It's OK To Be A Loner

I'm a bit of a loner, but that's fine with me.

Socially Awkward. Loner. Homebody. Just some of the words that people seem to start to notice about me when they get to know me a little better. Back then it used to bother me that I'm not like any other girls. But, I value being alone or better yet staying at home rather than going out a lot. Don't get me wrong I have friends and I love them all to death, but I like to keep my circle tight at all times and I value my "me" time. And if you can relate you'll know exactly what I'm talking about:

1. Social Gatherings.

Whether it be a family event or any type of social events can be a good thing for us or a bad thing. I know for a fact that when I get a little overwhelmed, you'll see me retreat in my little space to just collect myself. I mean don't me wrong I love to have fun but sometimes enough is enough.

2. Getting roasted.

I guess you can say that I'm a little boring from time to time. And sometimes my friends will roast me about it and that's OK... I'm completely fine with how I am.

3. Netflix is your baby.

At this point in time, I'm running out of shows to binge watch on Netflix and it's the legit struggle.

4. My major motivates me to be a home buddy.

Being a nursing major is hard. From back to back exams and quizzes, it makes going out or doing anything such a struggle because you have that anxiety inside of you that you just NEED to get your stuff done.


I mean who doesn't like sleep?

6. Counting on myself.

If there's anything I learned more about my loner personality, is that at the end of the day you can only count on yourself. I'm sure there are other people that you also count on but they also have things they have to do and a life to live. So gotta learn how to count on yourself.

7. I have friends.

Just because I prefer to do my own thing and being a "loner", doesn't mean that I'm totally anti-social and I hate everyone. I care a whole lot about my friends, family, and even people I may not know that well.

So if you're just like me, don't feel bad. Embrace who you really are and own it!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
