It was around three weeks ago, and it was really difficult in retrospect. First, moving out of the top of a five story walk up, without the help of any movers, just you and your bf, is already pretty tough. We spread it out over 2 or 3 days, and oh boy was there a lot of up and downs! ... Then a mix of the cold and flu hit me for 4 days, and just when I was almost all recovered, it was "that time-a-the-month". Now that all that is over, I can focus on the more enjoyable aspects of moving.
I was hoping to get everything mounted this past weekend, but all we managed were a set of curtains! I think we needed a weekend of mainly rest after all the hard work and sickness.

Why yes, I am reading Moby Dick, and have been on and off for the past several months! It's a very funny book when it is not busy overwhelming you with its sheer bulk of words.
These also need to find a home somewhere on the ceiling:

This is our one completed project! A very important one too as our window looks directly into another person's window which tends to make me get twitchy and self-conscious. These curtains are from Modcloth. Lovely color and pattern! I was hoping to get another set to match but alas, they don't sell it anymore, and even when I googled the specific brand, none were to be found.
Some future plans for our little 1-bedroom apartment :
1) A tiny couch. Leaning towards this one from MUJI.
2) Building a sleeping loft (!!!)
3) A small kitchen table, preferably drop-leaf, preferably this one from Etsy seller 'Envy Alley'.
From time to time, I tend to get bouts of impatience for everything to be done and settled already. Yes these types of things take time. In fact, I think that in decorating a living space, the slower it comes together the better. It gives one time to find the right thing needed for the space/function. It feels like a natural growing process, and probably shouldn't be rushed.
