Living alone [Mar. 29th, 2002|04:31 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

I've never lived alone.

Summary of my living situations:
Feb 1980: live with 2 others (parents)
Apr 1982: up to 3; brother ryan
Sep 1988: up to 4; brother cole
Sep 1998: down to 1; just Rode
home for summer: back to 4. ahhh.
Sep 1999: down to 1 again; Eli.
home for summer: back to 4. ahhh.
Sep 2000: 11... OMFG.
Apr 2001: down to 2; kenji and chuck
Mar 2002: back to 4. ahhhh.
Few hours ago: family left for baseball game. Inner peace!
Few minutes ago: back to 4. ahhhhh.

Next Monday: Ich werde allein wohnen. Nachdem, auch.

I just like my quiet hackin' environment. I don't really hate people. Honest! ;-P

are you going to be living alone in Dresden? I had never lived alone until just a little under a month ago. I thought I would hate it...until I lived with 6 other people and wanted to die. I wouldn't rule out having a roommate again, in fact I would like it, but I'm through with massive living situations (11!! hell no).

I actually highly recommend living alone. You can always go out and see your friends or invite them over. And then the only shit you have to deal with is your own (which can be bad enough sometimes).

This is a totally cliche commentary on living alone.

Who says you get to make the rules? Do you think you invented LiveJournal, or something?

Oh, so you're not sharing a room with anyone? Good for you. Sharing a room with someone would soo piss me off =) But then I'm spoiled.

Despite leading a mostly solitary existence, I've never lived alone either. I realized recently it's possible I never will. I think I'll go write a journal entry of my own about that now... gracias por la inspiración. :)

I'm going to take a wild guess that it was the house with four digits which had a LiveJournal shared account named after it. Do you want to try every combination of four digits on userinfo.bml? ;)

LOL Well that is better than my initial guess...which was that Brad was counting his personal computers as people! :)

14 days!

Neat, you are exactly 14 days older than I.

I am easily amused.

I've never lived alone, either. I've always been miserable living with other people, but I can't imagine living on my own for some reason. Never thought about that. Interesting. Maybe it's time to take a deep look into myself. Or something.

Once you get a taste of the living alone thing, you can NEVER go back. (Something to be warned about!)

Oh yeah, and I wanted to thank you for livejournal too! You probably feel like Steve Wozniac by now? Who'd have thought that something you tinkered together in your garage would ever turn into something so BIG?!

hmm...you said that your brother (cole) is the same age as me. in a sense, he is, but my birthday was this past saturday so i'm older than him. :) i'm sure you don't care, but oh well...

thanks for e-mailing me after you read my letter. :) i was actually surprised that you even bothered to read it... let alone read it and compliment me on something.
