Daymonster Needs a Home

This post is short and lame and with no pictures. I don't have much time today but I really need your guys' help.

I am in the market for a new apartment. I looked at about 4 places yesterday and I am looking for some help. I greatly value the opinions and thoughts of the distinguished KofC members, (not so sure about that Playboy character, but I am willing to listen).

Basically I am look for a one Bedroom for less than 1200 / month. I found one older 1 bedroom that allowed dogs and had plenty of room but some girl was already applying for it when I walked in to take a look. I applied for it anyway and told her that I hoped she had bad credit as I left.

I found another brand new 1 BR that has a balcony and a separate kitchen with all new appliances, counter tops and cabinets. The building has a decent fitness center and its located across the street from a grocery store. The one problem is I would be about 400 meters from the nearest El stop and it's a bit farther north than I would normally want to be. It's about 5 blocks away from Wrigley field and it's just under 1k per month. But the worst part is, there is no Air Conditioning. I could put in a massive window unit but that would kind of a pain in the ass.

My other option is a much much smaller one bedroom that also has a new kitchen but no dish washer. It's right across the street pretty much from the El stop and is about 2 blocks away from Wrigley field. The main living room is really small and I can't imagine how I could fit stuff in a way that would make all my shit fit. There is also no balcony or air conditioning. But the rent is like 150/month cheaper.

I'll keep you updated on my progress but I wanted to know what you guys thought about these places. I appreciate the help.

Sort of a sick story Daymonster, I feel bad for you, each place had a major draw back. If you move back to Minnesota you would not have any of these problems, because you could come live with us.

Or, you could get a 2 bedroom apt. like mine for 500 bucks less than what you're budgetting....

Daymonster said...

But then I would have to live in Owatonna...

Will Arnett's gamertag is Roncore... befriend him.

I agree with Josey. Each does seem to have a major drawback, but honestly, you need space for your shit. Therefore, the third one seems out in my eyes. Thanks for listening anyway.

I liked the link. I find that guy super funny, its good shit that he plays COD4. It is going to be sweet when we are all old and can play video games all day.

I think you should get in touch with that one chick's bank and make it worth their while to bring her credit down. At least for a short time so that you can steal the apartment from her. I think that would make for a great story. But that's just me. On a serious note, I vote for the second choice. You need your space. It would suck to be cramped in a small apartment, especially with all of your electronic goodies.

Daymonster said...

yeah the sales tax is rough i just bought a suit and i paid 50 bucks in tax...

I buy all my clothes in MN now.

Hey Daymonster, I can get you an apartment for about 450 a month, new appliances, new carpet, pet friendly, and in a good neighborhood, but it would be one hell of a commute to work every day. If you don't mind a 3-4 hour flight it would be good.

Not a particularly interesting story, but the pic makes it look exactly like Ace & Gary's car, haha.

Pete said...

Pete said...

Pete said...

Pete said...

Pablito Neal said...

i doubt the person besides daymont who voted 75+

Josey WaIes said...

I voted 75 +, I ate 60 in one hour last night, I could eat 16 more in another hour.

Daymonster said...

Thanks for the support Toby... Man a free room at $10/week allowance is REALLY appealing. I am not joking it really is.

Unky Eternal said...

60 in an hour josey? Wow. New question: How many double stuffed oreos in an hour?

Daymonster said...

I think the double filling is a negligible difference. You run into real trouble with the cookie parts.
