A few weeks ago, I walked down one of the side streets in Bloomington at night and saw into this girls apartment.
Her apartment looked so warm and comfortable. If I was sick, having a couch like hers would be very inviting.
I want a couch on which to cuddle under my Log Cabin Blanket. I want to be able to make grilled cheese sandwiches and have a whole cabinet for all of my mugs and my teas.
And I’m finally done living in dorms. Finally.
Here in NYC (yep, I made it, more to come later), I finally have an apartment. But since I flew here, my roomie and I didn’t bring more than the bare minimals. I expected our apartment to be an example of extreme minimalism.
But, that’s not the case! You see, all these Columbia students are moving out – and throwing away perfectly nice things. So, Rachel and I put up a sign asking people to call us if they were tossing certain items (someone gave her a guitar. Seriously!) and walked around the buildings grabbing stuff that we liked from trash piles.
Two girls gave us this futon! It’s going to be perfect for when people come and visit me!
The wok – is in perfect condition! We’ve also gotten our hands on a gorgeous rug, 7 posters and some awesome storage bins. When we’re all moved and settled into the apartment we’ll be in for the summer, I’ll post pics of everything. It’ll be far more cozy that I thought it was going to be!
Today, I’m off to the MoMA!
