When I was in my 20’s, I spent a few years living on my own, then it was just me and my plants in a 710 square foot cottage by the beach, then looking back, I really paid way too much to live in that house, however it was totally worth it. I could leave my laundry out on the couch for afternoons and nobody would say a word. I would stay up late painting and drinking wine and playing loud music, but the best part of all was setting the air conditioner to whatever temperature I wanted. I prefer to have a legitimately cold home and living alone, that was what I had. I would keep it set to 68 or lower all afternoon, everyday. I am a sizzling sleeper, and in the winter season months, I did not have to worry about someone wanting to put the heating system on in the middle of the night. When it got too cold, I would just grab another blanket. It was the best! There was one certainly freezing winter season that I remember being able to feel the draft in my study room and thinking “a central boiler would be great right now”! Other than that, I will typically cherish those afternoons of living on my own and setting my thermostat to whatever I wanted. I suppose it is important to have that time in your life where you are in charge of it all and find out what you absolutely like in life.
