Extremely excited to be leaving behind the last four weeks of temporary housing and moving into our new apartment. But, I’m less than excited about decorating the place. I don’t even have the energy to decorate my blog posts with photos, much less 73 square meters. I just want to not think about it to tell you the truth. I posed the question a while back about how far personal style extends for some of you–that my home was more functional than a reflection of my personal style. At the time I was curious to try out my personal style on my home, but right now I really just wish the stupid place had some furniture already in it so I could get on with my life.
I don’t think it would be all that different if I were decorating the place on my own, even though Robin’s desire for Megaman-themed everything doesn’t really extend to my own personal taste. I just don’t have the energy for it right now, and I am more interested in sewing projects that have more to do with clothes than curtains, and writing projects that don’t require before and after photos and magical craft skills. I want to take photos of something interesting, not the inside of my apartment.
All of this brings me to a realisation that I had a couple months ago: I’m not sure quite how interested I really am in personal style, my own or otherwise. I’m quite bored with it actually. My own and otherwise. This blog started out as a writing exercise, so I picked something I thought I was interested in. I started this blog with the intention of writing regularly for one year, and I plan to continue to do so within the style theme. But I have to admit, I’ve learned a lot about myself these past 5 or so months and where my true passions do NOT lie.
I did make a list though of awesome things about the apartment so I don’t give up on decorating and eat standing up in the kitchen for the next 12 months:
1. Bathtub. Haven’t had a decent one in a while.
2. Bidet. It better be awesome anyway, because it’s taking up a lot of bathroom real estate.
3. Roof terrace. It’s technically shared by everyone in the building, but it doesn’t seem to get much traffic.
4. Walk-in closet. I have to share with Robin, but it’s as big as my office, so i’m sure we’ll work something out.
5. Cookin’ with gas. I hate electric and ceramic stoves because I burn everything I try to cook on them. So viva la gas. Hope I don’t blow up the place.
6. Furniture from El Rastro. The possiblity of finding stuff like a telephone bench and flat files–if I can manage to get up early enough!
7. Decent internet. A connection that doesn’t require the computer to be at the exact angle of receptitude to function.
