I decided to go tiny while pursuing my degree in oriental medicine because I value simple living, love cozy spaces, the outdoors, and wanted to minimize my student loans. My cousin built her own tiny house and I was very inspired by her! I thought about building my own but after a year of emails from Tiny House Listings I discovered a tiny house with my name on it (built by someone else).
I feel grateful for living tiny. I’ve been living with my boyfriend in the house for almost a year (minus weekends) and it has been great. I’ve learned that I can “have my own space” without being in my own space, that clutter really does take up room quickly, and that in a sense all you own really does own you too!
