What a Day


Tags: , ,
Plane ticket to New York City (round-trip) for month-long research trip from July 12 to August 8 ... $150 (good deal!)

Shuttle for ride to housing from airport and vice-versa ... $30

Housing in New York City for a month ... $1,100 (and that's cheap for NYC)

Picking up motorcycle with working speedometer / odometer ... $160

Security Deposit for rental house ... $1,250

Knowing the bike is working, the research trip is happening, and I will have a place to live when my current lease ends ... Priceless

Not knowing exactly where the money is coming from to pay for all this and not having roommates for said place to live, thus being responsible for the entire rent of the house until I find people ... Whatever is the opposite of Priceless


In related news, my current roommate moved out all her large furniture (bed, desk, dresser, coffee table, couch, dining room table and chairs, etc) tonight. She's packing a suitcase of clothes and officially living at her new place beginning tonight. All the rest of her clothes and her general stuff (DVDs, food, games, pictures, etc.) are still here and she'll move it over the next week or two, probably mostly later this week when she has a couple days off. Also, I got the call that my credit app for the new house had been approved as my friend was dropping me off at the bike shop. I said I'd call back for directions to drop off the security check once I got home, a 25-minute or so drive. So of course when I got the directions it turned out I needed to drop the check off someplace that was about a block and a half from the bike shop. Literally. It was a traffic light away on the same street. I had to drive all the way back and was slightly annoyed with myself, but I'd figured I'd need to take it someplace in Williamsburg, not the next town over, and had seen no need to call from the parking lot of the bike shop. Live and learn, eh?

Things seem to be coming together, even if you can't exactly see how all of it will yet! Fingers crossed for your roommate situation to sort itself out ASAP.

It is nice that thinks are getting done. I'm not overly worried about the roommate thing. It really is just the money thing that is a problem now but my eternal optimism is popping back up and saying "It'll all work out."
