I have an ugly apartment. There, I said it. It's true though. I'm trying to cut down on my complaining lately, but this is not a complaint. It is a mere observation. I have tried my best to decorate it and make it pretty, but it is still a 6 at best. I want a perfect 10, like this dream studio I saw in the New York Times:

Apparently it's basically a shack in the woods with no heating or plumbing, but doesn't it look fantastic? It used to be a hunting lodge until some creative lady stepped in and renovated it herself. And...I'm obsessed. Some day, when I'm a grown up, I want to have my own little space like this. I've already decided that if I move in with my boyfriend, we're going to get a two-bedroom apartment. The second bedroom is going to become my "Woman Cave" to be decorated in a manner similar to the aforementioned shack, and I'm going to go in there to color in my Disney coloring books and get away from my boyfriend playing Call of Duty on his big TV in the living room.
See, you have to have these things figured out ahead of time, or you'll never be happy.
