A little bit ashamed

I can admit that I'm a little bit ashamed for liking the Twilight books/movies, right? You'll still love me? I'm 31 years old and I've never been a sappy, chick flick kind of chick. But there's something about the story that pulls me in and won't let go! I don't know what it is. And I know PLENTY of people out there who loved horrible movies like Titanic and Hope Floats. So that makes me feel a little better! I'm using a new journal for CTJing, I think. I'm trying it out, anyway. I LOVE my grid composition notebook CTJ but I've been working in it for three solid months and I've only JUST crossed the halfway point. And something about its size makes it seem like a bigger deal than it should be. Like if I have it on my lap during class, it's a little obtrusive. Or maybe not since it's notebook sized? Maybe I'll keep using it at school? I'm not ready to give it up, I don't think, but this is a new journal I'm enjoying playing with:

This is me with my popcorn and blue Icee when I went to see Breaking Dawn this morning alone:
(You wondered what that Twilight rant was about, didn't you??)

Only doesn't mean lonely!

I enjoy my own company. I enjoy it SO MUCH MORE than I enjoy the company of others. I can be by myself for days and days and not "miss" anyone. It's just how I am. I'm not a "lonely" person. Nor am I a "loner". I simply enjoy not having to "be" someone. Right now, I'm not a mother, a wife, a friend. I'm just that girl who hasn't showered today and is not wearing a bra under her hoodie who's sitting at the Barnes & Noble cafe alone drinking mocha frappuccino blogging after seeing a movie alone. That's it. And I'm in a GOOD mood, too. It's kind of freaky. I'll be a mother in a little while, a wife, too. I'll shower and go to school where I'll take my science final and give my friend a ride. But right now? I'm nobody. My favorite!


  1. don't fret about liking the Twilight books there Goog. I am IN LOVE with the Harry Potter books and actually got quite sad after I finished the last book cause there are no more to read!

  2. Oh, I have ZERO shame about being in love with Harry Potter

  3. I'm 59 and I loved the Twilight series books and movies. My granddaughter (17) gave me the first one to read and it was all downhill from there! I actually enjoy a lot of YA books that my granddaughter reads. The Hunger Games was another favorite series that we read in tandem. HuGGs!
