City Living at Plum Studio

A new course

Today I started a new online MOOC course through Cousera. I’m interested in expanding my skills beyond my current repertoire, so a few free online courses are on my agenda for this summer. The first course: Introduction to Operations Management. 

The course content seems quite basic, but there is some math involved which means it is time to reactivate that section of my brain, which has been dormant for quite some time. It’s only a four week course, so I’m interested to see how long it captures my attention.

Welcome to Plum Studio! (Before pictures)

Here are pictures of my new studio apartment in Philadelphia. I am so excited to be moving in two weeks and plan to take a lot of pictures of the decorating process. Here are the pictures from the current tenant, whose style happens to be minimalist. I’ll be adding lots of colors and cheery elements, including my favorite color, plum.

Surprisingly, the kitchen is quite large (and newly renovated!), but the actual living area/bedroom is a little cramped. I will be putting together some interior design boards for each area, but will have to take some more measurements for each little nook.
