I first tried finding a place on Craigslist, which was…well. It was trying to find a place on craigslist.
So, I called up a real-estate place, and got an appointment.
I walked in to the office and sat down with the guy, and he was all “What are you looking for?”
and I was like “I want a kitchen. Like. I want a place with a stove-top and/or oven.”
and he said “They all have that.”
and I said “FANTASTIC!”
and then like, twenty minutes later, he was talking about neighbourhoods, and views and stuff and said “Is there anything else that you’d prefer?”
and I said “…I’d really like it to have a fridge.”
and he said “They all have those too.”
and I said “Even if they’re unfurnished?”
and he said “Those aren’t *furniture* they’re *appliances*.”
and I said “OH! Than…anywhere, really. That’s great.”
…and that’s the story of how I found my beautiful, fantastic, freaking incredible apartment.
I’m an adult!
…or something. 😀
