While the physical act of moving completely sucks, there’s something to be said about having […]

As I was leaving for work Friday afternoon, a letter fell out of my door. I knew exactly what it was before I opened it: a letter from my leasing office that would define the new terms of my apartment lease, if I decided to renew. Having lived in my apartment for nearly four years […]
