home alone time
This past weekend was pretty quiet for me social-wise.
At first I was disappointed when I found out that my friends were each going home or had to work, but then I realized it was an opportunity for me to just enjoy the limited number of weekends I have left being a college student and local resident of Newport.
The sunny weather and the chance to get some work done (or not) more than made up for my friends being out of town.
On Sunday morning specifically I got up early (getting out of bed before 8am on a Sunday is definitely classified as “early” when you’re still in college) and went out for a walk to take in what signs of spring I could.
The weather was gorgeous with bright blue skies and not a cloud in sight. Seeing flowers start to bloom and grass beginning to take on their green hues made me smile and crave for the summer weather.
The time to myself was really the perfect opportunity to just enjoy “being” and to appreciate the sights and smells and energy of the town I’ve come to call home for the past four years.
And sometimes, a little quiet time to yourself can help you realize that you’re your own best friend who will not judge you if you put your pajamas on at 5PM sharp.
What do you do when you have no “socializing” plans?
Do you ever go a weekend without seeing friends or family?
