- Wedding: May 2010
I am so excited right now and have no one to share it with b/c 1)FI is really busy at work (so am I, I’m just blowing it off) and 2) It’s a little premature..
Long story short, I have been in my ground floor apartment since I moved to NYC, 5 total years. I have 1 year left on my lease which has been depressing me since my building is getting louder and louder (with younger people moving in and putting up walls) and being on the ground floor it’s really bad.
It’s too complicated for me to break my lease completely, but this past weekend the guy (with lead shoes) in the apartment above me just moved out! His rent is only slightly higher than mine and the apartment is gorgeous and less noisy. I called the management company and they said they would transfer my lease, no problem.
FI and I just have to go look at it tonight to decide for sure! The only downside that’s obvious right now is there’s only 1 bathroom, we have 1.5 right now. But it’s a real 1-bedroom with large kitchen, living room, etc. and would definitely be an upgrade.
I am so excited about the idea that FI and I could actually now start off our married life in a decent apartment!! I mean, it’s still not a brand new doorman building or anything but definitely an upgrade!! 🙂 🙂
