I have those exact same cabinets in my apartment, too. We own, so I could do anything I want with them, but I decided to live with them for six months and see how I feel after. Now, honestly, I kind of like them. They're sort of beat up, but they're actual birch, not particle board or MDF, and I like that they've survived this long. I also decided that there's more than one way for a kitchen to be great, and they don't all have to be bright and antiseptic. It's cozy and tactile intstead, and that's good for me.

I'm going to redecorate the kitchen. I already managed the deep clean that needed to happen before I could think about doing that, and I have an idea of what I want. It's a bigger project than I think is intended here, but I'm only working at quarter time this month, so I have plenty of time. This also just means new wall paint, cabinet knobs, and maybe a runner for our tiny galley kitchen.

I always buy grass-fed, organic, ethically treated meat. And that's mostly beef and lamb, with some pork. I'm really skeptical about the feasibility of humanely/healthily raising chickens on a large scale at all, and they don't have as good of a nutritional profile. I don't know what the average amount of meat is that most people are eating less than; I'm mostly Primal so I think we eat a fair amount of meat, but my household is all poor graduate students, and it still works out. I think I'm probably okay with spending a larger proportion of my income on food than most people are, since I don't have kids, a car, or a mortgage.

I hate the habit of registries in general, they're always tacky AND presumptuous. They're bad enough for weddings, but for a new apartment? Unimaginable.
