Let’s face it. I live in a small apartment. Making the choice to live in a studio apartment on Seattle’s Capitol Hill was definitely a calculated choice. I’ve always said I’d rather live in a small apartment in the best neighborhood than a big place out in the suburbs. It’s a lesson I learned years ago after purchasing a condo 20 miles north of Seattle. That decision left me with at times a 90 minute commute and I swore I’d never be so careless with location ever again.
