Kevin has been gone for almost a month now. He's still state-side, but will be going overseas next week. He sent me a great V-day gift and having been in a long distance relationship for 4 years, I never really had a proper V-day, so nothing to mourn there.
I envisioned my weekends spent in complete solitude. I saw myself reading by day and falling asleep to Hulu at night, but so far, it hasn't been that way at all. Maybe my friends are making an extra effort to include me, since they know Kevin is gone.
Whatever the reason, I find it much easier to say yes than to say no. That's not really a revelation, is it? Maybe if you're like me, you think, "I won't know anyone there," or "I don't usually like __ events." You rationalize a reason not to go when in reality,you get to know people a little better or enjoy yourself in spite of your initial reluctance. So why not? Say yes.
