I'm still here... :)
This semester at school is almost over, giving me a couple weeks until I dive into the last Maymester, Summer and Fall semesters of my life (hopefully). Next year at this time I will be graduating with my B.Sci. in Computer Science.
We put in an offer to lease an amazing townhouse about four miles away from our current apartment and are waiting to hear back on Monday. The place has three levels, three bedrooms, four(!) bathrooms, a wide open second level ("great room"), granite countertops in the huge kitchen, plush carpet, travertine flooring and FiOS. I have great rental and employment references, plus the unit has sat vacant for five months so I'm betting the "credit that looks like a funny car at a monster truck rally" won't be much of an issue (esp. with the deposit we're offering).
Speaking of Internet, our Internet connection is down and has been for about 24 hours. Fortunately, tethering through AT&T 3G devices isn't difficult and hopefully our regular link comes back up by Monday. If not, we're not going to be here much longer so I'll just get an AT&T data card and share it out to our network. The other offerings here aren't worth either the contract they'd require or the hassle of getting set up.
