I love my apartment.

And I just found out I have to move!

Last August, I moved into my first big-girl apartment. I was living with my parents at the time (just for the summer), and had only ever lived with roommates. I found a great one-bedroom in East York.

My apartment is the main floor of a house. I have my own little balcony, AND on-site laundry. I was able to pick paint colours, and I found a bunch of great (and cheap) furniture and such.

Anyway, my landlord sold the house fairly recently. I didn't think it would impact me much, but apparently my new landlord wants to move into my unit. I can move into the basement if I want, and he's in the process of renovating it, but I don't know.

So I'm pretty sad about that!

In other news, I am going to have a roommate for the month of July! My friend Krystal is taking a course in Toronto, and will be staying with me. We were roommates for 3 years in university (as well as being floormates for 1 year), so I know we can live together without any problems. I'm also very excited to have a workout/healthy eating buddy!

I've still been struggling with tracking/exercising (which maybe explains the lack of posting lately)... I have a big grocery shop planned for today, though, and I'm determined to go back to my healthy ways. :)

Oh, gosh, the joys (?) of renting.

I rent, but my apartment is one of about 160 units in a high-rise, so I'm not likely to have to move anytime soon.

I would hate to be in your shoes . They probably wouldn't fit my big fat feet, anyway. :)

Best wishes to you.

Thanks, Jim!

Apparently I may not have to move - my new landlord seems kind of fickle!

I will hope the new landlord decides to let you stay in your apartment. It is a bummer to get the place how you want it and then have to move.

Thanks, chezjulie! It would be a bummer to have to move.
