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…
