S&G 1

(no subject)

Sometimes I walk into this apartment and it makes me mad. It's nothing that we have any control over; it's how damp and basementy this place smells. I've deodorized the carpet but that hasn't done any good. I've burned candles and liquid potpourri and that just makes it smell like candles in a basement. What I really want is to get new carpeting, but that will never happen. Not for $475 a month.

It makes me want to move. Until I think about the location and the price, which are the two big reasons we're here. And the two big reasons we'll most likely be staying at least another year.
