I Wanted to Live in a Place That I Had My Eye on
I had been looking for a place to rent that was in my price range for a long time. But there are a lot of people in this city, and you have to move quickly on anything that you see for rent that is affordable. One day, an old friend called and said she wanted someone to take of her place for a year, and wondered if I was interested. She sid that she just needed to get someone to come by the place who handles AC repair in NYC before I could come over and look at the place. I told her that I didn’t care if the AC wasn’t working at that very moment, I wanted to go right away to sign a lease agreement!
I couldn’t believe my luck that I had found a place to live for the next year so easily. I had been looking for ages, and not finding anything that I could personally afford. I needed a bigger place because the one I had been living in was pretty cramped. I had been working at home in my studio apartment, and I felt that I didn’t have enough room. I no longer wanted to be forced to sit on my bed to talk to important clients about important things. I wanted to have a real desk and an office chair. My tiny studio didn’t even have enough room for a dinner table, so I used my bed and the nighstand to work on.
I raced over to see my friend’s place that same afternoon. She and I had a good time catching up. We had not had a chance to see each other in a few years. I loved the place, and she was hapy that I wanted to rent it. I will be moving in soon, and I can’t wait to do that!
