Today I’m here to talk to you about a very important practice: Living by yourself. Now I don’t know what age you are, if you’re 18+ I would definitely say try living by yourself, even if it’s just house sitting for your grandparents whilst they’re away, or even if your parents go away and you want to stay home. Do this for a good two to five days. If you’re under 18 then start by making your own dinners, or keeping your room tidy for longer than two hours (I still struggle with this mind you, and I’m 22).
Why? Put it this way, one day you’re going to wake up and realise you’re old enough to buy a house or move out, especially if you plan on going to uni this is so important, and you’re going to fancy something really nice, like pasta. Then you’re going to go to the fridge, and realise, you don’t know how to make pasta.
Naturally my example is about food, but even still. There’s just certain things that you don’t realise you’re parents or adult of the house do, that you’re going to need to do when you have your own place. Whether it’s uni or a house of your own, you’re going to need to do certain tasks that you wouldn’t have thought of before now. Yeah, they’re small things, but they are things that build up that if you don’t do you’ll know about it.
Plus it’s pretty good to spend some time by yourself. Personally I love just having a house to myself so I can just get on and write, or edit, or plan some future blogs and vlogs, without any distractions. However I know some people who absolutely hate spending time by themselves because they have no idea what to do, and end up craving people to talk to and hating being by themselves. Being alone doesn’t have to be boring, it’s good and healthy to find out more about yourself and learn what you could do if you have free time.
So go forth bromigo’s, go out there and learn more about yourself, learn how to do something you’ve never done before, and practice being by yourself.
Until next time, catch ya later x.
