@sdotbailey said: You totally should’ve gotten the one by the lake! And, I make the drive from Los Feliz to Woodland Hills each day, worse coming home than going in but you’ll live!
Eh, I know I should’ve, but I barely know anyone in LA and this house has a really friendly environment so I’ll ride it out for 5 months and then hopefully find another super awesome place in echo park and maybe even have people to look with by then. And I’m gonna have to make some good CDs to survive the commute because my car doesn’t even have an ipod connector port thing -__-
I’ve been vigorously apartment hunting since I got here and I saw two awesome places that either went with someone else or decided not to get a roommate and then yesterday, I saw four places, the second of which was the perfect house - huge room, had a bed and a separate office, absolutely amazing unbeatable price, exactly where I wanted it, right by echo park lake but the girl was like the dude that JUST left before you (whom I met on my way in) wants it but if he doesn’t give me a check within the hour, it’s yours. An hour passed, I saw another sketchy ass place. I felt defeated and stressed and then I get an email from some place with chill people and I call them immediately and go see the place in ktown. It’s also absolutely awesome - huge room, also an office, two walk in closets, and chill people living there, but it’s more expensive and deep in ktown/mid city, like ~15 minutes from echo park/silverlake, where I wanted to be. I was the first to see it and they said they’d call me later after they talk to their roommies but they liked me.
Went to pollo loco, felt hopeful. On my way home, I get a text from the first place saying the room is mine if I want it. Right after, the other place calls saying I got it and I’m like yay ok. So I went with my heart on this one and chose the more expensive, not particularly located exactly where I wanted place with really awesome people til the end of February, when the house is being ripped apart to build an apartment complex. So I guess I’ll just hate myself in February when I’ll be looking for a place exactly like the first one but an awesome living environment is really important to me and hard to find.
I can’t even pick what I want for lunch, why would I be cursed with this kind of decision???
Dat commute to northridge is gonna be brutal, time to find a real job~~
I posted a craigslist ad asking people if they wanna look for a place together and literally a dozen people responded and most of them seem pretty cool and I know I can’t live with all of them but it’d be really cool if I could meet up with them and maybe be friends even if we don’t end up living together bc I’m in desperate need of friends on the west coast. But is there really a decent way to be like “hey, let’s meet up and see if we vibe” and then later be like, “you know what, I went with someone else, or a couple of other people, but let’s still be friends” ..probably not, but I’m gonna try to milk this social life thing a lil before I’m 12 episodes of a new show and half a box of wine deep on the floor of my future unfurnished bedroom.
Who knew I was such a hot commodity of a roommie tho, amirite?
