Even in my previous apartment, I had a few prints hung on my wall and that was about it. I had some posters in college and maybe some string lights, but that was about the extent that my decorating would go.

I can stare at pretty interiors all day but to me, it just seems unachievable. Part of the reason is probably that I don't want to put the money into it because I go through so many phases in my life with literally everything that I don't trust myself to pick (a) timeless pieces or (b) pieces that I won't just get sick of two weeks later like I do with everything else.
