10: Marti Goes to Hollywood

I know it’s been a few days since you’ve heard from me but you didn’t think I forgot about the 2013 Countdown. This year is full of cliffhangers & a whole lot of smiling. You know the drill for the next 10 days we’ll work our way to what I feel is the most significant event in my life this year. Here we go!

Coming in at a strong number 10 is an unexpected entry on the list. After years of regretting going to the show for an outing, date or even a highly anticipated blockbuster, I made it in more times this year than I have in the last decade! It all began with the need to see Lincoln before the Oscars. I truly enjoyed myself and the film. Then I was asked to go to the show again and I didn’t decline by my son. We went to this very (now) popular AMC theater with reclining seats for extra comfort. I knew I was turning the tide on an entertainment forum I had rejected for a long time.

It seemed like week after week I was in the theater to see a movie. I even experienced a rarity of being the only person in a theater to watch the movie. Can you believe it I was alone with my phone on?! After a little break from the film houses I read more books but I knew I’d be back due to some interesting previews I saw.


This is a big step for me because I really don’t like the inconsiderate behavior of other movie goers, extra noise or the high price of concessions. Figuring my way around all of this helped me overcome my phobia.

Marti won’t be left behind in the film world anymore. Thanks to a little more maturity and acquired skill for getting ready to go to the show. Smile :)!
