Really, it's not much more than a shoebox, but it's my first ever place by myself - a small studio near a local college.

Now to hang my art and move my bed and couch in.

Very cool! Congrats! Smaller is better, imo. Less to clean. Makes you think about what you really need vs. want!

I'm thrilled for you! Cute place, btw.

Congratulations, Zephie, and you beat me by many years. My first ever living alone experience started when I was 66. I love living all by myself, really love it.

I had a really small apartment once and loved it because I was more of a minimalist and I could clean it top to bottom in no time at all! Your apartment looks nice!

I wish I could say I bought it. It's a small apartment in town. I will be working on purchasing a "doll house" next within a couple years.

Right now it has become very clear that I need to be without roommates. I just need a break from living with people.

I've been renting a room for the last year and it's just not working out right now. I also am mid application process to start a masters in ABA. I need a space I can work/study without pressure of having to interact socially outside of the clinic and church.

So, I'm moving from house to apartment this weekend and hopefully starting my masters in January. If it's not January, it'll be in the summer.

Very cute! And such luxury...I see a dishwasher in the right hand corner of the kitchen...

I lived alone for three years before getting married, and I have really enjoyed having that personal autonomy again (one of a few good things that came from being widowed, which, in general, was NOT a good thing).

You can make it just the perfect place for you! Enjoy!

I love the whole place - but that little bookcase is so cute!

My adult dd had roommates for years ó and was so happy when she finally got a place of her own!

Have fun pleasing no one but yourself!

You've been making so many big decisions lately and doing a great job at it! I think this is perfect for you (not that my opinion matters ). I love how you are looking out for yourself and making plans for a future that challenges and fulfills you. Love the apartment!

Congratulations on getting your own place. I learned in college I don't live well with people. I live fine with dogs, but not people.

Enjoy having your own place. There's nothing like it.

It looks really nice! I recently moved into a studio apartment after a break up. I really have learned to love it because it is just enough space for me. Once you get our artwork and your stuff, it will feel nice and cozy!
