For almost two years, I have lived alone. Prior to that, I lived with my ex-boyfriend, a touring musician who was travelling half the year. Essentially I lived alone most of the time then too, but still cohabited with men’s clothes in my closets and a plethora of musical instruments in my living room.
But for the past couple years I have lived completely on my own, which I’m not going to lie, is absolutely wonderful. I have filled my walls with whatever “art” I found at the flea market, and overstuffed my apartment with bird paraphernalia. Because dammit, I like birds and I pay the rent!
As an only child, I have grown accustomed to a lifestyle that includes a hefty amount of ME TIME. Returning home from a long day and not having to talk to anyone is magical. Complete ownership over the DVR, fridge, closet, bathroom, and bed is unparalleled.
