Living Alone, Conquering the Unknown

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions…

It wasn’t unintentional but we missed nights 3, 4, and 5. I didn’t really feel like there was anything that was truely conquered on those nights so there isn’t anything to catch up on. It was all just come home, make dinner, finish a Take 5 puzzle book and go to bed. But night 6, last night, was a bit of a different story.


I spent the day with Mum down at Caloundra, just hanging out and then headed over to chill out with Abbey and Max. I drove home, came inside, turned on the radio, had a dance around and a glass of wine, and then made a reallllllllllllllyy delicious dinner (I’ll have to write it down because I feel as though it checked all of the food group boxes). I sat down to a brand new Take5 magazine and watched a little bit of TV, all before a show about an American man who supposedly killed his wife came on…This wasn’t a made up Law & Order or Criminal Minds either, this was a real life LEGIT story. I wasn’t paying much attention but I was listening and glancing up every now and then.

So I did a little more of my puzzle book, went to bed and then I freaked out. “Someone is in here trying to kill me” was really the only thing going through my head. I could hear heaps of noises, animals outside, cars driving past that sounded a lot closer than they were. I was freaking out so bad that I called my little sister, Heidi (and although I felt really bad about calling her at midnight, she had probably been asleep since 7pm) to calm my nerves while I walked around the house, turning on lights, opening doors and locking myself in my grandparents bedroom. There obviously was nothing to be worried about, everything was locked before I even started cooking dinner. In short, I was losing my shit over nothing.

But, there is a moral to my story. Know that even when you are trying to conquer something really adult, like living alone, you can always give someone a call to help you out. Just because you left to be on your own, doesn’t mean you are on your own. (Wow, super deep Aliceeeeee)

We’ll see how tonight goes. I’ll probably put on ABC for Kids or something a little tamer, while I do my granny puzzles.
