So let’s discuss Sam’s awesome new apartment. Ok. I moved in here last monday. I only saw really one apartment when I visited a few months ago, and that one was really nice and big. Mine is about the same size. (if someone in my family e-mails me pictures I’ll post here)
My family and I didn’t have to buy any furniture at all. I h have a bed and nightstand, a nice big dresser with lots of drawers and plenty of room to put stuff on top, and a table for my computer and scanner.
I also decided to get a landline, after much debate, since it’s nice to be able to call residents and staff within the building. And it’s good to have a chicago number for all the new Chicago friends I’ll hopefully be meeting.
Oh, I forgot. The apartment also came with an awesome couch that reclines, yay! TV is free here too, and I’ll be getting one soon.
The apartment also has very nice windows that let the sunshine in. I also like the windowsills that are nice and big. I picture Lucky sitting in the window, or Simon. So sad, no cats!
Then there’s the kitchin. I h have a nice fridge, and microwave with braille on it. I also have a sink with cupboards above it where I can put my snacks.
I love the bathroom I have that’s so nice and spacious. There are plenty of places to hang towels and put stuff. I had issues with getting hot water in the shower, but now that’s fixed. It’s still not as hot as at college or my parent’s house, because I guess there’s some stupid rule that in a facility you can’t have water over 100 degrees or else it could burn someone. But the shower seat is nice as a plus, good for sitting and shaving.
I honestly just walk around this place everyday touching stuff and saying to myself or out loud,”I can’t believe this is all mine!” And it is. I signed a lease and payed rent on Wednesday.
So yeah, I’m very pleased with my little set up. And really can’t ask for anything more. Except for a cat of course!
But seriously. My family and I never thought I’d ever have my own place. And now thanks to this community I can. That means more than anyone could ever imagine.
So yeah, all that’s missing is the party! Or at least a couple visitors.
