    All Alone In My Home Where The Buffalo Roam

    One of the things about living alone is that nobody bothers you, and yes it does get lonely sometimes but that's just the way I like it. I don't have to leave the toilet seat down or have to put the cap back on the toothpaste or even put on clothes because I just like to walk...

    I'll Finally Be Alone

    I've lost count of how many places I've lived in. I've been overseas twice already; once for 10 months, and the other for a whole 2 years. I've had so many room mates, flat mates and house mates that I can't even remember all their names. Now that I'm back home, I'll finally be...

    Language Barrier

    I love living alone... I guess in this forum it goes without saying!! But moving abroad to a country where I don't know anyone and I don't speak the language has taken the "alone" thing to a whole new level. I've gone from being out every night with really...

    It's the Best.

    When I live alone, I feel like my home is my sanctuary. My personal zen garden. I feel like my private home is an extension of my physical body. I feel like it loves me and heals me. I have a spiritual connection with my house. I don't like people to be in here with me most of...
