I restore myself when I'm alone - Marilyn Monroe


 I finally did it!! 
I went to the movie theaters on Tuesday (10 - 4-11) by myself. It only took me till I was 30yrs old to finally be brave enough and go sit down by myself in a dark theater and I have to say it was one of the best dates I've ever had, I even treated myself to some popcorn and sweets :) 

It amazes me how hard it was for me to actually work up my nerve and make it to the theater by myself, I mean it's not like I don't go jogging or walking through Central Park by myself, I have eaten alone at little cafes and I walk by myself all the time. But as I sat in the movie theater and the lights started to dim I finally realized what the difference was? There were no cars zooming by, nobody running or walking along side, no people shoving or walking by me, it was just me by myself - of course there were a few other stragglers in the theater but with a lot of distance between us I really felt like I was there alone. Plus there was no time for me to think about anything or anyone but me, I won't lie in the beginning I felt a little bit bad, you see when I'm in the outside world my mind is racing with all sorts of things, What I have to organize? What I have to do? What I have to cook? and the list goes on and on... But as I sat in the movie theater I had no time to think about any of those things, it was time to get lost in a movie and laugh and cry and just enjoy not thinking about anything at all. It was 5 hours of mind clearing and you better believe I will be doing this again!

Now, what movies did I watch? Yes! movies, I love to go into a theater and try and watch 2 movies if I can :) I ended up watching "I don't know how she does it" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love" (my second time watching Crazy, Stupid, Love). Jessica Sarah Parker amazing again, don't miss out on this funny and cute movie. I love how they show different perspectives about being a mom, and I must say I am hands down like Jessica - plus Pierce Bronan is hot in this movie. As for Crazy, Stupid, Love it was just as amazing like the first time I saw it, it just gets me in all kinds of different ways!

So my darling friends have you girls ever been to the movie theater by yourself? If you have what did you think?

Love,
Kary xoxo

  1. I don't see movies very much cause I'm not really a movie person, but I did go see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind alone. :)

    I want to see the Sarah Jessica Parker movie--she's my fave!

  2. Oh yes! that was one of the saddest moments for me...I really wanted to escape life and reality. I had had a horrible argument with my husband and left the house for half a day...I was pregnant with Xavi I cried all through the
    movie sitting there all alone! When I went back home, we sorted things out and the next day he invited me to the movies we saw the same movie. I didn't have the guts to tell him I had watched it already...besides I really didn't enjoy it!

  8. Have you seen The Help? I'm happy to be alone anywhere. :-) But maybe if I had to be I'd feel different. Never gone to see a movie alone though.
