Officially moving out soon

December 2nd, 2008 at 05:14 am

My dad is hoping that I will give up by not helping me in anything.

Well I don't care, I am moving out. My dad will pay for my education like he said but the rest, he doesn't want to hear about it. That's fine with me.

I talked with my friend who I am going to live with. She told me the owner told her that we can have the key to the appartment right away. We decided on a date to move... Well, I want to move out this Friday or next Wednesday. Since I have prepared some stuff already, why not move out soon. I have stopped spending too much since I know I am going to move out soon.

Well... I have to see what my first month budget will look like. I hope that it will a great experience for me. I know I have to pay 325$ every month. This amount included everything like water, heat, trash fee,internet and all the basic applicances... Even couches for our living room, a double bed/sofa, a single bed, a refrigerator,etc. You get what I mean?!!! =O All we need to pay is our cellphone bill, food, electricity, bus pass, entertainment,etc. The owner might install a satellite cable for the whole building. OMG... We are so lucky.

My friend is going to ask the owner if he is going to come often to our appartment --> Office thingy tomorrow. Oh yeah. We also have to watch his little daughter (15 years old) and maybe his dog from time to time LOL. That will be cool. His daughter is very sweet, I saw her a couple of times at my workplace and she gets along very well with her dad.

So I gave my friend 160$ for the rent last week. I don't know if I have to pay the full rent price or not. Since I am going to China, I might pay a part of the 325$. Since I am comming back sooner than expected. Around the 31st or 1st January, I will work more. Hopefully, it will work out xD.

This will go to my sweet future category. It is a great experience for my friend and I.

    How exciting for you. Please,please,please be sure to get everything in writing from your landlord with regard to his"office space", watching his dog and daughter. I know it sounds like I am being a "negative nellie" but this office space in your apartment sounds kinda strange to me. Your first priority is to keep yourself and your stuff safe and secure. Please get EVERYTHING in writing.

    Good Luck with your first place.

    yes it's very exciting, and i look forward to hearing about your settling in - oh to be moving out of home again! i remember it being so new and exciting, i think i even got excited about paying bills and stuff lol! but like i said before - and like susan says, get it all in writing and make sure the rules are very clear. i too dont want to sound negative but if i were you i would feel just the tiniest bit weird about a guy using my house for his office. maybe try to find out when he won't be there - weekends, nights etc.

    I agree about caution regarding the unusual set up with the landlord, especially him having office space in your apartment. However, I also can tell you that some of the most incredible rental deals I have heard of have involved unusual arrangements among unusually flexibly thinking people....I'm excited for you--moving to your first place and going to China all in the same month! Fabulous!

    Make sure you purchase renters insurance! For as little as $6 a month you could save yourself some major headaches. When I was renting and had my car insured by the same company the discount on my car policy for having the renters insurance was more than the renters insurance.

    What I mean is that I saved money on my car policy because under my renters policy if my car got damaged at my residence by fire the renters policy would cover it not my car insurance. The discount for the "Fire Coverage" was $120 a year and the renters policy only cost $72 a year.
