Perks of Living Alone

Perks of Living Alone


For about a two years now, I’ve been living on my own. To tell you the truth, it was exciting and scary at the same time, but I know it’s time for me to fly away from the nest and be more independent.

In the short time that I’ve been living on my own, I found out that there are so many perks to living on your own!

  • Living alone gives you a great deal of freedom. You feel like you have your own wings to fly anywhere. You have a choice on how you want your home to look like, and no one will judge you if the colors mismatch!


  • You can have conversations with yourself without nobody overhearing or judging you. Admit it. You do this! Whether you’re in front of the mirror, or just lying in bed, you have tried to talk aloud. You tell yourself stuff that you won’t dare tell anyone else. This leads to a lot of self-discovery. I have experienced a lot of epiphany during these self conversations.


  • Your food is yours alone. Yes, sharing is caring sexy. but… You can place whatever chocolate you have in the fridge and they will stay there! Plus, you can drink straight from the milk carton. Woot!


  • When I need a good cry, I can just ugly cry by myself. Sometimes there are days when you just need to let it all out. Now, I am not sad or have a lonely life, it’s just sometimes, too much stress can kill you, so I just let it all out!


  • You can prance around in your underwear. The moment I enter my house, I take off my work clothes, and prance around in my underwear. It’s very liberating, you know? You can also sleep naked!


  • Nobody will judge me when I am listening to K-Pop. Okay, well I love these cute boys, GOT7. Here’s their awesome music video for their comeback song, Just Right. 

But really, living alone is healthy for you. You learn to love yourself more. There’s definitely much more appreciation with what you have in your life. You get a sense of responsibility that you’ve never had before. Yes, there are so many bills to be paid, and sometimes it gets lonely, especially when you’re sick and home alone, but having your own space makes you a stronger person in my opinion. Plus, when it also made me love my family more. It gives me time to miss them, so when I see them during the weekend, it makes the reunion much sweeter. #


  1. Living alone indeed has a lot of perks. I’m planning to live alone once I graduate in college. I don’t know why but I’d always loved to be independent. 😀 Still can’t help but miss my parents by then, though! 🙂

  2. There are people who loves independence. I hope you get to realize your plans to live alone once you graduate. Good luck!
