It's almost that time of the year and I find myself comfortable even amid the Muni Long's "Hrs & Hrs" phenomenon. Although, people are playing it like it's the air we breathe in, no one can deny the greatness of it. "Hrs & Hrs" is quite the catchy romance song of the moment right now, and as a result it has become the soundtrack for every couple video on social media. I would argue that is the anthem for love or being in love as we know it today. If you still don't what time I'm talking about by now, I'm referring to Valentine's Day, also known as Single Anonymous Day, the hallmark day of love, or plainly put just February 14th. The spotlight isn't just on the couples, but it's on the single folks too. This day weeds out the lovebirds from the rest of the world unlike any other day.

The daily grind for most people today is working eight-to-twelve-hour shifts. Subsistence living or more commonly known living referred to as "paycheck to paycheck." The wait until pay day can feel like forever and even like all that labor wasn't worth it. The pay and the cost of living these days just isn't adding up. No matter how much money we make the costs of everything just continues to increase. Minimum wage has not yet caught up to the price of gas or rent.
