Living on your own: My experience so far

I’ve been gone from the blog for a little while, which is all of because of the topic of this blog. Moving out and starting university took up a lot of time, but now things are starting to settle down I will have more time again.

I’ve only really lived on my own for a couple of weeks, regardless I’ve run into a lot of things that I found worth sharing. So stay tuned and find out what it’s like to live on your own for the very first time.

You’re going to be a lot more aware of the mess you make

I don’t know about you, but my mom used to clean up the kitchen all the time, so usually, I wouldn’t bother to. Now that I have to clean up everything myself each drop I spill is one too many. I am continually realizing that I am the only one who is going to clean stuff up, so you’re going to be more careful, trust me.

Living on your own costs a lot of time

It’s obvious that living on your own is expensive compared to living with your parents, everyone knows that, but it also costs a lot of extra time. I knew that it would cost me some time, but I didn’t expect it to cost this much time. You’ll have to clean, do your laundry, do groceries and cook (just kidding I never cook). All of this will slowly add up to cost more time than you anticipated.

You won’t be alone, like ever

Many people are scared to move out because they will be alone since they are not surrounded by family anymore, but trust me you won’t. If you’re going to university you will have to fight for your alone time. I’ve never spent as much time with people as I have the past few weeks so I wouldn’t worry about that too much if I were you.

You’re in full control of everything

My mom never gave me many rules anyhow, so I have to admit that the difference wasn’t that big. But getting to determine absolutely everything is still a lot of fun. A couple of examples are that you’ll only have the food you love, you get to come home as late as you want to and you’re in full control of your schedule.

Now I would love to know, do you already live on your own or are you trying to? Have you experienced anything remarkable or do you have any tips? Please let me know!
