As much as I don’t care to admit it, I’ve decided to come out and tell everyone the truth: I am in love with love. I’ve put on a fake persona for too many years, acting like I’m above all of the sappy love songs and romantic comedies. But the truth is, I cry over Nicholas Sparks novels and when I’m alone in my car, I belt out cheesy boy band songs. I am a secret love addict and this Valentine’s day, I am not going to hide my overwhelming, teenage girl fueled feelings.


The only thing I don’t like about Valentine’s day is all of the negative connotations. Instead of being the romantic holiday it started off as, it has become one of the most hated holidays. And I want to put a stop to it. Everyone deserves to feel the love on this special day, and I want to make sure students have Turpin have the most amazing Valentine’s Day they have ever experienced.


Sophomore Nate Braun  is going to have a fun Valentine’s day with his friends this  year, proving that you don’t need a date to have fun. “I’m going to eat lots of chocolate and have fun partying with my friends this Valentine’s day. I’m really excited,” Braun  said..


Junior Lyndsey Wheeler is looking forward to spending Valentine’s Day with her boyfriend. “I am so excited to spend Valentine’s day with the person who’s so special to me. I cannot wait to celebrate the day of love,” Wheeler gushed.


Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with friends or with a significant other, it is a holiday that should be celebrated with people you love, no matter who it is. Valentine’s day is a brilliant holiday that has gotten a bad reputation. Students at Turpin High School should turn that negativity around and realize how great it is to be in love with love.
