Apartment, Day 4: Settled

I’m getting an 18-month lease for a $25/month rent raise – I’m the one who requested 18 months. I’d like to put off the next negotiation as long as possible, and I’m banking on having a whole new, more profitable skill set up and running within 12 months so that not only will I be able to handle whatever the economy throws at me – I might even be able to upgrade to a larger unit…if I want. Honestly, I love my alcove studio. It’s L-shaped, with the little part of the L perfect for a queen-size bed, and a windowsill for a bedside table.

Now here’s hoping for a decent night’s sleep. And maybe the $6.29 tube of Garnier Nutrisse face scrub I couponed down to 50 cents at CVS tonight will help with the stress-acne.

  5. As long as you are happy and it sounds like you are. It must feel good to have that settled. I understand not wanting to uproot yourself, I’m the same way.
