Hey ya'll!  I've been a bit spare lately cause shit be CRAZY around here.  First off - thank you to everyone who left nice notes in the last entry!  I haven't gotten to respond to all of them but I very much appreciated them.

In the same week I got a new title, I also snagged a new apartment!  A studio apartment in walking distance to work, and just two blocks away from the Ebay campus.  Good stuff :D

Actually, very importantly, within walking distance there is:

(a) Whole Foods
(b) Trader Joe's
(c) Barnes and Noble
(d) Noah's Bagels (the only decent bagel chain in the area)
(e) KNITTING SHOP
(f) Panera Bread
(g) Frye's Electronics
(h) Game Stop
(i) my gym
(j) Hooters

Well, while all of that is within walking distance, it's going to be more comfortable in the long run if I get a bicycle.  So I'll get on that in March or whenever, this month is going to be bananas with the move and with the VACATION TO EAST COAST for the latter half of it.  

SO I AM SOLICITING INFORMATION FROM YA'LL in three questions:

(1) What are some important supplies to have when you immediately move into a new place?   I have basic cleaning supplies already, but what else would you recommend?

(2) Given the shape of the room, do you have any recommendations as to how to place room dividers?  I have a double-sized bed that I would want to section off with screens and/or bookcases, I'm just wondering where would be the best place.  So far I'm thinking of putting the bed against the kitchen-wall length-wise, to minimize the chance of hearing noise from the neighbors to the left and from the courtyard.  

(3) ANY RAD FURNITURE RECOMMENDATIONS?

K found this - http://www.target.com/p/Exotic-Retreat-Bookcase-Room-Divider/-/A-10145279#?lnk=sc_qi_detaillink ; RAD BOOKSHELF

I like this case as well: http://www.target.com/p/Dolce-4-Shelf-Folding-Bookcase-Dark-Walnut/-/A-608712#?lnk=sc_qi_detaillink

And then there is a daybed from West Elm I reaaaaaaaaaaally like: http://www.westelm.com/products/window-daybed-g093/?pkey=e|daybed|8|best|0|1|24||1&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules-_-  

I'm thinking of keeping the furniture dark brown/black for the living space, and for colors I want to go for are black, white, gold, and red, with the intention to put a lot of prints in there for interest.  I don't need to get furniture immediately (mostly cause I won't be around that much till March), so there is time to stew and think over possibilities.  Also, I'm way excited to design the patio and kitchen, as I've never had either of those before XD
