GUESS WHAT GUYS!
I finally have my own apartment, allllll to myself. It feels like a big step into a serious adulthood status. I found a great little 1 bedroom apartment--it was the first place I walked into and said "I love it". As in, I don't hate anything about it. And believe me, that is no easy feat. My requirements were hardwood floors (a big must have, I HATE carpeting), a full kitchen (there are so many bachelors), laundry on site, parking, a tub...the list goes on. I was looking at studio apartments as well as 1 bedrooms. I looked at so many places I would deliriously admire beautiful apartments with all of my requirements that were WAY out of my price range. Finding a place is such a frustrating experience, especially when you're living alone, because you really want to enjoy coming home. I was also working with a SERIOUS time crunch, and I won't get into details but I literally found this place at the absolute last minute. Well, actually a friend at work found it and sent it to me, and for that I will be forever grateful.
SO! Here are the details. 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, hardwood floors, 3 walk in closets (OMG!), lots of storage space, close to work...it's perfect for me. I will certainly be updating you as I make progress (but for that I need to make progress first!) with before and after shots. For now, here are a couple shots I snapped prior to filling my place with boxes galore.
