Why everyone should live alone at least once
Right after college, I knew that I wanted to leave my parents' home immediately. What young, know-it-all 20-something doesn't? My bank account was super dehydrated, so I settled for a couple of roommates to help relieve the financial burden. That lasted for a smooth year and a half until deciding to shack up with my longtime boyfriend, who later became my husband. After that came the kids. So no, I've always had live-in companions
Although having people to come home to is great, the completely selfish side of me does wonder how I would have decorated (because with roommates we all had to come to a consensus) or utilized my time, because truth is, living with people can be distracting!
