My week of living alone (told with the aid of emojis)

I always thought I’d be really content πŸ™‚ happy πŸ˜ƒ ecstatic πŸ˜† living on my own. 🏑

They say I’m an introvert πŸ™ƒ so being alone is actually my preference. I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with that. I get some of my best ideas πŸ’‘when I’m alone. (Most of which come right before I sleep πŸ˜΄πŸ›Œ or in the shower🚿.)

To be honest, human contact 🀝 is actually way down ⬇️ on my list πŸ“œ of requirements. Most people irritate me 😀 So the only things I really require (other than the standard of food πŸ•πŸŸoxygen 🌬 and wifiπŸ“±) are a pen πŸ–‹ and some wordsπŸ“. (And cake. πŸŽ‚ Always cake. πŸŽ‚ Cake is bae. *🍰)

So when I knew I was having a week alone, I wasn’t worried. πŸ˜‡

I thought I can starfish in the bed. β­οΈπŸ›Œ(perfect in this recent heatwave πŸ”₯β˜€οΈπŸŒ‘πŸ˜“)

Walk around in my smalls πŸ‘™ (again, perfect in this recent heatwave πŸ”₯β˜€οΈπŸŒ‘πŸ˜“)

Eat cereal for dinner without judgement. 🀀

Sing loudly without being told to shut up πŸŽΆπŸ™„

And have blissful silence πŸ”• when I need it πŸ€“πŸ“

I did all of those things.

(The cereal one was boss! 🀀😎)

But at the same time…

I actually had scary thoughts when I was alone. 😨 Scary axe murder thoughts. πŸ˜±πŸ‘ΉπŸ”ͺ☠️

If there was a strange noise I was like 😐

And I kept thinking, if the spiders succeed in their plot to take over the world I won’t be saved – I’ll just be eaten by spiders πŸ˜°πŸ˜«πŸ•·

When I left the washing up, it was just left πŸ½πŸ™„

There was nobody to make me a drink β˜•οΈ (I’m SO dehydrated right now πŸͺ🌡)

And nobody to dance with me in the bathroom πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•Ί

Even the bananas 🍌 let me down ☹️ (it’s basically like the rainforest here, so instead of staying yellow πŸ’› they’ve ripened at warp speed and gone yack 🀒)

And right before bed – when I usually rabbit on 🐰 sing my songs 🎡 and just generally be awesome annoying – I’ve been alone πŸ˜• (although alone like a starfish ⭐️)

It means I’ve had to resort to scrolling through the emojis 😜😝🀣 (while being a starfish ⭐️)

And as much as it’s been ace ♠️ being a starfish ⭐️….

I’ve really missed bae. 

(This is person bae, not cake bae.)

(Although cake is still bae*. I love you cake bae. πŸŽ‚β€οΈπŸ˜)

* I can’t take credit for the cake is bae thing.  It came from someone ten times more awesome than me. She is here. 🍟😊
