1. You can walk around naked.


2. Everything becomes your responsibility.


Trust me, this is a good thing. It means you're not relying on anyone else. Everything that happens happens because of you.

3. You can have music as loud as you want.


4. What's clean stays clean.


But be careful, because what's dirty also stays dirty!

5. You can go to the bathroom and leave the door open.

6. Same goes for showers.

7. You can cook whatever you want.

No allergies that aren't yours. No smells that you're fine with but someone else doesn't like.

8. You can spend more time with yourself.


9. You get to decorate *everything*.


10. When you bring a date home it's not weird.


11. You can change things around.


This bedroom is now a study, and the study is now a bedroom. I can do this because it is my house.

12. No one is eating your food.

13. Or using your shampoo.

20. There's never a wait to use anything.


21. And you don't have to share a bathroom.

This is very, very important.
