There's a Rainbow in the Sky

OK. It's a good day.

Found out I'm "approved" for the apartment just around the block from my current digs, on "Grand Ave." (one of probably very few non-Hispano street apellations in town). I'm happy with it: a somewhat funky old, high-ceilinged, Victorian-esque large studio with "sunroom" (essentially another room), fireplace (not sure if it's functional, but looks good), wood floors (albeit beaten up), etc. Even better, it's only $825/mo including utilities.

Sigh. It's amazing how stress-free life is when no longer faced with the prospect of (a) being homeless, (b) being forced to live in an ugly 12'x12' box, or (c) paying $1000 a month for aforementioned box even though it only has a microwave and micro-fridge!

I owe Shannon & David bigtime now for putting in a good word for me at the property manager's (David's former employer). Positive visualization also may not have hurt. (ummm, see the "Hippy is so 1968" previous entry...)

"Just around the corner
there's a rainbow in the sky;
So let's have another cup of coffee
and let's have another piece of pie!"
