This summer I feel like a bus came and hit me with a big sign that says ‘ADULTING’ on it in big red letters.

Ain’t No Valentine but Here Are My Favorite Couples

Valentine’s Day. The one day out the year is when you have to express your love to your significant other or others.  Wether you wake up to breakfast in bed and roses or a text message being told that you’re the side chick, Valentine’s Day is only one day and it isn’t that serious.  Social media is filled with harsh memes of side chick versus main chick and also tears of loneliness. Instead of crying about not being showered with gifts, I’ve decided to embrace my favorite couples and hope that one day I will get married and have something like…
