Living Single

I am now the only single author of this blog (Megan's getting married, did you hear?), and I felt the need to write about it.

Turns out the internets want to teach me how to live life as a single girl. I keep coming across these lists detailing things that MUST be done while I'm single. Is the universe not-so-subtly trying to tell me that I should hunker down for a long, single winter? Thanks, Universe. I hate you.

I think most of the things on this list work just as well for someone who is not single, but whatever, you get what you get.

"Wallow in the ache of a broken heart" is not necessarily something I would like to aim to accomplish in my life, although I'm pretty lucky because I've done it twice already! Go me!

The advice to "develop a hobby" is well meaning, but could go horribly wrong. The internet has taught me this, and I trust the internet implicitly.

"Learn how to take care of yourself" and "be completely, utterly, wholly single for at least three months" are actually great bits of advice that I have used quite often when talking to friends. A lot of problems can be resolved or avoided when you know how to cook a meal or fix a toilet or wash your own clothes. Also, it's difficult to be yourself in a relationship if you don't really know who you are outside of a relationship.

So thanks, Internet, now I can live my single life to its fullest. What would I do without you?

but yeah, google pretty much solves all my problems.

I would definitely travel if I was single and didn't have as many responsiblities as I do now! I would take art classes, photography classes, etc. I would take Yoga classes and Pilates classes. The list goes on! But I'm married with kiddos so I make the best of the situation I'm in. If I where single I would make the best of that situation too. Life is what you make it. I have to remind myself of that daily. :)

Perfect timing.

I like that getting drunk during the day is equal to a santa claus convention...

Thanks for sharing these links. :)
