house sitting

I am currently house sitting for a friend and it has given me the chance to be on my own again... the problem with this is that I again remember all of those things that I need to work on to be a better live-alone person. (You though you only needed to learn how to live with others but I think you need to have skills to live alone.)

exhibit a. I learned this evening that I really need to learn how to cook amazing food. Tonight I tried to make mac and cheese and I almost ruined it. I added way to much milk. One would think that after living by myself I would be a pro at making mac and cheese but I am not. But man can I make a mad bowl of cereal or hot chocolate or taco soup.

exhibit b. Some nights I get so wrapped up in a book that I forget what time it is and stay up way to late... This needs to be improved upon because I still have to go to work in the morning. Note to self set alarm that tells me to go to bed.

exhibit c. Although I like animals I'm not really a have-an-animal person. Although it is nice to come home to something I feel bad that I am gone and that they are home all alone while I am at work. Mom does remind me that at least I come home at night otherwise they would be home all by themselves always. Her logic makes me feel better.

exhibit d. I don't like bugs, rodents, or dead animals. No I have not seen any while I have been here but I still dont like them. Just a few months ago I tried to convince my dad to come over to my house to pick up the dead rabbit that the dog drug in. He refused and made me pick it up myself...(not that I blame him. I think it was about 12:30am and he was in bed asleep. but still.)

I'm sure that there are more examples but I haven't thought of them yet. more exhibits to come.
