Well congratulations! Not too many months ago you were marching in the line with all the others wearing a cap and gown to receive that precious sheepskin that you worked untold days and years to obtain. Then you moved your precious personal goods – barely enough to fill the back of your dad’s old SUV – and drove out of the dorm parking lot for the last time. The years of undergraduate school were an experience that was fun and rewarding, with many new acquaintances and experiences you will call upon often in your future.
Today you’ve begun that next stage in your life by finding the apartment you will be renting for the next few years. No more dormitory living – you’ll now have a small but comfortable place with kitchen and bath, bedroom and living room. Anything larger would strain your finances. Your furniture has been obtained from various second-hand stores, although you did spend some of your limited cash to purchase bath and bedroom supplies and fixtures. And a relative bought you the essential items for your kitchen, including a full set of dishware. And you have acquired various artistic and decorative items for your home using a Groupon coupon to obtain them at good discounts.
Your home looks much more attractive when you hang mounted prints you obtained using an allposters coupon. These prints give your new home an atmosphere of artistic appreciation and sophistication. They may not be valuable first prints, but they serve to make your home feel like a place which welcome those who appreciate creative art. Many of the items you will use to decorate your new home are items that you will find hanging in your home a quarter century in the future, because by then they will have acquired their own value to you that exceeds whatever the item might have cost when you acquired it. But for right now, the combination of comfortable furniture, good lighting, safe surroundings and attractive decoration are just what you need to establish an environment where you can successfully read, study and create writings that will all contribute towards your future graduate studies and ultimate professional career development. Each step you take brings you closer to the achievement of that goal.
