YAY! [Jan. 28th, 2003|01:00 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Wow - my psychic vibes must have wafted down to Florida! Minutes after my long-winded post about waiting for my apartment, Linda from the Celebration Apartments called!

She let me know that a woman just contacted her letting her know that she is getting married and will be moving out soon. It's not 100% certain (she'll know the exact date in a couple of days) but our move-in date would be about the 2nd week of April. It's the largest (and most expensive) unit with a one bedroom floorplan. It has a lot of premiums, so the rent will be $895. We were trying to keep it under $900, so we just barely squeezed it, lol. It doesn't have a balcony, but that's ok.

Now - about the apartment! It is on top of the Celebration Town Tavern (which is a cutesy Disney-esque establishment - and YES, they serve veggie burgers!). It has a LAKE VIEW and is right on Celebration Lake! It's a second story apartment and we only have ONE NEIGHBOR. It's a CORNER apartment and has lots of WINDOWS (as opposed to the ONE window we have in our current apartment). It is TWICE the size of our current apartment. I can walk to the Post Office! I can walk to the Bank! I can walk to the little grocery store. I can walk to the adorable "Celebration 2" movie theatre. I'm so excited =)

I also talked to Linda about possibly upgrading to a 2 bedroom after we are there awhile. She said that we could do that at any time, and it's only a $200 fee to do it mid-lease. But for now, I'm happy with our new place!

yay yay yay happy congratulations and jumping up and down. it sounds like it's absolutely ideal to what you want... will you have to go down there between now and April?

gah! we have to get together before you vanish!!! although i know you'll come back for visits, and as long as there's internet, we'll always be in relatively inexpensive communication....

Yay!

Luckily we don't have to be there in person, we can do the lease and everything through the mail. As much as I'd like to go down and inspect the particular unit myself, I don't really have the time to. I'm trying to save some more money for furniture and stuff too and I probably shouldn't go on a quick vacation right now. You see, what would start out as just a visit to the leasing office would slowly turn into a week long vacation at Disney World (trust me, it's happened before - I have a weakness for vacations).

That's what I love about the internet! It's so much easier to communicate with everyone. I'm always pushing people to get online - it's the easiest way for me to keep track of everyone. I'm far more likely to make LJ posts, write emails, or Instant Messaging than I ever would be to make expensive long distance phone calls or rely on snail-mail.
