    The apartment article fucking pissed me off. Do you realize that humans have spent most of their time living in tents and huts? Even today, 250 climate controlled, safe, healthy, clean square feet would be a luxury for much of the world. My room here is 97 square feet and it has absolutely no impact on my happiness.

    When she interviewed me, I had no idea the article would sound so negative. She kind of twisted my words - when she asked me about my "micro-apartment" I told her it's not THAT micro...

    I happen to really like my apartment - definitely an over dramatic article.
