Are we truly alone?

14 Thoughts You Have While Home Alone at Night
Home Alone

When we were younger, we would relish the day when mom and dad would not get us a baby sitter and we could be home alone. It was a tiny glimpse of independence, even if it was only for a few hours. The feeling became even more gratifying when we could spend the night alone. Some of us enjoy having the house to ourselves, and others prefer some company. The latter definitely applies when we are alone past sundown. Maybe it was a movie we watched, a story we read or maybe our brains just go wild when we are in a house alone. Who knows where your mind goes when you have the place to yourself.

1. Party!

Okay maybe not throwing an actual party, but you still can play your music and TV as loud as you want.

2. What am I going to eat?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F6362484434141275782126278044_giphy%2520%281%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=536&h=a6bfffb4c3a7973a471db05fc05346c8310ec0b366d01313e9c49313c6ab350d&size=980x&c=2305469374 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F6362484434141275782126278044_giphy%252520%25281%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D536%26h%3Da6bfffb4c3a7973a471db05fc05346c8310ec0b366d01313e9c49313c6ab350d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2305469374%22%7D" expand=1]

Or maybe the question should be, "What can I eat without having to cook it?"

3. What movie should I watch?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F636248446352430013-1570741580_giphy%2520%282%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=311&h=218fec70f98f3241c26b022739619832dc4de33a1c01e014c3240783afe695d2&size=980x&c=2600985671 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F636248446352430013-1570741580_giphy%252520%25282%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D311%26h%3D218fec70f98f3241c26b022739619832dc4de33a1c01e014c3240783afe695d2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2600985671%22%7D" expand=1]

Why are horror movies a popular choice?

4. What was that noise?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F6362484482419151312101034088_giphy%2520%283%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=4&h=f109df43dd4d719eef0a358d7c83e0b41c6a9c32e58279b0cbda69859607bd4b&size=980x&c=2476203297 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F6362484482419151312101034088_giphy%252520%25283%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D4%26h%3Df109df43dd4d719eef0a358d7c83e0b41c6a9c32e58279b0cbda69859607bd4b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2476203297%22%7D" expand=1]

It was just the wind, right?

5. Is it safe to use the bathroom?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F636248450723618904-1445109117_giphy%2520%284%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=784&h=5fe7af16bb396b880d6c7d23345bec0c30be11d6bba286990b8e9ad7ab73bbd4&size=980x&c=2664618329 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F636248450723618904-1445109117_giphy%252520%25284%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D784%26h%3D5fe7af16bb396b880d6c7d23345bec0c30be11d6bba286990b8e9ad7ab73bbd4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2664618329%22%7D" expand=1]

You have to go, but that hallway sure is dark.

6. What if someone breaks in while I'm showering?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F636248454589635550753482717_giphy%2520%285%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=455&h=d6e1ff0afec8da3dbee89c4fb33acde26f10f492084789ae7a4d2b8c8627f232&size=980x&c=1496735789 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F636248454589635550753482717_giphy%252520%25285%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D455%26h%3Dd6e1ff0afec8da3dbee89c4fb33acde26f10f492084789ae7a4d2b8c8627f232%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1496735789%22%7D" expand=1]

When you are naked, you are completely defenseless.

7. I heard that noise again!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F636248458425276720800335407_giphy%2520%287%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=640&h=bb8c4c3b0dc476d88be7ae650d2d431cc88e10e52791de0ed5244088c4912802&size=980x&c=3952874966 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F636248458425276720800335407_giphy%252520%25287%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D640%26h%3Dbb8c4c3b0dc476d88be7ae650d2d431cc88e10e52791de0ed5244088c4912802%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3952874966%22%7D" expand=1]

Now you are sure someone or something is in the house.

8. Food can be a weapon.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F636248459023593150-1998962738_giphy%2520%286%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=639&h=68dc2fcf9d83076e7070c84d3e5a7eeb54424bebc080af03a508c2f27ae01850&size=980x&c=3112558674 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F636248459023593150-1998962738_giphy%252520%25286%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D639%26h%3D68dc2fcf9d83076e7070c84d3e5a7eeb54424bebc080af03a508c2f27ae01850%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3112558674%22%7D" expand=1]

I can defend myself with this frozen piece of beef.

9. I'll just check to see if someone is outside... Nope I saw someone!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F6362484615288379981507538437_giphy%2520%288%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=691&h=fe02920a4f21fa04df71d0c515570ebe8ab3607083faf4071e57749eb911ead9&size=980x&c=1969550085 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F6362484615288379981507538437_giphy%252520%25288%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D691%26h%3Dfe02920a4f21fa04df71d0c515570ebe8ab3607083faf4071e57749eb911ead9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1969550085%22%7D" expand=1]

Was it your neighbor taking the garbage out at night or someone planning on breaking into your house?

10. If I run, the shadows won't get me.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F6362484643365827391821927330_homer-running-gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=819&h=6fe4c135622278eeb8959a142f1ba69f484f61b04bc91be801027790c11a13bd&size=980x&c=1722269104 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F6362484643365827391821927330_homer-running-gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D819%26h%3D6fe4c135622278eeb8959a142f1ba69f484f61b04bc91be801027790c11a13bd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1722269104%22%7D" expand=1]

You sprint down the halls to the safety of your room.

11. I should just relax and go to sleep.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F63624846887822713776753156_source.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=815&h=fcf01e77ad52ef37a98516b383f20de3803c43e1b00a981de4201ee67c37f6e9&size=980x&c=3802866621 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F63624846887822713776753156_source.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D815%26h%3Dfcf01e77ad52ef37a98516b383f20de3803c43e1b00a981de4201ee67c37f6e9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3802866621%22%7D" expand=1]

It'll be difficult, but you are going to try.

12. That was a different noise!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F636248471413679820704384182_a5e34359-e459-4b10-a73e-046f6cf57f2b.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=897&h=3aa2bd4807f868fee27f58a8edbae1cc92580e906a20e2869b1ee63e714cb274&size=980x&c=2071472132 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F636248471413679820704384182_a5e34359-e459-4b10-a73e-046f6cf57f2b.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D897%26h%3D3aa2bd4807f868fee27f58a8edbae1cc92580e906a20e2869b1ee63e714cb274%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2071472132%22%7D" expand=1]

And sleep will definitely not be returning to you anytime soon.

13. Thank God, they're home.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F11%2F6362484721027347691574643123_giphy%2520%289%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=81&h=8a867c3f0a5a8b952b72a78ca33d6669c877273f676aad3f0bead2135b39c1b3&size=980x&c=993744503 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F11%252F6362484721027347691574643123_giphy%252520%25289%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D81%26h%3D8a867c3f0a5a8b952b72a78ca33d6669c877273f676aad3f0bead2135b39c1b3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D993744503%22%7D" expand=1]

Now you can rest easy knowing your parents are home and the house is safe once again.

14. I can handle myself perfectly fine by myself.

You think knowing the cycle will repeat the next time your parents go out.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
