My new happy place

It’s been a surprisingly beneficial thing, living alone.

I can come and go as I please.  I can do home workouts without fear of someone walking in on me in the middle of an awkward-looking exercise.  I can enter my weird little essay-planning mind palace, muttering to myself pacing back and forth as I sort through ideas.  I can curl up in the darkness reading my Kindle.  When I need to be alone, I can be alone.  When I need to be with people, I can search out my friends.

My  week has been relatively light homework-wise.  That hasn’t stopped me from working ahead, but for the first time all semester, I feel relaxed and at peace.

I feel like I’m right where I need to be.  Yes, I’m still looking forward to graduation and saying goodbye to academia.  But I’m finally in a place where I can sit back and enjoy my last few months of college.

Welcome to my new happy place.

    Amelia! I *love* your room. It looks so cozy. I too have a single in Indy and I love it. I can hang out with a guest without worrying about a roommate. I can stay up late, or rise early without trouble. It’s a wonderful experience. And I totally understand what you mean when you say “my weird little essay-planning mind palace,” because I can work in complete comfort with my earbuds in.
    Enjoy your new abode!
