I’m feeling restless. I’ve been ready to move for a while now.
Partially because I enjoy moving but also because I don’t exactly love
where I live. My house is great, don’t get me wrong. I’ve got a washer
and dryer (I will never live somewhere without them again!), I
have a porch, a dedicated office, and ample space for all my
collections. I also really like my landlord, which I’m not so sure is
something a lot of people can say. It’s just that my neighbors aren’t the best, my yard is
always covered in trash (thanks to aforementioned neighbors) so I’m
constantly pulling something gross out of Klaus’ mouth, and somewhere a tiny bit safer couldn’t hurt. I’ve kind of come to peace with all of it now but over the
summer not loving where I lived was causing me a lot of stress. I
wanted to desperately just to get the heck out of here.
feel like I shouldn’t even mention it, because I don’t like to talk
about good things before they’re final, but I found my dream apartment
nestled exactly where I want to be in Cleveland!* The bad news is
someone already lives there. The good news is I am at the top of the
wait list! The neither bad nor good news is that it’s a month to month
lease. They could give their notice tomorrow, or they could give it a
year from now. Sooo, it’s kind of a waiting game. Just knowing that it
is a possibility for the future gives me butterflies and has me beyond
excited. I’m already dreaming up the furniture I want, and what it’ll be
like to live in this place.
I ended up buying one new plant and three large white planters.
I am obsessed with how everything looks in my living room! I’ve always
been pretty good at succulents, and small house plants but never really
gave too much thought to the big ones. That’s all changed now. I like big plants, and I cannot lie.
I can’t believe I went so long without something like this in my
living room. All of this was exactly what I needed to get excited about
my apartment again!
So yeah, all that just to show you some pretty photos of my new plants on their new stand. But seriously, tell me all the different ways you keep your apartment feeling new, and exciting to you! I can’t be the only person who gets bored with spaces.
*This will be the first and last time I mention that place until I hear anything. But you best believe as soon as I hear anything y’all will get the full scoop and obviously about 40 billion photos! Cross your fingers that this all happens sooner rather than later.
PS. I know it’ll probably get asked – how do I keep my pets out of the plants? They seriously just do not care about plants at all. I had to lure Professor into these photos with catnip.
