I am so sick to DEATH with looking at apartments. No matter where i look, rent is sky high! How on earth is anyone supposed to be able to afford an apartment, most with NOTHING included, with the way jobs are right now?! I'm lucky to have a job that isnt paying minimum wage, and so is Adam, but when it comes down to it, neither of us can afford to spend over 1,000$ a month just so we can have a roof over our head. Forget paying utilities, or buying food...
Having a mortgage payment would be the SAME as having a 2 bedroom apartment!!!! (with just a little bit more in a down payment)
I saw a 2 bedroom apartment today, 1500$ a month, with nothing included, and on top of it, they want first and last months rent PLUS security. That means you have to have 4500$ before you can even consider moving in...on top of having more money to turn your electric and gas on...who the hell has that kind of money just laying around...to pay for a RENTAL?!!?
I am so so so so sick of Adam and I living in two different places that its not even fucking funny. Its to the point where i LEGIT throw a tantrum because of this situation but theres not a damn thing anyone can do about it because i live paycheck to paycheck...
Someone said to me the other day, "when i was your age, i was married and bought a house..." Yeah, you bought a house, 20 years ago when people COULD pay for things...you were married, 25 years ago because you COULD pay for a wedding. Now, forget living together and forget getting fucking married because its not even an option...there isnt any money for either.
I have applied for better jobs, to a whole bunch of different places...and I am STILL on the waiting list for my state job, which now i hear they arent even progressing on the list because the state cant pay them...Did you hear that....THE STATE CANT PAY THEIR EMPLOYEES...people are getting laid off. People that have families and have houses are losing their jobs...So what are they going to do without their 50,000$ a year jobs? Work their asses off for minimum wage, IF they can find something, because thats their only options...just so they can ATTEMPT to keep a roof over their children's heads and put some sort of food on the table.
If the state is in debt (rephrase, the entire country)...what makes these landlords think they are going to rent out their properties at the prices they have set?? News flash, they arent.
So people like me, are going to be living with their parents when they should be living on their own and having their own families.
Paying for things was so much easier in Alabama and Texas...I had a beautiful house in Texas, that i paid for myself...and here, i cant even get a one bedroom apartment to share with my fiance.
WHAT THE FUCK NEW YORK??!!
Anyway, thats enough bitching out of me...I am already fucking pissed off...if i keep writing, Ill just get more pissed and i have to go bust my ass at my 9$ a hour job in thirty minutes.
