When one is broke there is an often an overwhelming urge to redecorate one’s small living space – but it’s a catch-22, isn’t it? I want my life to look different/I have no money to change my life.
Therefore I took the curtains off my windows and have decided it has created an airy, fresh sense of space in my room. This is the first improvement which I am mentally over-exaggerating since it leads to a real sense of accomplishment.
The second improvement is a new shower curtain. The old one was a little short and a lot mildewed and I grew concerned when I saw Havana sniffing the mildew with fervor. What if mildewed shower curtains is like kitten cocaine? What if she got feline black lung?
The third improvement is most exciting: I now have somewhere to sit that is separate from where I sleep. Not only can I use it to sit on, there’s space to store piles of books and Havana has an entire ‘cat fort’ underneath it. What is this amazing piece of multi-tasking furniture?
A park bench.
