Moving to a New Apartment

[via; not my actual place]

As of this morning, I've officially got a room at a new apartment!!

I am so excited about this place! It's a 3bed/3bath, 2-story unit with a month-to-month lease. It's in a quiet area of an awesome residential neighborhood with plenty of street parking, plus a 1-car garage that I can use whenever I want. The neighborhood is also very centrally located to everything in San Diego as opposed to my current location. My new roommates are two male late-20s lawyers, very laid-back and they seem outgoing, fun and clean. We talked for almost an hour while they showed me the place on Sunday afternoon. :)

I can move-in anytime since the room's available but I'm planning on waiting until August 1. (Current lease is up August 9th.) My room is a good size and it's separate from the main living area. Plus I have my OWN (tiny) bathroom in my room, which I'm really excited about. And my closet space is doubling. A girl can't complain about that! All the usual is included... dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas range (yay! I love cooking with gas) and decent storage place. There's also a small balcony and a BBQ!

It's 11 miles from work (I currently live 6 miles) so even though my rent/utilities are decreasing, I'll be paying a bit more in gas each month and I'll end up breaking even on my budget. A few stores and restaurants are a few blocks away and an awesome park is less than a mile away. I'll also be a mere 1.5 miles from the beach! Perhaps I'll buy a beach cruiser if I can sell my LoveSac?!

YAY!

Congrats on your new place! It's fun to have a new start and it sounds like it will lead to some savings, too. That's always a good thing. I hope you decide on renter's insurance, too. I lived in Boston for several years and was broken into twice. It's cheap and definitely worth the money.

Congrats! I love new apartments, and having your own bathroom is AWESOME!

Hmmm, this sounds amazing. Are, perchance, either of the roomies single? ;)

Two male roommates? Lol...how does that work out for a petite lady? I had two guy friends as roommates and college and would not do it again, bless their hearts.

My bf is from SD and his best friend lives around 6th & market st. I love visiting!

Thanks, everyone! I can't wait! :)

@PAG - I've actually lived with male roommates for the past 3 years! Two different sets of friends, and both times have been AWESOME. They're fun and there's no drama, even if they aren't necessarily the cleanest all the time. ;) I'm not sure if I can go back to female roommates, haha...bad experiences in college, unfortunately. I love the Gaslamp district! Let me know if you'd ever like to hang out when you visit :)

Congrats on your new digs! Finding a place is always such a relief! I'll be starting the moving process soon too and I'm really dreading it! I'll be in North County SD, so maybe you'll see me at Fashion Valley one day! =)

I've lived with 2 male roomates for a few months before... One was gay and the other was in the closet I think... they were both very neat so I had a good experience :)

Off topic, but I'm reading through your shopping tagged posts! I love reading blogs where shopping and PF come together :) :) Can't wait to see your Louboutin goal come to fruition!! =D
