New Apartment

It's June right now. And I'm apartment hunting. Or I was apartment hunting until today. I saw one today. An "efficiency". And I think I will take it.

It will cost a little more than what I am paying now. And that will be exacerbated by the fact that my pay, in all probablility will actually decrease! My guide will have to support me as a Research Assistant: which means that he will pay me. The money that he shall provide me will probably be lesser than what I am earning now. Some sort of existence will have to be eked out; wireless connections will have to be be stolen; meals will have to be sacrificed. Even more so, if I want to live in my own place!

I've been looking at places all around the city. I still found the one I saw today the best. I guess I will proceed to take that up. The location is very nice - almost where I am right now. Walking distance to the university. Safe too, I suppose. And I think the parking is under a tree or something. Will keep cool in winter.

I really want to get out of the place that I am "living" in right now. The room mate crashes downstairs (and never cleans the kitchen), the bed is crawling with bed-bugs, the air conditioner does not work in my room.

Life is quite good here, despite all that. I am playing tennis regularly. I am gradually getting used to driving the car everywhere. Good for me, I guess.

Oh well. There's no more points to be made right now. Had some rajma for dinner. Lumpy, unlike mom's. Maybe next time I could grind the onions and tomatoes.
