The Lonely Chronicles: A Lonely Two Weeks

red snapper, asparagus, fresh tomatoes, and arugula anyone?

I've been lucky that the lonely chronicles has not come up again since I saw First Aid Kit in June.  E's been wonderful, and my weeks and weekends in July have been spent seeing concerts, cooking dinners, and galavanting around Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan.

But yesterday as I helped him pack his bags for his two-week vacation, it hit me:  nearly all of my very close friends are home for the month before classes start, and now he is gone too.  It's hard not feel all alone when you shut yourself in your room for the night and just think about how you have no one to talk to.

However, as I said in my original lonely chronicles post, being alone doesn't mean you're lonely.  While I'm certainly looking forward to E's return, my dad's visit, and the start of classes bringing all my wonderful friends back to the city, I'm finding good in the next ten days.

Starting with tonight.  You know what I've never done in my 20 years of existence?  Seen a movie by myself.  So tonight I'm going to grab some candy and popcorn and go see Obvious Child.  I've wanted to see it for a while, and here's my chance.

Truth be told, I don't think it'll be all that lonely.

Meet The Author

I'm Madysen, born and raised in Nebraska but now living out my dreams in New York City. I moved here to go to Columbia, but living in New York has become so much more to me. This blog is a space where I can share my experiences of reconciling my midwestern upbringing with the life I live in the city. But even bigger than that, this blog serves as a space where I can try to understand where I fit into the larger social world, where I want to go in life, and how I want to go about pursuing all of these endeavors.
