So after a super-difficult summer (death, fire, bedbugs, et al), I stumbled upon this beautiful fucking apartment two days ago on craigslist. So perfect as to be a feverdream, and when I actually saw it at the open house today, I almost cried because it was even better than I expected.

I charmed the fuck out of the landlord. I brought her cookies. She hugged me. I offered a two-year lease and an extra month’s rent upfront. (My boss will spot me.)

I turned in the fifth application. I want this so badly, I spent most of today in actual physical pain. How perfect is this place?

1. It’s two blocks from our current place, so we’d get to stay in the neighborhood we love.

2. It’s full of windows.

3. Hardwood floors.

4. Possibility of cat.

5. LAUNDRY HOOKUPS.

6. One shared wall (BECAUSE IT’S A DUPLEX).

7. TWO CAR GARAGE.

8. Back. Fucking. Yard.

9. Central air.

10. Literally the exact opposite of all the problems we have with our current place, including an involved and caring landlady.

11. Also across the street from the new metro station that goes to the beach.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK I WANT IT SO MUCH
