I honestly don't think of Valentine's Day as intrinsically special because it happens to also be my birthday
If my birthday were any other day, I'd spend it with my sweetheart(s) anyway and get gifts from them and other shit, so Valentine's day just feels redundant
I'm actually kind of annoyed about Valentine's Day because of the "awwww!" and "wow a Valentine's baby" remarks that come up automatically, along with all the vitriol and merchandising I see being directed at today
