Oh lookie what I got yesterday alongside with my Non-no magazine! Hello Kitty earplugs for my..well, player. I do not have an iPod. I have a Creative ZEN player that my dad bought from The States a few years back. Actually, he is going to travel there again soon for a week. I wonder what he will bring me this time. Oh, wait! I’m an adult now. I don’t even live at home anymore. Why should he bring me anything? :D I guess I’m still a daddy’s girl at heart. I feel like I am more like him than my mom, by nature. How do you feel about you and your parents?
Magazine freebie gifts are wonderful! If they’re good quality.
January is almost over. This means that February is just around the corner and that means the Valentines Day “hype”. Though I have the feeling it has already begun as I see heart balloons and chocolate already been sold at the stores. As a non-american Valentines Day does not mean anything special to me. I have probably explained this a hundred and one times but in finnish the february 14th is called “Friendship Day”. As kids we used to give our closest friends cards or little gifts. Nowadays, as an adult, if you are being a good boyfriend, you maybe give your girlfriend some sort of a cute teddy bear or chocolate. But, I guess it’s the finnish culture (or the men in my circle of friends) hardly anyone really aknowledges the day being nothing but ordinary. Unless you’ve been together only a few months and are still at that wonderful dreamy phase of the relationship. So, for me, I am trying to cover the “Boohoo, no one will give me a fluffy teddy bear or a box of chocolates this year :(!” by having a positive attitude towards the day. I might buy myself a little treat on that day. Hey, no one’s gonna love you unless you love yourself ;)!
By the way, the title refers to this song by Evanescence. It’s from their very old unpublished album full of demos.
How do you feel about Valentines Day?
