The Pros And Cons Of Living With Your Best Friend
Start writing a post

Best friends are great. It’s like you find a person who acts and thinks just like you and you can do all sorts of fun, cool stuff with them. And some point in your relationship with this person you’re probably going to consider moving in together because every tv show ever has made that seem like the optimal situation for your life. But before you go ahead and make that choice, let me give you fair warning, it’s NOT FOR EVERYONE. Some friendships end because people cannot live together that close for that long. Here are some pros and cons to living with your ultimate bff.

Pro: Live in therapist

What’s better than someone who listens to your problems and gives you advice right when you need it

Con: You’re constantly together

No really, it’s like they never leave. What is privacy anymore?

Pro: Spontaneous parties

Got a new job? Aced an exam? Managed to get out of bed and shower today? All the more reason to celebrate. *Party Rock Anthem plays in the distance*

Con:You learn all their annoying gross habits

Would it kill you to put the seat down or clean your hair out of the drain every once in awhile?

Pro: Never go alone/ someone to come home with

Even if you’re going to the store, you’ve got a never failing buddy system by your side.

Con: Fights are 10000000x more awkward

Saying “I hate you” is slightly more intense when you only have opposite sides of the room to retreat to.

Pro: Binge viewing partners

For those nights you feel the sudden need to re-watch all 12 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy

Con: Money situations are never the same

What if your roommate wants to go out to dinner but your bank account says eat ramen tonight?

Con: Commitment v conflict

Is it worth fighting over and ruining such a solid friendship? Can we handle conflict in a healthy way?

Pro: No matter how hard your day, you come home to your favorite person

It’s like being married but without the terrible debt

All in all, honesty is normally te best policy when it comes to best friends. And despite all the cons of living with them, the pros tend to heavily outweigh. I live with my best friend and I wouldn’t trade the movie nights, dance parties or stupid arguments for the world.

Sometimes I Prefer The World A Bit Blurry

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months.
