As this college year wraps up, my first year of living in an apartment is coming to a close. These were my top five takeaways from living on my own!
1. The toilet paper and paper towels do not restock themselves
When you live at home, there is always another roll because your parents take control. When you live on your own, if you don't check the supply, YOU WILL RUN OUT! We live in luxury as a youngin!
2. Food shopping is expensive
Even if you are only getting a few things, it adds up! Coupons are your friend! Always ask the cashier to swipe a rewards card for you to get the discounts!
3. It's fun having your own rules
We are all used to the saying, "under my house, my rules." Well, in my apartment, it is my rules! It is nice not getting yelled at for not making your bed (;
4. Cooking is nice, but cleaning after is the worst
It is really nice cooking for yourself because you can make healthy and yummy meals! The worst part is as soon as you are done enjoying your delicious meal, you see the stack of pots and pans you have to clean. Depending on how many utensils and pans you used, it can take up a lot of time!!
5. Living with your best friends is the best thing ever
I have never had so much fun in my life. There is nothing better than having your best friends around you 24/7. From running to each other's rooms, to birthday parties, to sitting on the couch watching hours of impractical jokers, it was amazing. We had so much fun this year and made memories that will last a lifetime!
