I'm getting there. I don't completely hate my apartment right now. That is progress. My bank account? Not so pleased. But... that's okayish.
I've been on an absolute mission to get my apartment in decent shape. There's nothing like a hard deadline (omg Wednesday) to kick things into full gear. Plus I've been here for almost exactly a year and it's about time I take care of my apartment.
Here are two of my favorite parts right now:
My bed. I turned it 90 degrees, which I didn't think was possible... but it works with approximately four centimeters to spare. I don't know anything about feng shui at all, but I swear I have been sleeping so much better with this new set up!
Some things that haven't gone so well:
A sketchy encounter with Craigslist
Wallpaper shipped to the wrong address (my fault, now it's lost in the mail.....)
An outlet I was counting on doesn't actually work
Four lightbulbs that need to be replaced but I'm not tall enough to reach... Hmmm...
Websites that have been lifesavers:
Curated sales. And discounts. Nothing better.
Definitely have a long way to go with my apartment, but it's definitely moving in the right direction.
