I got a new apartment!
Now, I haven't actually signed anything yet. Nor have I met the landlord. But I met the roommates, they seem chill, and their place is awesome. They were showing it to some other people as well, but they emailed me this morning to tell me that the spot was mine if I wanted it. It could still fall through, but I've got a really good feeling about it. The fact that they've both been living here for at least a year and are looking to sign another lease tells me that I am probably not wrong.
I decided to move out my current place for two primary reasons. 1. Living alone is a rather expensive luxury. It cost me several hundred dollars/month to do so, and frankly that is too much. The fact that the rent was going up when my lease expired didn't help. 2. Not having other people around makes it difficult to motivate myself to do things, whether it be chores or fun activities. I don't think the bad periods I've had this year would have been nearly so bad if I wasn't living in my own little world all the time.
In other news, I'm also looking forward to seeing people at graduation this weekend. It's kind of weird to think it's been a year since I was in that position. Oh well, it'll be less stressful for me this way, I think. :)
Now I just need to make it through a loooonnnngggg night....
