Back AGAIN, I See... DAY 1!!!!

Hey friends!!

I have been living a life of splendor in Anaheim, and I seem to have forgotten that I had created a blog that was meant to keep you all entertained since we all know how much everyone LOVES hearing about ME!

To get back in the groove of blogging... why is it that when I hear the word "blogging" I start singing "a blog a blog a blog a blog" to the tune of "a potter a potter a potter." ANYWAY... To get back into the groove of blogging I'm going to do some 30 Day Challenge thing.

Ready? Set? GO!

Day 1 - Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is.

I am single and extremely content! I don't date, at all. Ever. I basically suck at relationships and I don't have interest in the whole dating/relationship thing. Relationships are great and all, I'm sure.

I'm a walking contradiction, or so I have been told. I am a socialite who prefers loner status. Meaning: I CAN be social, I CAN be fun and outgoing.... but I prefer to be alone and to be left alone.

Example: A group of girls I work with met up for dinner and were insistent that I join them... huh OK. I went out, had a GREAT time with them and made some great friends/connections. The next night, they met up again and tried to insist I join them - because I'm just SSSOOOO FUN! This time, I did not join. Nope. Instead, I stayed at home, curled up with my favorite quilt, did some knitting and watched Love Actually. Guess which night was more fun? BOTH were equally fun, but I prefer the night I was alone and got to do my own thing and be alone. Like I said... I CAN be social. I just prefer to be a loner.

I don't want you to think that I'm someone who is lonely or something. I, genuinely, honestly and truthfully LOVE to be alone!

Disneyland -- ALONE and SMILES

My roommate, Lexi, is a very much like me. Which is why we get along so well. We respect the others' space and leave each other alone. We can also sit in the living room, eating pizza together and watching a movie without constantly chatting at each other. SO pleasant.

Some people get freaked out being home alone or they get lonely with no one to talk to or do things with. Not me, AT ALL! I have NEVER experienced a time where I felt "lonely" or something like that. Hell, I go to Disneyland by myself and I PREFER it that way. I have gone to movies and out to dinner by myself and never blinked at the idea that it was weird.

ALONE again -- See, I'm fierce

I was a junior in high school and I think the new Spider Man movie was in the $1.50 theater and I really wanted to see it... so I went. It was AWESOME! I know people who swear that they would NEVER see a movie by themselves or anything of the sort.

I think it comes from being overly independent, and a crippling desire to not want someone around all the time. This part of my personality is definitely a blessing, but it's also a curse... well I haven't found the down side, yet, but I'm sure it exists!

I get to do what I want, be where I want, and enjoy my life! I love my job, and I have a great time with my friends. Not that relationships are some sort of trap where you can't do what you want or anything... see what I mean by sucking at this? I just mean that I've never done well with someone checking in on me all the time, or taking me into consideration for their plans, or being expected to take someone else into consideration in my planning. Maybe, someday, I'll desire to have someone join me at the $1.50 movies or silently read next to me... but for now, I'm content and very happy to be on my own and left to my own devices.

I'm sure that someone exists who would compliment my personality and preferences, but that would require being social and going out to meet people... oh and heaven forbid *gulp* DATING. Gag. Nope, I will stick to my way of doing things!


OK... new theory as to why I'm alone all the time... I go to Disneyland WAY too much, by myself, and clearly, I repeat outfits. Shoot... Maybe it's time to re-evaluate
.... NAH!
