favorite friday.

 living alone this past year has been one of my favorite life experiences so far.
not having to clean up my pile of unused outfits on weeks where there just isn't time?
picking the signature scent of my space?
watching whatever i want on tv?
hockey happiness!
but one of the unexpected parts of living alone has been the unusual feeling of being...alone.
not in a loneliness sorta sense of the word, but a literally alone sense of it.
it's definitely not a bad thing,
sometimes i feel i'm too independent for my own good,
but there are certainly saturdays at home where i look at the clock at 2pm and i haven't actually spoken a word to another person that day.

considering my social butterfly-ness, it was a bit of an adjustment at first.
you never really realize how accustomed you are to bouncing good ideas, bad ideas, stress, happiness, frustration, etc. off another person in your home until there is no one there.
case in point: 
the other morning i woke up at 5:45am
{already a bad sign, my alarm doesn't go off until 7} 
totally freaked out about something i had to do that day.
it wasn't even a big deal, just a tiny meeting.
but within 15 minutes i had fully convinced myself that it was probably all going to go to hell in a handbasket and my week would be slaughtered into ruins.
i mean, dramatic much?
but these sort of instances happen a lot when you don't have another human to talk you down from that ledge of over-reactive terror.
now, music has always been a huge way of expressing my emotions.
i was the girl growing up who constantly saved all her allowance money to buy the newest cd by her favorite pop idol.
{does the KP obsession make a tiny bit more sense now?}
 however, it has become an even bigger part of my life on the solitary home front.
when i come home from a tough day at work, i turn on an alanis song.
good date? there's a song for that.
bad date? ummm...there are a few songs for that. 
trust me.

so today's favorite friday is dedicated to a few tunes i have recently been on the uhbsessive with, for various reasons.
