Well, the delirium has calmed down from my weekend of heat trauma so I’ve been able to think calmly and rationally, and do what any normal person would do — get a new apartment. Believe it or not, I already found one and I’ll be moving in within a few weeks.
I actually can’t believe I found something so fast, though I must say I was pretty inspired (and desperate) to get out. Lucky for me, I found a place only four blocks away so I’m still close to the parks and I don’t have to move to an unfamiliar neighborhood.
Best of all, it has a new HVAC system put in just a few months ago. When I went and saw it at noon, it was 66 degrees inside. Man, it was nice. I was ready to lie down and take a nap right then and there. That wasn’t the only thing that won me over, though. It’s on the lower level of a fourplex, has a huge living room and bedroom, and a very nice kitchen. Did I mention it has air conditioning?
In the meantime, I’ve done the only sensible thing to do while waiting to get into my new place: I’ve moved my bedroom into the kitchen and quarantined the bedrooms. It’s a nice 75 degrees in there and about 85 in the living room, so I think I can live with that. As long as I get some sleep, I should be fine.
Man, I’m glad that’s resolved. I never expected anything to happen so quickly.
