Remember how I’d narrowed it down to two apartments? Well, today I’ve heard from both of them. And I’ve made a decision. Both had second floor units coming available in August, but the two deciding factors were that the dryer in the Parchment unit is electric ($$$$!) and the complex has free, secure, Wi-Fi. The decision suddenly went from being difficult to being very, very easy. The unit in Parchment may have been cheaper, but I would have had astronomical electrical bills from the dryer. And the unit on the west side means I can drop cable, which is more than the difference between the two rents. I’m dropping off my deposit tomorrow! The unit will be available in the middle of August, so I’ll be out of my old place by Labor Day. Woohoo!
