apartment update! yaaay

hihihi guys!

so im finally settling in to L.A. fast and well and all is grand over here. i have Skype to thank for getting rid of the huge burden that was not being able to see my mikeycakes for months, and cyber face-to-face chatting is much better than plain phone chatting any day. fur reels. also mike lets roland and mr. fuzzypants into the convo every now and then, too, so it's like i have the whole cuddle club right with me when we're talking :)

anyhows, the apartments are rather pleasant despite being ancient (they were built in 1969...yeah...). i live in a quad with 3 other roomates, meaning 2 people per bedroom. sooo, even though the apt is nice and spacey upon entering, the actual bedrooms are pretty cozy - BUT they have good closet space, so this girl aint complaining! oh and each room gets their own bathroom, huzzah! (thank the big g i didnt ever have to live in a dorm with a community shower...ughh the nightmares) anyways, i'll let the pics say the rest:

my tiny little beddy

my lovely & large sliding mirror closet next to my bed. and yes, that is my queen comforter folded over, and yes i do sleep wrapped up like a burrito every night, cozy as can be :)
oh but dont mind my lack of a bedskirt, i am a gross college student just trying to make it by. u kno...

inside half of my messy closet, the rest of my more casual clothes are shoved into my dresser. yay for adequate clothes space :D

i cant believe i packed 2 huge luggages and these were the only pairs of shoes i could manage to take...i miss you, shoes back home! esp. my boots collections (see you in the winter!)

i have the left side of the dresser with the mirror, so appropriate for my vainass self. yah jk.

practically empty kitchen. someone come cook for me please!

dining room from afar

living room...with NO TV. wahh wtf, so all cable/premium channels are included in tuition but they failed to mention how they took out the acual tvs entirely...

and lastly patty the patio (my 'mates have no idea ive just now named her that, but i think it rings pleasantly)

alright so that's all for our actual apartment today, hopefully have more pics of the fun extra stuff/amenities they have on location - like the pool/jacooz (which i laid by most of today, maybe actually swim in tomorrow), tennis court, volleyball court, etc.

oh but most importantly, i want to thank you for all your warm and welcoming wishes, it really meant a lot and made me less homesick and more at ease. kishes for you! :)

    and wow omg you should go see Ellen's show and make a whole post on it!! I think it'd be so much fun seeing it live! You have to let me know if there's actually an "applause" sign to when you're suppose to applause like how they show them in movies!

  18. How absolutely wonderful!! Have the best year in LA !! The apartment looks great.. and thankfully technology will make the transition easier, except for the missing TV. :\ Well at least they are cheaper anymore..

  19. Super cute, I had those big mirrors in my la apartment, loved them!

  20. Glad you're getting settled! As long as your roommates are fine, it should be fun living with them... and yay for skype! I talk to my parents long-distance via the webcam. So practical! It's a great thing you got a lot of closet space, but I find the no TV thing intolerable. Is there any way you guys can just get rent or buy a cheap machine? The non flat-screen versions should be pretty cheap these days. Look forward to more of your LA updateds. Take care!

  30. hahaha I totally agree with you that bad press is better than no press! I just came back from Toronto and I saw in a boutique store a shirt that says "Kayne is a whiny b*tch" LOL.

I came to your blog to post the wonderful news of my trip to Boston THIS WEEKEND but sadly, you won't be there : ( I was all looking forward to a "bloggers unit" post. < sigh > I will have to save that for some other time I suppose. Enjoy the City of Angels. : )
