Well, I have big news. I’m moving in with D., sort of. The apartment above his opened up and I decided to take it, so we’ll have the whole building except for the first-floor garage. D. got a price of $950 for both his space and mine, so if we split that rent, he’ll be saving $175 and I’ll be saving $225! Of course it’ll cost money to move though. The space is really dirty and full of wood and shit, because the last tenant was a messy painter who built his own frames (and shit). I will have to spend some time cleaning and hauling stuff to the dump and maybe painting a little. I like the room a lot, though. I’m all excited and scared at the prospect of living with D. after knowing him for less than a year. He’s scared too, but we feel real optimistic about it nonetheless. It was just an opportunity we decided to jump on. Really, I can’t wait.
