I'm linking up with Ashley and Neely for this week's Sunday Social! I missed last week, so I'm glad to be back!
1. What is one movie you are terrified to watch?
I don't do scary movies AT ALL. They terrify me. I can hardly watch the previews - the images just stick with me, I'm such a baby. The most recent scary movie preview that freaked me out was for Mama. So creepy!!
2. What is one TV show you have always wanted to get into but haven't yet?
It seems like everyone lately has been raving about Downton Abbey, but I've never seen it. I've already decided that one of my summer activities will be to watch it all on Netflix. Also, a lot of my students have told me that I should start watching Big Bang Theory, so maybe I'll check that one out this summer, too! I don't want to start any new shows while school is still in session, since I think it will be too much distraction on top of the shows that I already am keeping up with!
3. What is one daring activity on your bucket list?
I just scrolled through my 101 in 1001 list and there is nothing daring on there... I am starting to slowly realize that I am boring. Or maybe I've just already done all of the cool stuff that I've always wanted to do. My husband and I have talked about hiking the John Muir Trail, which is a pretty big adventure! Hopefully someday we will make that happen.
4. Would you ever travel alone?
I did travel alone for two years after college when I worked as a consultant for my sorority - I traveled all over the United States and Canada visiting college chapters. I don't know if I would ever go on a vacation alone, though, or travel internationally by myself. I would consider it if it was part of a group thing where I was meeting up with people I didn't know before (like a guided tour), but I don't think I would ever be able to backpack around Europe by myself like some people do.
5. What activities do you like to do alone?
I prefer to shop alone - I feel like I am imposing on the other person if I take a while trying on clothes when I'm with someone else (unless it's my sister or very best friends, or my mom or MIL). I am pretty independent and am happy to do just about anything alone - when I traveled for Theta I got very comfortable being by myself, but still doing the things that I like to do. When you have a husband in the Army, it's also good to know how to be by yourself and still have fun. Obviously it's more fun to have friends to go out with if that's possible, though!
When I was living alone in Cleveland for work, before I got married, I decided that the only two things that would be too awkward to do solo are an amusement park and a fondue restaurant. Everything else is fair game, though! I've gone to restaurants, movies, and even a play by myself.
Don't forget to link up with me and Jenn tomorrow for 5 for Five - set five goals for the week and share them with all of Blogland. It will hold you more accountable and help you to be more productive!
