So...I blog about looking for an apartment. And THE NEXT DAY, we find an apartment.
And it is a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y perfect.
I'm so not even kidding.
-The price is lower than I thought possible, and INCLUDES heat & hot water.
-We are 20 minutes from DreamSchool, 5 minutes (walking) from the subway.
-Hardwoods and crown molding.
-Exposed brick and faux-fireplaces.
-In an adorable kitschy area that has great bookstores, restaurants, shops, etc.
-A landlord named Wally
I mean, can you even believe it??? A LANDLORD NAMED WALLY? An adorable, grumpy, adorable, squatty, ADORABLE old man named WALLY?
And it's cat friendly.
I have died and gone to apartment heaven. I should go buy lottery tickets.
We saw it last night, fell in love, and this morning submitted first month's rent and our rental application. We're pushing to sign a lease after our spring break - like March 14 or 15.
I'm also kind of half-wondering if Wally is hiding a dead body in the closet there. Remind me to check next time I go drool over/look at my new APARTMENT.
This Happy Apartment High has lasted long enough to keep me from panicking about the paper I had due today! or the 6 interviews I've conducted last night and this afternoon! or the quiz I have tomorrow! or the article I have due tomorrow! or the MIDTERM I have tomorrow!
Which basically means that finding apartments = magic. Just like this blog.
And one other thing: look!*
It's purty. And funky. And I love it. And it looks fabulous with my room. And I cannot. wait. to see Wally's face when I bring it to my new APARTMENT!
*Thanks to CSN stores! I love the lamp!!! Jamie was incredible to work with & made the whole process so easy. PLUS it shipped and got to me so quickly!
