One Week Alone


Recently, my roommate had to fly home out of the blue for a family emergency and although I was worried for her while she was away, I was also worried about how I was going to be as well. We live in a studio apartment, the two of us in one big apartment, and so this would be the first time that I would really be "on my own." I was nervous about coming home to an empty house, or really just spending time alone in our apartment. 

My roommate leaving was probably one of the best things that happened to me this program. It taught me a lot about life, about myself as a person, and how I handle being alone. It actually taught me that I quite enjoy being alone. This is something that I've known for a while, but never really understood until now. I never knew if I could support myself, or just be okay with being by myself in the apartment. But I learned that I can.

This time when she left, she allowed me to use her car on a day to day basis to get to work, and it was the greatest godsend ever. I was getting to work on time, and driving to get groceries, and I even got In-n-Out. After not having a car for so long, it was nice to be in a situation where I could go where I wanted, when I wanted, if I wanted. 

I liked being at home alone in our apartment because I knew if the mess was my mess. I knew if the dishes int he sinks were my dishes, and I knew that if I needed to use the restroom there wouldn't be anyone in it. It's nice to know that I am able to live on my own, if I wanted to, but I was also very glad whenever she came home as well.
