apartment hunting… or not really hunting at all

4 11 2009

So my roommate and I have discussed many times the prospect of moving from our apartment at the end of the year, and our lease is up at the end of November, so we were thinking about starting to look for places at the beginning of November. So, right now. And so today, my roommate emailed me a bunch of craigslist ads to call and make appointments. I called three, and only one person answered, so I scheduled a viewing of that apartment later that afternoon. Four hours later, we signed the lease. WHAT? I know. It sounds crazy, but it really happened, and the hilarious part is that now I get to tell people that we found an apartment before they even knew we were looking for one. Because we had been “officially looking” for about 2 hours.

Anyway, the apartment is in Hoboken, which is perfect because my roommate works in Hoboken, and it has cool things like exposed brick walls, and a dishwasher, and two ACTUAL bedrooms, and it’s pretty much perfect for what we need in an apartment. And, I’m very excited to buy bookshelves and other things to decorate!

I’m so happy we were able to find a nice apartment without any of the hassle! So excited to move in next month.





beda day #21: my posts have become entirely too structured

22 04 2009

let’s try to break that shall we? It’s late, and I’m late for BEDA again, so let’s spice it up!

GOOD MORNING STARSHINE, THE EARTH SAYS HELLO!

1. You know those things you see and think to yourself, “I have never done that before but I think I’d be really good?” That’s how I feel about Olympic diving.

2. I JUST ATE ALL OF THE CHOCOLATE THAT MY MOM SENT ME FOR EASTER (hahaha yes, I’m a child) AND I’M SAD!

3. I don’t understand how people with long nails type. My nails are a wee bit longer than usual, and I keep making typos. It’s embarrassing.

4. I sometimes use “typo” as an excuse when I just can’t spell something. Even in longhand. “Summer, did you just spell ‘hoard’ with a ‘w’ on this note to our letter carrier?” “WHAT? NO, THAT ISATYPO!”

5. I am very optimistic for a 22-year-old girl without a job.

6. This site is amazing. Gossip Girl fans, check it. STAT.

7. Speaking of Gossip Girl, where the eff was Eric? I mean, doesn’t he live, like, somewhere? Shouldn’t Chuck have ran into him in the hall while ditching his ballerina? Ah, whatever, I’ll suspend reality for this show. Hell, I’d watch Serena do a crossword for 43 minutes if Alex Patsavas did the music.

8. About four people a day find this blog because they google “500 days of summer torrent” (and by putting the word “torrent” in there, I’ve just upped my count, but whatever, If they are here, maybe they’ll love me, dig?). Guys, that movie comes out in July. AND AS SOON AS THAT MOVIE IS AVAILABLE FOR ILLEGAL DOWNLOAD, I will fo shizz let you all know.

9. So our Battle of the Books video… is spreading faster than an STD in a whorehouse. LOVE IT. So many people are posting it on their personal blogs and I’m just so happy that everyone appreciates it as much as we do! If you haven’t checked it out yet, please do so! It’s probably one of my proudest accomplishments to date (that list includes graduating from college and learning all the lyrics to Bottom of the Ocean by Miley Cyrus, yes it does).

oooooooooh here’s a fun game!
