A Quick Update: I’m Not Moving Anywhere


The rent is NOT too damn high today, Jimmy!

Last week, I wrote about a BIG increase to my rent.  My roommates and I were asked to EACH have to pay $250 more each month ( and possibly up to $333 /month more, long story).

As it turns out, the reported $1000 rent increase was a miscalculation. The rent is only going up $100 for the whole house. So, my rent increase will only be $25/month!!!

This was me about 2 seconds after I heard about the rent correction. I was … pleased.

Yes, I managed to get to an open field that quickly. I’m pretty fast.


This was me about 4 hours later. Ok, I was … very pleased with the news.

Ha. Omg! Some good news for once. I think it’s pretty official that I’m not moving anywhere for now.

Just wanted to give you guys a quick update. 🙂

    Woohoo! Glad to hear your good news 🙂

    I’m very glad you were misinformed about the rent increase. i’m still looking forward to you having a surge of progress (and myself as well!). It’s also nice that you were one of the ones kept in your current job when the axe fell.

    I hope you can avoid your unsupportive brother when you have the medical treatment, it’s not good to have negative input while recovering. He clearly has a grudge from the past.

    Good luck in the coming weeks and thank you for sharing your news.


  3. So happy for you!!!

    WHEW. Not gonna lie, I was pretty worried about you after that last post. I think you can handle $25 🙂
