Oh.
One final post for today. Eh, yeah.

I got an apartment~ $440 (price including utilities estimate: $391 + electric (20) + water (7.. so he said, anyways.) + sewer (5) + internet (20). Note, we don't plan on getting a landline telephone, or cable tv.) per month (per person - two of us)... probably a bit on the costly side, but it's decently close to the campus... a bit north of the very nice Eastview one that had a T1 connection... which we would have gotten if we didn't hesitate like we did. Fucking damn.)

But the landlord person was very nice and offered suggestions and didn't mind our not knowing how to write checks ::winces:: ::feels stupid:: (paid first month rent today)

Mmmm, so now I'm a 5?10 minute walk from the union, as opposed to the current 15-20 min. And while there's no longer a convenient bus that goes (in 7 minutes, avg.) to near the center of the quad, I'm within a minute's walk to the 22 bus, which runs every 10 minutes (as opposed to the every 5 for the convenient bus...) but runs from 7 to like, 2 AM. And on weekends too.

Honestly, there's cheaper, but as he said, you get what you pay for. And the other ones that we saw were... indeed.... crappy. Would have paid for like, $200 per month, but the thing about this one was that it looked well maintained, like the Eastview one. Heck, the Eastview guy suggested this one to us. And there's an emphasis on good maintenance.

The rooms were a tad bit small (they give us a full sized bed. What am I going to use it for? Anyone want to sleep with me? ^^;;), but the living room (what the hell are we going to use that for?) is rather decently size. As in, you could comfortably play DDR there, without fear of hitting things.

Kitchen is a bit small.. not a lot of maneuverability, but I don't exactly foresee fighting over cooking space.

Current Mood: wheee~

Mmm, are you two looking for an apartment as well?

I'm technically looking around, but I would be unable to afford it for years yet. But I still celebrate for you!

Which is why you need to finish the applications, turn them in, and get at least one job, because until I get a big raise, not enough money.  C'mon.  I'll give you an early prezzie . . .

When I get benefits at work, and hence vacation days, I am coming and TEACHING YOU HOW TO COOK, DAMMIT.

Heh, ok.

Actually, I suppose I need to teach you how to shop, too.

If you just bought an apartment, what about your dorm?? Are you going to just skip out of your dorm and settle in that apartment for the rest of the year? *tsks* The money.... the parents' upcoming complaints.... -_-

PS Did you tell Mom and Dad about it yet?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: November 30th, 2004 06:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Next year, idiot.

And don't tsk at me. I'm FUCKING OLDER THAN YOU ARE AND (more importantly) YOU DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE DETAILS!

And I worry ENOUGH about the money. I don't need you to tell me about money. Nor parents.

Why don't you tell them, huh?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: November 30th, 2004 06:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Let me clarify. You don't know all of the details in this apartment deal. I have not told you anything, and you are making blatent assumptions and practically SCOLDING me about things that aren't true based upon those false assumptions.

Perhaps you should THINK before you post.
tinkleneko From: tinkleneko Date: November 30th, 2004 06:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
I did think. Chill, geez. Since you said you "paid the first month rent", doesn't that mean you're living in there already? Or did you mean something else?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: November 30th, 2004 06:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, you have been informed of my short temper at the moment. And I won't chill. So go shove your head in a toilet.

Ah, so that's what confused you. It was a downpayment. Security, if you will, to keep us from just randomly running off or deciding against the apartment.

As always, curiousity kills the cat. Cat in THIS case= me.

Not knowing the locality, that price sounds pretty decent for a University area. But no landline? But.. but.. that means.. no DSL?

~thinks of life without a network connection~

~faints~

::pours water over porsupah:: is a landline a requirement for DSL? And even if we didn't get a landline, there's still the cable option...
