I am 19 years old and I have decided to get involved with Student Life because it provides the youth of today with much needed support regarding mental health.
Even though February has only just begun, every single person has one thing on their minds: Valentine’s Day. This is the first Valentine’s Day when I am involved in a relationship and truly it is a relief. Seeing all those heart-shaped chocolates and the abundance of “I love you” greeting cards when you’re single makes you kind of sad. I have been planning something with my boyfriend since December and it is finally time to do it: I’m getting a tattoo! It was supposed to be a Christmas present from him, but we agreed the winter holidays
was not the best time for it. We postponed it for February, so we have more time to do this properly. I am very indecisive by nature, so I had an entire Pinterest folder filled with ideas. He helped me pick one and a body part to get it on. Therefore, I’m getting a crown next to a pen on my shoulder. I will signify my undying passion for writing and I’m sure it’s the best choice, as this love for creation will never leave me.
However, the peak of this month is not going to be my tattoo. As his birthday is in March, we decided to celebrate it late February and take a short trip to Holland. I always wanted to go there as the Netherlands looks lovely in pictures and videos. He has visited it before and said going there again is the thing he dreams about all the time.
All in all, Valentine’s Day has never been about gifts and expensive dates. It truly is about the love you feel for your significant other and the tender moments you spend with them. I truly believe eloping to a different scenery with your other half on the occasion is more precious than all the diamonds in the world. Making those memories with them and sharing that experience will never increase or decrease in value like jewellery. It will stay with you forever. That’s why it is truly priceless.
