Howdy, howdy! Happy Valentine’s day! Or Singles Awareness day, or VD day, or Chocolate Appreciation day, or Wednesday, or whatever. Since it’s a special, lovey-dovey day and I’m sitting over here all single, I thought I would take a moment to treat myself. I know I’ve said it before, but self-care really is important. And I’ve kind of been neglecting myself lately. Sure, I’ve been playing my mindless games, but Sunday was the first time I’ve watched anime in at least a month, probably closer to two. I can’t even remember the last time I read manga. Honestly, I’ve just been a bit blah towards everything lately. I need to change that.
So, after I write my words, I think I’m going to take the day off from my usual routine. I won’t worry about reading the things I’m supposed to be reading. I might even put writing on the novel to the side and write a random flash fiction piece or something. Instead of worrying about my goals, I’ll write whatever I feel like writing. But I’m coming up to a good part on the novel, so it’ll probably be that (I’m boring, I know). Then, who knows where the day will take me.
I might rewatch some Ouran High School Host Club. That’s about as close to romantic as I get, and it’s mostly because I adore the twins. There’s also Yuri on Ice. I could probably rewatch all of those episodes if I don’t procrastinate on my writing. Maybe I’ll just find something completely new to binge watch. On the other hand, I still haven’t finished rewatching Cardcaptor Sakura, which means I haven’t had a chance to watch the new episodes either. I was super excited when I first heard about the new episodes, but I even got blah over that. Shame on me.
Then again, I might not watch any anime. I might decide to read some manga instead. I’m so far behind on it all that no matter what I choose to read, I’ll have to start over again. I could always just stick with some old favorites. It has been a few years since I reread Angel Sanctuary. That’s always super fun. There are a couple of other titles I’ve been thinking about recently too, so I might try them again. Who knows?
The point is, I’m actually starting to miss some of the things that used to entertain me. What better day to get back to some old loves than Valentine’s day? What are your plans for the day? I know it’s a Wednesday, so many of you are probably working, but do you have any tiny (or huge) plans to pamper yourself or your loved one(s)? Feel free to comment here or on my social media pages. Even if you don’t like the holiday, I hope you have a wonderful day full of all kinds of good things!
