21 Things to Do Alone

This post is inspired by this wonderful YouTube video based on the poem How to be Alone by filmaker, Andrea Dorfman, and poet/singer/songwriter, Tanya Davis.

  1. Go to the library.
  2. Bake a cake.
  3. Wash your car.
  4. Paint a picture.
  5. Read a book that makes you "ugly cry."
  6. Plan a dream/slightly unobtainable vacation including flights, hotels, and a rental car.
  7. Find a new blog to read.
  8. Look up new ways to pamper yourself.
  9. Go to a coffee shop and people watch.
  10. Take a class on knitting. (Very useful for a zombie apocalypse.) 
  11. Make a huge experimental dinner using only your favorite foods.
  12. Have a marathon watching only cheesy reality shows.
  13. Take an obscenely long nap.
  14. Go through a drive through and order way too much food.
  15. Organize your living space the way you want it.
  16. Fix something you broke, but didn't tell anyone about.
  17. Write a review on something you love.
  18. Create your bucket list.
  19. Make a scrapbook of things that inspire you.
  20. Go to a shooting range (Also, very useful for a zombie apocalypse.)

I know how some days being by yourself can feel like a huge handicap, but I also know what it's like to own being by yourself and making the best of it. This is for anyone who finds themselves alone. For the long time novices at being by yourself, those alone for a short period of time while your loved one is away, or the champions of being independent. This one is for you.

The reason I took up blogging was to make new friends and share my stories. I would love to hear what you have to say.
