What’s Changed:

keep your cool or it'll be curtains for us!

  • First apartment up high
  • My own curtains (was it worth the money and stress of finding them? I think so.)
  • Two roommates instead of one
  • Not near enough to a Tim Hortons to walk there every day, so I make all my own tea instead of buying it
  • Have to pay for laundry (ew)
  • No ugly green carpet
  • No boxes allowed to be stored in my closet after finished unpacking (as per my new personal goal)
  • 20 minute walk to/from work, thus more exercise
  • Can see the lights of the city at night (beautiful!)
  • Allowed to open my windows (WOW!)
  • Balcony, for fresh air-getting purposes
  • Concrete walls, so I hear absolutely nothing that’s going on in the rest of the house (it’s almost kind of creepy)
  • Giant closet, although I still need more space
  • Books stored on desk shelves, instead of odds and ends (I feel smart! Perhaps I shall read said books!)
  • One of my angelfish died (no more fish after these last two die; I can’t stands no more)
  • Organized (shelves, under the bed bags so that I don’t have to pull out 30 things at once to get to one box, sticky hooks to avoid punching holes in the walls)
  • Survivor: ah, the tables have turned!
  • TV lives in the closet for lack of space; eh, what can you do. It looks like an alcove anyway, so it’s not so bad to watch it with the door open

No furniture yet, but it’s coming tomorrow!

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
