Don't Want to Say Goodbye

Aug 23, 2012

AugustBlog002AugustBlog112AugustBlog097AugustBlog007AugustBlog120AugustBlog096So this is the end. 
The lease to my very first apartment is ending in August and it’s a bittersweet feeling. Sweet in the way that I don’t have to deal with the hot mess that I turned the little space into, and bitter in the fact that I have to move back to the suburbs for a month or two. Back to my mother’s teat I go. 
So in order to try and convince myself that this is all for the best, I scrawled up a list of all the things about my apartment that should make my eye go on a twitching spree. Let’s begin:
1) The whoosh that my oven makes when you turn it on, a sound akin to the fireballs that spit at Mario in the Bowser levels. I always imagine my pizzas being engulfed in a firey hell, but they always come out just slightly burnt. Somehow this system…works.
2) The wierd silver fish bugs darting across my bathroom floors every now and then.  They look like something that hatched out of an alien egg and are so fast that it’s too much work to try to squash them with a tissue while you’re peeing. It seems like my laziness might have no boundaries. 
3) The “between a rock and a hard place” scenerio that my windows create. Number one, if I leave them closed my tiny, unvented apartment starts smelling like a sixteen year old boy within the hour. Number two, if I leave them open a rogue group of pigeons swoop through and take group shits on my bed. What is one to do?

  18. HAHAHAH omg do pigeons really take group shits on your bed, that so terrible! I definitely think every place has its ups and downs though! The neighborhood looks beautiful though! At least going back to your mothers, ahem, teat, will allow you to save up some dough for your next place, and you'll probably get some nice (free) home cooked meals along with the bargain!
    Lovin the green dress worn as a skirt too!
    Almost the weekend, hooray!

  23. sounds like weird bugs--- good thing you won't see them anymore! & I totally understand the bittersweet feeling... I really hope it's more sweet than bitter for you though. I LOVE you skirt, and it looks great paired with that top and vest. You have such great style.. always such an inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my gosh too funny! The bugs, the pigeons. Well at least you're styled to perfection in the midst of the chaos! Cute look!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love that pattern of your skirt and the color of your shirt is so pretty! Great layering with the vest too :) And ahhhh the silver fish bugs sounds very scary and so does number three.

  29. I'm convinced silverfish are, in fact, straight from space and I'm also pretty sure they are tracking devices for aliens.

    p.s. I don't like them.

  30. Ahhh we all have to bite the bullet and move back home sometimes. A stepping stone to the next adventure! Great vest!

  32. First of all, I love the print on your skirt!

    That stinks that you have to move out of the city and into the suburbs but that list is a good reminder that the apt wasn't perfect :)

    Moves can be tough, but I'm sure it will all work out :)

  35. Ha- this made me laugh out loud! I can attest to the bittersweet feelings of living in a (not so perfect) apartment in the big city. It feels so free to be living on your own, but the trade-off is that you have to contend with all sorts of bugs, grimy areas, and interesting characters. And I totally know what that Mario fireball sounds like ;)

    Love the skirt too!
