Well, as it turns out, the last 2 apartments I looked at were both beautiful and in my price range. I signed a lease on Sunday and will be moving on Friday. Thanks be to moving companies that will help me carry all of the heavy stuff. It is well worth the fee to be out of that negative place and in to the fresh, roommate-less, new one. I will post some pictures as soon as I take them! Plenty of room for visitors...
If you need my mailing address for any reason, let me know. (It is creepy to post it on a blog, so do email if needed)
And on another note, tonight we're going to some 90 minute seminar about a travel company in exchange for 2 free airfares, 2 nights in a hotel and a 7 day car rental (and perhaps I have to exchange my soul, I dunno). Hopefully its not a total scam. I would love to cash in on my new years resolution (aka, travel to MN and visit those I left behind so many years ago)
