This year will be the first time I actively participate in Galentines. I usually celebrate valentines day by myself. With a pandemic still going on in 2021, I want to feel less lonely. I have spent so much time before and during the pandemic alone and to myself. My friends help my stay social and sane. The quality time I spend with my friends allow me to stay connected to people outside of my family. I no longer am in school and I do not work often so social connection with my friend is essential for me.
