This summer I am living in my first actual apartment, and I feel so grown up. For every other part of my 22 years I have either lived at home, or in a dorm, or in my sorority house with 75 other girls, so this is a big change from any of these. Mostly, because I don’t have anyone else who helps clean (besides my roommate) or cook (which my roommate does the most of). But it is so nice to have my own room, and to have the chance to practice doing those domestic duties just for the summer. In August I will move back into my sorority house, with 75 of my fabulous sorority sisters, our cleaning staff, and our two chefs (I’m kind of looking forward to it). So for now, I’m enjoying myself…but I can’t help feeling like I’m playing house.
Just to give you a little bit of an idea of what my place looks like…here is part of the tour…
I love that my roommate and I both utilize the living room…all the time. Instead of hanging out alone in our rooms, we both watch Bravo together almost every night…while we Facebook and catch up on emails. It reminds me of what my sister and I do all the time, so it makes me feel so at home!
The best part of my room is that it is just mine…but I do have twin beds…which isn’t that great. My roommate pushed hers together in her room to create a “Mega Bed”, but I haven’t done that just yet. We have twin beds and all of the other beautiful furniture in our apartment because it came fully furnished, which was AMAZING. The last thing I would have wanted to do during my one free week this summer is find furniture…so it just made my summer that much better. So, I can handle the twin bed for the next month and a half…it’s not too bad. But I crafted up my room with pillows (that I made myself), and with some pictures of my friends and family of course. Another amazing thing about my room – it is big enough for ALL of my stuff! I’ll show you how amazing it really is another time….because it is truly a miracle.
