This week I found out that my management company will not be renewing any leases, including mine. I'm extremely bummed because I was expecting to live in my apartment for at least two more years. I'm especially annoyed because I'm not done yet! I still have so much to do in order to feel like my apartment is complete! My lease is ending on May 31, 2011 and because legally they can not kick me out this month, I am 'going to be a month-to-month tenant'. That means I won't be homeless at least until July but I have already started looking for a new place, and as silly as it seems my ears perk up when I hear the words "Fourth floor walk up." We're going to look at one tomorrow on the Upper West Side, so we'll see how things go.
If anyone reading has a lead on a place, please shoot me an email. We must pay less than $2,000, we need at least a 1bdr. that is dog friendly and in a safe area.
I'd love to find a place where I could in a sense pick up where I've left off. My boyfriend built the wall unit in such a way that it can be transported in pieces - so we don't have to worry about leaving that behind. I am expecting that there will be some unplanned issues as that will come with the territory in any other place we move into. I am going to keep my blog Fourth Floor Walk Up, but this move is going to have to be a new chapter that hopefully will be better than the last. I believe that everything happens for a reason, so I have to accept any transition that occurs within my life.
