First Apartment Wishlist + Priorities Questionnaire

Hello, beautiful! If you've been following my college journey on Haley Marie Blog for the past two years, you know my time as an undergrad at Boston University is about to come to a close in May 2019. (Yep, that's a year early, for those of you who might be wondering...cuz I'm just that good! LOL, JK - although I am seriously graduating early....)

For me, graduating means a lot of big life transitions. Not only will I be getting a grown-up job (#adulting) while studying for law school on the side, but I'm also planning a big move-in with my long-distance boyfriend in his home city of Cleveland, OH.

As an East Coast girl through-and-through, adjusting to Midwest culture while exploring an entirely new city together is going to be a huge stepping stone for me on my journey into adulthood. And as excited as I am to share this experience with David, I have to admit that I'm a little nervous to make this giant leap into the next chapter of my life.

One part of adulthood I am excited about, though? Apartment shopping! Daydreaming about our new place on Pinterest is one of my favorite ways to banish the senior scaries when I start to panic about my impending graduation....hence this wishlist detailing all the cutest home decor a girl could ever ask for.

Plus, as a reward for bearing with me as I walk you through this vivid dream of mine, I'll be sharing a helpful Apartment Priorities Questionnaire to help you and your roommate(s) or partner find your dream place in a pinch. Whether you're looking for a quiet two-bedroom in the suburbs or a quaint studio apartment in the big city, this free printable will help you narrow down your apartment search from positively overwhelming to slightly more bearable.

So, without further ado, let's give three cheers for free printables - and three cheers for decorating the perfect apartment! Let's get started, shall we?
