That's our Hitler!

May 9th, 2009 at 01:34 pm

It's been a few days but I'm coming up for air after many hours of studying for finals.

Mark (my boyfriend- I don't think I've ever used his name on here)and I found the perfect apartment! It's a few minutes away from where I currently am and is right across the street from a couple of my friends. It is in a great neighborhood and the apartment is beautiful. It has 3 large closets! One will serve as a pantry/linen closet and the other two will be for myself and Mark (we are each getting a closet- I have a lot of clothes!).

Best of all is the price. $625/month all utilities included! Can you believe that? All we would have to pay for is internet/cable/phone (or two of those three)! A co-worker of mine actually used to live there and she says it is a great place to live.

We have to go back in early July to turn in the application and everything (they won't know until then what apartments will be available for August). I'm so excited about this! In June we'll start going to thrift stores (there are two nice ones within walking distance) to get kitchen supplies and everything. My grandma is giving us some furniture and my dad will be giving us some duplicate kitchen stuff he has.

I'm going to go to the movies in a little bit. It's been months since I've been and I need a break from studying. So a friend and I are going to see "Star Trek".

I've been considering getting a Kindle2. The videos of it on Amazon make it seem really cool. I always carry a book with me and it would be nice to have access to several books in one device. It is expensive- $360. I'm thinking this will be my reward to myself for when I meet my goals. There's a very good chance I will change my mind later- I'm very fickle when it comes to shopping.

Anyway, that's about it for now. I hope everyone has a good weekend while I'm slaving away at my desk...

    Have you seen the movie "The Producers" (original)? It's a line from the movie. In it, the producers are holding auditions for their musical "Springtime for Hitler" and when they come across the guy they want to cast as Hitler one of the producers says "That's our Hitler!".

    That's where I got the line from.

    lol (about the line) Big Grin
    when DF and I first moved in with a friend four years ago we also got a lot of stuff from op shops (most of which we still have!). it is amazing on how little you can get by on, so my advice is to set yourself up with the minimal things first (eg a bed, a lounge, a table, knives, forks, spoons, bowls and cups and a saucepan and frypan if you don't have these) and then slowly stock up on others once you're moved in - it is much easier to move this way, and you don't buy things because you 'need' it but rather get time to look around and get the best deal/better quality/nicest one.

    It's funny you should mention that whitestripe. The other day I was looking over the stuff I listed as a "need" and realized I could probably do just fine without them for awhile. Admittedly, I am a little spoiled and used to certain luxuries and I just have to adjust to making do with less. I'm going to try to really cut down my list of apartment "needs".
