I think the title says it all. I am a kind of person who enjoys nature and being outside, however I need my alone time and that alone time is usually spent inside.
Because I’m a city-born girl. Yes, I adore nature and I love being outside but I have my moments when my bed is simply enough.
After a phone call with my grandma yesterday, she asked what was the weather like (I am currently in the town I study in) and I told her that it was sunny. So she said the obvious: “Then what are you doing inside? Go out, enjoy the day!”
I thought about it…she was right I should’ve been outside…
I HAVE ALREADY BEEN OUTSIDE. I did my part. I went to the store and to my college. I went and had coffee with my friends. I soaked my skin in a little bit of sunshine. And it is already 15:00. I got up at 9, went out for 3 hours…
Isn’t that enough? I had enough!
I know that some people wouldn’t agree. Most people would go out when the Sun comes out and go inside when the Sun goes down. But I am not most people. I enjoy my apartment, I enjoy being inside and work on my hobbies, I enjoy listening to music or watching TV shows with my roommate. I am that kind of a person and I don’t intend to change that.
There are days when I go out at dawn and come home in the middle of the night, because I have just spent a whole day out with friends doing fun things. There are even weeks when I do that and it’s fine.
But there are days when there is Sun shining and the birds are singing and all I want to do is close the shutters and read a book or catch up with my favorite TV shows.
And I think that is okay. Some people love spending time with each other all the time, I tend to be a loner sometimes, I need to be with my own mind, with my own books, with my own ideas. I need to have order in my mind and peace within my life and sometimes I just need to get back to my daily boring/lazy routine and I know that there are people out there that agree with me.
Sometimes you can go out for adventures and sometimes your adventure begins when you open a book, even though the Sun might be shining outside.
Read with you later, Lara.
