After being on vacation last week, my family has returned! In honor of returning to a seven person household, I've created a list of pros and cons of living alone. Have any to add in?
-You can go to the bathroom with the door open. It really saves a lot of time.
-The house stays clean longer (assuming you clean it).
-You can walk around in your underwear. Please make sure to close the windows, though.
- Random plants can start growing in the sink. This really happened!! If you have a house full of people, I'm pretty sure this doesn't occur.
- Ice cream! You can eat ice cream all the time with no one to judge you.
- You can change the thermostat like crazy. For example: I turn the air conditioner down to 77. I freeze. I turn it back up to 80. I am hot. Back down to 77. REPEAT.
-It is acceptable to sing as loud as you want. Crazy dancing included. (Who am I kidding, I do this whether I am alone or not!)
-You are alone.
-If you get locked out, there is no one to unlock the door.
-The house stays dirty (assuming you don't clean it).
-If you walk outside and the back deck collapses, causing you to fall to your death, there is no one there. Yes, these are the strange things I contemplate. Beware that walking onto the back deck is risky when living alone.
-You have to cook for yourself. Or not. I usually go with the "or not" option and eat lots of sandwiches and macaroni and cheese. I also understand why people joke about college students eating Top Ramen. This is not a joke, people. Real food is EXPENSIVE.
- There is no one to fix the sewing machine when it breaks. Which happens quite a lot. Seriously, if cars were like sewing machines, we'd all be dead.
-All plumbing issues go unresolved.
-Did I mention, you are alone?
