I need to start out by saying, I haven’t written anything hear for a while now, I’ve been crazy busy. A lot of that craziness is winding down now. I’m planning to make up for it, posting very regularly in the near future about everything that’s been going on over the last month.
One of the big things keeping me busy was looking for a new apartment. It turns out that when you don’t have enough time because you’re spending too long commuting, in the short run trying to fix that makes things worse. This is especially true if you’re going to be picky and try to find a place you can afford and be happy in.
Last week Brandon and I found our new place. It’s in Central Square, Cambridge. We had actually seen it a few weeks earlier and were very impressed by the location (very close to the T, nice quiet street), the size, and how cheap it was given that. We had some issues that we couldn’t get over though. There was a half bath next to the bedrooms but the full bath was all the way across the apartment and up a spiral staircase. It was a little older and rough around the edges and we were hoping to move somewhere a little nicer, since we’re getting out of poorly maintained student housing now.
After it didn’t go the price dropped and it still didn’t go. On Monday we found out that the landlord is completely renovating it including changing the upstairs bathroom into a study, putting in a new full bath downstairs. The kitchen is being completely redone, new carpets in the bedrooms and living room, the whole deal. After finding that out, suddenly the place is perfect for us.
On April 15th we get to start moving in and I’m pretty psyched.
