We had some major plans. Plans that relied on universes colliding, or planets getting all lined up and orderly, or … a bunch of stuff that was only a teensy bit under our control. And those plans did not happen and that means! We are now looking for another apartment in the bay area.
Waaahhhhhh! I’m weeping money tears.
Not only do we need to move on principle (this rent is to damn high for what we get…. it’s too damn high in general, but we’re about to start paying even more for more space so I have to try and soothe my outrage somehow), we also need a little bit more space. Baby will one day (very soon) need his own bedroom, which means we should probably get an apartment that has more than one.
Last time we moved we made a video about the new (current/old) apartment. This time I’ll be sharing our journey to find an apartment that doesn’t make me feel like I’m being robbed every single day and yet gives us a little more room to breath. It might be impossible. It’s probably totally impossible, but we’ll be moving regardless so let’s make the best of it, shall we?
Here is my wish list:
- Maybe 1.5 baths?
- 2 bedrooms (obvi… even if bedroom #2 is more like a semi large closet)
- A kitchen that is NOT simply a strip of linoleum in the living room.
- Oh, and… Kamel would delight in a patio. That is all.
It is probably going to cost between 1800-2000 a month. And the fact that we have to pay that makes me want to cry. So let’s see what my money tears will get us! YAY MOVING WITH AN INFANT! And overpaying! For something we don’t own! And for something that we can’t even paint… Joy.
Whenever we go on apartment viewings, I’ll share our finds here. And we can laugh at the expense and cry over the futility of it all together.
