So I am starting to embrace this new life. I have had to face being alone, for the most part. I did get a job so I at least get a few seconds of adult interaction with customers and a little more with the usual's that come in practically every day. But what I have done not once but twice now since being here was go to the movies all by myself. The first time I went, I saw The Vow, and I will be honest I was a little bummed I had to go alone, but I really wanted to see it so I wasn't going to let being alone keep me from seeing it. And I am so glad I went, and yeah I almost chickened out when I got there and it was all couples pretty much but I put on my happy face bought my ticket and actually sat in the same row as another girl who was there alone. Totally made me feel better. It was a really great movie and I love that it was based on a true story, because lets face it, it sucks going to a romantic movie knowing that most of the nice stuff is made up...but this love really exists out there.
Then for the 2nd time I went and saw Act Of Valor last night. I actually remember getting an email a long time ago wanting Justin or I to be like extras or something, but I thought it was a fluke. Obviously, not. Anyways, same thing, no one to go with so I got to the movie theater which was a different one than before. There was one other guy in the theater, I kind of laughed to myself. Then a few more people came in. But it wasn't as packed. In case you haven't seen it, it was a really good movie and really well done. Sad? yes, very sad. From the beginning I figured out the story line a little and was fighting tears most of the movie. But I love that they used real SEALs which is supposedly controversial, anyways. It was just good.
I think I have got something going on here though. I am confident in myself to be able to attend a movie by myself. I don't care what people think, heck if they even notice that girl sitting alone. I don't NEED someone, and you know what? even if this is just a small thing like going to the movies alone, I will take it.
How about you guys, anyone ever went to the movies solo?
Oh, I've also already conquered eating out alone.
Just call me miss independent ;)
