Throwback Thursday: Living Alone

[In a couple months, my lease will up and I have to decide if I want to extend it or move. It's making me remember all the reasons I love living alone, so I figured this #ThrowbackThursday would be appropriate. MY POPTARTS ARE MINE.]

So, as we’ve discussed, I found a new apartment and am moving out next month. Yaaaay!! What are some things I’m looking forward to? Let’s see:

1. Not dealing with this on Saturday morning:




Yes, I went back to bed. But, seriously? No. Call a cab.

2. Not finding empty boxes of food in my cabinets.



Seriously, I’ve given up on having any kind of yummy snacks in my cabinets until I move. It’s not worth the anger stroke I experience when I look for them and they’re gone.

3. Not having this happen at 3am:



I finally got out of bed and opened the front door and saw this:



I’m not even saying she’s the worst roommate in the world or anything, because in a lot of ways she’s fine. I think we’re friends, technically. But she’s a college student and HOLY SHIT DO I WANT TO BE LEFT THE HELL ALONE.

Whew. Only another few weeks until the move. But I’m sure you guys all have tons of bad roommate stories, right?

  1. The worst roommates are the ones you have to divorce!

    You got me laughing again...thanks.

  2. This is the exact reason why I never had a roommate. Ever. Not just the food thing and the drunk thing, but I like being able to play loud music whenever I want. Or not wearing pants. You can't do that with a roommate. Or at least I hope you can't...

  3. Oh god.... Yes! This is why I'm so glad to be living alone now.

  4. Living alone is truly a glorious thing. I never get judged for not wearing pants. Or for talking to myself.

  5. I don't think I would survive living with a roommate. I would be so angry all the time. Luckily, TriGuy and I usually stumble home late together, or just drink at home. Gotta watch out for the dog though. Sometimes she likes to party and eat all our food.
    I hope that even if you don't renew your lease you don't have to find a roommate in your new place.
