So I haven’t blogged in over a month, that’s because things on the home-front got a little shaken up. I am now roommate-less, but it’s all for the best, as the current situation was costing more $ than it should have. Isn’t getting a roommate to supposed save you money, anyway? Yeah, that’s what I thought. So that’s all I have to say about that. Hopefully my friend A will land a job in NYC very soon, so she can be my new and improved roomie. She’s already passed the interview with the co-op board, aka Stewie! 😉
Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend. I have a lot of new content to be updated on here shortly, so stay posted.
I first encountered my apartment when my friend SA and her bf TG and adorable pup Mindy were residing in it. I had taken a chance and bought a one way ticket back to NYC from Hawaii. (Yeah, yeah I know what you’re thinking: “What?!? How could you leave Hawaii?!” Well I will tell you my dear friends, I had been living there for 3 years and after a failed relationship, getting laid off from my job & being unemployed for 8 months, it was time to go. But it’s not like I can’t go back for a visit, my mom lives there and I am going back for Xmas as a matter of fact.
So anyway, I packed up my bags and headed back to the Big Apple. I had lived there previously while attending university, S was one of my friends that I made while attending there. So she kindly offered me her futon to crash on while I went on a quest to look for a job. It appeared it was meant to be and I quickly landed a job, albeit not in my field of study but it paid the bills. Beggers can’t be choosers, am I right? So after securing a job, I moved out to sublet a couple of different places. In July 2011, my sublet ended on the last place, SA was looking for a roommate (her bf went to attend med school out-of-state). The timing was perfect! So I moved in permanently. We got another roommate in January 2012, named Stewie.
SA has since moved out-of-state to join her bf as of two months ago. And now I have a new roommate CJ.
This is my first real apartment in the real world so it’s a kind of big deal. I haven’t done a whole lot of work to it except painting but man oh man do I have lots of hopes for this place!
