10 Signs You're a Homebody

10 Signs You're a Homebody

Netflix and Postmates is all I need in life.


A homebody, according to Webster's dictionary is a person who likes to stay at home, and right next to that definition you will find a picture of moi. See, I'm a homebody. I enjoy the simple things in life, like the warmth of my bed, freshly delivered Postmates, and a new Netflix show to binge watch. And if you relate to any of the following, you're probably a homebody too!

Delivery is your best friend


The less things I have to leave my house for, the better. I thrive in my own environment (aka my bedroom). Therefore, Postmates, DoorDash, and Uber Eats are my best friend. Unfortunately, they aren't exactly my bank account's best friend.

You love it when someone cancels


The moment you make plans, you instantly regret. You pray and hope that the other person will decide to cancel. When you finally receive the cancellation text, you rejoice because you're night is about to get so lit. All night Netflix binge, let's go.

Netflix is the only one that asks you if you're okay


It's been about 8 hours since you left your bed, and probably 24 hours since you've had any human contact besides the delivery person. Then, you realize the familiar buzz of Netflix in the background has disappeared. You look up from your phone, only to see the most heart warming message you've seen in days: "Are you still there". Yes, Netflix, baby - I'm still here.

You're always ready to go home


Anytime you somehow to convince yourself to go out, you instantly regret it. You find yourself waiting for someone to say they're ready to go home. And, like always, you're the one that always goes home first.

You only leave your house to go to work and the store


If I didn't need food or a house, nobody would ever see me. The most social interaction I get in a day is at work, or at the grocery store. At this point, more people at Publix probably know my name than people I actually have class with.

All your selfies are taken in your house


Basically, an intruder could make a map of my apartment based on my Instagram feed because all my selfies are just various poses in different areas of my house.

You forget what day it is


When you never leave your house. you realize time, day and night, those are all constructs. They aren't real. So when you asked me what day it is, I probably don't know.

You're in bed by 9pm


You might not go to sleep until 12am, but best believe I am showered and in bed by 9pm. Bet.

You make plans weeks in advance


...so you have enough time to convince yourself to go because you've canceled 3x already, and would still like to keep some real friends, not just watch 'Friends'.

When you only love your bed and your momma


I've never related more closely to a Drake lyric than I did to this one. It's very true, I really only love my bed and my momma. I'm sorry.

In the end, it's okay to be a homebody, just don't forget that an outside world still exist, and it's not always horrible.

10 Pieces Of Advice From My Parents That Have Helped Me Survive This Thing Called Life

I don't like admitting that they're right, but they've helped me through more than they'll ever know.


As I've entered my 20s and have made it halfway through college, I've learned that life can be hard and challenging at times. Like many kids, when I was growing up, I could care less about what my parent's advice or opinions were. Nine times out of ten, I would do the complete opposite of what they said. Once I got older and actually started listening to their advice and put it into perceptive, I learned that they're right more often than I'd like to admit.

1. Don't take things for granted

I've learned to cherish what I have because I might not always have it. It's easy to take life itself and many things it involves for granted. They've taught me to take a step back from this crazy life sometimes and be grateful for all that I have.

2. Don't be afraid to put your heart on your sleeve


My parents have taught me that if you feel something, don't be afraid to say it or embrace it. If you love someone, then tell them. Don't be afraid to put your heart out there just because you might get hurt.

3. Be vulnerable

In life, in relationships, in your work. Take risks, get shot down, and then try again. Being vulnerable is scary yet so powerful.

4. You can never have too many shoes


Otherwise known as it's okay to treat yourself. Life is hard, so take care of you. If that means going on a shopping spree every once in a while, then so be it.

5. You're going to be okay

Whatever it is you're going through, you're going through it and you're going to come out on the other side. It may seem horrible now, but you'll learn from it and be okay in the end.

6. You have to have friends in life


It's important to have people to lean on, especially on your bad days, and to celebrate with on your good ones. You can't just have you or a significant other to rely on.

7. Never be afraid to share your opinion

Don't be afraid to put your thoughts and opinions out there because they might be wrong. They could have a huge impact on someone or something.

8. Don't stress over things you have no control over

don't stress

Everyone is on their own path, which means everything will work out the way it's supposed to, even if it doesn't make sense right now. Again, you're going to be okay.

9. Happy, healthy, wealthy, wise


My dad always says if you tell yourself every day that you're happy with yourself or your life, you're healthy and strong, you're wealthy in love and surrounded by great people, and you're knowledgable or wise, then you can achieve anything in life.

10.  S*** or get off the pot

My all-time favorite piece of advice. Making decisions can be hard and scary, especially if the outcome could be getting hurt in the end. So, you either make a decision and roll with it no matter the outcome or you walk away.

Thanks, mom and dad for always being a phone call away when I need it! Just know that your advice and words of wisdom don't go unnoticed. For others, your parents have been on this planet much longer than you have and most likely experienced the same situations that you're dealing with. They don't have all the answers, but they are there to help.
