Miss Independent...

Or not. I realized tonight that I am not very independent when it comes to being alone. I hate hate hate it. I try really hard not to use that word but I can honestly say that I really do hate being alone. Some people find it soothing or relaxing. "It's nice to just be away from everyone" they say. "It gives me my ME time." "I enjoy it." I say nay.  I do not agree with any of this. I got a taste of this so called "me" time tonight and I did not enjoy it one bit.

Here's the scoop. I am in Vegas for some extra training to add to my awesome Banker skills. I am in Vegas alone. Without Shane. He couldn't get work off so I accomplished a few firsts tonight. I drove in Vegas for the first time ever, I checked into a hotel alone for the first time ever, and here is the best part...I ate alone in a restaurant for the first time ever. I wasn't a big fan of any of the above, however, I am least fond of the that last little portion.

So I have decided that I am officially a grown up now. Mostly because I ate alone in a sit down restaurant. I also ordered an appetizer. No, not as my an appetizer. I'm not thaaaat grown up I guess. It seems like doing things alone is something that comes with getting older. I don't think it's a bad thing that I don't like doing some things alone, but I also don't think it is a bad thing that people enjoy it. Just a personal preference.

What do you prefer? I would love to hear where you guys like to go when you go out alone!


  1. The only time I like alone time is at my own house. I am not a fan of being alone while out of my comfort zone. I am proud of you!! It will definitely make you appreciate Shane more, but also make you feel more confident.

  2. Um i hate being alone. Even when my boys are gone at their dads I feel lost. Lol But it's always nice to have that time for yourself and be an independent person. Like Miki said it will make you appreciate Shane more and definitely make you a stronger, independent and confident beautiful girl.

  3. Why am I just now reading this?! Some bloggy friend I am! I will say, the only thing I could think of when I was reading this was the episode of FRIENDS when Rachel eats alone at a restaurant for the first time, and then loves it, and then blows everyone off so she can eat alone, and then had to break-up with herself because she loved eating alone too much! Haha! Wowza....that was a long sentence! Please say you watch Friends?! Otherwise, you won't get any of my jokes. But alas, I am a loner. I ell-oh-vee-eee being alone!!!! I probably should break up with myself. But break-ups are too hard on the heart. Loner it is.


I love your comments, they just so happen to make my day! So PLEASE by all means comment away!
