I got the apartment! Despite the fact that all of the other applicants had longer credit histories and larger incomes (maybe), I got the apartment. The guy said “everyone liked you”, so boom, it’s mine. Now I get to cough up $3,600 for first month, last month, and security deposit. Fuckin a.
For the bad news, I may have lost $1,000. Ehh, don’t ask. We’ll see how that turns out.
