After all of four days of searching, we found a place to live! I’ll be living with my good friend Jeff, who will be attending law school at the University of Washington in the fall. It’s in a nice section of Greenlake not far from where the work VanPool would pick me up. In fact, I think it’s the perfect location: walking distance to the VanPool and walking distance to Greenlake.
We put down our holding deposit and will get the official word on Wednesday.
In total, we looked at four places: one condo (as a rental), one house, and two apartments.
Things have been quiet here (my website, that is) for a while. I can’t say that nothing exciting is going on, because lots of exciting things are going on. I just haven’t felt compelled to write really. I do have a couple of posts I’m working on regarding my drive from Colorado to Seattle, but those will have to wait for me to finish getting by pictures uploaded.
My brother left for a 9 week trip to Greece. I think he’ll have a great time and experience lots of growth while he’s there.
Work started last Friday. It’s fun and I love the people I work with. I do not, however, enjoying getting up at 5:30am. Unfortunately, this is not something that is likely to change now or in the future.
I also hate $4.29/gal gas; apparently not as bad as in San Francisco, but still ridiculous none-the-less. To that end, I have decided to VanPool to work. It costs $50 a month to be in the VanPool, which is $150/month savings on gas (and doesn’t include whatever fuel it takes to drive the five minutes to the Greenlake Park and Ride).
