How To Rock Being Single On Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day you are probably dreading being alone, again. More so if you have no luck in the dating department despite having met up with more people than you can count in your lifetime. Or perhaps this could be the first time you will have to face this day alone – post break up.

If you are the latter, you’re going to absolutely hate the flowers, chocolates and the lovey-dovey display around every corner you turn. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Who says you need to have a significant other to be happy this Valentine’s Day?

Life is too short to waste your time searching for the one just so that when this day comes around every year, you can be like everyone else who seemingly have it all together. Instead, why not take this day (or any other day, really) to celebrate your singleness?

Love Yourself

The first thing anyone should learn to do is to love one’s self. That’s easier said than done as most of us are too hard on ourselves, preferring to hate ourselves for all our flaws, particularly after surviving a breakup.

Don’t think that this is an exercise where you have to love yourself first before someone else will (the world doesn’t work like that) but there is some merit in getting to know and to be kinder to yourself, more so when you are not feeling your best.

By loving yourself, you can learn to be by yourself and to take pleasure in it. By taking care of yourself, you can rest and not crash and burn when submitting to the world’s demands. By appreciating yourself, you’ll be in a better position to understand others and a bit more empathetic in identifying with them especially when they are going through a tough time themselves.

Treat Yourself

One of the best ways to love yourself is to treat yourself to nice things every once in a while because you deserve it. So go ahead and have that ice cream cone (in the flavor you like) on a hot day or a whole tub of it when you are feeling down. You can afford to have a tummy now – no one is going to complain.

Don’t be afraid to splurge on that nice clothing you see at the window display or have a nice sit down dinner after doing a good job at work. Grab candy that remind you of your childhood, without feeling childish about it.

Treating yourself can also mean doing things for yourself and by yourself. You don’t need approval from anybody either. There is no greater joy than to watch that movie you have been waiting for since the first trailer release instead being dragged to yet another horror film or chick flick you have little interest in.

Improve Yourself

As mentioned before, there’s nobody and nothing holding you back from doing things for yourself. Likewise, you are in the best position to improve yourself as a single. Of course, improving yourself is subjective like advancing your career, changing your job, or giving back to the world by volunteering.

But it can also be the little things like learning how to cook (very useful skill to have regardless of your sex) or how to do your own plumbing. It can be taking up a new, challenging, or obscure hobby. It can be learning to play an instrument or a new language. Heck, you can even go back to school to pursue that course you like.

You have all the time in the world to enhance yourself. As they say, YOLO and your single life is the best time to do everything you’ve always dreamed of.

Find Yourself

As you go about on your quest for self-improvement, you will eventually "find" yourself. I can’t guarantee that it will a straightforward road but in due time you’ll find out. Somewhere down the road, you will find that you have changed from your past self and perhaps emerged as a better, stronger, wiser you.

Take the opportunity to travel because what could be a better way to experience the world, tick off your bucket list, and find yourself, than a soul-searching journey into the unknown? There’s nothing holding you back from exploring the world. You have no ties and being unattached, you don’t have to report in every two seconds or reply a message when you’re dead tired from a great day outdoors.

Be Yourself

Embrace your looks, your quirks, your thoughts, your beliefs, whatever it is that makes you, you. Find that which defines you. Do things that you know you will enjoy based on your interest instead of what others want or expect from you. If that includes bingeing on a snack and a 5-season series, on your couch, in your pajamas, do it unabashedly and unapologetically.

As a single person, you have no one to impress and you do not need to meet other people’s expectations. You do not have to dress up for anyone but yourself – choose to do it on the days you feel like it for yourself. Scratch that. Dress however you want as you think best reflects yourself.

Remember, you are your own person. Be so busy being youself as you go about finding, improving, treating and loving yourself that you realize that being single is just as fun, if not better.

Page Transitions with CSS3

In the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of single page websites lying around the internet, most of them using JavaScript for some transitions effect. Well, now I’m gonna teach you how you can have your own, but instead I’ll be using CSS Transitions and the :target property to do all the magic.

Single page layouts are all the rage now, especially for portfolios.

A tutorial about how to create a simple expanding overlay effect using the CSS clip property and CSS transitions.

Timeline is a jQuery plugin specialized in showing a chronological series of events. You can embed all kinds of media including tweets, videos and maps, and associate them with a date. With some design tweaks, this will make it perfect for a portfolio in which you showcase your work and interests.

Fullscreen Slit slider with jQuery and CSS3

A tutorial on how to create a fullscreen slideshow with a twist: the idea is to slice open the current slide when navigating to the next or previous one. Using jQuery and CSS animations we can create unique slide transitions for the content elements.

Almost every single Xbox executive we profiled in this video last year has left the company

Boyd Multerer, the genius Microsoft engineer who founded Xbox Live, helped build the Xbox 360, and led the development of the three-operating-systems-in-one Xbox One platform, announced on Twitter today that he’s left Microsoft to pursue new opportunities. Multerer has been on leave since the Xbox One launched; he and his wife Keri launched the interactive erotica site Silkwords back in Februrary, and now he says he’s focusing on other new startup ideas.

But more importantly, Multerer’s departure means that almost every single person on the Xbox One team we profiled last November when that console…

Name your own price for Radiohead singer Thom Yorke’s latest single

Well, well, well, what do we have here? It looks like there’s one little present left under the Christmas tree, and if you’re a Radiohead fan you’ll likely be pleased. Lead singer Thom Yorke has posted a brand new single online, called “You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry,” and you can stream or download it right now for free, though you should really pay what you think the track is worth.

The song joins Yorke’s impressive collection of solo work, including his most recent album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes. But we wouldn’t blame you connected the track to Radiohead — indeed, the single evokes some of the group’s best work from 2007’s In Rainbows. Like that album, the single is available through a pay-what-you-wish model. According to R…

Twitter gives MIT researchers access to every single public tweet

Twitter is opening up its vault for researchers at MIT’s Media Lab, and it’s giving them $ 10 million to try and glean some insights from the deluge of tweets. The team of researchers, working under the title “Laboratory of Social Machines,” will have access to Twitter’s highly valuable “fire hose” of live public tweets, as well as archives of every public 140-character-or-less utterance posted to the service since its founding in 2006. With the raw data, the group intends to “create new platforms for both individuals and institutions to identify, discuss, and act on pressing societal problems,” according to a statement from MIT.

The group’s goals are fairly vague at this point, but the researchers appear to be focusing on magnifying…
