7 Pros of Living on Your Own after College ...


Graduating college and thinking about life after school can be very scary, but there are several pros of living on your own. I’ve had this idea in my head since freshman year of college: that I would graduate and then move back in with my parents because it would me help save money, I could still get fed home cooked meals, and I wouldn’t need to necessarily be a "responsible adult" just yet. Life doesn’t always go the way we plan, so I ended up doing the opposite and moved out. I’ve been living on my own since July, and now I’m here to share some pros of living on your own!

I went to the cafeteria for meals, always had professors there to guide me, and was still told how and when to do things. One of the greatest pros of living on your own is having time to learn about your passions and your dreams and figuring out what needs to be tweaked/changed/improved in order to successfully transform yourself into a new you!
