I do not know what worldly possessions I am working towards. When I stand still, what style home am I living in? What objects do I use to define myself? How will I measure success? Where do I want to live? Living in wintry Upstate New York, has given me a desire to live somewhere with only 3 seasons – spring, summer, and fall. I’d be willing to go as far south as Virginia. It would need to be a metropolitan area because I enjoy the culture that is provided. A metropolis would also allow for me to not need a car, and I could rely on public transportation such as a subway or elevated train. The essential question is: where do I see myself inn 5, 10, or 15 years? The future isn’t something that I have put much thought into.
My dream home is a bungalow that is a handsome u-shaped Italian Renaissance Revival-style exterior face of brown brick, sandstone, and panels of terracotta details. A geometric wrought iron fence encases the backyard’s coy pond and fountain. The courtyard reaches inside flooding the bungalow, creating ever-changing shadows and accents. The porch is pale glazed brick, ornamental cast iron, Mexican floor tiles, and polished wood.
