It’s 3am, and you’re still awake. You’re lying in your bed, staring at the ceiling, when out of the darkness of your room, you hear a thud. Your heart jumps into your throat – you try to explain it away, but at this time of night, rational explanations are hard to come by. You look around, trying to find the source of the noise, but you can’t see a thing. You hear something else – could that be footsteps? Maybe it’s your terrified mind playing tricks on you, but that sure did sound like footsteps. Out of the corner of your eye, you think you catch a glimpse of movement, but when you turn to look, there’s nothing there. You’ve got chills running down your spine, and you can’t help but feel like something’s watching you in your bed.

Astronomy has always been an interest of mine (I know, I’m a nerd), and I’ve always wondered what the universe is like outside our solar system. Are we alone here? Is there intelligent life outside our planet?

The other day, I was lying in bed when I decided that I had to go to the bathroom. I reluctantly got up and started walking that direction, but before I even made it out my bedroom door and into to the hallway, I realized that without thinking about it, I had already taken my pants off. You probably could have gone without hearing that little anecdote, but it really got me thinking: a lot has changed in the few months that I’ve been living alone.

I’m so conditioned to living alone that I remove articles of my clothing while walking through the apartment without so much as a second thought – half the time without even consciously realizing that I’m doing it (you’ll think twice about barging in unannounced now, eh Maintenance Guy?). Of all the changes I’ve had to make since moving in here, I consider that one a change for the better (you may disagree with me here), but it started me thinking about all the positive and negative changes I’ve made since moving out on my own.

If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s people who complain all the time. You know who I’m talking about: those folks who never have anything positive to say about anything, but feel the need to chime in at any given time about how terrible their lives are. Odds are you know at least a few of these people. You might even be one, for all I know. But every time I hear one of these people talk, this is all I see:

WAAAAHHHH!

The last few years in politics have been extremely polarizing. We’ve got Republicans and Democrats at each other’s throats, each party trying their best to discredit the other. Long-term friendships have ended, feuds have begun, and our country has been divided over political issues in a way that this country has rarely seen. Now, I live in an area that leans very strongly toward the right, so I may catch some flak for this, but I cannot and will not ever consider myself a Republican.
