Valentine's Day is Overrated by MirrorKey Valentine's Day is Overrated by MirrorKey
The most horrible thing happened as I was drawing this: My computer crashed, and then decided to do a disk check (which took a whole half hour, dammit Intel Core). When I reopened SAI, and tried to open this picture (it was finished, all it needed was a background), the file wouldn't open because it was corrupted. ;w; 3 hours lost..... however, I did have the sketch saved as a separate file, so I was able to recreate the picture to some extent.

Annnnnd now to the subject of Valentine's Day. It sucks. It used to be a Christian holiday in honor of some saint, but now it's an over-commercialized way for big companies to earn money off of chocolate and engagement rings. And quite honestly, it doesn't feel very special anymore.

lol I'm gonna submit this to the valentine's gift exchange and send it to a bunch of people
*haunts you with sheet over head*

I love Valentines, and love making and drawing cards and crafts for it. But I prefer Halloween... In fact, Halloweeb may be my favourite holiday all year round xP

I share the pain of losing work (drawings and essays) thanks to computer fails. I screamed, I cried, I ate french fries, I rebelled, I persevered. Looks like you handled it quite well, and thank goodness this precious artwork survived! :D

The local college has a bunch of his grammar posters hung up all around the school xD I've always loved his blunt honesty, and the way he draws :P

*sarcastic tone* No, I just happen to be a 13 year old with a high school diploma :D There's a sort of games club for families with autistic children, and it's held at the college monthly.

Lol! I see, I think you mentioned something about a relative of yours having autism. Games club? Like video games, or something else?

Video games, board games, the parents talk amongst themselves, there's always a movie, it's generally just a really fun night :D They hold it every month, and I admire The Oatmeal's posters every time xD

Adorable.

My school overhypes valentines like...valentines. Seriously, there's a poetry contest, a card contest, three raffles and a delivery service where you can buy gifts for your special someone and have them given to them in class on the day itself. A christmass tree made out of cans got repurposed and is now a red tree with so many cutout-and-colour cupids, it looks ridiculous. And worst of all, this stared about 3-4 weeks BEFORE Valentines day.

Still gonna buy a heart lolipop though ^_^ Those things are tasty.

Yeah, the only good thing about Valentines day is all the candy. :D However, it seems that most American holidays focus on the food. Halloween? Candy. Valentines Day? Chocolate. Thanksgiving? Huge Thanksgiving dinner. Easter? Chocolates and candy. The only holidays that actually focus on the holiday cheer are Christmas and 4th of July (I don't think new years is a very big deal around here). It's kind of ridiculous the way we've forgotten all about what holidays are actually about.

That's basically how I feel when the whole world gets out of school before my district does. (We're so late, lol)
Hehe, yep~
I would totally buy this is a card and give it to all my schoolmates if I could. Hehe.
