So after living with various roomates for four years I decided to get a 1 bedroom apartment. Its partly inspired with one of my roomates having an issue with my girlfriend (long story but I guess shes supposed to be in love with him and not me... weird any who) and that I will be moving away from the campus area for an internship this summer and then returning to OSU for only one more term of school before I graduate.

So the question is what do I need. I have most things I think but what are some of the things you thought were good to have once you were really by yourself.

I have,
Bed, Desk, coffee table, tv, tv stand, vcr, phone, surround sound, couch, recliner, multiple lights, plenty of art (like there could be enough), dishes, towels, utensils, dresser, bookshelf, magazine rack, welcome mat, shower mat, toilet mat thingy, shower head item holder, garbage can, vac cleaner....

I think the only things I really need are:
Cookware, glasses, DVD player, DVD rack, Wine rack, wine glass rack, broom, mop, mini barbeque...

So what am I missing, what are things that I cant live without... I want to buy a projector to use as a tv but I think I can live with my current tv...

And on a side note. have many of you had fish tanks in your apartments or are most landlords picky about that? I have 90 gallon saltwater tank with living rock that is amazing and I would hate to give that up...

TIA!!!

If you're the introspective sort... make sure you have social activities planned. Some people don't do well in a solitary environment: too much time to sit and think.

Oh ya, Agent Smith loves those Desert Eagles.

Anywho, you have more stuff than I did when I got my first pad.

Only thing I don't see is a nice Kitchen Aid stailess body/glass jar blender, for vodka optional smoothies....

Dude, get yourself a deodorizer for your closet. You won't notice how bad it gets to smelling until someone else tells you so. (This goes for women too.)

Why would a closet smell?

I guess it's mostly from the shoes or any uncovered laundry that are kept in there. either that or the blow-up dolls....

Do the projector if you can swing it!

I'm a proud owner of a SharpVision XV-Z10000U, and I love it!
Or if you can't afford gig's taste..which btw, his projector kicks major booty.

You could look into the In Focus ScreenPlay 4800 DLP for less than $2k. It's not anywhere near comparable to gig's but for most people they would be satisfied.

You'll figure out what you'll need after the first week.
You should put a list together as you go. (cleaning supplies, etc.)
For some reason, whenever we move, we always forget to buy a new shower curtain. :???:
And yes, I would leave out the fact that you have a 90 gal freakin' fish tank !
Usually anything over ten gallons is a no-no, but everyone does it.
And I hope to GOD you have a microwave ! ! ! :)

Be sure you are on the 1st floor. My brother warped the 2nd floor of his house from the weight of his water bed.
