To me, I'm never alone when I have all my 'white hat' friends.

As I prepared myself for, this St Valentine's I will be alone, and most probably lonely. I have loose plans to see a friend but that could all fall through. If it does I'll be in the cinema in my white hat saying goodbye to the couples and hello to the people sitting there all alone. I hope I find a friend.

Any time I get upset with my boyfriend, or feel unloved, I always find myself coming to your site. There's something about the fact that people can come together, and just accept each other for who they are, no strings attached. It gives me hope when I've lost all faith in humanity. Perhaps there is love in this world, we just have to look in the unexpected places.

Love to all,

:::Happy Valentines Day all. -Becky :)

Recently, my boyfriend (of 1 year and ex of 3 months) and i got back togther. Nothing feels the same anymore. He no longer acts the same and he never treats me the same. I do not have a white hat, but I do have an orange one. I might go to the movies with my friends tomorro night. Maybe I'll see another white hatter, it sure would make me feel better about this world.

Look for me TriCities Cinemas. I'll be the one with the oranga hat.

The last movie I saw in theaters before tonight was Happy Feet over Thanksgiving weekend. Since then, I've been busy with school, going home for the holidays and now more school. Last week I was a bit sick with a cold and when Saturday rolled around I slept for about 15 hours! I didn't get up until about 6 pm that day. When I did, I was still feeling sick but I wanted to go see Pan's Labyrinth. I pulled out my phone, called my friends up and it turns out they were just getting OUT of the movie!!! They all forgot to call me. I was thinking of going alone but I was sick, a bit scared, and my mood had just been killed because I was completely forgotten. I talked to one of my other friends and she hadn't seen the movie either, but she lives out of town. We made plans to meet up at a midpoint to see it, but it wasn't playing anywhere near there. We decided that it was best if she came here and spent the weekend in town. Tonight we finally went to see Pan's Labyrinth. We ran into some school friends who were just getting out of the movie and we talked to them for a bit. Then we went to watch the movie and had a great time!! I didn't see any White Hatters, but the place was pretty empty. I hope the next time I can get around to the movies I see a white hat!

I've been following the White Hatters since they began. During winter break, I went to about five different movies and wore my white hat proudly. However, since the beginning of spring semester at my university, I've had nothing but an overwhelming amount of work and very little time to do anything at all--let alone go to the movies.
Last night I decided to finally put aside some time and go out by myself. I bought a ticket for "Because I Said So" and sat in the middle section. I was there for about 5 minutes thinking about the White Hate People when a lady sat to my left. During one of the previews, a girl came by and asked if the seat to my right was being saved. The lady to my left shrugged and said that she was there alone and I nodded in agreement. I found it completely strange that when I went to the theaters to get away from my busy schooling and just spend a night alone, that I had happened to be sitting between two people who were alone as well. We exchanged reasons as to why we were alone and watched the movie in a comfortable silence.

This is to the lady with the two sons that left her alone for "The Messengers" and to the girl whose friends went out of town. Although, we didn't exchange names, thank you for your company.

I HAVE A WHITE HAT!! I’ll be wearing it to school today, and everyday, so I hope one day to find another white hatter. Hey, Fuzzy Hat, if you could wear yours like once a week, maybe on Wednesdays only (unless you abide strictly to the No White in Winter rule) then maybe we’ll find out we go to the same school! Okay, gotta go to school now. But see ya soon!

I've been reading the white hat blog since it started up because I thought it was such a great idea, but I'm not much of a movie person. I hadn't gone to a movie in six or seven months. Well, Friday night I went to see Stranger than Fiction with my boyfriend. I wore the same white winter hat I have had for a few years and didn't think much of it. Once we sat down I suddenly remembered the white hat people and looked around. I didn't see a single white hat. I thought, "Oh well" and just watched the movie. At the end of the movie, my boyfriend and I were just waiting for most of the people to clear out before we left and just laughing about the movie when suddenly, I realize, the man that was sitting in front of me was looking at me and smiling. Usually when a man about twice my age looks at me in such a way I would find it to be very uncomfortable. However, not this time; I looked at him and smile back. He was not wearing a white hat but I felt this stranger and I had something it common. This was both very exciting and comforting. Maybe he knows nothing about the WHP and was just a creep but I choose to think the reason he looked at me that way was because we were both in on a little secret.

Its odd that i ended up on the site for the gazillionth time. I like reading the posts and had always hoped that I wouldn't have a story to share that would be sad.

But I was wrong.

On Sunday, January 28, 2007, my friend I've known since I was six, was killed in a car accident. He was 16. I had just gone to see Epic Movie and had come home and was making cupcakes (my birthday was monday, the 29th) when I found out from my other friend. I began crying and had to literally call other people to find out if it was true. And it still feels like a lie. So my best friend came over and went into to take over mode. She finished everything I was doing and made me sit and talked to me and let me cry. We made the decision that I should go to the movies with her. ANd we went and saw Epic movie. again. And I was sitting in the theater thinking about my friend and without thinking I looked for a white hat, any white hat. It was completely random but was something I did.

I had been feeling alone and only had my best friend with me and at that moment when I looked around the theater I no longer felt alone.

Thank you for being a good distraction for a little while.


Cameron Lee, We love and Miss You and you will not be forgotten.

I’ve been feeling really down lately as I generally feel like I have no friends and all of my old ones hate me (probably just because they are high school boys :P) And I read a few of the stories about people meeting their old friends or friends-thurned-more, and I was reminded that sometimes magical things do happen. And I’m willing to wait just a little while longer to come back. And I have resolved myself that I am buying a white hat. So that every day, I can wake up feeling happy and excited that maybe something amazing will happen—I’ve really needed something to feel like I can live for lately, and I think this might just give me that hope that’s necessary to keep going through the emotional storm. It’s truly amazing to hear thousands of stories from people you’ve never met about fantastic things that happen to them. A reminder that for it’s faults, good things happen, and there’s enough of them to believe that maybe one of them will come my way again, that life could get better.

Due to my work and school schedule, I have been busy every Saturday night. I am going to the movies with my best friend and a girl who used to be our best friend in high school. It has the potential to be VERY awkward. I am going to wear my white hat. It gives me confidence. Maybe I'll be able to re-break the ice with her.
