Where (Jackie) Lives

Posted September 9th, 2013

Adult apartment indeed? Cripes, I’ve been here since 2005, and I have a toddler, and I don’t even have a dining room. FringeArts fan Jackie Dunayevich shares her rise to adulthood, featuring fancy chairs.

homeJackieMy home is mine. I moved out east from Michigan in 2010 for nursing school, and then moved to the city for my job. My first city apartment was pretty typical; infested with mice and loud drunks outside. And, then I moved again. I live in Queen Village now, where the people are friendly and the living is easy.

I took about two months with help from family and friends decorating and getting my place perfect for me. As my sister put it, I have an “adult” apartment now. And I’m so proud of it!

I want to hear about where you live for the blog, and for our Facebook page. Send me a photo of you’re “home,” whatever that may mean to you, at NickG[at]FringeArts[dot]com. Brief stories or poems about the photo or your memories of “home” are welcome!

So Percussion’s Where (we) Live runs September 12, 13, and 14 at the Painted Bride Art Center, 230 Vine Street, Old City. All shows 9:00 pm, $20-$29.
