home away from home...

So, I have officially moved out. My apartment complex is perfect, my room is HUGE (I mean enormous), I have the best roommate ever (my sister) and it's close to home. 

...but it's way harder than I thought! It's really weird not living with my parents. It's strangely surreal. I know I did it because I had to eventually and I wanted to ease into it. It was the right thing to do...but it feels unnecessary from this new perspective. So much work and extra money just to feel weird and kind of alone. We'll see if I'm really ready for the responsibility. Not to mention, I don't get to see these guys when I go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning:

:(!

Trying to stay positive...we've acquired some pretty cool stuff and will probably start painting this week. I have so much extra space in my room I'm going to be able to set up a permanent mic for recording and even get a couch! I've got some hot air balloon collectible things and am going to try and do a garden manor/topiary/alice in wonderland kind of feel. Gotta keep busy. Here are some of my inspirations and possible accent wall colors:



Come visit...
