There's just one more thing sir...
Oh, yeah, I've also been feeling the itch to move to the Bay Area again - as impractical as that is. My friends are here, I have a fairly stable job here, etc. But, damn, I've been thinking about the Bay Area a lot lately. When rhysara asked about things to do on her trip out there, it really just stoked the fires again - hanging out at the Emeryville Public Market, walking around Telegraph Avenue on weekends, driving down the PCH just because, hitting J-Town in SF, driving up into the hills overlooking Berkeley and Oakland... *sigh*

In related news, my landlady is selling the building. Her father isn't well, so I guess she's selling to pull up stakes and go be with him. So I need to pick this place up a bit as the realtor will be showing it. I'd already decided that I'm going to move. I didn't stick to the house hunt last summer since I got real iffy about my job for a while, but since it seems like I'm probably not going anywhere for a while (barring TiVo making me an offer out of the blue - I've basically given up hope on finding an in) I'm planning to start looking again when it warms up.

I am: lonely lonely
Current Media: quiet

The Bay Area is absolutely fantastic for living, although all too expensive still. The south bay is less expensive but not as fun as areas around the city. I hope you find your place in the world! :)

I live in North Berkeley from 8/95-2/98 - 917 Virginia Street. I moved in just before rent control got lifted and I rented a two bedroom house with garage for ~$700 month. Nice. No one I worked with could belive it - I just have a knack for finding decent deals on housing. I was definitely more into Berkeley than SF, but with BART you could live anywhere along the line and still just BART into town.

High selling season in real estate is the summer, but if you're looking for a deal, you might do well looking now. It's harder to sell in the winter so you're more likely to find someone desperate to get rid of a place.
