turns out we'd rather have a good landlord.
the search continues. should i take a hint that capitol hill has a horrible absence of good, affordable apartments? 20 other people attended the open house at this apartment. and when we put up our apartment on craigslist, i had 17 responses within 12 hours. umm...yeah.
so best of luck to those trying to find an apartment on the hill. le sigh. i'm pretty bummed about this whole thing.
upside: i've been listening to the new ray lamontagne album to heal my bruised heart. it's working a little bit.
