It’s been a while, I know. 2019 was certainly a whirlwind. Last time I posted, It was in late June, early July, and I was only a couple of weeks away from moving. I moved out of my parents house at the beginning of August.
In the months preceding my move, I had a great deal of help from one of my doctors, who helped me find a dining room table and chairs, and a couch (with a queen fold out bed). I used Facebook Marketplace to my advantage and got myself a toaster, microwave, microwave stand, little coffee table and book shelves. Walmart came in handy and I got a TV and TV stand on their last sale. I was being as thrifty as I could.
My apartment went from looking like this:
Before they fixed it up for me. It then looked like this:
When I first started moving things in. This was the next phase:
Still getting situated. Finally, it came to this:
Finally, this was it looked like finished (ignore the boxes the TV is sitting on. I do have a TV stand now). I have cooking implements that were given to me by family friends. I’ve been enjoying cooking my own meals, but I only really get to do it twice a week: Sunday night and Monday night. All the other nights I work too late to cook my own dinner. This Sunday night, I have my younger brother visiting and I said I would cook Katsudon for dinner (Japanese pork cutlet bowls). I’m looking forward to it.
Anyway, I am very happy with myself and where I am right now. I have my own space, I’m engaged, and looking forward to 2020.
And on that note, it’s been real!
