True to my nature I get overly excited about something even though it’s not going to happen in the near future. Recently I’ve started seriously thinking about moving out. This coming December I’ve saved for 2 years which is the minimum, but I definitely don’t have the planned 12 000€ saved yet. On Monday I’m going to the bank to change my monthly deposit but I’m afraid I’m stuck here for quite a while. On Wednesday I told my boss that I want a raise, but we’ll see…
I already know that I won’t live in a studio; I want separate bedroom and living-room. The other night I couldn’t sleep, instead I started thinking what I need for my own place.
(Even though I have a bed I’m going to buy a proper one and leave my current bed here for visitors.)
- couch (sofa bed?)
- TV (and sidekicks)
- subscription to some sort of TV guide (I’m a program circler)
- desk (I hope I don’t need a separate desk because I already have a computer desk)
- Internet connection
- phone (i.e. cell phone)
- kitchen table + chairs
(Ticked off on Sep 23. I don’t have to buy a fridge-freezer. It’s already there!)
- coffee maker
(Ticked off on Sep 23. We have 3 coffee makers. Mum says I can take one of them )
- microwave oven
- wall clock
- washing machine
- vacuum cleaner
- iron + ironing board
- 1 mug, 1 plate, 1 fork, 1 spoon, 1 knife, 1 cereal bowl OK, maybe something to make food in, too
(Comment on Sep 23) Mum bought me a set of utensils for my nameday (in July). It has 6 forks, 6 knives, 6 big spoons, and 6 coffee spoons. Plus a cake cutter (?) and salad servers.
My mug collection is huge and I have 4 or 6 cereal bowls (which double as soup plates). And mum has apparently bought me 4 soup plates.
(Comment on Dec Grandpa bought me 6 dinner plates and oven pan (for lasagne etc.) for early Xmas present.
- a nice big plant (something looking like this)
- sheets, towels, carpets of course
Hmm… What else?
I’ve decided I want to find a nice couch first. After that it’s easy to find curtains and such things. Wow, I can’t imagine a toilet without an orange sink. Don’t believe I have one?
I don’t undestand what the previous occupants where thinking! A very good reason for wanting to get out of here, don’t you think?
