I thought it would be fun to talk about things we’ve done/would like to do with our living space.
I recently moved into a different, smaller apartment after a V MESSY breakup, and I’m working on getting it to be comfortable. I’ve made good progress so far. The apartment is teeny-tiny, not enough space to entertain people I’m not sleeping with, so I’ve run coax and cat6 cables into the bedroom, where I’ve established what I will refer to as the Entertainment Stronghold. I’ve got my TV, game consoles, and Steam Link all set up so I can have all my screen-based entertainment in one place. Actually sitting down at the PC is now reserved for like flight simulators. Other steps I’ve taken in the bedroom include: blackout curtains, because it’s the city and the street lights are a bit much to try and sleep through, especially now that they can reflect off of snow; a soundbar with a subwoofer, so I can get halfway decent sound out of my TV.
Things I’d like to do in the near future:
I need to get some end tables or something to put by my bed. I want more shelves and surfaces, in general, also, because I want to get a bunch of house plants throughout the apartment to make the place a bit less dreary, maybe even get an indoor herb garden going. I’d also like to get some of those little electric paper lanterns to string around the ceilings. The goal is to turn the apartment into a pleasant mood lighting zone at night, which is when I’m mostly home 5 days a week, anyway.
