Spending time alone

Having alone time is very important to me. I am somewhat of an introvert so I definitely need to recharge if I was interacting with people all day. There are several ways that I like to spend my alone time.

Going to the mall

I have no problem going to the mall by myself. There’s actually a cute little mall near my apartment and I love going there. It has most of my favorite stores and it’s really a chill atmosphere. Usually when I’m in there I do overspend, but that’s a different story.


I like to paint. One day I went to Michael’s and there was a sale on canvases. I had to take advantage of that. I also purchased some paints and when I got home I made a couple of masterpieces. It calms me and I feel like I’m in another world when I’m painting.


I like to curl up in my bed and write. Sometimes I write in my notebook other times I whip out the laptop and get to work. My favorite is when I’m not dealing with writer’s block.

Social Media Surfing

It’s not good, but I can sit by myself for hours and scroll Twitter and Instagram. My feeds are pretty awesome and there is never a dull moment on either. So why not spend my time that way.


There is no better feeling that curling up in bed with your favorite read and some tea or wine. Hello! This is probably my favorite thing to do when I’m alone.
