I have great news. Well, for me. I got the apartment! I had to get in contact with an old landlord about a reference, and she said she would give me a great one. That must've done it. I'll probably never be be allowed to have friends over, but I got the apartment I was in love with. I'm pretty excited about it.
I know funds will be super tight from now on, but it's cheaper than I expected to pay for a two bedroom, and I know I can afford it as long as I stop any extra spending. Plus, if I go under budget on my gas, food or electricity, that's just more money for me. I'm going to try to be a better saver from now on so me and Chloe have some emergency money to fall back on. Yeah, I'll admit it - I live from paycheck to paycheck and I've always been this way.
My mother came down Friday morning and spent the night to help me pack. I did get quite a bit done, but it still feels like there's so much to do. But as long as I can line some people and a truck up to help me move the big stuff, I'm not going to worry about anything else.
I'm looking forward to getting out on my own and being completely independent for once. I've always either lived with roommates, a boyfriend or my mother. This is something completely new to me.
The catch? I probably won't get my internet bill paid off at my current apartment in time to move it to the new apartment. Hopefully I can have it all hooked up quickly, but if not I will be missing from my blog for awhile.
Sadness, I know.
I'm not going anywhere for a little while yet. But it will be an adventure, that's for sure.
