Now that I actually have a job, I can post about this, originally written at the end of February.
At the end of March or the beginning of April, I’m either going to have a party to celebrate the one-year anniversary of this blog and my 25th birthday, or move. (Probably not going to have a party- it’s a little late now.) Yes, I’m thinking about leaving Menlo Park for the sunnier climes of Mountain View. It puts me farther away from my brother and sister-in-law, but closer to my other friends (well, except Lydia and Zack, this’ll add another ten miles to the trip to the East Bay). So I’m browsing through the apartment listings online, and I am just astounded by how poorly laid-out many of these kitchens seem to be. Clearly, they were not designed by anyone who actually cooks. It’s like you don’t actually need counter space to work on, nonsense! I mean, look at this picture. There’s two square feet of usable counter space. With a mixer and food processor, there’s approximately zero. This doesn’t even count as a kitchen. I think my cutting board alone would overfill that tiny little bit of space.
