This is my living room.
Yes, I have been living here for a month and some days and still don't have living room furniture. We have basically been using the place as a studio - living in mainly the bedroom. I'm getting some more counter space for the kitchen today and will be more comfortable using that space after that happens - I even plan to cook my first meal in the apartment afterward.
Today, on our third day off of the year from Jewish holidays, I am going to go to Target to get some sort of organizer to put into the bedroom. Not sure how I will carry the item(s) back home on the subway and the walk to the crib - may have to get a cab if it is not too expensive.
I have the yoga mat for morning centering/sanity and for sitting when I am grading or planning for school - though, some of that, too happens in the bedroom (which I hate since I like it to just be for sleeping). I have my two teacher bags sitting neatly on the floor. I need to get a couch, but I'm not sure when that will happen due to money and me not being home for it to be delivered. I would like to get a desk, but that is not a necessity since I have never used one in places I have lived.
The television has been watched for a total of about two hours in the month and a week since I have been in NYC. Crazy since I used to be watching tv from the time I got home from work until the time I went to bed - at least 5-7 hours each day.
I am going to have the cable cut off and just keep the internet.
