What I Learned about Myself in a Month

Hello!  Today, I am proud to say that I have been living by myself for a whole month!  Hooray!  I haven’t died yet, or maybe I did and my ghost is writing this.

But during this month I came to realize some things about myself.  Things that I had assumed but didn’t fully come to know until now.

1. I actually don’t mind cooking.

I know!  I have always said that I don’t like to cook.  But, I think that I didn’t like to cook because I was afraid of people judging how I was cooking.  And so if I did something wrong or burned something, I would be humiliated.  But now that I live alone, no one can judge me!  So I actually don’t mind cooking for myself.

2. My bed is my favorite place to sit.

In all actuality, I am sitting on my bed typing out this blog.  Funny right?  I think I enjoy it so much because I am still not used to living by myself and don’t have to keep to my room.  I could go sit on the couch, but I have found myself happier sitting in my bedroom and watching YouTube on my laptop rather than on the TV.  I’m sure that I will move more toward the couch as I live here longer, but for now my bed is my favorite.

3. I can expand on my love of glitter because the apartment is all mine!

I have never been able to decorate the whole house since I have always moved in with people.  So now that I had the chance to decorate with my stuff, I have gone a little glitter crazy!  My blingy pictures are hung up and there is tons of pink sparkly items.  Huzzah!

4. I blame all random noises on my cats.

Yep…I mean…I think everyone does this at least once.  But I hear something fall over or something that I can’t see be moved…it’s definitely Target or Amelia, not the ghost.  Am I the only one who does this?

5. I have used all of my possible weapons as decoration.

Okay so maybe I like decorating a little too much, but I realized I have nothing to protect myself in an easy spot.  My frying pans are all hidden away in cupboards and my knitting needles are hid away in the corner.  My trusty heavy candlesticks…covered with mason jars and flowers.  Yep…maybe I need to redecorate.

6.  I absolutely love being by myself.

I was very skeptical about living alone, but I have realized that it is perfect for me.  I don’t have to worry about being considerate to anyone else in the house and I could walk around naked if I wanted.

No…I don’t do that.  Never have, never will.

But in all seriousness, I love being by myself.  It is scary at night sometimes knowing that I will be alone and my cats probably won’t protect me.  But I still like it.
