Feeling better and worse right now.

Brookline has me worried. A 8/1 lease end date has me worried. A driveway shared with a stranger has me worried. A 7/1 move-in (swap, really) date has me vaguely worried. Other, cheaper options seem easier and closer, and cheaper. And I feel like I should have gone off on my own, instead of tying my fate to the guys...

Bleah. At least Ed's apartment is rented now. More importantly, I don't feel bad about that at all. It was way too expensive.

What to do, what to do. Maybe the driveway will work itself out. Maybe the move date will be all right. If those happen, then I think I'm all right with the lease ending in August... Apparently it's not an unheard of moving date.

Re: hmmm...
Thinking about what it would be like to live at the places, though, that was what nearly got me into the too-expensive 1BR in Davis Square. I mean, this was *right in* Davis, upstairs from the T, essentially. Beautiful location. No activation energy to get out the door in the morning, easy to just get up and go. Hang out in the square in my off hours, hop on over to the Diesel to hang out, or Your Move Games... Hit McKinnon's or that grocery store for fresh-ish small market groceries. It would be the life.

Though life two blocks from Coolidge Corner will be interesting in its own way. In a way I'm kinda looking forward to trying it. :) Theater, Trader Joe's, Sushi Places. Lots to recommend the area.

And I'll have *so* much more living space, living with the guys in this Brookline place. I find myself psyched for it again, suddenly.

Thanks for the advice... Believe it or not, I actually did some of that already, when I was in Minnesota ("my" room in my parents' house is an excellent place to get away and thing :) and made the pros and cons list... Unfortunately, I made the decision on a false premise at the time. Allow me to explain.

I wrote down the pros of two options: 1) stay with the guys, live in Brookline, or 2) move into the 1BR place that a coworker was moving out of, right in Davis Square. 2 was deemed too expensive, as an overriding thing, that cause me to decide on 1 way too easily.

'cause now I am thinking that there are options 3) (move in with one of the group houses I know in the area) or even higher numbers... and I should have thought about those places...

So now I've committed to go with these guys if they go to Brookline. Since they cancelled appointments to see 3br places, and did things like that, when I said I was in. It's all right, really. It's an excellent place, I'll have to make sure to have people over to that one (unlike this one which I've just slept and watched tv in basically, despite it also being really nice)...

It's very good to hear that about the 8/1 lease date, though. I was worried we were digging ourself into a bad hole, accepting that. A few people have been saying what you said, though, now, so I feel better.

More to come...
