I Dunno, What Do You Want to Do?

bored

Like many, I suffer from severe indecisiveness.  This malady is made worse when having to make a decision with one or more other people while trying to decide what to do or, even harder, where to eat.  A few years ago, my father, in his travels, discovered an incredible app that completely solves the problem.  It’s called UrbanDaddy, have you heard of it?  It’s got listings for most major cities and not only recognizes which city you’re in, but also  which neighborhood you’re in– how cool is that??

All you have to do is plug in what you’re looking for (brunch, dinner, drinks, dessert), who you’re with (boyfriend, girlfriend, friends, parents, your ex, you name it) and then you get to plug in a wild card.  You can stipulate that you want karaoke, dancing, to breakup with whoever you’re with, you’re looking for a place with good beer, the list goes on.  It’s amazing.  After you input your information you just have to click go and it generates a long list of possible places that you could check out.  While it doesn’t make the decision for you, it definitely makes the process a million times easier.  Check it out he next time you’re playing the “I dunno game” and let me know what you think!

If You Haven’t Done This yet You Should

Party of 1

I’m talking about going to the movies alone. I went this weekend the night before I took off for Boston and it was really nice. I went to go see the new Tom Hanks movie (I highly recommend it).   There was this crazy moment when I first walked in to the theatre and there was absolutely no one in it. It was library-level quiet and I was hoping that I would get the theatre to myself but, alas, three other solo moviegoers crashed my private viewing.

Nonetheless, it really felt like a treat. It kind of feels like you’re taking yourself on a date except you can go in sweatpants and you don’t have to share the popcorn.  If you haven’t gone to see a movie by yourself I absolutely insist that you do. I do it pretty regularly and I enjoy it every single time. I’m a big proponent of random acts of self-care.

What do you do to show yourself a little TLC?
