So I found a studio apartment in London.

It's pretty tiny (only 20 square meters, which is RIDICULOUSLY SMALL to me, but maybe not so much by central London standards?), but the decor is nice, and it's right in Bloomsbury.

Pros - self contained, nice decor, Victorian building, first floor (second floor to us Americans), two Juliette balconies, random marble fireplace, giant windows, decent flooring, modern, central, 5 minutes frm the school, near cool things, it's in a flat share building so I will be near people in similar situations.

Cons - tiny, tiny, tiny, basically no storage, I have no idea where anything is going to fit, no place to sit and eat, next to a fish restaurant (which is suppose is a hazard of living in a city), EXPENSIVE, might have to deal with other noisy-ass people.

Anyway, I've been spending the last few hours freaking out over the whole thing. Because I freak out about everything. The apartment is lovely, but I keep second guessing myself... It's horrible. I'm mostly freaking out over the size. For reference, I currently live in a moderately sized house. Going from tons of space to basically none is freaking me the fuck out. At least the location is perfect...

Hmm, is there anywhere else you could put the bed? The windows are a nice size and should help make the room look bigger, so make space around them.

I wouldn't worry to much about your decision. Just make it based on what you can live with, a fish place, the lack of space, and is it worth having the convenience of living close to school or not?

You might also ask around the neighborhood how other people like the area, telling them you want to live near there. But basically, it is a risk and there will be things you have to learn since you're going to a new place, so you're bound to make mistakes. ^-^

That's life for ya! Good luck!

I like it . the large windows and bright colors will make it look alot larger than it is. (i live in a box so its huge for me) but I agree with what jamieguo48 . Good luck regardless.
