Not fun at all.

Apartment hunting blows. I'm all ready to go. Got the job. Got the money. Got the stuff to fill the apartment. Don't have the apartment.

The first two I was interested in have turned into job interviews.

"Well, we have other applications under review, as well. I hope to make a decision..."

WHAT? Really? Ugh.

I'm just waiting for the call: "Thank you for your interest, but we've decided to go in another direction..."

I'm all too familiar with that line.

I've scoured Craigslist and all of the Internet. I've got a few numbers written down, and a flicker of hope. My new boss just gave me an "in" with some developers in the downtown area who own plenty of rent-able property, so today I'm on a mission.

I will find an apartment, dammit.

And when I have to move in 15 days, I will have somewhere to unload the U-Haul. I hope.
