I find it strange that the holidays are so notoriously “tough” for singles like me. Valentine’s Day, eh? Alright, I understand that slightly more so, but what is it about the stretch between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve that has people existentially pondering their memberships in the Lonely Hearts Club and forlornly watching the snow accumulate out their windows or better yet hoping it'll snow in this tropical country? Somebody cue the “All By Myself” (I’ll be at the lounge). HAHAHAHA
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that an awful lot of emphasis is placed on companionship during the holidays. Blame the chick-flicks, the tv commercials, the shows, everything that has a connection to it. HAHA We’re encouraged to find the perfect gift for our partners, indulge in all the cozy holiday activities that are also coincidentally quite romantic, and even track down that perfect midnight kiss. But I swear even singles can still ball out this time of year.
For the singles, naa it doesnt matter!. Keep in mind that as long as you are with your family and your circle of friends, Life is already complete. :) As for the happily in love, keep the fire burning! I envy the love you have for each other. I hope you'll spend another holiday next season together. :) And as for me, hmmm too many are struggling right now because they can't even have a decent meal and a good shelter there down south (Cagayan de Oro, Ph). Typhoon 'Sendong' inflicted too much damages and destruction. So i don't have a right to complain about my life, my prayers goes to the victims of the typhoon. Prayers can do so much. P.S. ransacked my closet and found many unused clothes, better donate it at the Phil. Red Cross. Thinking of donating more but i'm just a student i can only do what i can do. && I think that's one of the good ways to share the Christmas love. *smiles
