Single Status Update
So, I'm moving on Saturday. At least, I'm moving out... whether I have a place to move INTO, on the other hand, is still up in the air. Here's the rundown:
My 2 roommates have both moved out, and all I'm left with is my comp, turntable/speakers, CD player (via PS2), and a bunch of packed shit... I've spent about 90% of the week on the internet. That's not the good times, though.
What's really making my week stressful + boring is that, after a month of searching, I found a person in need of a roommate via Craigslist. Set it up, turned in the application, good to go... Right? Well, turns out this girl is from Minnesota (I'm in Missouri), and she's absolutely disappeared off the face of the Earth. So now I'm in dire need of a roommate, or else the rent/deposit goes up $150 each, which I can't afford, and as such, won't get the townhouse. Shit.
Well, yesterday, the other guy (Jake) found somebody who was looking for a place in Columbia, and offered him. This guy (Wes) gets the application, fills it out, aaaaannnnnd.... never faxed it. He's not local either. So now, I have to hope that he faxes the damn thing tomorrow and gets approved so we can sign the lease and move on Saturday. If not, then I'm pretty much fucked unless I can find someone to let me crash at their place for a couple of days while having at least $1000 worth of equipment sitting in my van (one guitar, amp, turntable, receiver, and 2 speakers). I only know one family that could squeeze me into their place, but I'd feel like a burden. Basically I'd be homeless and hope no one steals everything.
Basically, ever since May, this has been my life.
On a side note, I have some beer and I'm drinking it starting: now.
No, I didn't. You see, I had to drive 30 miles to turn in the application, but the leasing office was closed for the day.... 1 hour before they were supposed to be. So they waved the $20 fee that I would've had to pay.
Now all the apps are in, the landlord is processing the last guy's (Jake and I are set), and it looks good. On the flipside, the checks I ordered from the bank 3 weeks ago never arrived at my house. Today they tell me that they never placed the order... What. The. Fuck?
They're giving me a complimentary money order, but it took a good deal of hassle and "embarrassing myself in front of the customers" which actually means "making them look bad." So now tomorrow I have to:
-Go to the bank to actually make the order.
-Meet up with the landlord, and sign the lease.
-Move, which will probably take multiple trips
This passed the point of ridiculous a while ago.
