So the hunt continued today for a new apartment. My journey lead me to Ave B and 4Th st next to this great little breakfast/lunch place called Kate's joint. I love the neighborhood and can imagine spending hours wandering around taking photos and drinking gooood coffee.
Sadly the girl who was renting a room in her apartment was a little less inviting. She seemed extremely anal and although the apartment was the size of a small box she wanted to pay 60 dollars a month for a maid. I let that go and tried to look around at the better parts, mainly location and price. Her priorities seemed a little out of whack besides that my room was ridiculously small and it had a loft bed. Can you imagine asking some new guy to shimmy up the ladder first to the full size mattress above? Not the type of *bachelor* pad I was envisioning myself in.
I am not in a bind or desperate at this point for an apartment so I will continue to look. The place in Greenpoint is still a viable option and if it comes up I am going to take it. My room was huge, there was certain amenities like cable, Internet, and space that are more important right now. Vanessa is also definitely more on my level then this 30-something named Sharon who seemed a little too granola for my taste. Her bedroom was of course beautiful and I was living like a troll under the sink. she asked me if I had a lot of stuff...was she expecting me to just show up with a duffel bag and call it a day???
On the way back from the city this evening I opted for the train, which lead me to run into two girl's from High School who were both in law school. There lives seemed completely unglamorous and as they continued to talk about people I graduated with I realized everyone is doing basically the old humdrum thing. They are corporate suits or budding lawyers and work themselves silly while trying to move up the ladder..yuck!
Have you ever tried to navigate on the Diesel website? It is a maze of Flash and web design that I really can't be bothered with. I just want to see the overpriced clothes and be done with it!
Have I ever spoken about the glory of Daryl K before? The shit just looks so incredibly comfortable and understandable I am surprised it is not in everyone closet. It is almost like a no brainer and works with the heels and converse. Look at that black dress with asymmetrical button up collar. It even has pockets, which in my opinion all dresses should have. Trunk show here I come!
