I’m not a big believer in Valentine’s Day. I usually just hand out hugs and cookies, but it doesn’t get much deeper than that. All of the marketing and advertising that goes into Valentine’s Day drives me a little nuts, so I try not to “buy” into it. I thought it was just the U.S. that was V day crazy, but boy was I wrong. Here at Anubanchonburi everyone is covered with heart stickers and I’ve already received 7 flowers and three erasers and it’s only 9 a.m. I really like the way it’s celebrated here, but maybe that’s because I can’t understand the commercials on the radio or read the signs posted outside the jewelry store. It seems there is a big emphasis on stickers and fake flowers rather than cards and candy. When I walked into my P1 classroom this morning I was bombarded with hugs and stickers. I seriously had to wait ten minutes until every student pasted a dozen stickers to my shirt, books and bag. I’m not gonna lie, I loved it. I almost want to frame this shirt as if the amount of stickers on it actually measures their love for me.
With all the love in the air I figured it was only appropriate to post something about feelings and mushy stuff, so I’m going to share with you some of my favorite ‘love songs’ right now, in no particular order, here goes..

My sticker count is currently in the eighties and shows no signs of stopping.
