Alone time

So, I don't live alone. Never have. HOWEVER, I found many things on this list (32 Embarrassing Things You Do When You Live Alone) to be true of me when I am alone for an extended period of time. Whether it's several hours or weeks, I will certainly acquire some of these habits! I picked some of my personal favorites to share with you ;)

4. Realizing how many meals can be successfully eaten in bed, and not considering the repercussions until you are literally sleeping on a pile of crumbs.

6. Having brief existential crises over how lazy one person can actually get, because it seems like the toe-grabbing thing must be near the top of that category.

9. Beyond just singing in the shower, conducting full-scale operas while washing up with multiple voices, rich instrumentals, and out-of-nowhere guitar solos.

10. Dancing seductively in front of the mirror at length and marveling about how eminently bangable you are.

12. Crying for basically no other reason than it feels really sweet to cry, or maybe you saw something really moving and emotional and profound, like a Snuggle commercial.

13. Getting drunk by yourself whilst browsing the internet and laughing maniacally at your computer screen.

15. Rearranging things in your apartment because you feel that you could always have things placed in a slightly more sensical order, even though it always winds up looking exactly the same.

16. Allowing your eating schedule to become so backwards as to border on the surreal. “Oh, it’s 2:30 AM, time for breakfast! I don’t want to miss the lunch hour at 10 AM, followed by a snack-dinner that stretches on for two hours in the late afternoon.”

23. Remaining in the same pajamas for such an extended period of time that you think the fabric might actually be adhering permanently to your skin.

25. Getting into bouts of cleaning/organizing that seem to put into question your mental health.

26. Having to answer the door when you are in full “hermit” mode and have therefore not seen the business end of a brush or clean shirt in a few days.

30. Constantly thinking of all the magical things you could do with this space you have all to yourself, including painting an accent wall, none of which you ever do.

Haha guess that turned into my top 12 from somebody else's top 32 list. But seriously, I'm not sure I'd come out sane if I live alone for too long.
