I want to be Jennifer Aniston's BFF. I wish I could sing like Beyonce. My current obsession is Temple Run & a healthy dose of gossip. I think I have a shopping addiction. I want to live in New York. My dream job is Art Director at American Glamour. I have amazing friends. My Mum is my inspiration. I want to find a guy that looks like Ryan Gosling. It scares me that I will be 22 in four months. I want to travelling all around America in a funky car. I also wouldn't mind winning the lottery. I absolutely adore Kate Winslet. Tumblr is my new favourite website. I cannot wait to graduate in November.
So it's Valentine's Day... again. Last year, I said to my friend that this year I would not be single. Guess what? I'm still single. And you know what? It doesn't bother me in the slightest. Okay, so I was a little jealous seeing all the guys today holding big bunches of flowers and chocolates, but then I overcame that problem by popping into my local store and buying myself some Lindt chocolate. (Actually, my Mum bought them for me, but that's not the point). At this moment in time, I would say that I'm about 10 minutes away from a full on chocolate coma, and it was so worth it. For me, I'm not fussed that I don't have a boyfriend, because being single is actually pretty awesome. I can do what I want, when I want and I have absolutely no one to answer too. Chances are, if I did have a guy I'd probably have someone that hated Valentine's Day and wouldn't buy me anything, so I'd probably still find myself in my local buying myself chocolate. (Depressing, but oh so true). I'm not one of these girls that's constantly on the look out for my perfect guy, because what is it they say? 'When you stop looking for Mr Right, he will eventually pop up when you least expect it.' I do hope that's true because I stopped looking about two years ago, and there's still no sign of him. Ho hum.
Anyway, this post is dedicated to all the beautiful singletons out there, that are probably at this precise moment of time downing bottles of wine, eating copious amounts of chocolate and listening to Adele. (Don't deny it, she's the perfect singer for a single's Valentine's Day). Here's to being young, free and single!
Now, where's my chocolate?

I want to live in an apartment in Manhattan. I want to work for American Glamour. I want to live near Central Park. I want to catch an American accent. I want to meet an American guy. I want to shop in Bloomingdale's and Macy's. I want to catch the subway and know exactly what I am doing. I want to be familiar with every street. I want to ride in a yellow cab. I want to feel like I've lived in New York all my life. I want it to be a completely new chapter in my life. I want to feel scared about doing it, so that it spurs me on. I want to have fun. I want a completely new direction. I want to feel independent in a new city. I want to live my dream.
