We're moving


(No, we're not moving to LA. But I can guarantee you that we will be moving there before I'm 25.) 

I'm literally just throwing this little post up because I feel like I HAVE to tell you guys about what's going on in my life right now. Like, honestly, though, shit is about to get super cray. 

Maxim and I are moving. Right now, we live in the straight-up SUBURBS of DC, and it's a long-ish commute to downtown. It was cute for a while, and I adore our apartment and the "Town Center" that we live in. BUT, both Maxim and I have events almost every night, and it's become too much to drive/metro/uber at 11 p.m. back to our apartment 25 miles away. 


We're moving to {apparently} one of the most hipster places to live — Arlington (I strongly disagree with this rating. Like if we're looking at benchmarks, Arlington is definitely on the lower half of the hipster scale). And we're moving in less than 10 days. 

We literally signed the lease last night while sitting on the couch. And on Sunday, we weren't even planning on moving. But it popped up on Facebook and we were like "why not?" The place is much smaller than our current apartment, but we needed to downsize. 


When I first moved in with Maxim, I thought he had a one-bedroom apartment with two bathrooms. Totally normal, I thought. I went on with my life, no worries. THEN ONE DAY, the {always locked} door that I thought was, like, for the boiler room or whatever, was unlocked. And I just opened it and I know you guys know what happened. THERE WAS A SECOND BEDROOM. But not just a second bedroom — it was literally being used as a room filled with, like, junk. Straight-up boxes of stuff that I've never seen Maxim touch. EVER. And the room is STILL used as a storage room.

My name for it is the "mierda room." 

So now that we're moving, Maxim and I are taking the time to just PURGE. And by purge, I mean we're selling stuff, donating stuff and throwing away A LOT of stuff. Like, honestly, though, we're selling almost all of our furniture and I've already thrown out like five HUGE bags of pure mierda. I'll be sure to keep you updated as the move continues, but I just had to share! 

BUTTTTT....Have you guys ever gone through a giant clear out before? What worked and what didn't? Let me know in the comments below or on social!
