10 Great Things About Living On Your Own

Who wouldn't want a place all to themselves?

10 Great Things About Living On Your Own
Chloe Kisela

Just recently, I finally got a place to call mine – and ONLY mine. I had just gotten out of an unpleasant roommate situation, and having my own space – with no one else – brought me a huge amount of relief. A lot of college kids seem to be scared by the idea of living without a roommate, because it might not seem “normal.” I can tell you from personal experience, having your own place does not alienate you at all from others; instead, it gives you a safe place to unwind by yourself when you so choose. Honestly, I can’t find anything bad about living by myself. So, if you’re thinking about getting your own place or just wondering how someone could possibly even enjoy living alone, here are ten reasons why living on your own could be the best thing you ever do.

1. You can go to bed whenever you want...and wake up whenever you want.

2. You have a ton of space.

3. You get to control the lighting in your room.

4. You get to choose if you want it freezing cold (or burning hot).

5. You can be loud when you feel like it, and then quiet when you don't.

6. You can be weird – just because.

7. You can eat whatever you're craving without judgement.

8. You get your much needed alone time.

9. You can watch Netflix all day, every day.

10. You are free.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
