Talk of the Brown: Valentine’s edition

Felipe Umana ’11

Well ,Valentine’s Day to me is pretty much like any other day. I don’t know – I don’t really think of it as a holiday necessarily. Not really in a relationship, don’t really eat a lot of candies…

I’m actually a big fan of Valentine’s Day, because at home whenever it comes up my dad always buys my mom, my sister and I a flower and gets us candy and gives us a card and just tells us how much he loves us. And he like taught my little brother and my older brother to do the same thing so they always do that for us too. So – I don’t know – it was never really a romantic sort of holiday for me because I never really celebrate it with a boyfriend or anything. It was always a family sort of event … for the guys to tell the girls how much they love them. I really miss it while I’m here, because I want to be home and have that sort of celebration.

I guess I didn’t used to like it – or I didn’t have any thoughts on it – but this is my first one with a boyfriend, so it’ll be interesting. I don’t know – maybe that’ll make it more exciting, maybe it won’t. I guess we’ll see.

It’s like every other day for me, just like my birthday, just like any holiday. There’s just work, and I go about the day normally.
