I've been looking at ads on craigslist for apartments and rooms in houses to see what's out there, available, general pricing, etc. Some of the ads I've seen are hilarious. Others are serious. But based on what I've seen, here are some thoughts on room ads on the website.
- Sleigh-style beds are fancy and look nice if the room is styled similarly and appropriately. However, lime green walls don't exude this at all.
- If you're posting a picture of a room where someone currently lives and sleeps...make sure the bed is made, and there aren't clothes and Victoria's Secret bags strewn everywhere.
- USING ALL CAPS AND ELEVEN EXCLAMATION POINTS AFTER EVERY SENTENCE IS SURE TO GET SOMEONE'S ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!! But not in a good way.
- Plum trees don't have a 'b' at the end. (Although the guy who lived in my parents' house before they did who drew a map of the property thought that it did as well.)
However, if Vic gets and accepts one of the jobs, then we'd definitely be looking outside the city for apartments that aren't terribly expensive. Once I graduate, we'll have two incomes instead of one and be able to afford somewhere else, should we decide to move from where he is at that point.
Either way, I'm very excited for him and the potential for jobs in a city he and I both love, and who knows, maybe I'll have some news to share soon.
