DIY or not?

Sigh, sometimes I ask myself why I subject myself to such torture?

Instead of finding an agent to help me do the legwork, I am instead the one taking steps to help myself find an apartment.

My specifications are simple:

* Big room with big closet (to fit all my clothes)
* Walking distance to any MRT blue line (from Xinpu to Kunyang is acceptable)
* Has own bathroom, washing machine/dryer (of course!) and ADSL. Double bed or bigger a plus
* Ideally less than NT$15,000 though this is negotiable

I’ve already checked out the expensive apartments at Tealit, the harder-to-understand forums at Forumosa and now moving on to Yahoo! Apartments. My friend Dave has suggested I look for a realtor, and has suggested me one. I’ll contact him later, but right now, am busying myself in checking out pictures at apartment.

The last time I did this, I checked out 20 apartments in 2 days, finally settling on the apartment I have right now situated at the ultra-convenient Shida road.

But then again, it was fulfilling when I found a place.

As they say, it’s the journey, not the destination.

Besides, not really comfortable in asking people to do the work for me, when I can obviously take care of myself

Good thing though, at least, my friends have been very helpful!

However, I don’t really know how much time I can devote to this endeavor…

I am working after all.

And there’s just so much in my schedule right now in preparing for the new changes I’ll have in life and organizing an upcoming kick-ass party at the Sheraton end of July. 🙁

Oh yeah, and dating. Let’s not forget that. 😉

Goodness, I do hope I survive these next two months. I think I am starting to see a grey hair here and there.

Oh and I’ll post later on what’s been bothering me. To give you a hint on what’s coming, I’m entitling that entry, “Sex makes the world go round?” 😛


P.S. Just in case you’re wondering, am not being kicked out by my landlord. It’s just that, after living there for 2 years, I felt I needed to make a change (step two of the changes I’ve talked about before), and get myself a better closet (some of my clothes are in plastic bags for goodness sakes) and ADSL. In short, giving myself a better living apartment. Okey, getting off the mike now. 🙂


About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
