The Van Down by the River
I need to move out. And boy have I been trying. I had two friends who decided to get a 2 bedroom without me. I have one friend who is content to stay at home. Other people I would live with moved out a long time ago and are already set with a lease.I have three choices. One: move out by myself. But, it’s expensive. I’d basically be working just to pay bills. Two: I might be able to move out with my friend, but he is unsure right now because his girlfriend is graduating college and they might move in with each other. Three: I can get an apartment with two other dudes whose lease is expiring in May. But, one of the dudes is really sloppy and has a completely random work schedule, i.e. he is a musician/bartender. Plus, I’m a grad student who needs quiet. All I’m saying is, I see conflict in that arrangement.
Option two is ideal. But, it might not happen. Option one is do-able. I’d be broke, really, really broke. I’d live in a small apartment and be home poor. I’d never be able to go out. All my money would go to bills and expenses (gas, food, beer). Plus, the only 1 bedroom I could afford would be the kind with one big room with a kitchen in the corner and a small bedroom off to one side–basically one big square studio. I could get a nicely sized 1 bedroom in a sketchy neighborhood, but who wants that. Getting a cheaper and smaller one room studio is not going to happen because I need space. I hope my friend jumps on board. Or else I got decisions that need immediate attention. Live broke? Or, live grimey with my two other friends. What to do? What the hell to do!?!?
