As I stated in my Back in Seattle post, I live in a “micro-studio.” What’s a micro-studio? It’s a studio apartment, but way smaller than the studio you just visualized. Way, way smaller. They’re also sometimes known as “apodments” in Seattle, after one of the realty brands (not the one I rent from) that exclusively rent out micro-studios. I call my place “The Pod” so I can say Dylan and I are two D’s in a Pod (*ba dum tsss*). Essentially, I live in a 180 square foot room equipped with a bed, a closet, a desk, a sink, a separated bathroom with a toilet and standing shower, and a communal kitchen. Remember when you were in college and lived in a dorm? Yeah, same.
