House searching is just the beginning...
So living in the U.S there are its ups and downs. Especially around the living situation. You do kinda get more for your money (compared to Tokyo living) Which is nice. And you dont have to worry how far it is from the train station because you dont really walk.Which is also nice that you dont have to worry about. But one thing that hit me hard this time..Is that in some parts of CA there is no Rent Control (Rent control refers to laws or ordinances that set price controls on the renting of residential housing. It functions as a price ceiling.) I had never dealt with this issue before and it hit me now! Right when the economy isnt doing so well...(not a smart move on their side...everyone is moving OUT!) So I get a notice that if I dont move out within the next 60 days they will raise the rent $550!! That would be a mortgage I could be paying instead of an apartment! So, I panic. I move a lot. Ever since I was little. I dont mind the settling into a new city or country. I just mind the MOVING! and the SEARCHING!! argh! For the past 3 days straight I have been driving up hills, and down in parts of Hollywood I never knew existed! My body aches for being in the car so long. OH! And i have met some very interesting people!
Iam sure searching for a new place wouldnt be so stressful if I had time and wanted to move out on my own will....but when there is a limit....eeeek! Not so fun!! So if I cant post for a few more days, just know that Iam house hunting! Wish me luck!!! Iam going to need it! :)
