For the first time in my life I am living by myself, and I have to say, I have mixed opinions on it (though mostly nice at this point). I was able to find a decent one bedroom apartment that's only about 5 minutes from my brother's place and a 20 minute commute to work. Right now, the apartment is a little depressing inside because I couldn't book movers until next weekend to get all my furniture and boxes from their temporary storage, so right now I have an air mattress, a lamp, and some clothes. I will say that buying adult-type things like appliances and cleaning supplies and groceries actually made me excited. I know it will wear off, but for now it makes me feel accomplished.
On the note of having a new apartment though, it means I have a new address and I don't know about you, but I love snail mail, so if anyone is interested in being penpals, message me about it. There's something nice about getting letters, even in this age of instant communication.
