I freaking HATE crowds. Crowds at the grocery store? Yuck. Crowded movie theaters? GO HOME! Crowded subways and trains? GET ME OUT OF HERE.
Why do I hate crowds so much, yet cannot stand being alone?
Being single is really weird in February. With Hallmark and Hershey breathing down my neck, I am somehow supposed to feel inadequate because I am fucking single. I apologize for my language, but this is unscripted blog where I need to be real here.
Since when did being single mean disease? Couples are everywhere. Love is everywhere. And for the captain of the lonely hearts club, I do not count this month. Maybe that’s why I am always depressed in February, but I highly doubt it.
So, I checked my facts.
– Although “Blue Monday,” is in January, February is the most depressing month of the year, according to an online poll.
– According to the Bureau of Labor, more layoffs happen in February.
– In February, depression rates are just as high as they are during the month of November, the highest month on average for suicide attempts.
– Football season is over. What other sport do we have to look forward to?
– Valentines Day.
I guess the world needed another holiday to remind them that they are alone. I hate being alone. I really do. It really aches my bones and leaves me feeling worthless. I know I am not. That’s besides the point. I know I am one of a billion people… but they say it’s possible to feel alone in a crowded room. Is to possible to feel alone in a crowded life?
