My Apartment!

I'm ridiculously excited right now! My apartment has been secured! So after a lot of confusion, anger, cultural barriers, and linguistic misunderstandings, my housing has been finalized! One huge chunk of stress I don't have to worry about! I will be living here (google map image is the only one I have b/c the listing was taken off the website):

My place will be about a 10min walk to Kibogaoka station and a 14-18 minute train ride to Yokohama station. It's located in the Asahi ward and is a whopping 13.5 square meters! It has a loft bed, bathroom, air conditioner, fridge, 1 stove burner, and coin washer (that I have to share w/ the other tenants). The best part about the place is that it has fiber optic internet. :P

Aside from the apartment, I've spent time comparing furniture expenses should I have to buy things new from several websites. I'm hoping to be able to get some things at sayonara sales, but it's always good to have a back-up. Things are moving along pretty fast at this point. It's hard to believe I'm leaving in 10 days. It's hard to believe I'm turning 23 in 5 days. Crazy life.
