home is where the heart {& huge security deposit} is.

this is the face of a deranged woman who viewed
174 apartments in one week:
{or maybe just somewhere in the teens}
i saw the good, the bad, and the suuuuper ugly. i read craigslist ads for people advertising that the apartment comes with BREAKFAST {apparently it was above a diner}. i saw people advertising that they were looking for a roommate to share their child's bunk bed {bottom bunk}. i saw more than one post specifying "no ferrets."

and yet, in the above blurry iphone pic, i am collapsed on the floor due to exhaustion lounging within the freshly-painted walls of my new apartment.

upsides: it is insanely bright, full of vintage touches, and my dining room has more storage than my entire current apartment.
downsides: my landlord now owns my firstborn AND some stock options, just in case i put too many holes in a wall. love the life of renting in the city.

look forward to some upcoming posts about decorating {...and whining about moving, most likely}.
