I'm looking for a new place to live now. I'm tired of the walk in closet the nickname my brother gave this apartment. I figure it's also time I start establishing some roots. I figure I won't be leaving anytime soon, so I better start buying furniture and find a home here. I think I'm also doing this to fill my time -- I don't really have much else to do, so maybe having my own home will inspire my design ideas and just bring better things for me. I drove by a place I'd read about and it totally is someplace I'd love to live. It's in a residential neighborhood, about 3 minutes from Kingston Pike and about 12 minutes from work. And the apartment/townhouses are historic with hardwood floors -- something I'm craving after seeing so many carpeted rooms. And there are a few stores across from the complex. I just wish there is an apartment available for me and that I CAN AFFORD IT.
Thinking in the long term - I also hope I have people who will help me move. I hardly have friends here, and am so used to my brothers and me moving around, that now being on my own is going to be tough. Luckily, the only pieces of furniture I own now are a lamp, tv/vcr and my laptop, so hopefully the move won't be that bad. Send me your best wishes!
I came across this lovely online magazine » digsmagazine.com, which has inspired me even more to having an exciting "post graduation, pre-family lifestyle.
Wonder if this is all going according to plan. Maybe you can muse with me.
