Today I am proud to announce that I have successfully moved into my San Diego room. Well, I mean, it’s not your traditional room with four walls and a decent amount of privacy…but who needs privacy these days?… it’s a living room!
I am trying to save money on rent and save for future travel opportunities 🙂
My living room has two walls; one has a huge window that I love! I’m a huge fan of natural light and I actually prefer waking up to the sun rather than shutting it out. I guess you can say I’m an early riser.
With the help of my dear dear father, we set up my room after an 8-hour drive from San Mateo. We hit traffic in LA (surprise) and the truck had no air conditioning so we were stuck in 91 degree weather… I don’t think I will ever willingly live in LA.
We went to IKEA and picked up four room dividers, the ones you see in the picture. My dad chose them (not me) and I’m glad he did. I absolutely adore them. The top part of it reminded me of my balcony in Barcelona. We brought my desk, chair, bed, rug, and clothing rack from home.
I proceeded to decorate my room as I saw fit. All the things in my room I’ve hoarded from previous years-that’s what happens when you get to college.
I am super excited to put some stuff on my wall. I have an idea of what they will be so I will keep that updated.
I haven’t posted recently because I have been living without Wi-Fi! The cable company comes tomorrow so lets hope everything goes well.
I’ve been cooking for myself a lot more and I feel really comfortable in this place. It also helps that I am living with Rebecca, who I met in 9th grade and studied abroad with! She is a true gem. We are also sharing with two ladies. We are all living in a two-story town home near school and they each have their own room. We have our own washer and dryer for laundry which is pure luck! We also have a fully equipped kitchen with a functioning oven.
I’m ready to start the school year. I’m nervous to start work but hey, it’s got to happen some time.
