It’s finally here! You don’t even know how excited I am to be sharing pieces of my apartment with you. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! Like every person that is obsessed with decorating, I can’t say that it will stay like this forever or that it’s complete, but I can say that it’s comfy, homey, fabulous and so very me. Not only will I be sharing my apartment, but I also will be sharing some tips for decorating your first apartment on a budget.
If money was unlimited and I could get anything I wanted, I would head straight to Restoration Hardware (can anyone say expensive taste?) and buy the whole showroom as is LOL. But money was not unlimited and I was working with a just gradated from college budget. It’s okay, don’t panic if that’s you too! You don’t need to have all the money in the world to make your apartment look good and I’m glad I get to share with you some of the tips and tricks I learned a long the way.
Don’t judge by the title. I promise it’s not going to be all negative. It’s just an open an honest conversation, from me to you, on being single. I’m actually thankful for my singleness (It took a lot of prayers and a lot of revelations to get to this moment lol), but there are some sucky moments if I’m being real. This is just the disclaimer, so let’s start this off right!
It’s been a long time. For so long, I had no idea what I was going to write in this post but I knew it needed to be done. To be honest, I still don’t know what I’m gonna write but hopefully as I start typing it will flow lol. Let’s see, where did we leave off? I was in my last semester of college (which was kicking my butt). I was worried about finding a job, what I wanted to do, where I was gonna live, etc. etc. You know, the normal worries for someone who was about to graduate. The big question was do I move back home or stay in Orlando? I felt like I needed to stay in Orlando, but I didn’t know if I was going to find a job to be able to afford to live as an entry level employee. I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. It was tough. Especially being the planner that I am, it’s hard not knowing what your next steps are.
As graduation gets closer and closer, the one thing that’s on everyone’s mind is “What do I do now?” Should I go to grad school? How do I find a job? What’s the job hunt going to be like? We’ve been in school all of our lives and now we have to put to use what we’ve learned over the past couple of years and go out there and find a job. My beautiful and talented friend, Rebecca, gave me some of the best after graduation advice a couple of months a go. Today, I have asked her to share on the blog the process she went through finding a job after graduation and how she powered through it…
