Along with the fantastic independence that comes with living on your own, there's also so much responsibility. It's crazy!
Here's a few (fun?) things I noticed about myself after living on my own for 2 months:
*Anna and I don't have a dishwasher in our place, so I had to learn not to complain when I have to clean up my dishes.
*I used to dread doing laundry at my family's house - but I love laundry days now that I'm on my own. Maybe because I only have to worry about my clothes and not everyone else's?
*I go to bed earlier than I ever did when living with my parents. And I go to bed without watching tv, which was a tough habit to break!
*Speaking of TV - Anna & I don't have one! I make due with Instant Netflix & Hulu on my laptop & semi okay wifi connection, though.
*As much as I love baking - I've only baked one cake while here, and even then - I messed that one up!
*I can go anywhere, anytime, which is nice. Blake and I have gone to see movies at 10 pm before because I now live 5 minutes away from the theater instead of 30. so nice!
*I'm bad at grocery shopping. I'm very absent minded, and I just start picking things up off the shelves that I don't really need. &&&& HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICE OF CHEESE?! $4?! I've never bought cheese before, so I had no idea.
*I go to church more now than I did when living at home.
*I had an "I'm A Big Girl Now" Aha moment the other day while on my way to work. I had bought groceries, I bought my own gas, and am getting ready to make an insanely large purchase (more on that later..) soon. I'm such a big kid! I've been very blessed to have parents that paid for my gas every week, but now that I actually have a real job, I have started paying for it, and although I dread having to go get gas, I enjoy being able to pay for it myself.
I'm so excited for Colby to be back in Springfield! The boy has yet to see my apartment, and I can't wait to help him shop for things for his new place! The best friends will soon be reunited, and I'm STOKED! :)
So what have you been up to lately? I've just been working (and loving my job, by the way!) and hanging out with Blake (and his friends on #hipstertuesday. Haha! I'll blog about it next week, maybe!). Also thinking about making some changes to the blog to help me blog more often. Ever since moving, blogging has been a fun, side project for me, and I want to be more serious about it again. So we shall see. Have any suggestions? :)
