Finally! Today I made a down payment and got me a pair of sweet keys. No more nights in this raritan new jersey hotel. I’m moving in tomorrow until the beginning of October. Its mainly a base for finding another place later. I gather its easier after school starts. Yes new York is huge but new students mainly compete for the cheapest places so it isn’t crazy. The place is great. Its about 4 blocks south of the Bedford ave L train stop. I’ve got my car with me and I’ll see how that goes. Obviously some people are keeping cars in the city so it can’t be that bad. The place is great though and there is even a cat! She was a real sweetheart too. Crawled up to me instantly. I have only looked for 4 days so I guess I’ve been lucky. I had a look around and said id take so that was that! Now i just need to familiarize myself with the neoghborhood. It was either there or a place in astoria. I liked astoria a lot btw but not for someone my age. Astoria was cool though.
Now i just have to figure out what the deal with my future roomate is. Hopefully he’ll come through. If not i think ill simply look for someone to get a place with. I feel that this would would work out best as we’d be equals going into the rent rather than someone else dictating rule to me. Ive always hated that about craigslist ads. They are always so specific about what they want or not. The worst is when they stipulate that the person shouldnt be at home a lot! Its crazy!
