Tips For Making Somewhere Your Home

I’ve always been more prone to making a home in people instead of a location. But when you start over somewhere new, it’s so important to nest and love the place you are. People are great, but you need to love your home too.

Here are some tips for making somewhere your home.

  1. Personalize the crap out of your home
    Our apartment is decked out with things that mean a lot to us. Most of our decor is unique and one of a kind, things we picked out together during our travels instead of HomeGoods. Whether it’s lots of photos or meaningful decor, personalize your home.
  2. Start looking through Facebook events nearby
    Looking for ways to start loving your city? I go through nearby Facebook events and mark interested in anything that seems fun. When that date comes up, we have lots of options for exploring!
  3. Find the restaurant you love
    This is so important, right? You have to nail down your pizza place, your favorite take out place, your favorite sit down place. Nothing makes me feel more at home than food.
  4. Surround yourself with people who feel like home
    Whether that’s your dog, your friends from back home, or your family. Make a point to keep those people in your life.
  5. Meet a friend
    Join a club, go on BumbleBFF, get close to your coworkers! All you need is one friend to really start fitting into a place.

10 Things I Need To Do In NJ Before I Leave

Everyone has little pieces of their home state that they can’t find anywhere else. I decided to write down 10 things I need to do in New Jersey before I move to New Hampshire. Because I know the bagels and pizza won’t be as good, and I know I won’t see the ocean for a while, and bits of my home just won’t be in New Hampshire. But once I’m there, I’ll be sure to make a list of 10 things I need to do in New Hampshire. For now, here’s my list:

  1. Wawa coffee everyyyyy week
  2. Get a North Jersey Bagel
  3. Visit Asbury Park
  4. See the ocean
  5. Lots of jersey pizza
  6. Ring in the New Year with my best friends
  7. Drive past my childhood home
  8. Sunday dinner at grandma’s
  9. Get my gas pumped (I’ll miss this the most)
  10. Go to a diner late at night.
