Kindergarten. High school. Your first heartbreak. A real job after college. A home. Everyone grows up at different points of their life.

The year I turned 30 was when I truly realized the volatility of time. Little children whom I once held in my arms are now full-grown adults. My parents and older siblings who seemed to tower over me at one point are now becoming older. It was as though I was suddenly transported through 10 years without realizing how much time had passed.

Even though I will probably never be ready to be an adult, I found myself sharing stories and lessons in the hopes of helping those around me. And so, Apartment 89 was born.

The Voice Behind Apartment 89

Hello there! I’m Momo and am the voice behind Apartment 89. I am your regular awkward, human being. Some of the things I love most are quiet mornings, spending quality time with loved ones, and inspiring those around me.

Apartment 89 has been incubating in my head since the summer of 2019. I took a leap of courage and launched it in January 2020. I hope the stories told at Apartment 89 can help you and inspire you to be the best that you can be.
