A home is not a home until you make it home and my new place in Silver Spring is starting to become that.
I was a little worried on Sunday night when all I saw were a ton of plastic containers, empty closet space and then bags of stuff sitting in my new room that it would take forever to feel at home. And I knew that I won’t have much time to settle in before work because I started work in 12 hours but to my surprise over the past few days, I have found a way to get semi settled in.
I’ve finally unpacked my business and winter clothes and my shoes which may not mean much to some but for me, that’s a step toward feeling at home and I FINALLY got some real sheets for my bed. (And by this statement, I mean, when I moved in, I thought I packed the right set of sheets for my new bed…well, let’s just say the sheets didn’t fit so I’ve been sleeping with a fitted sheet and blanket…not cool lol).
But now, I’m getting there. I have a sense of home coming into my room. See!
I still have a long way to go but I’m on a good start and I know that slowly but surely this new place will become more home-y!
Anywho, stay tuned for more apartment updates! I’m planning my trips to Ikea and Value Village!
Until next time,
P.S. I paid rent for the first time day and I thought I’d feel so empowered about having a place and all this independence…nope, I just feel broke lol. But it’s probably because I’m still working on getting my first paycheck. Get back to me in a month! 🙂
