We got approved for the wonderful apartment! I should be signing a lease in a few days. It's a one bedroom, over twice as big as the last place I looked at and for the same price. It has a biggish bathroom, a walk-in closet, and windows in every room! It's a second-floor walkup on the west side in a wonderful neighborhood filled with restaurants and shopping, and there's even laundry in the basement! I can't stop it with the exclamation marks!
I really can't believe it was this painless to find and get approved for an apartment in NYC. I only looked for one week, and this was only the 3rd place I went to! I've had more trouble finding housing in the 'burbs! Incredible.
In crap news, the AC's broken in my current apartment, which means it's over 85degrees in here. I called someone to come look at it tomorrow, but it really pisses me off to have to shell out to fix the AC when I'm moving in a month anyway! Totally crap timing, mr. ac unit. You suck.
Yay new apartment! Now to start packing. Ugh.
