Sona's Blog

Life has become very busy. This space is for me to share my experiences, ramblings and quirkiness with anyone who cares to read them. I'd love to hear your thoughts, especially if you're someone I used to talk to a lot but have lost touch with. Enjoy!

Flyin' Solo

I went to see a movie by myself the other day. What an amazing experience - I'd like to do it more often. I'd actually like to do a lot of activities by myself more often. Benefits of going to a movie on your own:
1)You can park wherever you want without anyone pointing out parking spots as you're driving past them. And you can park on the top level without having to worry about whether anyone else will mind.
2)If you get there early or late you dont have to ask anyone if they mind catching another show, or what they prefer
3) You can sit wherever you want - just plop down.
4) You can watch the previews uninterrupted if you feel like. Or play with your cell phone if you don't feel like it. No unnecessary whispering.
5) You dont have to ask anyone what they thought of the movie right after its over. And you don't have to answer that question right when the movie is over.
6) You don't have to stay through the credits if you don't want to
7) You don't have to wait for anyone to go to the bathroom, or feel a sense of urgency cuz someone is waiting if you do have to go to the bathroom.

I give going to the movies alone two thumbs up.

And I've officially queered the blog with my dumb jokes.

hahahahhahahahah....i loved this blog. i felt like i could relate to it, because i also enjoy going to the movies by myself. its interesting because theres such a social construct that says that "going to the movies by yourself is wrong or weird", but the people who follow this convention have no idea what joys could come from seeing a movie by yourself, or doing other things alone.
i found it really interesting and humorous the specific things you found enjoyable about going by yourself. hooray for people learning about themselves, the real them.

I like going to concerts by myself, because if the band sucks I can go home any time I want.
