When Tara Met Blog

I sleep above my kitchen
And I pay an extravagant amount every month to do so--that's a New York City apartment for you!

My friend from Toronto calls the space a "bitchen" meaning a bed in the kitchen, lol.

It's actually kind of fun going up and down the ladder each morning and night. I feel like Belle in Beauty & the Beast when she's in the library searching for a book, or like a fireman. I always wanted a fun bed when I was younger, like a tent bed or a water bed and now I got a loft with ladder, so I guess dreams really do come true. ;)

It does get annoying when you had tea right before going to bed and need to scramble down the ladder in the dark at 3 in the morning.

When sleeping my head is less than a foot away from the ceiling. Luckily I have avoided hitting my head frequently, but I have scratched my knuckles several times when grabbing my sheets and turning over in my sleep. Right now as I type I have two little scabs on my right hand, which look like a cat might have scratched me or as if I decided to punch a wall in a fit of rage.

For some more pictures of my little apartment go to my Dec. 20th post.

I've never seen anything like that. The 'bitchin' looks about the size of my closet here in SC and I probably pay half the amount of rent you are paying.

Yeah, it's definitely a tiny place. I have a cousin who lives in SC too and she brags about how she has a two bedroom apt for less than what I pay. And she's a year younger than me and already has a two bedroom place to herself, not that her age should make a difference, I'm just complaining, lol.

Thanks for stopping by Mark!

I LOVE your little loft! I want to see more pictures, I've always imagined going to live in NYC. It seems SO exciting to me. We were just there last week and I love it.
