I live in a modestly spacious loft in downtown Washington D.C. not by necessity but by choice. I could have chosen a much more elegant abode but it does not sound practical as I am never at home for the majority of the year. I am only there to sleep and probably use it to have a safe place to keep my Spartan belongings in.
I am also of the belief that someday in the near future, I will not be here any longer and instead be on a more metropolitan place, probably in New York or Paris if given the choice. But this place is really no pushover and it really does serve its purpose well.
I have had several big parties here already and this is the de facto hideout and meeting place for all my pal gals. It is located near the center of the state, which means I can go wherever I want in only a short time and it is located in a sort of artist’s haven, so I’m really at the right place for the time being.
I have a humongous bed and a matching sofa that can hold upwards of ten people, so you can imagine how big it really is. I have a big plasma TV, a ref, a side table that contains a very intricately designed vase to put my favorite flowers on, a dining set, a bar, a multifunctional stove, and the most common dining utensils that you can find in any household.
I have the best lightweight luggage that you can find only in the most upscale of shops, I have two closetful of clothes, about two dozen pairs of shoes, an entertainment system, a not so very social Siamese cat, a very nice DSLR camera, and the best travel tripod to go along with it.
I cannot imagine I was able to enumerate every piece of item I have inside my house, it makes me feel a little bit deprived just by thinking about it. Well those are the only things I need anyway and having more stuff would eventually mean a harder time moving out, and I really don’t want that happening.
I almost forgot to mention that I have also a very hardworking laptop, which never leaves my side, and is the keeper of all my musings and designs that will eventually catapult me to new heights. I keep all my plans in it and if it were to be lost, then I don’t know what I would do, which also makes me remember that I have to buy an external hard disk enclosure to have a place to put my backup data on. You never are too sure these days.
Well that’s it. That is the “me” of today, simple, practical, and wise. I don’t know about you, but those traits have been with me for a long time and have already served me well on many occasions. Soon enough I will be adding two more to them, want to know what? Of course, Rich and Famous!
