Lately I’ve been having some conflicts with my soon-to-be roommate (part 1 here). First, we talked about the dates that I should go to NYC for apartment hunting and agreed with August 21. We thought if we went within the first weeks maybe the landlords would make us pay at least half of the month of August and we don’t have budget for that. (I plan to move in by September.) Recently she spoke with some company her firm provided and they say we were pushing it, so now she wants to go somewhere between the first and the second week for apartment hunting. I try changing my flights but I bought them via Priceline.com so the one flight is from Delta and the other one is from American Airlines. They each charge $100 for changing the dates. That’s $200! It is completely unreasonable that I pay that amount. I mean that’s ¾ of another plane ticket. She suggested going herself the second week to search first but I already made the expense of the plane tickets so I don’t want to waste them on some pointless silly trip to NYC just because I already bought them. What am I going to do if she persists on going first and then she finds one?
I sure I can find an apartment anytime of the month and I told her to stop freaking out but she keeps at it and get a bit temperamental. She keeps insisting in what-if I don’t find an apartment. I made my plans and I’m sticking with them! I already told my cousin and she took the week of from work to help me. I can just bail like that and on top of that loose hard saved money. Sometimes I wished I could just find a nice budget-friendly studio for myself and avoid all this drama.
On a happier note, I made a spreadsheet on Excel with all the entries and went to Random.org where they chose an unbiased number. The winner chosen was not a follower! I’m so sorry T but I must stick to the giveaway rule of “followers only”! So I had to do a second selection of the winner. Wait? The second chosen was not a follower either! Sorry Jenny. This isn’t my lucky day... (here is proof)
