Reasons why I'd like to live alone

Hey. You probably know I live with my family; mother, father and occasionally brother. You also probably know I'm 21 years old. The only reason why I'm still with them is lack of money. But all things aside, here are my reasons why I'd love to live alone (in no particular order).
Note: I do realize there are good sides of living with my family, but this struck me the other day so I wanted to share it with you.
  • pampering days
I recently got interested in make-up and skin/hair care so I usually need one day a week to be alone to do all these stuff without anyone judging me for having hair or face mask on. I know it looks ridiculous, but answering the same questions every single time is getting really boring and annoying.
  • my own bathroom
As much as I'd love to have freedom in all the rooms, bathroom is something I really need to be just mine. This goes with the first thing I wrote above. I spend the normal amount of time in there, but I just need the bathroom for only myself on some days.
  • listening to music 24/7
From the moment when I walk into the apartment or wake up till the moment I go out or to sleep, I have the music on. I listen to it on the radio, TV or laptop, but there's always some music. I don't understand how my parents can't listen to music. Once they get home, music is turned off and TV, which nobody is watching if I may add, is turned on.
  • peaceful evenings
There are some evenings/nights when I just want to cuddle up in my bed and watch some TV with hot cocoa and popcorn. But I can't do it cause my TV has been acting weird lately and the main TV in the living room is only watched by my father. God forbids somebody is watching something else while he's home.
  • sleepovers
Since I can remember, I always wanted to have friends over, but I never couldn't because we have quite small apartment and there are no extra beds. Even if I could invite somebody, I can't do that to my family in their own living space.
  • decorating
How I wished I had more space to put the decor I like. Also, my parents and I don't always agree on what's pretty so we basically don't have any decoration, only the functional stuff we actually use. That's not so bad, but I'd still like some pretty stuff every here and there.
  • not having to move everything right away
I'm a neat person in general, but I have some times when I leave my jacket hanging in the hallway or my boots beside the shoe compartment. If I do so, it's because I'm planning on wearing those exact stuff again soon or I just have something I need to do right away so this would have to wait. I clean everything after myself, but it sometimes take till the evening and my mother can't wait that long.
  • neighbors
I know this problem will be with me as long as I live in an apartment building, but I seriously hate my neighbors right now. I would like to live in a house if that's possible.

Where do you live? With whom? Do you like it or have your own reasons for wanting to move out?

Today: 16.10.2016.

Doing: went to the shopping mall with my aunt, cooked some lunch, did a hair mask, gonna pamper myself and get my nails done - I'm preparing for another college week
Mood: pretty good actually, I'm stress free which is a miracle since I started college again
Favorite person: I haven't seen anybody today but my aunt so I'll say it's her - although she's a complete mental and physical mess
Thinking about: what I'll wear to the wedding on Saturday cause I have some stuff I could wear, but I kinda want something new, but don't have the money to be honest
Missing: my old job - cause I need the money...
Loving: the fall fashion - even though I don't like fall, I think it's the most fashionable season
Hating: that it's Monday tomorrow and all the rain
New discovery: baby oil I had for so long is actually great for nails and cuticles
Listening to: Adele - Someone like you (there's a list of 50 greatest love songs on VH1 and this was number one)

Movie review: One Day

I got a book from my cousin called One Day by David Nichols. I found out that there's also a movie based on it. Before I start, I haven't read the book so I can't compare it. It's a romantic drama starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess as lead roles.
Notes: As usual, plot has spoilers, my impressions don't. Also, this was written way before I changed my template for reviews, so...

Plot: We meet Dexter and Emma on their graduation day on the 15th of July 1988. Although they were in school together, Dexter has no memory of them ever meeting. (They've met few times...) After he offers to walk her home, they decide to spend the night together, although nothing happens. (The part I didn't like as I'm all for big romances, but it turned out good.) Also, it's super awkward in the beginning, but Emma convinces him to do something the next day. The next day is kind of a date and they kiss but remain friends. (We see this in the end of the movie.) They continue to have a great friendship through years. (I loved their friendship so so much!!) We see Emma working at a fast food restaurant the job she hates. She wanted to change the world and she really loved writing. Dexter never shows ambition for some high education; he wants to find himself and have fun. In the 1992, Emma and Dex go on a trip together and, although Emma had some rules, they break them all and flirt. Emma got her hopes up, but it turns out Dex is not being that serious. (If you ask me, I think he just got scared.) Soon, Ian comes to work with Emma and they start a weird friendship that will eventually become a serious relationship. (I disliked this guy from the moment he entered.) Meanwhile, Dexter is a huge TV star, but he finds out people hate him so he gets depressed, starts doing drugs and slowly ruin his life. Also, his mom is seriously sick and will die eventually in the movie. In 1996, Emma is living with Ian. She meets with Dex and finally says she loves him, but she doesn't like him anymore as he has changed a lot. (This was a really sad scene to me.) We also see that neither Emma is happy with Ian, nor is Dex happy with his girlfriend Sylvie. They are reunited at a friend's wedding. On the contrary of what's written two sentences ago, Dex and Sylvie are getting married. In the following years, they get a baby, but we see Sylvie cheating on Dexter in the very next scene. (Yeah...) They are again reunited in 2003 and Emma is now dating Jean-Piere in Paris. As Dexter decides to leave Emma to live her life, she runs for him and they finally confess the feelings for each other. (Finally!) In 2004, Dex is rehearsing his wedding vows. In 2006 you see them kinda nervous for not being pregnant yet, but decide to work things out at the dinner. On the way to the restaurant, Emma is hit by a van and dies immediately. (I kinda knew something was going to happen, but I was so surprised I jumped off my seat.) Later on, we only see Dex remembering her and showing his daughter places where he went with Emma. The movie ends in 2011.

My impressions: OMG I loved the movie! I honestly thought it would be boring seeing only one day each year (one specific date), but they did a great job! Some of the stuff are not explained as they are self-explanatory and I think that's why I didn't get bored. With every year, there are some new information and changes in Emma and Dexter's lives. I'm such a sucker for romance, so if you are too, this is a movie to watch. I would say more, but I can't without spoilers, so I won't. Also, I loved the main characters!
Did you watch the movie? Will you?
