I have been living on my own for six months now and I have found it to be the most greatest experience I have ever had. I was a little worried when I first went out into the world. I remember thinking to myself, “can I do this?” I was amazed to find that after the first two months its easier to get in a routine. This way you know what bills are coming when and what day you must pay them. I also found that when it comes to food, you need to carry four rules with you at all times.
1. Always bring the leftovers home.
2. Supermarket savings cards are your best friend.
3. No food is thrown away.
4. Eat it before it goes bad.
I am a firm believer that everything does happen for a reason. When I first moved into my apartment I had a serious issue with my roommate. He was always complaining and treated me like I was living for him. He told me when I could and could not have people over. This is no way for roommates to act. If you are paying for your half of the bills then you should be able to do anything you want to do. I can at least say that the roommate I am speaking about no longer lives with me. I have two roommates that so happen to be family so I have not had a issue with them at all. Sometimes they can be a little messy but so can I. Every roommate needs to find a solid ground and work up from there.
I can at least say that living on my own has been a hard experience and a good one. I have had months where I was struggling but the best part about that is that you know that you can’t struggle forever. I have months where it was easy but the one thing I have learned is to enjoy every moment and not to trade them for anything.
A lot of things have been said about men and love. It’s really easy to make fast opinions when you are a women or you have never truly been in love. I can’t speak for men everywhere but what I can say, for me, love does truly exist and I am in it. I have the butterflies in my stomach and the willingness to get out of bed. My girlfriend and I have never been happier. I have found myself going out of my way to make her happy even if it is something as small as bringing her coffee at work. I even rub her feet after a long day!
I have found that some men do not treat their women this way. I know this could be a shock to all you ladies out there but men can be real idiots. I have friends that have dated guys that just treat them like crap but they keep going back to them when they call. Why do women do that? I guess I am a hopeless romantic but I could not treat my girlfriend like that.
Ladies , the only advice I can give is to keep your head up. There are nice guys out there and they will treat you like you are a diamond. Everyone is always on their own search for love and that means men are too. They might not admit it but they are searching for Ms. Right. So just keep your heads up high and it will happen when you least expect it.
I just wanted to take some time to be thankful for the relationships I have in my life. I blessed to have a wonderful girlfriend who loves me even when times are tough. She understands me and I can’t wait to put a ring on that finger. She is my best friend and I will do anything for her. My family has always been there for me no matter what. They are my rock and I would not be here without them. My friends are always there to support me and they show everyday that they care. I have been through a lot this year and its great to have a strong support system. I love each and everyone of them. I have spent this year trying to find what the next big thing is next in my life. I guess when you are 24 years old you have to find what works for you. Life is a journey and sometimes its fun and other times its hard. That is when you need good people in your life to pull you up when you fall down.
I have never really blogged before but I have written a lot of papers about different issues in the world. I am 24 and I live in Charlotte, North Carolina. I just finished college a year ago and I can tell you I am feeling the pain of finding a job. My family and friends have always told me that I have a voice and its time mine is heard. I decided to to start this blog and talk about everything and anything that comes to my head. There will be no issue that is not safe and no one is safe from my keyboard. I will also share some of my own life experiences too. I can say that some of them will be funny and some will be sad. I just want to say thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Please leave a comments and questions and I will be glad to respond.
