How Long Does it Take You to Get Settled?

I moved into the apartment above one week ago today. I am the type of person that can't do anything else until I finish my current project. Being in a new and exciting apartment cluttered with boxes makes me nuts! Over the past week I pulled a few all nighters and sacrificed a lot of of my time — but I was determined to get everything in place ASAP.

With the exception of a yet-to-be-painted chalkboard wall and a dresser that needs to be refinished, my apartment is completely finished. Every box is unpacked and every print is hung meticulously. Sure, I haven't had any time to eat or sleep, but I am 100% comfortable in my new space. Just the way I like it!

How long does it take you to get settled after a move? Are you excited to unpack or do you dread finding a place for everything?
