my room

I have spent the past 4 days at home.  I got food poisoning Tuesday and then slid down the hilly road in front of my apartment Wednesday while buying groceries to cook innocuous food for myself, injuring my foot and my knee.  Since my apartment is my entire scenery these days (so thankful for friends who come by bringing porridge, bandaids and first aid cream, home made apple sauce, multi out cables and adaptors, and something else so awesome that it sort of deserves its own post) I thought maybe what better time than to show you my little place.  The photos were of course taken a while ago.  My hair is shorter now and my legs are all bandaged.  But anyway.

Hello would you like a tour of tiny loft apartment?

I still have a lot of ideas for decorating but this is what it looks like so far.  My place is basically a 1st grader’s dream.  It has a ladder!  It has a secret fort!  There’s a traditional Japanese style futon floor bed, but with Barbie bedding  (it was a gift from a 2nd cousin when I was 7, I found it while digging through closets at home)!  But truthfully, I am on the lookout for a Spiderman bedding.  It would still go with the 1st grader theme of my apartment.

Moving along, no room of mine is complete without piles of magazines and books.  I’m so happy to once again have access to Zipper and spoon and furthermore I live by a 24 hour book/magazine store.  And I have a little kitchen.

My first weekend after moving in, I visited my neighborhood Tokyu Hands and returned with an armful of art supplies, and used them straight away to paint this pink flowery explosion.  I have so much wall space so I want to make many more paintings.

How do I climb up the ladder to my loftbed now that I am injured you ask?  Verrrrry very slowly.

    Awww, poor Amy. Drink lots of fluids and don’t take any of the anti-diarrhea meds — those can make it last longer. Feel better soon!

    Lol, I love the jutxtaposition of Barbie, Lolita,Doreamon, and the magazines.

    It’s a super cute place. I can only hope my overpriced apartment for next year will be similar, lol.
