♥ Dare To Do Things ALONE / Happy Thought Day1 ♥

Aside from the Hit-List I am trying to complete, written at the back of my hypothalamus is A LIST OF THINGS TO DO ALONE  and/or  SIMPLE THINGS TO DO FOR FUN like riding a bike, planting a tree, making a compost pit or send a message in a bottle.

.

The truth is I never was a loner and I’ll admit it, I am the ‘dependent’ type of girl. So doing things alone was never my forte and if I ever do things myself  [stuff  like running some select errands] I would have to gather all my guts just to do it.  But I seriously contemplating to do some stuff alone, especially fun things! Just to spend some enjoyable and/or relax “me” time. Last Friday, I decided to start with something which I’ve been wanting to do for years but never had the courage to do so. – I watched a movie (Tagalog!) at a movie-house ALONE.

.

I cannot freaking believe it at first but since I had the opportunity and the very important impulse urge, with half-closed eyes, I bought a ticket for Temptation Island ( The Remake ). { I’d love to write a comparative review of the remake and the 1980 original movie, soon! After I finish watching the original. } It’s The Experience! Nervous I was, I took a glimpse at the time printed in my movie ticket, then I realized that I still had an hour to roam around the mall. I went to the shoe boutique “PayLess” and to my new favorite spot in malls – HOME SECTION. 🙂

.

Unfortunately I’ve been in a self-declared battle with  my spending habits, so after a quick tour I decided to go straight to the movie if only to avoid depleting my pockets again.  And also, I did not want so many people to see me enter the show on a solo. haha…. For safety reasons I guess. That is apart from the hope to be entertained by the next attraction and coming soon movie trailers. As for those, I got so disappointed that SM Cinemas no longer feature movie trailers. 😦 { Dear SM Cinema, Please bring back those cool and entertaining movie trailers. Thanks! } 

.

So there I was, sitting alone in a big lighted movie-house. On my left were college students who were talking to each other loudly. At their back was an old man trying to get some sleep. In front rows were lovers, 2 or 3 I guess. And since I did not want to get anyone’s attention by keenly observing on them, I stopped looking around and focused FB-ing on my mobe and started reading a book, until the movie starts.

.

I guess the hardest part was the ‘darkness’ and no one’s beside you and not knowing what’s behind you. Also, I found it difficult to laugh aloud all by myself. Other than those, everything’s cool and perfect, I wouldn’t think twice of doing it again. 😉

.

For that experience, I am a happy girl! A girl who did something in her list, conquered her fear and proven herself capable even as a solo. And I need to mention, a girl who enjoys  being all by herself as much as she enjoys being with her family, friends and lover. 🙂

.

That’s a Happy Thought Day 1: REALLY ENJOYING SOME ‘ME’ TIME!

All the best for this week,

K

Since, I was alone, I needed to take my things with me ALL THE TIME!
