I wanted to share a little life update with you guys. The past few years have honestly just been a whirlwind. Since I graduated from high school in 2014, I have moved five times. With all this moving, it’s been hard to find a place that truly feels like home. “Home” to me right now is my boyfriends parents house. I am there every day and sleep there most nights. If I am not there I am at my apartment in the city of Rochester which right now, is basically empty since my roommates are all moved back home with their parents. I don’t like being alone in all that space. My room is on the third floor and if an unwanted someone were to come into my house I would never hear them, and that is scary.
Since my roommates and I are not re signing our lease for the next year, I have been forced to move… again! I am going back to living by myself in a one-bedroom apartment in the city of Rochester. I picked a tiny place in a great location where I don’t have to hide my precious puppy Winston from my landlord.
I am so very excited to move in just a few short weeks. I have been trying my best to get prepared for the move by selling a lot of my belongings on Craigslist and packing what I want to take with me. This time since I have enough money, I am looking forward to decorating my apartment with all new furniture and decor to match. In previous apartments, I have been given a lot of things that didn’t match and my home wasn’t all that “cute” like I would have liked it to be.
I have found some furniture items on Craigslist for extremely cheap that I am looking to re finish so they look brand new and match my desired theme. I am so excited to start those projects, and I’ll be sure to document how I did it, with the help of some of my men, of course!
I think this next move will be great for me. I feel confident that I will actually enjoy spending time in my apartment instead of trying to escape like I have been in recent years. Especially since I’m paying an arm and a leg for rent, I want to make sure I’m getting my moneys worth!
The moving won’t stop here though; my plan for this new apartment is that it will be my last rental. My goal is to buy a house in July/August 2018 for Justin and I to live in together. Why isn’t Justin moving in with me now? He is currently unemployed, and wouldn’t be able to pay rent to live with me just yet. Saving money for our future home is his plan for now, so staying with his parents is his best option. For the time being, it’s just me and my little Winston moving into our new home in less than three weeks. I cannot contain my excitement and can’t wait to update you guys once I’m all settled!
