On Saturday, Nathan was gone for the day. And when I mean the day, I mean from 6:15am until 10:00pm, so allllll day. Consequently, I had the house all to myself allllll day long. This doesn’t happen very often. Before moving to Providence, we had other roommates to talk to in the kitchen and go to the grocery store with, but now, when Nate is gone, it’s just me!
I was a little at a loss for what to do, so I mostly just cleaned. I did all the laundry and washed the sheets. I emptied the dishwasher and cleaned the counter tops. In between these little chores, I skyped with lovely friends, made a grocery list and printed out some new recipes. Then I ate leftover pizza and watched Easy A until Nate came bursting through the doors, dropping promptly into bed (the man had to get up very early). I liked having the place to myself, but a little part of me missed having a third roommate, which in turn reinforced my want for a cat.
All I can say is, thank god I didn’t have to sleep in the apartment by myself. I might be twenty-two, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still a little afraid (okay really afraid) of things that go bump in the night.
Do you like being alone? How do you spend the time?
