It just hit me that I'm living in an apartment...yet I still don't feel like an "adult." It's a lot harder than I had originally imagined. Living in dorms avoids groceries and cooking, which can be fun some times, but some days are so busy that I just don't have the time or, rather, the desire to cook a meal. I also forgot that, unlike the dorms, there is no furniture in the apartment. Luckily, the guys helped us out a lot during the moving and building process. Regardless, I am enjoying the freedom, and it forces me to grow up even more.
On the other hand, I'm beginning to feel a little more artsy these days so I'm finally beginning to decorate my room slowly. Whenever we finish decorating, my real excitement of living in the apartment will begin! While it's still summer, there are a bunch of places I'd like to visit before fall semester begins. I cannot wait to see the parts of North Berkeley and San Francisco I haven't seen yet.
And this is my view from the balcony:
