So here I am (taking a 5-30 minutes break), enjoying my Chips More and a cup of over sweetened hot Milo, and I'm gonna blab about my new home back in Dublin!
I never got to blog about it so here we go. We settled into the loveliest lemon yellow coloured house, a couple kilometres away from campus. It is nothing less than perfect and it took a lot of work. Without going into the uninteresting tale of how I finally got the place, let's just go into the fun-ish stuff. We set a price on each room so it'd be fair, so I chose the (furniture-less) living room! Its on the ground floor and next to the kitchen plus I'll have my very own patio!
Not that I'm gonna step outside admiring the 'greenery' every second of the day but there's something about a huge sliding door in the room, (meaning more natural lighting heh heh) that makes the room a major plus for me. Since the landlord decided to pay for the furniture in the room, I decided to get a little creative. But we had a budget, so...cheap but creative....creative-ish.
Naturally, we went to IKEA to get all the stuff and being cheap asians, we decided to assemble the furniture ourselves, instead of well, paying 35 euros for people to do it.
