Inappropriate Conversations

Or, alternate title, THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT ASK SOMEONE WHO YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IN YEARS.

Last month, I was sitting in my chiropractor’s office when I hear someone say, “Katy?” I look up and it is a woman who I haven’t seen in maybe 10 years or so? She wasn’t even someone I knew very well. Her daughter went to school with my younger brothers. Basically, this woman is an acquaintance who I hadn’t seen in forever. ANYWAYS, I respond with the “oh hi!” that comes out when you’re not expecting to talk to someone and don’t want to have a long conversation. The first question that comes out of her mouth (I KID YOU NOT) is, “Did you get married?” The smile instantly comes off my face and I give her a short, “No.” She fumbles about seeing a ring on my finger (it was a silver ring on my right hand?) and I fake smile as I go in for my adjustment, not saying another word.

Why was this the first question? This is SO inappropriate. Why don’t people understand this? Maybe I’m the only person that feels this way, but I legit get offended when the first question out of someone’s mouth is “are you dating anybody”, or “are you seeing anyone”, or “are you married yet?”. Like having a significant other would be the most interesting thing about me. I have so many interesting things about me that I would love to talk about other than my freaking relationship status.

Just, if you see someone who you haven’t seen in a while, ask them a general “how’s life?” or “what’s new with you?” DON’T ASK ME ABOUT MY RELATIONSHIP STATUS. It makes me very angry.

Do any of you deal with this as well? LMK in the comments.

An Unexpected Journey

If I had to title my adult life, it would definitely be An Unexpected Journey [I mean, it’s a true statement, and I mean, Tolkien..].img_8495_facetune_19-05-2019-10-31-38.jpeg

You see, over the past couple of weeks I have been reflecting on the last decade of my life. I’ve been reflecting because I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary of graduating COLLEGE. Whoa. It feels like it was a completely different life, and back then, I imagined a completely different life for myself. Continue reading

Disney World – Solo Style

chipndaleFor those who don’t know me, it is a little known fact (just kidding everyone knows) that I am a bit obsessed with all things Disney. I love it so much that I decided to become a Disney World annual passholder last year. And I have totally gotten my money’s worth out of it. A couple of weeks ago, I was needing to get away so I decided to take a little trip by myself to Disney World. Now, it may be a bit weird to some people – heck it was a bit weird to most of the castmembers when I replied with “one” to the question “How many?”, but I had so much fun! There were a couple of times that I wished someone was there with me, but for the most part, I had a blast!

Here are some of the best things about going to Disney World alone:

  • Getting Through Crowds – It’s amazing how many people can fit into the Disney Parks. It’s also miserable trying to cut through them. But, when you’re alone, you can move SO MUCH FASTER. You never have to look back to see if your friends are keeping up with you. One night I went to the fireworks show at Epcot, and ended up being one of the first ones to the parking lot trams because I wspace (2)as able to weave in and out of people so quickly. It was actually fun. Ha.
  • Rides – Now, it isn’t the most enjoyable experience waiting in lines by yourself. I ended up skipping rides that had waits that were longer than 30-45 minutes. A lot of the time, castmembers will call out for “single riders” and you end up getting to skip a bunch of people to get to the front. (Also, Avatar: Flight Of Passage has a single rider line, once you get to the final waiting area.)
  • Rest – If you’ve ever been to Disney World, you know how exhausting it can be. What’s great about being there solo, is that I can go back to my hotel around 2:00 in the afternoon, rest up for a couple of hours, and go back to the parks refreshed (this is also a big perk of being a passholder) without feeling guilty that I made anyone miss out on any fun.
  • Food – This one’s pretty simple.. Food is much quicker for one person and it’s easier to find a place to sit and eat.

That’s all I have for now. Have any of you ever been to Disney by yourself? Would this be something you would ever consider? Let me know in the comments!

Random Blather

I haven’t posted in a  hot minute, so I figured I would take this opportunity to rant for a a wee second.

So I know three people who are younger than me who all have just gotten married…for the second time. Most of me is like “oh my gosh I’m so glad I’m not on my second marriage at this age”. But the petty bit of me is like “how come they get two go’s at the whole marriage thing and I haven’t even had one go at it yet?!”

Now, I know I am being completely unreasonable and I don’t even know these people that well (anymore), but there it is. 463ec9054828f5acd98030653a2980c5

Anyways, just thought I’d share my random silly thought process. And I am definitely happy that I’m still single and not on a second marriage.

Single’s Awareness Day

Here we are again, another year, another Valentine’s Day, another reason to roll your eyes.giphy

Call me a cynic, but I am so over Valentine’s Day. The last time I had a romantic V-Day, was in 2010. I used to be a romantic, heck, maybe I still am a little bit, but I’ve been dumped on V-Day and I’ve been sorely disappointed on V-day.

Past Katy would have been all “why oh why am I still single?!”. Current Katy is “life is good and I am going to be awesome and single.” 

So, here we are at another one, and gosh darn-it, I am going to have a fabulous day. Why is it going to be fabulous? Well, because I am spending it with my best friend. We will watch the Hobbit and drink wine and eat lots of food and chocolate. It’s great having a best friend to be your standing date. She’s got my back and I don’t even have to wear makeup.

So here’s to you, single ladies. Don’t stress out about not having someone on the “most romantic day of the year”. q8y5v_s-200x150Just ignore it or do something fun with your girlfriend(s). And hit up the chocolate sales on February 15th.
