Now that you know about Ayo’s fantastic co-op living situation it’s time that I share where I live. During our time in Austin we have developed some good friends. Ayo and I both share a great friendship with Noah, one of the leaders of Austin’s acroyoga community and an all-around fun guy. Noah lives in a 2-bedroom house right in the middle of everything in South Austin. When we got back from our summer trip he casually mentioned that his second bedroom was free.
Fast forward a month and I’m renting his second room, complete with a good friend in the room next door, a gymnastics gym in the huge duplex living room, and my own bathroom and shower. It’s been less than a week so far, but I am very happy with the arrangement.
One thing, though: RVs come fully furnished, but bedrooms generally don’t. I have never furnished a place by myself before, so I was in for an experience in setting up my room. After a long scooter ride to IKEA I handed over a solid amount of money and spent the next day putting my room together. I had already ordered an awesome mattress from Keetsa (the queen size Pillow Plus) as well as some great linens from Amazon.com, and I am really happy with how things came together.
There is still work to do in putting final touches on my room, but things are great as they are and I live dangerously close to some of Austin’s great restaurants and food trailer parks.
So that’s my deal around these parts. As I settle in and begin to have a more regular schedule I’ll be sharing what I’m up to and how I am spending my time.
