Yesterday I went to see the movie Julie & Julia by myself. It was the first time I saw a movie by myself. Normally I won’t see a movie unless I have someone or a group of friends to go with. I don’t know why but I always associated seeing a movie alone in theaters as a bad thing. If no one I knew wanted to see the same movie I would just wait until it came to video to watch it. Not this time. I wanted to see the movie about a blogger who became a writer who had her book made into a movie, so I went by myself in the middle of the day when I had a break in my schedule.
Great decision on my part as the movie turned out to be quite enjoyable. Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are both adorable and wonderful actresses. I completely related to the slightly-older-than-me (30) character who never finishes things and is looking for just a little something more (I’m sure many of us would relate in one way or another). Watching her blogging journey unfold as she mastered the Julia Child inspired art of French cooking inspired me and further validated my decision to learn how to cook, though with a lot less butter involved on my part.
The movie also made me want to complete a project, deadlines and all, like Julie did. But I would have to question my ability to finish it. I’ve never been good at doing anything every day, which is one of the many reasons why I get so easily derailed on a consistently healthy lifestyle.
I do recommend the movie to anyone that loves cooking, blogging, or the moment when people truly find themselves. If you are thinking the movie sounds super serious – don’t. I found myself laughing quite often during the movie.
Also happened yesterday: my roommate sat in the remaining lawn chair in his apartment only to have it break as well. Hahah. So today I’m getting the replacement chairs so we can have places to sit when we are both in the living room. I might also take one of my chairs from my mom’s house over there so I can sit somewhere besides his one real chair. Although I find it funny he broke the other chair I refuse to use them anymore. I see no need to put myself in the situation where I will have to buy another chair.
