This whole week it has seemed that campus had been abuzz with the hype of Valentine’s Day. Clubs are selling goodies, people are planning trips and singles are lamenting. It has been a busy week for me, filled with term paper proposals, midterms, gatherings with friends and helping with the Student Fashion Association’s Valentine’s Day fundraiser. On Valentine’s Day, I like to focus on all of the love I have from the family and friends in my life. Growing up my mom always made Valentine’s Day special. We would have homemade waffles with strawberries for breakfast and exchange gifts over dinner. Now that I’m on my own, I’m starting some new traditions. Hallmarks of this week have been making handmade valentines for my friends, a festive gathering for my student government group and my cousin coming to California for a weekend visit. Here are some highlights from my week.
