I think my boyfriend and I were lucky. We have a good roommate and the first place we checked into ended up being the place we moved to. Furnishing an apartment and the actual moving is the hard part, but I’m just happy to be out of the hellhole I had been living in and reluctant to leave because the rent was low… Y’know… til that owner screwed me on a sketchy water bill and kept trying to hike up rent when I was under a lease. Hope he enjoys the constant rotation of drunks, druggies and rent-runners he has now. I was the last stable tenant he had.
