I'm blow away by how nice my new home and my new studio are. This is really swank, classy living with private decks on two different ends of the building. Did I mention there is a skylight right over my bath tub? I get to take a bath under the stars!! I am about to be SO spoiled! And the studio, while small, is really nice. I guess I didn't realize how nice until I heard one of my instructor trainees tell one of my students how "swank" the new studio is. The bathroom is really nice. And NO other retail space I looked at had a bathroom this nice. I can really be proud of this space. And having something to be proud of, especially when I worked hard for it, makes me feel rewarded.
I am also realizing that there might actually be enough closet space for me if I'm willing to not hang my coats in the closet. I think I counted a total of 12 coats I own (Winter coats, Summer jackets, goth coats, rain coats, formal coats, etc.). I can put up pegs or a couple coat stands somewhere and hang them all up that way. That clears up an entire small closet for clothes. All I need to add is a very small black dresser (maybe three drawers) in the bedroom for my girlie under things. I'll look on Craig's List for one of those.
