Seeing as how I have enjoyed my new residential setup while being at University, I thought I should take a couple of minutes out of my time to write this post out. Last year I was staying in a student residential area, and saw that it was not for me (too much partying, little privacy). I found this really epic bachelor pad setup last year, signed the papers and paid the deposit, and now, I am enjoying my living conditions so much!

I signed the papers, and was ready to move in….I am loving every moment of my new flat – I had gotten a bachelor flat… it has its own bedroom, its own bathroom, its own kitchen and lounge together! One other added bonus to my new place is the amazing view I get – a nature reserve, the university, as well as some animals that may be passing by. The new place is quite secure – electric fencing and a remote controlled gate which you can open and close as you please.

I honestly feel I will be doing a lot of great things this year, just by being in such an amazing place! I feel so motivated, like it is worth working really hard for things! Not that I want to offend any of you readers, but I honestly regard my new place as “The Promised Land”…. the same can be said with my housemates (they stay in the main house) – they are just amazing people!! We watched Game of Thrones, and Suits, together and had so much fun!!

Kitchen / Lounge Area

For starters, I do not share anything! I have my kitchen, which is attached to the lounge area! The kitchen has what I like to describe a “complete stove” – this having all 4 plates, and an oven for baking! I have my Microwave, toaster and kettle (I am using my kettle – I love glass kettles). I get my fridge, which is really sweet…

The Bedroom / Amazing View

Another aspect of my bachelor pad which makes me love it so much is that the bedroom area is very spacious and it is separate from my lounge / kitchen area. I enjoy my sleeps so much! On top of the spacious bedroom, I am surrounded by a nature reserve, so I get to enjoy the amazing view of the land, university, and the animals that pass by. Just these few things make me really happy!

If I open my windows, I get to feel the fresh air, which is really great (on hot days, or just chilled days).

The Internet / Housemates

The internet is great – I did run a speedtest and saw that we are running on a 2Mbps ADSL Line (I heard Rumor that Telkom will be upgrading all 2Mbps lines to 4Mbps free of charge, in 2015…so I look forward to that). Internet runs great – I am loving not seeing some “Content Filter Warning” telling me the site I am trying to use has been blocked!

My housemates (they stay in the main house) are amazing people!! I love every one of them! We been having series nights now and then, and just sitting and chilling together, all happy!


I am loving my new setup… I wake up smiling every morning and I feel so motivated to work extremely hard and not settle for less. I have big plans this year, and I know I will meet all of them!!
