Here's an update to last night's project:
In NYC-related news, there was a pretty awesome flat I was looking at when I visited NYC last month that was the perfect storm of a good price, a good location, a good building, and hella rad roommates. I was under the impression that my renting the place was a pretty sure thing, but that fell apart last week with news from one of the potential roommates that there were other potential renters and that the person leaving may not be leaving as soon as he thought. My contact said we could talk in a week and she'd have a better idea of the situation. Today marked the aforementioned "next week" and she informed me that the only real thing preventing me from living there now was that the Guy Leaving's departure date is up in the air, with it likely falling sometime past the middle of June. I've already resigned myself to searching for other places, so this doesn't really impact my new plan much, save for the fact that the place still has some potential.
Anyway, the full apartment hunt begins next week, with a potential trip back to NYC to scope out my list of flats the following week. Departure date's still set firmly on June 1st, so let's see if I can swing it!
Go read about superfluids now. It'll inspire you...or at least make you think you've gone crazy.
