…may not be in the ‘burbs much longer!
On a whim, I went to an open house for a studio apartment in a row house in Mount Pleasant. The studio was tiny, but reasonably priced, and it had a dishwasher, and a bay window, and awesome wood floors. *drools*
Then the guy showing the unit mentioned that the unit on the floor below it was a one bedroom and was going to be available in about a month (the current tenant was in the process of moving out, and then they were going to update the kitchen). It was also going to be renting for a reasonable price. I was all over that! (And how awesome is it that they won’t charge me extra for my cats? First place EVER that doesn’t!)
I’ve already filled out an application, and after the outgoing tenant is moved out they can let me in to see it and I can make my final decision!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! *flaily Kermit arms*
Why am I so freaking excited about this apartment? (Note: these pictures are from the 3rd floor studio apartment that I saw today, not the 2nd floor one bedroom I’m looking to rent)
I’m really hoping it works out, because living somewhere I actually like will go a long ways toward helping my frame of mind right now! Really, the only minus I can think of about the place is the fact that the kitchen has significantly less counter and cabinet space than my current place. But that will force me to get rid of a lot of the crap I’ve accumulated, and there is space for an extra shelf or small table that can help with storage!–though, this is based on seeing the kitchen in the studio apartment…I’m assuming the kitchen in the one bedroom is the same size, but we shall see!
(Though I do have to say, when my friends see the narrow staircase that they’re going to have to help me move stuff up, they might all kill me! :-P)
