More on the house hunting front

So today I called three more places and went to one that I called yesterday. Of the three I called today, one of them answered, one of the girls is 32 and the other is 26... no thanks. One of the people who I left a message for, they called back, and apparently all three of them are 26. Again, thanks, but no thanks. I haven't heard back from the other one, but it's in a gated community and it's a bit higher of a price than I'd like, so I probably won't pick that one.
The place I went to today, it was very weird. It's this old lady and her daughter, and they just have a spare room that they rent. I am looking for more of the actual college experiece, you know, living with people my age, that kind of thing. I don't want to be worried about waking up some sixty year old from talking on the phone late at night, you know? Plus it was just weird! And also kind of run down looking. Like, the roof was a nightmare. But, I'm the daughter of a construction worker, what can I say? I notice those things :) (P.S. Thanks for that, daddy!)
So, right now I'm leaning toward house number two. It would be five girls including me, the one with the fruit trees and the ducks. It's cheap, it's the kind of atmosphere I want, the girls are really nice. They have a keyboard, one of the girls is really into music. They have a nice tv, no cable, but I read more than I watch tv anyway, so no harm there. Except missing house, NCIS and Bones. But I can just ask someone to tape those for me. Because everyone loves me enough to do it, right? :) So, tomorrow I'll just double check that this is the right decision, and then go from there! I kind of want to decide quickly, because I really like this place, and I don't want someone else to call and take it. So I feel like I need to decide fast. I know, I'm weird. But, that's life.
That's pretty much all I did today. I'm currently reading Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card (it's in the Ender's Game series - SO good!). I'm not very far, but it's just as good as the others. I'm so addicted to Card right now, it's not even funny.
Yep, that's life. Thanks for reading. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
