Valentines day is coming and I received great news! My guy FINALLY is off restriction. This means he gets his privileges back, which include taking OPP's and pass to leave post and come see me. I am so excited for this, and not because Valentines day is right around the corner, but because this means I don't have to spend the 2+ hours driving up to him.
On the note of Valentine's day....I actually hate this holiday. I should wake up everyday with a smile on my face and be happy to have people in my life that love me. Saint Valentine is a martyr in the Roman Catholic Church and has nothing to do with people being in love and celebrating love, mostly in a physical relationship. Valentine's day was created in around the Middle Ages and managed to manifest its way in to mainstream culture generation after generation, which has made me dislike it. I would rather have everyday be special and exciting, rather than have a commercialized holiday be the day I am lavished with gifts, told I am extremely loved and then have cliche passionate, romantic sex after dinner. However, I am pretty sure he plans on coming to see me that weekend, but I do not plan on doing anything special. I actually have a track meet on that Saturday the 15th, that I am hoping to participate in, and maybe he can finally see me in action :)
