This Post is Short Because I’m Poor and it’s Sad


Hi all! So as the title says, this is a quick one. Mostly because my lease is going to be up in a few months, so I’ve been apartment hunting online a lot. Then I get really depressed at what I can afford so I drink and then I torture myself by continuing to apartment hunt even though I should stop and just watch more Showtime on Boyfriend’s account (Shameless? House of Lies? HOMELAND? It’s magical).

Anyway, you know those internet memes going around that say “A job you love. Money. A social life. Pick two.” ?

Well, this is my life:



Yep.

On a less depressing note, Boyfriend is going to contribute a little bit to an upcoming post next week! YAAAAAY! 


And on a DARD related note, MeandMyThinkingCap  interviewed Ducky last night! Check it out here.


And in case you're wondering, the boob pain issue is doing...okay (if you don't know what I'm talking about, seriously check out that link). Weirdly, it started hitting me again on Wednesday, when I was hanging out with Boyfriend. Yes, I made him grope me again. These things happen.


And if you need more Gia, follow me on twitter. Or google+, which I only very recently started paying attention to. Womp womp.

Have a great weekend everyone! I'll be drinking crying drinking AND crying googling apartments while feeling sorry for myself looking at videos of kittens yawning on youtube.

  1. I have to ask.. are you watching the british Shameless or the US Shameless because (sorry but..) you guys totes ripped off one of our best gritty British programmes (I watched the first episode of the US version and I'm pretty sure they're using the same storylines, so if you want to get ahead of where the US is at we're on like season 5 zillion here)

    Also, sorry you're having trouble with the apartment hunt, I had that for a looong time and it's so stressful :( though I'd go with living near bf and not being shanked. Just sayin'

    Also, yeah, dream job and social life would totally come before money (even though I LOVE money)

    yeah.. I'm going to stop dumping all of my thoughts on you now (it's been a lonely day)

    Ciao!

    1. Btw, that wasn't a bitchy comment aimed at you about Shameless.. it definitely sounded like I was being a bitch didn't it?

    2. Hahaha it's okay, I'm sure I'd feel the same. It's the US Shameless. I know it's a rip off but I love it.

  2. Why don't you and Boyfriend live together? Share the rent. Just a thought.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Hah thanks but that's not possible for a host of reasons including the fact that he has kids and my fam would freaaak out and he'd probably murder me in the first week... Plus, I want to live alone. Just somewhere not too scary and close and affordable.

  3. I seen the interview with ducky...fantastical!

    That suck about the boob pain and let's hope boyfriend is right...it's not cancer. But it definitely isn't a heart attack!

    Good luck on the apartment search!

  4. Much luck with the apartment hunting. And I look forward to the Boyfriend contribution. He was great last time.

  5. So we will see you on twitter this weekend? This sucks, I totally do the same with apartment hunting, why is there nothing nice in the affordable category that doesn't require you to learn navy seal surviving skills?

  6. We have the exact same problem when it comes to wanting to buy a house. We can afford only what is in a neighborhood that would have someone busting a cap in our ass in the first week OR we could buy a shack in a good neighborhood and spend massive amounts of money, time, and energy to fix it up ourselves.

  7. You should live in a pineapple under the sea. It worked out okay for this yellowish, porous fellow I used to know.

    1. This made me snicker and blow a snot bubble. But just out of one nostril.

  8. I'd probably go with an apartment you can afford and not get shanked..... just make Boyfriend come to you and grope you more! He won't mind!

  9. We just went through the BS of moving and I felt the same way when looking at houses for us. We did finally find an affordable one that we like and we're settled in now but the move cost us waaaaay more money than we first anticipated. Now we have credit card debt that we didn't have before and we get to start paying it off...YAY!!! (That's sarcasm ;) I'm still not thrilled about the school district here for my son. At least you don't have to worry about that. (Trying to help you find a bright spot.) Anywho, I hope you find something that works for you. It is a great BIG pain in the ass! Wish I had something more positive to say. I know, I know, I'm a bright little ray of sunshine! Maybe it would be better if I just kept my mouth shut, lol.

    Best of luck. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. That makes it hard for me to get things done but, for you I'll do it! :D

  10. Aww sorry about all this! Surely a good apartment will turn up at some point... and really hope that boob pain goes away. Although, maybe you're milking the event so that boyfriend gropes you more lol... I would like to think so anyway.

