Welcome all to my first blog post from the new apartment in Sheffield, England!
The apartment has been giving me the runaround for the last couple of months (thanks to a series of miscommunications with the developers), but now that I’m here and moved in, I can truthfully say it was well worth the effort!
Having a small studio apartment located in the heart of Sheffield means I am a stone’s throw from the Moor Markets and (my personal favorite) Sheffield Hallam University. I can come back after a night out or walk back from my university classes, without having to worry about catching public transport – which, trust me, after almost two years of one-and-a-half hour commutes to university in Australia (one way) is a true clincher.
As an added bonus, the apartment is brand new, furnished and catches the morning sunrise. What more could a person ask for…? Hint: not much. The only thing I wish it had were a little more power plugs in the kitchen (two is not nearly enough!) – but other than that, the place is (for me) absolute perfection.
I’ve decorated the apartment with the colors white, black and red in mind – although time will tell if that decision will last. I’ve purchased red-colored dishcloths, washing liquid and (soon-to-be) towels. The only issue with the theme so far is the white bedsheet cover I bought with pale, yellow flowers (I couldn’t walk past its bargain price). But, I think a tasteful white, red and yellow pillow will tie the whole polite mess together.
