the apartment search continues. cambridge seems to be out, for my price range (i found a great job! but i would need to be making at least five grand more a year to live somewhere borderline nice, and ten thousand to be assured a great spot. which is insane, because anywhere else besides new york and san francisco, this would be a very comfortable living wage).
so: no news. i gear up to spend half my pay on housing and i'm a little anxious, wondering how i will find an apartment and turn it into a home.
