We have spent most of the week looking for an apartment. It is so time consuming. We are having a heck of a time finding a place and what makes it really hard is we don't know the area very well. Area is so important because you may find a nice apartment inside but there could be bullets whizzing by when you step out your door. What I am finding out is just a few blocks can be the difference between a good area and a bad area. Plus rental prices are really high right now. Even landlords are telling me that. There is an apartment for rent in the building where we are staying that is exactly the same as the one we are in but they want $500 more for the same place. It is just crazy. I really hope to find something soon. I feel like the last 6 weeks of my life I have spent looking for a new car and now a new apartment. I need to free up my time so I can focus on work and training.
