Happy Valentine's Day Everybody!

 "Valentine's day is perhaps the most potent symbol of our weird obsession with romantic love. Like why isn't Best Friend's Day the biggest shopping day of the year? Because, for some reason, we think you can only have loving, sustained, relationships with someone that you also sleep with. If you spend your life singularly obsessed with romantic love, you're going to miss out on a lot of what's fun about being a person."
- John Green

My favourite Valentine's Day to date was the one I spent playing video games with my best friend. He didn't even realize what day it was - but I have a vivid memory of him killing me in the video game for the hundredth time and then turning to me with a huge smile on his face and declaring in all sincerity: "This is the best day EVER!"

It might seem odd to some, but I had never felt more loved and appreciated. I talked to him on skype last night, and he still makes me feel loved and appreciated 8 years later. No matter what my romantic status, or how far apart we are geographically, I know that I can always count on him to be there for me. 

So, here's to best friends everywhere, whether you are sleeping with them or not. ;)

And now I'm going to stop being sappy and get back to work...
