I've been searching for the perfect apartment. Yes, I know that probably dones't exist in my price range. However, I'm really excited to move out. I have been living at home for the last 7 months. Don't get me wrong it definitely had its perks, such as: never having to cook a meal (only if I felt like it), free rent, free groceries and someone to do my laundry. I'm really looking forward to making my new apartment (if I find one) my own. I'm pretty picky when it comes to apartments. My ideal place would have all hardwood floors, lots of windows, a fireplace, vaulted ceilings, open kitchen, stark walls and most importantly a dishwasher! I know my ideas are lofty (no pun intended, even though I would kill for a downtown loft) but if I can find a place with just a few of those amenities I think I'll be a happy camper.
