All By Myseeeeeaaaaalf, Don't Wanna Be...

 

A lot of the time I am the only person who understands me. So I do spend a lot of time to myself, always busy with mental projects…be it reading, writing or on this site reading and writing.  Spending time on here and putting my trains of thought onto a permanent track has been a pretty interesting experience. Where before I was aware of how regularly I changed my mind, now I can see that I hold certain values endlessly. By writing my opinions out and reading it in later mind-sets I have given myself a better idea of who I am and what I really want from life. I have been forced to ask myself serious questions about my own intellectual honesty, I have been forced to change my mind and question my motivations. I have done this alone, but with this website and the great people that compose it.

I get twitchy if a day goes by where I do not get the time to live in my own headspace. Sometimes if I’m writing my novel it feels like I’m alone…but then my flat mate might but in and break the spell. Being alone is important for me, this is why I value night-time, when I have whole rooms to myself.
I work best alone, when I’m in company my attention is too spread out.

Its nice to see someone else embrace aloness. Most people call it loneliness, as if its a terrible thing! My mac doesn't even consider aloness as a word!!! humph!! >.>

time with only myself is crucial. I will go crazy if I don't get enough solitary time daily. I've found a way to get it even when I'm with people: daydreaming.
