I volunteer to help put furniture together. I love it.


You're insane.


Be nice to my new best friend :evil:

JFo, I'm pretty sure you would love my mother. And she would love you. I'm also pretty sure she'd require copious amounts of wine when assembling IKEA stuff hahaha.


:oops: yes ma'am.

I have a serious problem. Why can't I stop looking at furniture and do my homework??
:(

+1. Life five months from now is totally trumping the obligations of the present.

I also volunteer to help assemble (IKEA) furniture. I totally turned a bookcase into an entertainment center last year bc all the entertainment centers cost more than I wanted to pay.

I started with this bookcase: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10103088, flipped it on its side, and attached the shelves differently to create a rectangular section in the middle for DVD player/cable box/etc.

Final product (decorated for the holidays :D):

The stockings are sort of obstructing the view of the shelves, but you get the idea.

...you mean, some people do it without wine?

I'm serious though, I will help you all put furniture together. I'm not even kidding a little bit. The little man in the Ikea instructions is my homeboy.

Eta: afcanoe, if there was a place that would let us have five pets, I would live with you in furniture-constructing, animal-petting joy.

Ode Part II: In Which We Wait

A law school has stolen my heart,
Yet for five more months we'll be apart,
I'll count down the days
And wait with malaise
Can't wait for September to start!

I <3 limericks...especially this one. :D

SO excited!! When are you guys planning on getting to Chicago? I'm leaning towards a Sept 1 lease so I can have time to adjust to the city/get the hell out of my parent's house.

Where do you think you're going to live? Have you figured that part out yet?

This is Dany's best friend. You should see the unicorn design she has on the back of her denim jacket.

Oooh, oooh! I definitely did this to an IKEA dresser with some pretty knobs from Anthropologie. :) We were all clearly destined to be together.

Not really. A good number of us have applied to Regents, but will be looking for other places ~2 months out when landlord people know which units will be available come September.

And I think my awesome roomie and I are going to move in Sept. 1, too. It'll be nice to get settled in early!!

I'm hoping to find someone who has a car in Regents so we can go grocery shopping together and maybe even carpool to school.

I'm probably moving in around the firs. I, too, want to get used to the city. I'm kind of dreading driving up with a 40 pound dog, a 75 pound dog, and a 12 pound cat in a tiny Corrolla. I hope they don't realize they could unite and overpower me. I may drug them.

I'm thinking of living in one of the MAC properties, though I may call Regents to see about pet policies.

Yeah, I only applied to Regents to secure a 1 br as a safety. Depending on what I can find online, I might go back up this summer to tour some more places. The only problem I'm having is that the places that I like are about $400-500 more per month, so right now Regents is still looking like the default.

It says they allow pets, just doesn't say if they allow them in the law school block.

Yeah, the problem is that it's a two pet limit, but I'm going to see about negotiating.
