10:12 pm - shoot to thrill
after much dread and suspense, the new landlord DID figure out that my lease is expiring in a week after all. he emailed on sunday, saying he apologizes for not realizing it sooner and asking me to sign a new lease--with an extra $100 slapped on there.

which is... probably what the old landlord would have done anyway. i was fully expecting him to tell me to pay ~$300 more or GTFO, and then expecting to have to GTFO. this guy even gave me an extra month before it becomes effective, because he dropped the ball.

so, i said okay. i'm reupping for year 7. it could have been so much worse. he could have also just said your lease is up, you have 30 days to get out. that would have been very bad.

i mean, it's still hard to ignore the fact that i'm now paying a whole imperial shitload for a 1-bed in the university district, for godsake, but at this point... staying is a lot cheaper than moving. moving is fucking expensive! i don't have anything close to a first/last/deposit. hell, i don't even have a real job right now, and my credit stinks, and there also are about five total apartments available in seattle, reportedly, so i doubt i could compete with rich-ass amazonians for them.

plus stephen and i will be in the caucasus for two weeks in late october/early november, so if i moved, i'd have to get it all done BEFORE we left. which would only give me about a month and a half to find a place, somehow get approved, scrape all the funds together, and move all my things into the new place. and clean the old one, good christ. while being swamped in freelance work, as i have been lately. un-possible.

plus even if i'd have found a new spot, then i would have to actually move, which is a prolonged exercise in human misery. and the poor cats would be traumatized, and where would i put my 6-foot papier-mâché viking ship and cetera. like, sure, i could save maybe $2k-$3k over a course of a year if i found a cheaper place, but it would cost me at least that much in psychic agony to have to move, and to an undoubtedly worse apartment in a less optimal neighborhood. it's a lot easier to tread the water here than be thrust into a new, mysterious ocean. and to meet the unknown devils lurking within.

which is a moot point, though, because it's really not possible.

plus my apartment is so beautiful and huge and awesome and cool. and it already has all my things inside of it. i love it. imo stay.
