apartment3 Apartment Apartment2
If you have been following me for a while, you know that I have been going around in circles about getting my own place for a loooong time. It was such a scary thing to become completely independent and I have to admit, there was all of those fears going around and around my head for so long. If you read THIS post a couple of months ago, you might have realised that I have finally got to the point where I had convinced myself it was the time to give the jump.
To be honest, everything moved so quickly, I got a few appointments to see some apartments I liked but most of them were already taken. I had to fly to New York and I basically begged the real estate agent to let me see a couple of them before flying out. I saw two that day, the first one was so beautiful but far too small to fit all of my stuff. The moment I walked into the second one I just knew, I told my best friend; This is my apartment, I just know it.
I walked around and I knew that was the place I wanted, I had seen so many and I had never had this feeling, so I made an offer right away. There actually were a few people interested in the same apartment and they had to make a decision of who was going to get it. I was feeling super stressed and scared of not being chosen, but I had to wait, fly to New York and hope for the best. 4 days later I got THE phone call; You got the apartment!!!…I was alone in my room and I was so shocked and so happy, I literally broke into happy tears and I called my mom right away.

Everything is moving SO FAST now, I got the keys and signed the contract yesterday and I am going to spend the week moving in. I have spent so long looking at endless Pinterest boards about interiors and I have so many ideas of what to do with the place, but I also want to take it slow, so I get the stuff I really want. I am trying to do a mixture of modern and antique furniture so I really have to be very patient to find the right pieces.

I honestly cannot even explain how excited and absolutely terrified I am about this new chapter, but above all, I am so happy I finally faced my fear and I am sure everything will be perfect in the end…

You worked hard to get where you are now and I believe that you deserve the very best girl! I’m so happy you’ve found the apartment of your dreams. That must be SO exciting, to finally get your own place that you can decorate from scratch!

    I love that there are classic doors and windows, white walls and such a pretty floor in a very neutral shade. You can really do everything with it! I’m looking forward to some pics when you move in already and have it decorated the way you want. I’m really curious about your interior taste!

  12. HI :)

    I am just wondering what you mean about becoming completely independent. Because you lived with you boyfriend before? Its inspiring to me since I also have some personal thoughts about changing my live right now. Its just sooo scary!
    You are such an inspiration :) Thank you so much for writing such a great blog :)

  13. Congratulations Andy! It’s a big step, but you’re going to love it! There’s nothing better than your own place to come home to! Enjoy!

  14. And I also have such feelings as you describe in that post that u link here, as I also scary to do big moves or changes in life but I want to do it- also move to also another far away place – Usa, but i feel like is harder coz i never been there but I want to move there coz there is my soulmate – i feel he is my soulmate we met online but we not ever met in person lol so that will be interesting right? And when it comes to this thing I now have oportunity to move there and be resident soon next year, that why i also will have to make big changes, I also afraid if will like there in US but from what i see on movies and youtube I like it, and it was always my dream to live in usa but not so vivid dream, that dream was hidden somewhere deep in me and then I even forgot that , then I met my soulmate and wanted go there right away but time was not good, and had to wait… But soon i hope i will go – and you know what, I had few dreams, that were I think premenition dreams. One dream I had when I not even yet met my soulmate, dream was that I am going by some bus in some other country and Some voice tells me that I will live in different country and I have map and a key in hand and then I go out of bus and meeting and hugging someone I love – like someone i already know and am so happy. I think that dream was the indication for me and that I have to wait on that person and that it will be true. In that dream I had a feeling that that voice who talk is like some gardient angel, as in that bus i felt i am alone but with some invisible person-lol.
    Wish u great new begging in your new chapter of life!!!
