Living Alone

For the past 10 years, with the exception of about 18 months around 2008, I have lived alone. 

The best thing about it is that I can literally just run around naked, cook and dance around in my underwear, and I don't have to think about it. When I'm alone, my house is a pants-free zone.

The worst thing about living alone ... is that I'm alone! I  love when my place is filled with people. But after they leave, it's soo quiet. 

Having the freedom to do whatever I want, play the music I like and watch whatever I want is nice. I really like having 'me' space. But I also love having someone/people over for dinner and having someone to watch TV with and just hang out with.

Some days I am too content being alone. I could stay at home all day. I have to MAKE myself go socialize. But at the same time, there are many days when I am climbing the walls because I am bored and want someone to hang out with and/or to get out of the house.

Living alone has given me confidence and independence...and also made me realize that being alone is not always my favorite. What's the balance though?

All the places I've lived since I got my own apartment...
