Logic is a bitch

Morning. I got barely any sleep last night. My own fault, I’m the one who stayed up later than I knew I should have. Anyhow, the article’s done except for the last sentence. Nice, eh? I get through 3 pages of typing, and can’t word the last sentence right.

As for the apartment – it’s a battle between logic and emotion. Logic dictates (have you ever noticed that logic is a demanding master? Always telling you what to do, like it rules all..) that applying for this apartment would be a bad idea, because we’d lose money and be strapped a bit for a month. Emotion, on the other hand, is obsessing about how perfectly nice a place the apartment is, and how having a perfect place is worth being a bit short on cash for a month, and it’s worth throwing away 650$. On the other hand, logic states that 650$ would buy me a new hard drive, and a new monitor, both of which I need desperately.

All this, and I don’t even know if I would get the apartment should I apply. After all, 3 other people were looking at it at the same time as we were (one couple, one single.) So we have competition, and might not even get it. *sigh*

I give up. Looking for an apartment is too depressing.

    Is this a case of needing to move or just a desire to move? David and I wrestle with this often. However, since he doesn’t have a job and it is only me paying the bills – logic (must prevail) and dictate that we stay where we are for now. What we really want is to buy a house – but that could be years away (sigh) . . . We definitely need more room . . .

      Re: Apartments

      Both needing to move and a desire to move… we’ve been living in a small bachelor apartment for 10 months now, together, and I lived here by myself almost a year before that. This place is way too small for us, and since I got a better job we can get a bigger place… although, the same issue arises there with him not working, we can budget on my income for a place with rooms. I’m tired of living in a tiny tiny place – not designed for 2 people, 2 cats, 2 computer desks, and not much else.

      Basically, if we don’t move soon, I will go postal or something 😉 That would not be good.
