Its the Eve of Vday (Valentines Day) and since other bloggers have had their say on the subject (some positive and some negative, No thats not their HIV status) I thought why in the blue hell shouldnt I contribute so i'll jump on the bandwagon and serve up a post on this "VDAY" phenomemon
I dont know about you guys but I think thats an awesome pic. Love Is the light in the darkness, the warmth in the cold and ones shelter from the storm. It engulfs and consumes our hearts and brightens up our lives like the Pic. The mere smile from ones significant other can move mountains and make a horrible day turn into a great one. And on somedays you may float with the intense joy it brings. However Its not all fine and dandy, its hard but nothing worth having is easy to acquire. That all encompassing Love you have for a person could rage and rage and eventually your heart goes pop!. Some liken it to the sound of glass cracking or the extinguishing of a fire. The light in your live vanishes and you find it just that much harder to wake up everyday. Sometimes the break is mutual, sometimes its one sided and sometimes its just devastating but no matter how you depart things never return to normal. Ah such is life. Ok where am I oh yes VDAY.
Honestly I think there are much better ways to express your Love to someone then with commercialized valentine gifts and on this day in particularly. Maybe I just dont conform to such social devices but buying a loved one or an apparent loved one a gift just because its valentines I think cheapens your love. Its just a way of buying a person or impress someone that you can spoil them with gifts. I mean if it wasnt valentines would you get him or her something? are you just buying it because its valentines and society dictates that on valentines you have to show your love by way of gifts? Its crap and mostly fake.
Ok you die hard valentine people fine! some peole do it sincerely ok relax, No no put the knife down. Im not anti love I believe it exists and I think when you fine it you become complete as corny as that sounds (YOU COMPLETE ME jeez that movie made that line corny). But love cant be confined to a day its infinite it can be eternal. Often lust is confused with love but thats another story. The eternal embrace like the pic below shows is something that you cant be deprived off. You can be seperated for years but your love will not waver. Till death do us part and beyond.
I mean look you like or love someone do stuff on the spur of the moment (you could go to spur though isnt very romantic). Gifts are usually appreciated more when they unexpected and sincere from the heart not being dictated by saint valentine. The gifts too the mini white bears and roses (some plastic! i mean honestly what a cheapo), and other perishables dont last, they just get stuffed at the back of some closet ir the maid throws them away eventually. Flowers fade and so does ink on a card but love in most cases remains. I would rather surprise the one a love or like get her flowers out of the blue, phone her, pick her up from work and treat her to lunch or a picnic, (havent given it mush thought_) but i would like to form lasting memories more than superficial gifts.
Now Tommorow a whole lot of people will wear red and prance around looking like every other idiot wearing red. Those who accidentally wear red well tough luck you will be part of the prancing and the struting and be part of the masses. You guys know I am not a fan of pink on guys but when a guy wears a pink suit (yes i saw it last year at wits) with pink shoes I draw the line. Only reason im going to campus tommorrow is to poke fun at these retards jeez. Dont give into commercialized love, Keep it real, keep it true and you will have it for eternity
