I'm a big girl now and it's about damn time I acted like it.

I'm 24 years old now (every time I say it, I feel a little old). It's about damn time that I actually start taking change or what I want. My dad said that he would buy me new living room furniture for Christmas. We're basically in July and I still don't have it. I'm tired of waiting and I'm done asking, we got into a fight the last time we talked about it. The other day, while I was brushing my teeth, I started thinking had an epiphany. Stop waiting around and start doing shit. I'm going to buy myself new living room furniture. This needs to be done slowly but surely because I don't make a shit ton of money. I have a great apartment and it has so much potential.

When I first moved in, I was reluctant to start unpacking. I had just gone through a couple of unstable years and I really wasn't sure how long I was going to be living here. A snowstorm hit the day after I moved in so I had no choice but to start unpacking and putting shit away. Giving the uncertainty of my living situation, I did everything half-assed because I figured that I'd be moving soon enough. Things started looking up and I started getting "better". Since I hadn't needed living room furniture int he previous places I had lived, I didn't have any when I moved in. I had a dining room table and bedroom furniture, part of which the movers broke when they were bringing it in. In December, I will have lived here two years and I still feel like I'm not quite moved in yet. Don't get me wrong, the apartment is very much mine. Let's be serious, my shit is everywhere but it's still missing a part of me. Does that even make sense? I know what I mean but do you know what I mean? My dad came over the other day and said that my apartment looked sad. What the fuck does that mean? Yes, I know that I have a couch and chairs that looks like it belongs in your mother's house. I got it all  (a couch, an ottoman and two armchairs) for $50 and the guys even brought it into my apartment for me. What more do you want from me? I'm a poor college student.

I'm just going to bite the bullet and start buying the shit that I need to buy, it's going to take me awhile but I'm going to do it.

Apartment wishlist: (all from Ikea)
New couch with chaise lounge
TV stand/unit with storage
Coffee table
Swivel chairs
46" flat screen TV
DVD player for the living room
Bookcases (I have so many books that it's ridiculous)
Dining room table & chairs (not super necessary but the set I have is super ugly)
Curtains for my bedroom
Curtains for the living room
New bed (I kinda want a king size now but then I have to get a new mattress/sheets, fail)
6-drawer dresser (to replace the one that the movers broke)

I have a lot of pictures/posters and things that need to be framed and hung. There are a ton more that I want that I saw on Allposters.com but let's not go crazy with everything on there I want. I'll start off with these two because I need them in my apartment, five minutes ago...

Turns out the posters were on sale so maybe I'll get more than two...it depends on how I feel tomorrow. I want to get this all done by December 31st? Is that too soon? I don't think so. Wish me luck because I'm fucking doing it bitches.

  1. I feel ya on this! I have lived in my apt. for 2 years too and I still have all ghetto stuff that people have given me instead of buying new nice stuff like furniture. In my room, the only things that are mine are a desk and some plastic drawers, everything else was donated to me lol. I really need to get some new nicer stuff!! It's hard when u think about moving again though and moving all of it.
