who knew...

...that going to a movie by myself really could be fun?!?!

(this is an example of the type person I pictured alone in movies... ha)

I mean, I've had a few of my friends tell me that they liked to do that every once in a while, but honestly, I always thought they were either 1) crazy or 2) extreme loners. And I never thought that I would find myself at a place where I could do it. Did I think I was too cool to go to a movie by myself? Absolutely not! Was I just scared? Definitely yes. Terrified? I wouldn't say terrified, but anxious to the point that I avoided it for 24 years...

Anyways, I officially overcame this fear tonight, and as you can tell, I'm a little excited about that! Especially because it was fun! And 17 Again was definitely a good movie choice. Like I said before, who knew?!?

I hope everyone else is having a delightful week!

Ooh! I loved when I discovered how much fun seeing a movie by myself could be!

Come to think of it...I should got see one alone soon. The first time I ever went to a theater by myself was to see "Across the Universe," and it was amazing.

Congrats on stepping out of your comfort zone and finding it pleasing. ;)

It is even better when you are the only one in the theater. This is a rare occasion, but one I cherish.

Glad you enjoyed, would not have been my movie choice though.

The first time I went to a movie by myself it was The Nanny Diaries. I was the only one in the theatre.

And it was awesome.

Glad you could experience the fun too!

I think I might try this sometime. I do love my solitude.

I'm kind of a fan of going out to eat alone... makes ppl wonder what your deal is and who cares. I end up doing more and more things alone (even now that I have someone around, I still like to go alone).
congrats chica! =)
