Changes Come In Threes

This article was written by in Uncategorized. 6 comments.

Yesterday, I made it official: I gave notice to my “community manager” to inform her that I will be moving out of my apartment by June 30. The sixty-day notice is required by my lease, as I was reminded this morning when the manager called me to inform me I would be responsible for an additional 30 days. It seems she didn’t realize that April 30 is two months away from June 30, not one. Don’t worry, I reintroduced her to the calendar we’ve been using for the last few centuries.

In any case, I must now start the search for a new apartment. My girlfriend and I have been talking about living together. She works in Queens and I work in (sort of) North Jersey, and splitting the difference would put us in the middle of Staten Island.

Finding a place in Staten Island I can afford and like will be an issue. This will be an interesting challenge to overcome during the next two months.
