Hm, doesn't seem like this community is very active... xD But I think it's a fantastic idea! I'm 20-year-old Orlando, FL resident and am moving into my first apartment in a little under three weeks. Obviously, I am both nervous and excited. It'll not only be affordable for me and will let me keep my dogs (which are large breeds; rare for an apartment complex)... but best of all, I will FINALLY be able to get away from my crazy mother. We are driving eachother insane.

Otherwise, I'm pretty fond of interior decorating and diy-projects, so I am REALLY looking forward to that aspect. My dream is to have my home themed after world travel (okay, so I set short-term goals... sue me x3). So far, I have an Asian-themed bedroom and an African-themed bathroom (from my mother's house, the decor of which I am bringing with me since I purchased almost all of it over the years). For the living room I am considering something more broad and adventurous, like the hub of the house, with posters of old-looking maps and travel advertisement posters. Like 'Visit beautiful Maui!', etc... basically like a travel agency office xD I've also already found a lot of bargains on items that are coffee-shop themed and I think that might be a nice idea for the kitchen/dining area. I'm not sure what I'll do for the guest bathroom (which would be my future roommates'), but I think it's a toss-up between something Carribean or something frivilous, like rubber duckies. I'm preferably aiming for the former. x3

Other than that, if anyone can offer any tips... it would be great! Any of you had a sort of house-warming party? I think that may be an interesting way to get new decor and such w/o having to blow my own money on it xD I'm already good on appliances and necessities since I've been preparing for this for several months... but since this is my first place, I'd love to make it my own in the most financially wise way possible. The only things I will be leaving untouched are the two spare bedrooms that will be fare game for two of my friends (how I got stuck with a 3-bedroom is another story entirely... >___>; in the long-run, though, it did work out better).. but otherwise, the world is my canvas! :D

... hi. ^.^
