Ode to my first apartment
April 29, 2010 § 14 Comments
Hey guys! Things are really starting to fall into place for summer ’10 and my sophmore year. Who spent yesterday evening on the phone crying to their mom thinking they were going to drop out of school and fall of the face of the earth? Me? No way! 😉
Who is currently dancing around barefoot to sweet jams in her empty apartment? Me? No way!
Before I get into the fun stuff, how about we take a look at some progress in the past week:
OPERATION FINISH LINE:
– Selling and donating apartment furniture
– Moving out of my college town place for the summer <–Friday, Friday!
– Making sure this place is spotless to I avoid being charged out the a$$ in fees
– Finding an inexpensive storage space to hold some things I’ll need until August
– Signing up for an honors doom room with my homegirl Christina for next year
– Studying for and taking each of my finals
– Finalizing summer plans (possibly three cities and at least two jobs in four months)
Now, a story for you all. It really is an ode of sorts. An ode to my first apartment! After an event filled cross country adventure (how about we save that for another post, eh?) The Boyfriend and I immediately met up with our future land lord’s assistant to go over boring things the terms of our agreement. Believe me, the confused face is just for the camera. I hope…
Renting your first place can be so stressful. We were excited to see this view for the first time. Looking out at the mountains during a shower is so relaxing.
Spring came and so did jobs and new friends. We also cooked an assortment of delicious goodies 😉
We hosted over a dozen couch surfers
I loved spending time visiting downtown jems and playing for hours at White Sands
Summer brought us a foster kitty
A birthday was celebrated
Some questions for you, the reader! I’ll answer too 🙂
What has been your favorite memory in the past year?
When my mom visited this fall for my birthday and went to a festival with the The Boyfriend and I.
I also really loved going home and spending time with my dad, his gf and my little brother.
What are you most looking forward to in the upcomming year?
Making my body healthy enough to train for my first race. Wait…race? Did I just write that?!? You guys inspire me.
