The Empty Apartment

Kids… When I lived in North Carolina, I had the most incredible apartment. Sometimes I like to sit back and think about how great I had it once. I’ll reminisce about the crazy amount of space I had and how little I had to pay and how glorious it was to have my own place. I answered to no one. It was incredible. I cam across these old pictures I took of the place from before I actually moved in. I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed living in them.

Check out the high ceilings. Every room was like that. I estimate them to have been about 15 feet. I was thinking have hanging Christmas lights up there, but I never had access to a really tall ladder. Also, slight fear of falling and hitting the hardwood floors.

This a few of the living room from the window side of the apartment. That's my front door way back in the background. Under the light was where I planned to put the Foosball table. But I never got one of those. Instead I had a traffic light.

This is where the magic happened. And by magic, I mean sleep. That was the only trick I knew for this particular room.

I knew some tricks for this room, but I think they're pretty self explanatory.

Three guesses what happened in this room.

And this is another view of the living room. It felt like such a big place. Definitely had plenty of room for my crap.

I really miss this apartment. It was inside an old cotton mill that had been converted to an apartment building. Thus far, the only thing I’ve found anywhere close to what this was like is a place called The Cotton Mill in nearby Roanoke. But the waiting list is extensive and the rent is just too dang high. Also, I don’t live in Roanoke anymore. So that kind of makes it all a moo point.

  1. This place is amazing!!! I would love to live alone in a place like this! I’d set an easel up by one of those windows and paint my heart out, and a reading chair and bookcase by the other, and when I was tired, I’d just have a mattress flat on the floor and simply stare up at that gorgeous ceiling and think and daydream until I fell asleep. This place looks so perfect.
