Feels like an uphill battle

I'm trying to sell my contract for my apartment. I really didn't think it would be so hard. I thought there would be enough people that would jump on the chance to get a decent apartment. I've had two people contact me. I guess my biggest problem is that I am impatient. I want it to be sold. And now! In all honesty, there is no big hurry for me to move out. My rent is almost all paid for the year and my roommates are really quite nice. I just don't want to wait anymore!!

I've posted my info everywhere. Campus- the TSC and the Institute,, The Statesman online, Craigslist,, Facebook Marketplace, and just on my status! Only two people have gotten back to me and it was from Craigslist. I think I lost the one girl after I told her that there isn't a washer and dryer in the apartment.

The other girl is... well very interesting from what I can tell. She'd from Finland and she is a "young professional". I don't think she understands what exactly I'm offering. And because her grasp of English is very... limited (she's apparantly lived here for 13 years) it's very hard to make her understand. At first she thought she was moving in with me. I think she now understands that I'm moving and she's taking my place and that she's moving into a furnished apartment with three other girls, who are students. I feel bad about foisting a foreign roommate on my current roommates. But student housing is a crap-shoot. Unless you have all your roommates picked out before hand you don't really know what you're going to get.

Whew, now that I have that all out. Maybe I can breathe. I'm really hoping that something works out. Whether with this Finnish girl or with someone else. I'm ready to move on. Wish me luck.

  1. I still want to know why you're moving... especially at the beginning of the year?
