What to do when you stay in

a night in 1

Lately I haven’t been feeling very social, which sometimes DOES happen to me.  Don’t get me wrong, I probably still go out more than your average 30-year-old woman but I’ve noticed that there are definitely some nights (even weekends) when I’m just like “eh…I think I’ll stay in with a bottle of wine.”  And yes, I did say BOTTLE, instead of glass; this sometimes gets me into trouble.  And yeah, my friends make fun of me when I complain about a slight hangover and they ask “what did you do last night?” to which I reply, “nothing..I stayed in and drank by myself.”  WHATEVER, I say to their side eyed-glances.  I think that if, at 30, you can’t sit alone in your apartment and drink some wine, then you really have some issues.  It’s OK to be alone.  In fact, you should ENJOY it.  The old saying goes that you can’t expect anyone else to love you, if you can’t love yourself, right?  Well the best way to get to know “thyself” is to spend that quality time with…THYSELF.  Regardless, I recently came across this Refinery29 article about exactly what I’m talking about: what to do when you stay in, and it got me thinking…do I have regular habits when I stay home (aside from the wine, of course)?  Well here are my expert recommendations of what I think everyone should try.  What do you guys do when you stay in?
