Unpacked and Put Away near Palm Trees

So I am proud to say that it took me only two full days and I am officially all moved in! I do still have two boxes of books that need to be unpacked but I am waiting till I get my book case made. I am happy to announce that I have found plenty of space for everything. I think it just looks like I have a lot of stuff but really its average. Really!
My awesome new roommates, Swati and Gina did an amazing job of clearing out a few cupboards and drawers throughout the house for me. There really is a lot of storage space in this house! You should see the kitchen cupboards! It's incredible! The three of us will never have enough stuff to pack it.

Now I can focus on the details of my room, putting up pictures and artwork. My bathroom is kinda small so I need to organize it better too. While I may have a smallish bathroom, Swati and Gina share one, and I would much rather have my own bathroom so I think I lucked out on that.

Oh, here is my first LA observation which isn't so much solely about LA but something that Arizona did not have and that is lots and lots of green plants everywhere! I love all the beautiful green palm trees outside my window. They are healthy green, not dry and thirsty green. Real grass in all the lawns is a treat to see too. Our backyard is really nice. There is a huge umbrella and under it are a couple lounge chairs and a grill. I look forward to sitting out there in the summers and catching some rays.
I am sure that eventually I'll miss seeing cactus and the desert environment but probably not for awhile.

Well, I am not a visitor anymore and I certainly do not plan on ever getting on an ambulance here either. So, here's to staying safe on these big bad LA streets!

  1. Way to go on unpacking and settling in so quickly. I knew you, don't you feel better. I would opt for my own bathroom too. Total score!!

    The greenery is a nice change from the desert, enjoy all the free oxygen...oh, wait, you do live in one of the smoggiest cities in the world now. :) xoxo
