10 Things I’ve Learned in Only One Week of Living Alone!

  1. Bye-Bye Claustrophobia! The easiest way to avoid claustrophobia when living alone is to leave the bathroom door open.
  2. Hearing someone’s alarm clock (through the walls) is not a sign that you must rush through your shower!
  3. The best meals are the ones you can eat on the floor next to the wall watching TV.
  4. Laundry still sucks.
  5. Cooking for exactly one person and no more means that all your large kitchen toys can be donated to the Church or the Office: they take up too much space and no one wants leftovers from more than 10 days ago.  Not even you.
  6. A six-pack last for days! Five or six if you’re lucky.
  7. Drinking directly out of the bottle of Trader Joe’s Tangerine Juice does not bother anyone.
  8. Garbage sorting still sucks, but at least I don’t need to get all passive aggressive about who is going to take it out.
  9. No one complains when I leave the heat off and open the windows.
  10. In most cases, bathrobes are superfluous. (Curtains are up to you.)
