Love Day

Happy Valentine's Day
or
SAD (Singles Awareness Day)

But February Fourteenth is something more than just a commercial holiday. It's a day of expressing love and affection. (& this year, it came after a "Friday the 13th") Teenage emotions can be somewhat of a roller coaster ride at times; today is one of the worst days, especially for those dealing with depression, and the consequences of this, such as self-harm, etc.

TWLOHA (To Write Love On Her Arms) - Check it out if you don't know yet what it is. Depression is a topic that's very close to me personally. So today - although you should do this all the time, but especially today - let someone you love know how you feel. It doesn't take very much time or effort; just let them know that you're there, that you care. It could make a huge difference.

Now get out there and start sharing the love.

On another note, I'm going watch Slumdog Millionaire tonight. Has anyone else seen it yet? What did you think of it?

Matt Nathanson's Come On, Get Higher is presently stuck in my head.

I'd heard about TWLOHA before, but I never knew what it was. I think I may have seen a link to it or something on Paramore's website (which sadly won't open on the last remaining computer in my house).

Hehe, Singles Awareness Day. Good one.

Hey! Thanks for the comments. Joel's a friend of mine...

I just came back from watching Slumdog. It's a great movie, well wriiten and directed. I also found many of the scenarios to be plausible, having visited India myself. I think you'll enjoy it!

Oh my goodness they were! I mean I know we were in a rich neighborhood and everything, but you don't have to give me the staredown just because I have less money than you. Ya know?
People are stupid. haha.
I love car rides. The most fun I have with my friends usually happens in car rides. haha.
