02/15/2004 Archived Entry: "Belated Valentine's Day"

And I missed a Valentine's Day post. Well, I was busy, yo. >.<

At 11ish in the morning, I had to worry about the Writing Skills Test (henseforth refered to as the WST) at SJSU. It's a requirement for my transfer. Why did I sign up for it on Valentine's Day? Well, when I signed up for it, I just saw that it was in Februrary and forgot to pay attention to what specific day it was. ^^;; Anyway, as is the case with any standardized test, it was pretty nyeh. Maybe I'm a slow reader or something, but I didn't finish, I think, eight questions out of seventy-two. I still think I did well enough to pass though, so eh.

Directly following was my friend Desiree's birthday party. Yes, she scheduled it for Valentine's Day. I guess there are so many single people in my group of friends that it really doesn't matter much. ^^;; Anyway, we essentially had fun hang-out time at the park and then her house. Um... there was a lot of people... had a lot of fun... I got to play some King of Fighters against human opponents for a change... yeah, it wasn't a bad party at all.

Now, the question is, what do I think about Valentine's Day. Well, honestly speaking, I don't think it's special at all. I do agree with some people that it's merely a superficial and commercial holiday. On the other hand, I also agree with others who say, sure you can say "people can express love anyday," but who really does? I don't know whether I should endorse it or renounce it. Well, either way, even though I'm single, I still kinda like it. You know why? Because my single guy friends and I hang out together on V-Day in a tradition we started last year (known as the "Valentine's Day Extravoganza"). It's good fun. XD That, however, did not come to pass this year, as it was my friend's birthday party. Throughout the party, I could sense an anti-Valentine's Day sentiment from some people. In a way, I suppose I can sympothize, but at the same time, I don't see where they're coming from. Personally, I'm just fine being single. I figure it's worthless and stupid to let myself get down simply because I don't have a girlfriend. There are plenty of other things to life and darnit, I intend to enjoy them. ^^

I do have to agree that I have a lot of more important things on my mind than to worry about getting a boyfriend any time soon. And especially at my age, I'm not worried about boyfriends for now which is a good thing.
I won't ever bring myself to play video games in front of other people especially if those people are better than me. I have this strange fear of screwing up in the game infront of them. I know it sounds completely stupid but it's so true. Which is why at parties where my gamer buddies are at, I kind of sit on the couch in the back, watch and take notes. ^_^ Then I try their moves in the privacy of my own room.
And as for V-Day, I don't find it special at all either. It's no big deal at my school apart from the few girls walking around with big heart balloons and giant teddy bears. Your "Valentines Day Extravoganza" sounds interesting. What do you guys actually do? On Valentines Day if it's a school day it's like every other day for me. I don't exactly care really.
Yupp... *looks at long entry* I'm just glad that your commenting doesn't have a limit as to how much you can actually write. Oi, I think I wrote more than you did on your weblog entry. ^_^`
