Hello everyone and happy Sunday!
This was the outfit I wore to church this morning featuring a new red dress I purchased yesterday while thifting. Red is my favorite color to wear and so I just had to purchase this simple, but cute little dress. It's gotten bitterly cold here in Ohio again and started snowing. Totally stinky. Bleh, we've had such a mild winter this year and it's awful for me to complain, but in my book March ='s spring!
In yesterday's post I mentioned that I was going on a double date last night and I must say it did go well! It wasn't as awkward or scary as I thought it would be and I just tried to let loose, have fun, and be myself. We went out to eat to Applebee's, then to the movies to see Gone, and finally to Coldstone Creamery. I've got to say that Gone was an absolutely superb movie... one of the best I've seen in years! Please do go see it if you have the chance to.
While coming home from the double date though last night though I just had this odd feeling in my stomach. Although I had a perfectly fine and lovely night, I knew that it's not who I am to do stuff like this. The whole time all I could think about was going home, snuggling in my pajamas and a blanket, reading blogs, and listening to some music. I've become so accustomed to and come to quite enjoy being alone. I've been alone for so long that it doesn't hurt anymore, but has become such a part of who I am as a person. It took me years to learn how to be alone without being lonely and although I wish I could be a social person and enjoy social outings more than I do, I just can't. In my heart I just crave being alone and thinking and being my own best friend. I don't know if this way of thinking is necessarily a good or a bad thing. On one hand, I'll never feel the need to be defined by another person. On the other hand, however, what human being doesn't want long lasting, meaningful friendships? I know I do want that, but sometimes it's just easier not to try and put forth all of the effort and emotional feelings toward friendship. I just confuse myself so I don't expect you all to understand my madness. Sigh.
With much love, Lauren.
