Last night was my first night "alone" in a very, very long time. I am almost always either at my apartment with my fiance, visiting my family, or on a trip with either my fiance or family. Needless to say, there is not a lot of alone time in my life.
Some of you are probably thinking How do you do that? The interesting thing is that it never bothers me. We are all different, but as a (super) extrovert, I get my energy from other people. If I could, I would pack my day full of group workout classes, dates with friends, etc. I enjoy being out and about and seeing people.
So, what did I do with my night alone?
I went out. Go figure. There was a Yelp Elite event at IPO at the W City Center. I met up with Sierra and also met Maggie, so you can go ahead and put a "Check" next to "be around people" for the day. Overall, we decided the event was "good enough."

After about an hour and a half at the Yelp Elite event, I headed home. I've read a lot of articles lately (here, here, and many others I've managed to lose the links too) about how Extroverts don't typically give themselves alone time, but we still need it. So, I decided I ought to see what it's like...
Step One: I immediately popped my contacts out, put on glasses, and put on my monogrammed robe from my bachelorette party. You know you love me for having my glasses on crooked (shout out to Warby Parker) and looking like I'm on house arrest.
|Am I doing it right?|
|You... complete... me...|
|My fiance was very sweet and made the bed in his own way (babe, where the heck did you find that blue pillow?) for me.|
Step Four: Set an alarm for any time I want (5:21) and hit the gym whenever I feel ready, wearing whatever I want. Yes, I ran to the gym in 90 degrees wearing a long sleeve shirt. Yes, I peeled it off when I got there before my 6 mile run. I regret nothing.
Step Five: Make a random breakfast. Eat it while simultaneously doing your makeup and watching TV. This image pretty much sums up my morning. Many things half-assed at the same time.
