Moved In!

I'm all moved into my new apartment!! I moved in last Sunday (a week ago) and spent most of my free time during the week unpacking and moving furniture around, with help from Chris. We put together my clothing racks and set up the big TV his mom gave me. I love that I have more closet space here to hang up a lot of the clothes that were shoved into my bureau drawers. It feels good to have more room in general. I finally upgraded from a twin to a queen-sized bed. I have room in here for my bookcase and a chair. I'm really happy and relieved now that everything is mostly unpacked and put away. I still have some stuff that I have to deal with still, but the majority is done.

It feels nice to not have to answer to anyone but myself. I think it's an important feeling and experience to have to be able to have your own space and not have to tell anyone where you're going, what you're doing, when to have dinner, etc. It's nice to just live by my own standards and schedule and to be in charge of every aspect of my life. Plus, my cousin's cat likes to hang out with me all the time and sleeps in my room, so now I have a kitty to hang out with all the time!

I'm really proud of this move and I'm excited for this stage in my life. I am really proud that I made it a goal to be moved out by the time I'm 25, and I did it. It's one of those things that I always felt like I said I would do, but probably wouldn't happen when I wanted it to, but it did and I'm so glad.

I still have some decorating to do and there are a bunch of crafts I want to do, but that's on the back burner for now. There are more important things needed to spend my time and money on first. That's the one thing that is really new to me and makes me nervous - having all these new and big financial obligations. I know I'll adjust and I will get used to it, but it won't be for a couple of months since this month's rent was already paid when we decided on the place and next month's rent we only have to pay half since we moved in the middle of this month. It probably won't be until September until I know exactly how things will be with the usual rent and payments.

These were taken at my favorite book store. It was just a simple and comfy outfit for a relaxing day out in the heat. I'm so ready for fall. Summer is cool and it has its perks, but I'm kinda over it by now, especially when I'm trying to avoid running the A/C to avoid a costly electric bill. I can't wait for the colorful leaves, apple and pumpkin everything, and Halloween time. It's the best time of the year! It's a shame it never lasts too long.
