A home

This morning, at 10.17, I signed the contract for my new apartment. A little doodle with a big significance. You never know what will happen, but I'm going to try as hard as I can to make this apartment my base, my home. I have lived 21 different places in 25 years, not counting months of living at people's couches in between homes. This will be my 22nd address, and I do hope it will stay my address for many years. I want to live in Berlin, I want it to happen, but who knows if I will get a job/income once I graduate in January. I might be doomed to be a nomad forever. But here's to hoping for that not happening! Right now I'm just over the moon and looking forward to decorating and to sleep in my own bed for the first time since last fall!
The photo is taken in January 2011 when AnCa and I were house-hunting in Berlin. Same hair, same computer, probably same blouse... Oh well.
