Did alright in the loser’s bracket at least. I actually got in some decent games there.
… Okay, so for me, it really was just a day like any other. But hey, hopefully your Valentine’s Day was great, since I’m always a bit of a sucker for a good romance deep down.
Though if you’re just planning on having a good Singles Awareness Day like I will, that’s awesome too.
