In five years of living in New York, I have lived in a basement apartment with no windows and an apartment in a fifth floor walkup that people have to walk through to get to the rest of the apartment and the landlord has responded to our requests to replace our dead lightbulbs by handing us a ladder. 
Tonight when we told our leasing agent about this, she responded by telling us “you have all these bad apartments now, so that you have good stories for later.” 
In late May, I will start moving into a building with an elevator and a real bedroom with windows. This is the universe giving me a solid. Pay your dues kids, live in apartments that will leave you with “stories” and this is what you’ll get.

Reblogging due to the fact that we are no longer moving out of our apartment (life got in the way of our big move plans) and instead giving our little brick walled home a new breath of fresh air over the summer.
