Everyone…that apartment I viewed yesterday was perfect. Okay, not perfect, but it has all the amenities I was looking for. The three C’s/K’s: Cat, Kitchen, Car. In other words, full kitchen (minus a fridge), WillyBean-approved living, and parking.
Here are some of the downsides: It’s kind of a basement apartment, so it’s a bit dark. I’ve been looking at some design options though and think it might be fun to work with. I’m not sure if it’s set up for cable/wifi, and there isn’t a refrigerator, but that’s an easy fix.
Now for the positives: It’s a 15 min walk from a bustling shopping area, lots of coffee shops, bars, and *drum roll* a FARMER’S MARKET! The fact that it’s so close to coffee shops may solve the no wifi issue. There is a walk in closet. I can access my apartment from the parking garage, meaning I don’t have to step foot on the street when it’s dark outside (one of my legit concerns). A stove and oven! After living off a hot plate all last year this is epic! It’s a HUGE studio apartment, biggest one I will have ever lived in. And ample space for a nice new cat tree for The Bean, who has suffered in miniature apartments without a tree since I’ve had him.
Here are some pics of the place…yeah the flooring is a bit funky too, but it gives it a little personality right?
*Can’t get this stupid picture to center…still figuring out this format theme.*
I also started applying for some jobs in the area. Most of them I’d be able to walk to, which would just be heaven for me. I love walking, especially when the weather is so nice.
So, now we just wait for my apartment application to be approved.
Oh yeah, side note: I parallel parked yesterday like a BAWSE. I think I’m getting the hang of this L.A. thing. Until next time…
