|Amanda, I hope your new landlord doesn't jack your rent too much...that is terrible that he would.
He would... and he will... to someone else. I have an update of my own... apparently, this mystery landlord has chosen to use his 'force-the-tenant-out-of-unit' card with the management. I have 120 days... which really only cuts my lease short one month. Moron. If I could talk to him, I'd assure him I'm not going to renew. I'm moving to Portland, for Chrissakes.
I got this letter under my door today. So, now my apartment hunt is in full swing, as well as my job hunt. I'll take retail... preferably management, since it pays better, but it's hard enough getting a job when you already LIVE in a city... it's harder when you live 2000 miles away.
I won't be able to buy my little yellow school bus here like I'd hoped... I was going to rehab one and drive it with the cats out there... they can ride in comfort. instead of being crammed into some carrier. I don't currently have a car here (i will when I'm out there... my best friend will be handing my old car back to me... complicated situation)... Amtrak doesn't allow animals other than service dogs. If I knew someone with an RV around here, I'd borrow it, or take them along for the ride. I refuse to fly, because I don't want my furkids to end up manhandled by some idiotic baggage handler. So, this leaves a rental car. Would rather not... but my dad isn't keen on me getting a bus, even though it'll cost nearly the same as a rental, and I can keep it. My head is spinning right now. i hate landlords, and people in general right now.
I've found several apt. complexes in Portland and Beaverton that I like... but most of them didn't have floorplans online. I need to see floorplans. I'm the kid of a civil engineer... so I read floorplans really easily. So, now i get to call/email several places and ask for them to send me floorplans. Grr...
My morning was lovely... my afternoon sucked. Now, I'm being really strange and entering all the places I found online, into a database in OpenOffice, so I can compare rates and square footage side by side. I'm such a dork.
My life has to improve at some point. Sorry for hijacking your thread. I just had to vent...
