After driving 150 miles and 4+ hours a day for my commute, I finally snapped. I just can't do this anymore. My social & personal life has taken a steep decline and it's taking a massive toll on my personal life. I've always firmly believed that having a fruitful personal life is what keeps me going in my professional life. Not everyone is lucky enough to be in love with their job 100% of the time - don't get me wrong, I enjoy my job but let's be realistic, I'm not always that excited about it. My commute is costly financially but the most important things I'm sacrificing are things I can't put a price on; my relationships, my hobbies, my continuing education (ok, so you can put a price on that. Ivy League education ain't cheap) and finally, my sleep/health.
So I decided to move to downtown L.A in January!!!!!!
Originally, Adam and I were planning on getting a condo in DTLA together but since he owns the house, it's going to take a while to renovate some parts, clean, rent out and move out - that could take months and a lot of money. I don't want to pressure Adam into expediting that process either, so I decided to get myself a 'crash pad' if you will. I found a few studio lofts in the heart of DTLA and I'm thrilled! Yay, a light at the end of the tunnel!
I think studio loft apartments are so adorable and I can't wait to move into one. I love our house and all but it'll be fun to have my own place - maybe the last place I'll have that's my own!
Like in my set above, I'm thinking of a black/grey/gold/white color combination for my studio. It's just so chic and modern. I'm really not that into interior designing or decorating but I'm still pretty freaking excited.
Stay tuned for updates.....xoxo
