Hope


I'm sorry for my absence.   In all honesty, the past couple/few days have been a real trial.  We have most likely passed on the perfect apartment I wrote about here.  It wasn't the apartment that was the problem, it was everything else.  There were just too many red flags flying concerning the management and landlord, and since we are just getting out of a bad situation with that, we are super gun shy.  We definitely don't want to make another mistake due to sheer desperation.  Out of the pot into the fire, so to speak.   I am pretty heartbroken, as I'm not sure a more beautiful apartment exists out there (right now.)  Let's just say pickins' are slim.  REALLY slim.  So, we are just stuck.  It's been hard to accept that and move on.  We are still fervently looking though.  We are NOT staying...we just want to find the right place.

As I'm sure many of you feel, my home is super important to me.  I need someplace that feels safe and personal.  It's hard when you are renting, but, I know it exists.  Although, at this point, it's feeling a little distant.  So, that is what is happening right now, I wanted to update you and give you good news, but, unfortunately, that's not going to happen in this case.  At least, not yet.  So, here's to hope right? Thanks for all the kind words and support.  I can't tell you how great it makes me feel to share and get your input on the things that make life, life.  If there is any other possibilities that arise, of course, I will share those with you.   Ah, finding an apartment, I tell you, it ain't easy...but, we will find a good one.  I can feel it.

You're smart to wait. Don't make a decision based on panic or desperation, it never turns our good. I guess that what it means to be an adult!

Oh no! Sorry to hear about that! I'm sure you'll find the perfect apartment :) Even if it feels like it's taking forev and a day. Best wishes for your apartment searching! I know how it feels to feel stuck in a not-so-great apartment :(

You will find that special place Nichole! xo

I'm really sorry to hear that! Just try to comfort in the fact that you may have dodged a bullet. It's good to go with your gut if you feel something isn't right. And who knows, maybe another gem will pop up!

I so know how you feel, the hubby and I had to move in a pinch when our home was completely flooded and our landlord refused to make the appropriate repairs. We only had a week to move!
Hang in there... you will find a great place. We did find a house, although it was a little further out then we wanted it to be, and now I'm chugging along to make it a beautiful & personal space.

Sweets - I know what you are feeling, but being pragmatic now will save you loads of heartache down the line.

And there are tons of apartments out there that have potential. Remember, you have a designer's eye and can see past alot of the "gunk" that normally deter others. Keep plowing through and know that you have a support team!

Hey Nichole,

I'm so sorry to hear about all of the trouble you are having finding a a new apartment.

We had the same problem when we moved to the boken two years ago.

I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for, but Applied Management has some pretty decent apartments.

We live in one of the Hudson Square buildings and have been very happy with the location (very close to the path) and the view, since we're across from the river.

The apartments are pretty bland, but with all of your skills, I'm sure it would be more than fine.

You're right to trust your gut. And after being a renter for my whole life, and coming from a family of renters, we now own and I'm not happy. It's not the place I want to be anymore but I'm stuck, we've been here three years and have to wait for prices to come back up before we can sell, or else we are out tens of thousands of dollars just to *leave*. Renting rules!... you'll find something, and you're right, you'll know when it's perfect. Good luck.

Sorry to hear that! But think of it as a possible blessing in disguise. Maybe that absolutely BETTER-THAN-PERFECT apartment is waiting just around the corner for you.

I totally hear you about renting though. While there are advantages, bad building management and bad neighbours can really make your life hell. :(

Wishing you look luck in the apartment hunt!

I know waiting is so hard! We were in the process of buying a house for SIX months before we decided to move on. I'm so glad we did - we found the perfect house and closed on it in a month! We love it.

Good luck to you. *hugs*

Oh Nichole, I'm so sorry. I feel like a total smuck because I just sent you an email having not read this and asked about the apartment. Argh...in any case, when these things happen you definitely have to think about it like if it was meant to be it would have been and all that it means is that there is an even more perfectly you place out there just waiting for you to find it. Big hugs!!! xo
