I’m Just a Girl Who Can’t Say No

During the school year, I’m always teaching, planning, grading, or exhausted due to all the teaching, planning, and grading. When I’m invited to do something, my answer is usually no – especially if it means I’m going to be outside of my comfort zone. This is not a pattern I wish to continue when I’m in Ecuador – or when I return to Boston! So I’ve decided that I am not going to turn down any invitations for the rest of the summer…if I can help it.

Today was my first test. When I asked my friend Laura if she wanted to see a movie, she asked if I wanted to go to New Hampshire and see a movie at Chunky’s with her friend, Katie. I didn’t know what Chunky’s was, I’ve never been to New Hampshire, and I don’t know Katie that well so this was the perfect test of my new policy.

It was a blast. We ended up seeing two movies in two different towns. I got to see a little bit of New Hampshire. And I had fun hanging with someone new.

Who knows what will happen now that I’m just a girl who can’t say no?!

P.S. If you can figure out the significance of the title of this post, you are fab!
