I say 3.5 office-tells, because the second one I moved into had no window, and after bitterly complaining managed to move across the hallway to an office-tell with a window. However, the place was still dingy.
Buying plants and keeping them alive, was a way I found to feel better about your cramped living space.
Yet that doesn't mean life can't start anew!
Since living in my new place I have acquired and grown a few plants. Most of them have been the Daiso (bargain store) mini-plants. Basically what you get is a kit, including soil, seeds and a pot. You put it all together and about a week later something sprouts.
I also have a spearmint plant, which has grown itself pretty nicely. If you can find it I would highly recommend growing a spearmint plant, as for one you can eat the leaves and two it does a good job of freshening up the office-tell.
This probably sounds crazy, but I enjoy watching my plants grow. I know what you are thinking, that plants grow slowly. But one day I put water in the pink-pot plant and I saw the leaves perk up rather quickly.
The other day a truck went by the river outside spraying pesticide. It was a fun sight considering there were people walking by and cyclists going through.
