You invite friends over for lunch, merienda, and dinner

Having your friends and family over is a weekly event that you look forward to. You love staying at home because you can enjoy making meals together in the kitchen and even indulge in movie marathons! These bonding activities are much more exclusive and budget-friendly, too!

You treasure privacy

Since you're out almost the whole week, it's beneficial to enjoy some alone time too. It allows you to ponder about the past week and plan the week ahead with much more enthusiasm and positivity.
