bubbacakesSuccess!

I chose an apartment recommended by the locator that is in a great central location. I’m paying about 15% more in rent, but already I have signed up for a volunteer position and I’m planning on attending a training for another one this evening.
I looked for a place that felt inviting and where it seemed like there were other folks like me already living there (with plants, kinda homey and quirky decorations, and not too slick or sterile).
I’ve painted the place the way I like it in hopes I’ll be happy here for a long time. 4 years ago

I met with a locator yesterday to specify my requirements. I’m trying to move closer to town, find a place without carpet, and stay within a certain price range. I know I’ll spend more than what I’m paying now, and I’ll be fortunate if I find a place as big as what I have now, but living closer in will make it easier to participate in life instead of just hiding in the suburbs. 4 years ago

this will be easier to do now, because my bf and i have decided to get a place together after our leases are up. i’m really excited about it. we’ll be able to get a bigger better place because we’ll be splitting the rent. i can’t wait. 5 years ago

So, I have been living in my new apartment for almost two months now. I gave notice to my old landlord on Jun 22nd that I would be moving out when my lease expired at the end of July. I have a hunch that she is trying to scam me out of another month’s rent by saying that I didn’t give “proper 30 days notice” because my notice wasn’t in the format she wanted. This could get ugly… 5 years ago


gameboiphreakFinally out

My new apartment is great… took me forever to finally move but I did it and it’s totally worth it. 5 years ago


styrofoambreakDone!

Spent last night driving back and forth delivering boxes to my new place. Then I put on some good music and started re-assmbling my furniture. At first I had a few doubts when I moved in, but those quickly evaporated when I thought about my old apartment. There’s still some moving to do and I need to get all the utilites resolved, but the place is officially mine and I am happy about it! 5 years ago


styrofoambreakMoving Day

I am meeting my landlord after work today to get my key and pay my first month’s rent. I spent all weekend packing and taking apart furniture, so I am eager to get moved!

Goodbye noisy neighbors with your loud parties! Goodbye annoying children that play kickball in the parking lot until midnight (using my car as third base). Goodbye nieghborhood thugs that key my car. Goodbye noisy airplanes. Goodbye leaking wall and single pane windows.

To say I am excited would be a bit of an understatement. Finally I can living in a quiet neighborhood with character. I can walk everywhere I go! This is going to rule! Finally I won’t be ashamed to have my friends come visit me any longer! 5 years ago


styrofoambreakLease...Signed!

My future landlord e-mailed me the lease to sign, which I did and returned to him. Looks like my move in date will be Monday June 2nd. I am very excited. 5 years ago


styrofoambreakMinor Setback

My move-in date may be pushed back. The landlord and the current tenant are having a bit of a difficult time arranging the walk-through before he moves out. I hope this doesn’t slow things down too much. I still haven’t signed a lease yet. 5 years ago
