#3 Go to the cinema alone
Yes, be that freak who scoffs popcorn all alone in the shadiest corner of the cinema. It’s initially quite daunting, especially if you foolishly decide to go in the middle of the school holidays like I did, when the cinema is packed with loving families and bubbly teens. However, once you get over the hurdle of buying a single ticket from the counter, and you go and settle down in your seat, you realise that no one even cares about the fact that you’re alone when the lights dim and the film begins to roll. You only have to worry about yourself, with no one incessantly asking you what’s happening in the movie, or leaning over to steal your popcorn.
