Name: La Nina
I'm a Jersey girl without the big hair or the accent (well, most of the time anyway), but with all of the bad driving and the penchant for weekly manicures.
Oh, and I'm an interior design student. That's how all of the weird terminology comes into play.
Wow, was my last entry really on March 9? Guess so. Y'all have probably assumed that I've dropped off the face of the earth, and you'd be half right. Anyway, sorry things have been a bit quiet on the blog front as of late and that I haven't been able to visit sites as much as I'd like to.
Now that I've been accepted at grad school, all of my energies have been focused on preparing for the big move to Boston, most notably the sale of my apartment.
I was prepared to do some major work on the place à la "Designed to Sell" including a bathtub refinishing job, a new refrigerator, and a closet organizing system. Not necessary, sayeth my realtor. "Just repaint that emerald green bathroom a respectable color," is my only command ("What on earth is it with her and green?!" the masses cry. I plead the fifth.). On one level, I was a little bummed that the improvements weren't happening so that I might practice my skills. On many, many other levels, I knew dang well that I didn't have the time, energy, or finances to do any of these things. Goodness knows I'll get my practice in soon enough.
Now for the awesomeness.
My apartment has been on the market since last Wednesday (the 16th). I've already had two offers, and we're holding out until tomorrow in order to see what else comes in before determining whose offer is the best. I am absolutely amazed that this is all happening in less than a week.
At this rate, it will be the end of May before I can blink. Wish me luck.
