about this blog
Why chai at six? Because growing up, my family and I would have chai every evening. Those moments of my youth are among my most favorite memories.

Who am I? A twentysomething working fulltime in Knoxville, Tenn.

    chai at six
    I moved to my new apartment two weeks ago. I signal this as the official start of my new life. I say this because I've officially been at my job for six months and so far things are rollin'. It's amazing knowing how a new home can make your life change so much. Living here with the sunlight flooding the rooms, the wooden floors creaking with history, the trees outside moving in the wind, the lovely homes in the neighborhood, it just makes me appreciate everything even more. I'm on my own, independent, and hopefully on a rise.

    The few who do happen to come across the blog must be wondering what I'm talking about -- six months after I started my career is not the start. I can't explain it, but I think moving here and knowing I'll be around for a while, I'm sort of settling roots. The six months adds some permanancy to my life here. I will be a Knoxvillian for a while.

    With the idea of settling roots, my weekends have been spent driving around furniture stores looking at couches and tables and dressers. I'm very exact in what I want and am trying not to settle. However when I look at the price of things maybe I should. It's hard to define my style. I like dark woods, almost black, which is odd as I never was one of those people who was really into black. Recently, I have become really fond of gray. I like it's neutral palatte and the many shades it comes in. Maybe it's just my fondess of working on the Web and knowing the versatality of EAEAEA and 4E4E4E.

    The color palette I'm looking at is dark wood, almost black, dull silver and splashes of red. I'd love to a have a lot couch with lots of straight lines, hard edges. The color could be a neutral gray. I like funky modern, although I was looking at furniture ads in Wallpaper*, and found a lot of things in there too minimalist. There's a great store here called Storehouse furniture which has a lot of great stuff. The thing is a lot of the stuff is way too expensive. So I figure maybe just look at stuff at garage sales and flea markets and maybe find things there.

    Hopefully by the end of the month, I'll have more furniture than I do now: bed, two wooden folding chairs and a small wooden folding table. If you see something I may like, please let me know.
