In my last blog I told everyone how I'd gotten a job. Well, now I found an apartment. It's been an up and down journey the past few weeks. I found a place that I loved, turned in the application, went to sign the lease, and suddenly they tell me that utilities and the lawncare that was supposed to be included in the rent now isn't. This means I'd have to pay about an extra $100 a month plus do yard work, which I hate. So, needless to say, I didn't take the place.
Life is funny sometimes though. An apartment that I really wanted that got rented before I could snatch it up was back on the market this week. Turns out the person who took it had some problem and couldn't move in, so they needed a new renter. I took it immediately. It's a 2 bed, 1 bath. It has a small kitchen, but HUGE living room. I move tomorrow which makes this weekend really crazy, but also really fun.
I start my new job on Monday. I'm also really excited about that. So, there's tons of change going on in my life right now. But I'm embracing it and looking forward to it. But don't be surprised if I'm a little MIA in the next few weeks...I have a lot going on!
