So today I finally made it official and signed a lease on an apartment. This little one bedroom place will now be my home for the next 6 months. Sure it’s lacking in some things but for the price it’s pretty good and probably more than anything I’m just glad the hunt is over. I know in the other post I said I talked with people from at least 25 different places and since then it’s almost doubled. Well, maybe more like in the 40 range. I’m now a pro at talking to random strangers and not just those working in the apartment complexes. I had semi conversations with the renters insurance lady and the guy setting up my electricity account. And how could I leave off Vince, the guy who approached me outside of a small post office to ask me if I knew where an AT&T store was. I know that Vince is from New York and knows where the really good pizza places are here in the area and he gave me some tips on renting my one bedroom place (though I never told him I was looking for a one bedroom) and that he himself was new to the area (only lived here for 7 or 8 months but I think he should know where an AT&T store is by now) but so far liked it and liked his one bedroom apartment (um, his way of letting me know that he was single?).
So step one is over with and now come step 2: the actual move and getting all my crap set up in my apartment and step 3: finding a job. Fingers crossed step three happens rapidly or in 6 months I’ll be letting you all know that I’ve sold all my earthly possesions, except my library card so I can still use the computers and blog to all of you of course, and have taken up residency in the shadows and I’ll be known as the crazy lady that screams at you. Hopefully it won’t come to that.
So tomorrow I get back into my blasted car and make my way back up to Utah, all so the adventure can continue.
