    Howls From The Hills

    Yeah on some days I need my alone time from the world and everything in it. I'm not always like that but most of the time I am, I just like being away from everybody and their BS. Sometimes I just sit in the dark and listen to some good music while sipping on some cold beer, I...

    I Spend A Lot Of Time Alone

    It's just easier. I don't have to deal with other people or their opinions of me. When I'm alone, I don't need permission to do anything or to have irrelevant conversations about nothing I care about. I don't like people and I don't like living with them, either.

    My Time For Escape

    I am usually doing multiple things at once. Texting, chatting, reading, writing, working, helping out my mom, taking care of my responsibilities, etc. Sometimes I just need a break to do one thing at a time and be care free unapologetically :) There is not a more freeing feeling...

    Alone But Not Lonely

    My alone time is very important to me. Especially after an evening with dinner or overnight guests. I like to have people around but lately a whole lot seem suffocating. To some I may appear antisocial when I escape to our front veranda for solace and fresh air when I'm cooking...
