It’s Friday. The end to a very long week is finally here — though I can’t tell if it’s been a long week because of work, or because I’ve been anxiously waiting (since last weekend) to apartment hunt this Saturday. Yes, I am apartment hunting. I haven’t made a firm decision on whether I’ll be moving, so I’m looking around “just in case.” Unlike most of my friends who hate apartment hunting, I absolutely love it. I’m certain that it comes from my love of HGTV shows like House Hunters, My First Place or For Rent — but there’s nothing wrong with that, right? No shame.
Anyway, I hope you have a lovely weekend. Make sure you take the time to look at these good reads:
