I Got It!

It is official, I seriously did beat off all the other applicants! I will have my own place on Sept. 1st.

It is located in the Eastlake neighborhood of Seattle, only about two blocks off lake union, and about 3 minutes away from downtown, capitol hill, and the U district. It is in the middle of everything, but still in a nice residential spot. Did I mention it is one block away from Voxx Coffee, shoooot, there goes my money.

It is a 1920's building with great character, but well kept up. Nice wood flooring, marble counter tops, a full kitchen, huge walk in closet, and although it is a studio, there is enough room for seperate living and sleeping space, which is very rare in my price range. Plus it is the top floor corner unit, so I have two extra windows and no one above me stompin up a storm.

I was so excited yesterday it was like I had 12 cups of coffee, I literally kept bouncing. Getting your first apartment is a big deal. And now my mind is racing with all the things I need to accumulate and do before I move in.

I start work august 20th and I move in sept 1st. The whirlwind is about to begin.

I would love to hear any suggestions you have about decorating a smaller space, and just renting in general, because I am a clear noob.

Looking forward to some cheap diy decorations, and funny teacher stories coming your way in the next months
