I lucked out and happened to move to a studio in Chelsea right before this whole thing happened and it was an AMAZING decision. I love my space and even though there is so much wrong with the world I’m able to remain optimistic and I think moving to an apartment I love was such a huge part of that.

I would say try your best to have three separate areas — one for work, one for lounging, and one for sleeping. My space is one big room rather than one of those weird chopped up floor plans and I thought that made it really easy to segment the way I wanted.

I also invested in nice kitchen stuff, a nice tv, and some basic gym equipment to up the number of activities easily accessible to me.


Look on Pinterest, random home improvement blogs, and furniture companies for inspo! Many have “small space idea” sections that help

There are a lot on Instagram. I’m rethinking my space in that once my lease expires, Time to move to an income tax free state!

What skills did you obtain or sharpen through getting an MBA?

I is confused
