Yesterday was finally the day that I got to move into my apartment building. For the past three weeks I have been living in a hotel room since the construction on the new apartment building was not complete. Those three weeks went by much faster than I expected, but boy am I glad to be in my apartment. After living in old, beat up dorms for the past few years, it is nice to be in a place that is shiny, clean, and new!
Mom drove down with all of my apartment things I left at home and helped me move everything in. I don’t know what I would have done without her! We got up bright and early yesterday morning and drove our bursting cars from the hotel to the new building. I got checked in and we began our endless trips up to the room with all my stuff. Looking back, I’m not sure how everything in my room fit into our cars. Anyway, we spent the entire day unpacking and Target shopping for everything I needed to organize and decorate my room.

This is my first year in college that I have a bedroom all to myself. Better yet, I have a full size bed, not a tiny twin bed that everything falls off of (including my limbs)! Now that everything is in place, I absolutely love it. It is so cozy and nice that I may never leave (at least until I have to go to class tomorrow). Normally I can’t study in my bedroom, but I spent the whole day today studying for my biochemistry test on my brand new, huge desk and I have been super productive.
With a new apartment also comes a brand new kitchen. I couldn’t wait to test it out so I made myself a nice breakfast this morning. I haven’t gone grocery shopping yet so I didn’t have many options, but I did have some eggs and veggies so an omelet it was. I’m pretty sure that omelet I made was the best one I have ever made. It didn’t crumble or fall apart at all, and I flipped it over in the pan by doing that little toss that chefs do. It may sound silly, but that was probably the highlight of my day.
Until my biochemistry test is over on Tuesday I won’t be doing much cooking, but I am excited to make some new recipes to share with you. Stay tuned for more on my first apartment and my experiences cooking for myself!
