I have been feeling totally disconnected from the internet lately. I typically stay connected through my blog, facebook and twitter, but it hasn’t been the same since September when we regained power after losing it for a week. I felt disconnected and invisible which left me spending less time online, but I miss my friends. I miss the community that we’ve built together, and I want to be a daily part of it again!
Things have been changing a lot lately, and some positive things have been happening in my life. I am settling into my new apartment, doing well in school and enjoying time with my friends who live in or near downtown New Orleans.
Since I have settled into my new apartment for the most part I want to share a few photos. I still have to hang things on the wall, but I’ll need to wait for friends to help with that. The Suit has been so much help already, and I’m sure I’ll have things on the wall soon!
My pretty wooden blinds haven’t been installed yet, but management gave me paper ones until the permanent ones arrive (hopefully this week or next.) And I’m honestly just so happy to be in my own little apartment that I don’t mind waiting for them.
I still need an area rug, and I found one at Lowe’s that I love. I’m just not sure how big it should be.
I’m not sure what I should put above the sink. Clint (aka The Suit) suggested a decorative chalkboard for inspirational messages and notes. Does anyone else have thoughts on that?
Or maybe this should go above the sink? I definitely want to display it somewhere!
I have a beautiful painting of the Brooklyn Bridge on a canvas that I plan to hang somewhere. Maybe I’ll hang it above the bed? Again, I’m not sure yet.
Should anything hang on the wall above the TV? There’s a lot of space, but I’m not sure if I want anything on the wall or not.
I could only get a portion of my bathroom in the photo, but you get the idea, right?
The washer and dryer are in a nook behind the main bathroom door. They’re quiet and out of the way which is nice.
I’d like to post more photos because my view is probably my favorite part, but this is the internet so……………You’ll just have to trust me when I say that it’s pretty outside.
Since moving last week I’ve been busy, but I have made time for workouts and cooking at home. I’m happy to be in my new place, and I’m thankful to finally have the opportunity to carve out a routine. Most of us need a routine, and it’s obvious that I need one. I love being back on the elliptical, and my new favorite thing is the recumbent stair climber.
There are more changes on the horizon, and I’m looking forward to experiencing new things. I’m happier now than I’ve been in recent memory, and I’m ready to spend some time getting back into a successful, happy and healthy groove.
What are you looking forward to right now?
