I’m pretty sure Valentine’s Day has been going downhill ever since the elementary school days of cute paper valentines for all and delicious homemade cupcakes. Still, every year, I try to do something somewhat awesome. This year it’s a Tuesday followed by a Wednesday when I will have to submit a paper and write a midterm. So, I’ll be working a lot — decidedly not awesome V-Day activity. To honour the spirit of love and chocolate, I’ll bring Hershey’s Hugs to my ballet students (we don’t know each other that well); I’ll send a cheesy mass “Happy V-Day, love you!” text; then I’ll eat the chocolate my mom will send me and Skype with the object of my affection. And we’ll get excited about the real celebration of all things romantic when he picks me up at the Edmonton airport Wednesday night and we spend a cozy Valentine’s weekend in Jasper. After all, I’m a grown up now.
