Thanks, Day Four

Today I am thankful for living alone (and being able to afford to live alone). There are a lot of reasons for this, but right now it’s my main focus because I’ve procured a lovely head cold the day before I start my new job, and I like being able to mope, fall asleep on the couch, and be weird without anyone else around. And no, the cat doesn’t count. The last time I lived alone was in college, and I honestly didn’t love it — I’m not sure I was ready for it back then, despite how much I love being independent. Now, it’s been a return to enjoying all the things I love on my own time and not being accountable to anyone.  I can recognize when I want to be alone, when I need to reach out to people, and I just have learned more about myself in general. Sometimes it’s lonely, but most of the time it’s awesome. And I don’t pay for heat. So really, that’s all that matters. And getting rid of this dumb cold.

One thought on “Thanks, Day Four

  1. I’ve never lived on my own, but I think I’d have really liked it. Then again, it would probably have spoiled me for life, so maybe it’s better that I didn’t.
