Why You Should Live Alone at Least Once in Your Life

Advantages Of Living Alone
Noah SIlliman

Living alone isn't an easy decision to make. You have to weigh the pros and cons of living alone. Here are some of the advantages of living alone:

Peace and Quiet

This is one of the major advantages of living alone. You don't have to worry if someone has the TV or music too loud. You can sit in your apartment and enjoy the peace and quiet, since the rest of your life is chaotic.


You get to decorate your apartment how you want to. You don't have to worry about the god awful decor your roommates bring because it's just you. You want to paint your walls yellow? Go ahead! You want to opt for minimalism? Who is stopping you?

Total Control

You have total control of your life and your apartment. You can live how you want whether it be hoarding everything, or being a neat freak. Your life is in your hands. Live how you want, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.


Living alone is the ultimate independence. You have no one to help with bills or groceries. It's just you. Life gets hectic sometimes, and you have to figure out a way to cope with it. It teaches you how to deal with things without the help of someone else.

Finding Yourself

Living alone teaches you who you are after you leave everyone else. You are able to really find yourself and figure out what makes you happy and what makes you mad. You don't have anyone to come home to. You can be yourself completely.

Living alone has many advantages, but it also has disadvantages. It can get lonely and boring, but you will learn how to cope with that. When a person decides to live alone, it can be the most exciting decision of their life.

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.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


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

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
