there are things i want, things i will never own.
i watch friends get their own homes, and begin decorating. i watch them buy beautiful things liberally, in a way i cannot. not because i cannot afford it, but because my future lifestle cannot support it.
i might like a pretty vanity, with large drawers to store my makeup, but living in a small new york apartment is not going to make that practical. a studio will barely have the room for a futon, and perhaps a bookcase. combined with the fact that i will initially, and for the long-term have roommates, i just don’t need all these things.
there are many options, of course. i can have that house, if i go the way of queens. i could rent a three-bedroom with roommates. i could rent a studio by myself, or with another. it all comes down to how i would be happier, and what i would be able to realistically afford.
that alice in wonderland teacup bookshelf just isn’t in the …ah, cards.
