One More Year...
I went ahead and re-signed my lease, in order to stay in my same apartment for another year.
I was thinking about moving out, but if I moved then I would REALLY miss the Ghost in my apartment who I have grown to love so much!
It would be like breaking up with a lover!
I was tempted to move...so, I made a list of pros and cons. The 'Pros' won.
First of all, i absolutely hate moving! I spent so many years of my life moving from place to place, that it feels good to finally be in the same location for a while.
I've been in my apartment for a few years now, and was considering moving, in order to get a little bit bigger or nicer place.
However, my leasing company sweetened the deal by NOT raising my rent! This is the first time my rent won't be going up since i moved there. When I saw that on the lease, I pretty much peed my pants in shock!
I ran to grab a Boniva as fast as possible!
Also, I have been so busy with work and life lately, that I sort of just let time fly by, and didn't get a chance to really look around for a new place.
So...one more year it is!
Casper (my ghost) would miss me too much. I mean, who else would I get to fondle me in the middle of the night?!
I'm fine with this decision, as I am pretty comfortable where I am. I like the neighborhood, I like the building management, and the apartment has everything that I need for my lifestyle.
I've never really had to deal with loud neighbors, or other apartment-living annoyances, so it will be ok.
I do remember about a year ago, the guy who lived who below me had a tendency to sing.
Yeah, i had to stomp on the floor a couple of times, but then he got the hint! :)
Which reminds me of this great little video:
