For the past 4 years at school I have celebrated Valentine’s Day a little differently. Instead of spending the day thinking about any future partners I may have, I, along with the rest of my school celebrated ‘Galentine’s Day’. This essentially is the same as Valentine’s day except we recognise the amazing girlfriends in our lives.
January: the first month of the year, the time where everyone is setting their yearly resolutions (that will most likely be broken before the month is up!!), planning for the year ahead but for everyone still in school, it’s our last month of holidays. Throughout January, all over social media (almost anywhere we look), there is promotion of the new person that we become with the start of a new year. Well, I say that even though it’s a new year, can’t I be the same me?
