Diary Entry 75
[ << Prev | Diary Index | Next >> ]

The first day in February has arrived. I don't like February.

First of all, February is really cold. Not so much now that I'm in California, I suppose, but still one of the coldest months of the year.

The main reason, of course, is Valentine's Day. It's a holiday I can't easily avoid, because it's advertised everywhere—newspapers and radio being the places that I actually pay attention. And, like Christmas and New Year, it's a holiday that does its best to make you feel like crap if you're not with someone. And I never am.

Last year wasn't so bad, because I actually had a date for an upcoming dance, for the first time in years. But this year promises to be as empty and depressing as ever. I hate Valentine's Day.