    But seriously, hope everything sorts out - and can't wait to see what boyfriend is contributing next.

  11. I've been in the same tiny 1 bedroom apartment for 3 years now because the only 2 bedrooms I can afford are in the fucking hood. It's RIDICULOUS. My husband and I started looking into it and it would be cheaper for us to buy a house (and luckily, he is responsible as fuck and got my credit in some sort of order, so we can actually do that). It pissed me off a lot when I realized people are literally charging an entire mortgage payment per month to their tenants. It's bullshit.

  12. Pick two? One you can afford and one where you live close to BF/work. Getting shanked isn't soemthign to worry about if you're smart about it. You know, dark alleys, walking alone late at night, leaving your door unlocked. Besides, if you live close to Boyfriend he can always rescue you!

  13. Good luck apartment hunting! I love looking for new apartments (I'm a serial mover), but I know how stressful it can be.

    ReplyDelete
  14. If you do find an apartment where getting shanked is a possibility, shank them first.. shank. them. first. But in all seriousness, it will all work out! You'll find a reasonable place, everyone always does.

  15. I once found an apartment that was 6 blocks from my office, 6 minutes from my husband's (then boyfriend's) condo and on the 6th floor. It totally freaked me out. It was an awesome place but I couldn't live in something that added up to 666 and become part of the next scary movie on the big screen.
    Seriously though...Good Luck and never pick a place where you will get shanked...EVER!

  16. Searching for a new place is always stressful, since the good places are getting fewer and far between.

    Good luck!

  17. Good luck on the apartment hunting. I just started watching the original Shameless. I love it, but I love William H Macy so I do like ours more.

    How good is Homeland? For seriously.

  18. I feel the need to look up yawning kittens on Youtube.

    Good luck apartment hunting Gia, something will turn up!

  19. Something will turn up sometime. Never give up.

  20. Good luck with the apartment hunt! I dread the day i have to move - i've lived in the same place for eight and a half years right now and the idea of moving again terrifies me!

  21. Get out of my head!

    Seriously like... wine in hand (3/4 of the way through a nice French red YUM! - it was on offer, of course) and looking at properties to rent because we're looking to move closer to my wife's work.

    It really is depressing stuff, we've looked at your diagram and worked out we're currently living in 'can afford' and 'won't get shanked' and I think we're moving to 'can afford' and 'near work'... so thanks for helping us with a LOL in these twilight years of our 20's(possibly life depending on which way we look at the guy at the bus stop).

  22. I wish I could help but I'm poor, too. Good luck with the apartment hunt.

  23. Cute funny blog. Saw your recommendation on CRACK YOU WHIP. I'll have to try that boob groping thing on my wife. "Honey does this feel funny to you?" Maybe I'll use a clown nose.
    Sorry your depressed.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sucks. :( Having no money is one of the least fun things possible. I hope you find a place.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Some advice. Get a super old boyfriend who will pay for everything. They are called sugar daddies, but I am a bit of a health nut, so get a stevia daddy instead.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am OBSESSED with Shameless and Homeland. OH EM GEE!! Seriously!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sorry to hear you're depressed about the apartment hunting and all. Anyway, thought I'd inform you that there's an award awaiting you at me blog.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sorry to hear you're depressed. Drinking helps. Trust me. :0)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sorry to hear about the depressed thing and especially the boob pain thing.... unhealthy food in large amounts helps around here... yesterday was a chocolate cowboy boot which when opened had chocolate bark with nuts inside! Mmm.. gained four pounds.

    Choose the appt near work and boyfriend...

    ReplyDelete
  30. :( Why do so many things in life have to be one or the other? Hope you find an apartment that is affordable, close to boyfriend, and close to work! Oh, and most importantly, an apartment where you won't get shanked, too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I feel your pain. Why is living so expensive! Good luck on the apartment hunt. I suggest making a drinking game out of it.

  32. I HAD BOOB PAIN THE OTHER DAY TOO!! And I thought about you, and then - because it was dead late at night, and really dark and things were a bit weird, I convinced myself there was a zombie virus going round the world and it started with boob pain... then I felt like a bit of a crazy person when I woke up the next day.

    Anyway, sucks about the apartment - I was in the same situation a few months back, I hope you find something lovely xx

  33. Good luck with apartment hunting! Money sucks, every day I put my faith in free scratch cards, some day it MUST happen!
