The apartment searched has been called off. We finally found a pretty-good place and it made me realize... what am I doing. Why do I want to move to a new place that's the same size if not smaller, further from my GF, and further from work? No thanks.

I think it comes in waves. A lot of the brownstones in now-fancy Brooklyn neighborhoods (Park Slope, even Brooklyn Heights!) were built as single family homes, then were divided up into rooming houses, and then were bought by yuppies to turn back into single family homes. Maybe in 20 years all of those new fake walls will be knocked down and Crown Heights will become all big bedrooms and even more unaffordable.

We are looking at apartments in a different neighborhood and they are a lot better. Apparently people in my current hood are buying buildings and cutting all the bedrooms in half, or something. Also, replacing the appliances with really ugly "hip" ones, installing ugly "hip" light fixtures, etc. Very bad.

(For the Wombats in the room, venturing into the area east of Prospect Park along the Q train)

In my personal use Iíve found the only thing worse than an Apple product is anything with windows on it. Although Iíve heard lately Apple is frustrating after a brief golden age.

Oh the other crushing thing yesterday was that one of the apartments we looked at was in a cute historic brownstone like Iíve wanted to live in for years. It was dirty, tiny, overpriced, with a horrible layout. I feel a little... crushed.

He is now married with a cute baby!

Today we looked at apartments and every one of them was awful. Everything in our price range is 1/2 mile further from the subway and has even tinier bedrooms. Bad. Bad bad bad.

I considered whether I could pay another $200 a month in rent. And then I realized that's like throwing 2 macbooks in the trash every year. In addition to the ~11 I already throw in the trash every year / buy for my landlord every year.

Yes, he lives near me! I ran into him canvassing for a city council candidate. But only realized recently that he is Bozack, at the time I thought he was just a nice guy from twitter.

Oh god don't bring this up, today I told a socialist about the Bozack connection and he made the worst most ham-handed achewood references to prove he knew what achewood is.

Even after the revolution we will still have the guys who corner you in bars and talk at you for 25 minutes while you stare stoically into the distance.

Did not get elected to go as a representative to the NYC convention of my socialist group. Which means I finished in the bottom 10 out of 60 candidates (we are the biggest branch so we get to send 50 people).

Does not feel great. But whateva my GF is moving into an apartment 2 blocks away this weekend.

edit: aw. My lovely friend is organizing the whole convention and after telling me it's an outrage I wasn't elected, asked if I would help set up and sell t-shirts and stuff. I am very aware I am being used for willing volunteer labor, but she is also someone who puts in tons of behind the scenes work, and I know that her asking me this means she thinks she can count on me. Good.

Wild one: met a guy from one of our Borough offices and he knows my girlfriend AND a former poster of ours from when they all lived in a small town in Alaska.

if someone is a journalist and you two are in contact about your job for an interview

it is not a date
they do not want you to ask them out
they do not want to flirt
they do not want you to text them at 1am asking "r u up, what r u up to haha"

they are just trying to do their job.

Come on dude.

our socialist org has a local convention next month and I am running to be a delegate. Our branch is the biggest in the city (over 1000 members last I checked) so we get like 60 reps. There was a thread of "who to vote for that you might not personally know" and this woman said maybe the 2nd best compliment I've ever gotten. She said "vote for [theinevitable], he does a ton of work and nobody knows because he isn't bossy and doesn't have an ego about it." As a major over-talker this is a characteristic I have really tried to cultivate.

On the other hand, literally everyone except me voted for a new "branch priority" that the urban planner in me cannot get entirely behind. And so lately I am flaking because my heart is not in it. (Also, spending time with the GF or hibernating instead of going to really long meetings). This is the downside of trying to be a follower.

In case you were wondering the demographic of where I live, Cynthia Nixon is running for governor and she's having a 4/20 fundraiser around the corner from my house.

No comics whatsoever these days. Sad. I did pre-order Dead Dead Demon's Dedededestruction because I read illegal fan translations last year. It was "delivered and signed for" but is not here. Maybe it's at the laundromat downstairs?

Getting packages here is a herculean task. It is helping that I cancelled Amazon Prime tho, way less unnecessary crap is coming to me through the mail lately.

I think, also, I have not adjusted to being -almost- 30. Plenty of "people my age" are further into their careers than me. Also most of them work in the private sector for big companies. I'm sure a healthy chunk of them are corporate lawyers, finance people, tech people, etc.

Doesn't explain the people in my office who live in Brooklyn Heights tho.

If my roommate and I find a new 2-bedroom place in the same area for only slightly more money I will be happy.
