I currently have one lovely roommate, but we both work a lot and are busy young ladies so we usually only see each other in the evenings and on weekends. We are often two ships passing in the night.
Soon I will have 3 roommates, so one of my biggest problems will be solved: dancing on my own.
Now this is not the cool, devil may care, dancing on my own that Robyn sings of. I’m not sad that my some guy I like is kissing another girl at the club. I’m dancing on my own in my room, in socks, a la Risky Business (wearing pants though…sometimes).
I’m not a good dance by any means, but just really get a kick out of turning up the jams and jumping around. Dancing alone gives you a chance to try moves that you would be too embarrassed to do in public, but which are super fun to do (ie the sprinkler, mashed potato, etc). I usually do this when I’m getting ready to go out, or on Fridays when I get home from work. These are times of hopeful expectancy, looking forward to what could happen.
When I told my future roomies about my solo dance parties they laughed and decided to make it a house rule that no one is allowed to dance alone if others are present in the apartment. Hopefully we’ll have a good speaker system and can really pump it up.
Here are few of the songs on my “dance” playlist, for your enjoyment/for you to trying dancing alone to:
