I remember anxiously counting down the days until I moved out of my house and into my college dorm. I was convinced my life would drastically change once I was independently living on my own. Truth be told, even though I have the freedom to do whatever I want now, I sometimes miss having rules, having someone ask me where I’m going and what time I’ll get home, and especially having a delicious home cooked Mexican dinner every night.
Although there are many aspects of living on your own, I will specifically be discussing the pros and cons of dorming. Let’s start on a positive note:
As much freedom as living away from home gives us, here are three cons you might agree with:
Living on your own means that you have the freedom to go wherever, whenever. And I have no complaints there; it’s nice being able to be your own boss and not have to answer to anyone. However, living on your own also means you don’t get to be spoiled by mamá and get to live in the comfort and privacy of your own home. All in all, dorming has its pros and cons and but it’s not an experience that lasts forever. Hang in there!
