The Benefits Of Living In Your Own Apartment
Many people go from living with their parents to having roommates to living with significant others. However, there is a lot to be said for ditching the roomies and finding a place on your own. Here are a few benefits of living in your own apartment.
No longer will you have to designate who gets which shelf in the fridge. After all, who gets the crisper and the egg nook? Not to mention the nights you come home from work looking for your leftover burrito only to find it mysteriously gone from the premises. Stock your kitchen with food you want, placed wherever you want it, knowing it will still be there when you want it.
If you are a clean freak, you can keep the standards of cleanliness in your home at the highest bar you wish without someone else creating and leaving messes around your home. If you’re more of slob, you can leave your clothes strewn across the living room at will without the nuisance of constant nagging from your Type A roomie.
No longer does your vintage Marilyn Manson poster have to be relegated to your bedroom. When you live alone you gain the freedom of decorating -- or not decorating -- however you want. Splash your favorite colors on the wall (with land lord approval, of course), pin up a few posters, or create a fantastic arrangement from the marigolds you picked out of the cranky neighbor on the corner’s yard, displaying it proudly on the dining room table. As for the bathroom, you just go ahead and pick out whatever type of little shaped soaps your heart desires.
Whether you are a night owl or an early bird, you can set your schedule with peace of mind knowing no one else will be offended at the times you choose to clank around in the kitchen or other communal areas. If you want to eat pizza at 2 a.m. in front of a B-movie on the living room sofa, so be it. You can also have guests come and go without having to consider another’s sleep or work schedule. You also eliminate others interrupting your sleep with their habits and visitors.
It might be nice having someone with whom you can split a few of those bills, but being responsible for the entire payment means you get more control over what is paid out. You choose the cable and Internet packages; you choose the temperature of the apartment; you have control over whether lights are left on or doors and windows are left open. You also know the bills will get paid and you won’t be surprised with a sudden loss of power.
Living with others means you have constant company but the solitude afforded you by living in your own apartment can allow you to make choices that are more beneficial to your life.
