Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and for all of you looking to celebrate it with your significant other, its time to scurry around in a panic trying to find the perfect gift for him or her. To me, this all seems a little unnecessary. Remember the days when making a simple mix-tape for the person you love was considered the perfect gift? It was the one way that you could tell that person everything you were feeling for them, with out blowing all of your saved up money. This year, I have decided to go a little retro, and revert back to the high school days when making a mix-tape was actually cool. Here is what I came up with:
