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.

Decorating

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.

Independence

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.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.
