I have no experience of living alone yet and the first should begin after my graduation next year. Either did my sisters since one is living with her friends, the other is still living in the school as a full-time teacher. 

Though don't have ideas about living alone, it occurs to my mind that I could stimulate it while living in the group. Here are my thoughts on basic elements of a happy individual living.


#1 backup for emergency

The same as my current situation, there should be materials preparing for accidents, including water, electricity, food, medicine, and self-protect 'weapons'.

#2 convenient healthy cooking

I'm not a fan of cooking and hardly enter into the kitchen. However, I successfully trained myself in two recipes that could be cooked in a quick but healthy way. Also, the ingredients are easy for new combinations.

#3 good sleeping

Living alone is more likely to feel unsupportive, how to end a day in the sweet dark but not fear or regret? An orange nightlight and scheduled sleeping routine are useful.

#4 more space for creating

Bed and wardrobe are the two kinds of furniture that I think give more space back to others related to creating instead of storing, such as a desk for handworks, a wall for paintings, etc.

    @5plus6 - I don't know why I like this post so much.

      @brianball - I don't know either.
      Maybe because it's a sweet expectation for the future other than complaints about current issues.
      Though those words were written down, the peace and happiness of that moment is gone with the wind.

      @5plus6 - I think it's because of I love the idea of self-sufficiency. And, even if you end up not living alone -- having that desire will make you a better person to live with. (maybe? )

      @brianball - "self-sufficiency" is a great conclusion.
      But these four items (backup, cooking, sleeping and creating) are far away from self-sufficiency because it's too "self". Connections between self and others (people or things) are unavoidable. The true self-sufficiency is the balance inside as well as outside.

      Recently, the loss of internet connection (with google) has cut off my only source of updating information and refreshing knowledge. It makes me realize that I'm not powerful enough to sit alone in a room without windows to keep forward though I'm safe, healthy and free to control my time.
