So, after much research done on the internet I made the trip up to Arlington, VA today to look at apartments (with my Dad in tow). After a tough decision between a studio and a 1 bedroom (yes, I'm telling the truth; they both had great qualities), I chose a 1 bedroom. I can't remember what floor it was on again...but for some reason I'm thinking the 10th. Anyways, the rent isn't cheap...but hey it is the DC area...and it is in a nice area. But I will be working in the next building over...so guess what? No commute and no filling up the gas tank at least once a week. Anyways, I move there next Saturday...and start my new job 2 days later.
Here's the link to the apartments if you'd like to check it out.
