What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Pro: There’s way less to clean. Less space, less cleaning. More happiness.
Con: If one thing is messy, your whole house is messy. In a house with rooms, you can just shut the door on a mess. In a studio, if you leave your laundry out on the bed…well, you look like a slob.
Pro: You’ll get out of the house more. I adore my studio, but it’s just one big room. Getting out of the house is a must.
Con: If you live with another person and are both home at the same time, you are a l w a y s in the same room. I realize that a better wife may have put this under the pros list, but no.
Pro: You’ll accumulate way less junk. We moved into a studio at the end of May, and I am still throwing away stuff from our old apartment that we thought we needed. Here’s the thing: If there’s space, you’ll fill it. If there’s not, well, you won’t.
Con: Unless you’ve lived in a studio before, you’ll most likely have to get rid of at least half of your stuff. This ended up being a pro for me–I had entirely too much crap–but it can be overwhelming at first.
Pro: Way less steps to the coffee maker in the morning. Bonus points if you set your coffee for the night before, because it’s really great to wake up to your entire apartment smelling like coffee.
Con: It’s a little difficult to have pets. I have a really small dog, so it’s the perfect amount of space for him. If he was any bigger, though, I’d feel really guilty about the lack of space for him to run around in.
