So, the boys we were talking to about living with seem to be a not-option. When Jessi finally prompted them about how likely it was that we were going to be roomies, they answered back with, "Well, our roomie thinks he might not move out now..."

Which, I know they need some options open but not telling us that until now? Puts us in a really bad position. We want to be up there by June and this pattern of waiting five days between emails and then not saying anything is a short trip to homelessness for us.

We talked to Emily, who's going to be hearing back from a job interview tomorrow, and if she gets it, we might split a two bedroom with her -- then if we need to leave because we're not finding jobs we'll be responsible for finding a sublet or something. We're still looking for sublets in case she doesn't, or if her parents don't want her to, or whatever, but hopefully that'll work out. I think it'll be better for all of us if we're sharing one, less expensive and we won't be sharing with a total stranger, etc etc.

Hopefully at least ONE of those options will work out. If not...I don't know.

In other news, I've got a neurologist appointment on Thursday, so that should be...uh, fun? At least I can get refills on my medication before trying to find a place to go in Chicago.

I also have two DW codes, so if anyone wants one for any reason, let me know.

sooooo I brought it up as a possibility with my parents
they seem okay with the idea
though a) I dodged around the subject of The Gays and b) they seem pretty insistent that you two are the ones with your names on the lease

but other than that, this is a definite possibility!!

Damn, the main problem is that we probably couldn't get a lease alone, since we're out of town and don't have full time jobs until I get to my interviews.

Yeah...I would lovelovelove to do this, but we're going to need to ALL be on there. Or for your parents to be on it, or something. (Potentially my parents would have to be guarantors on our end of the lease, if we did this.)

That's not just the way in which it would be feasible for us to live there at all -- although that is one big part of it -- but as much as I love and trust you and don't think we'd have issues with each other, it still keeps us all safe to all be on the lease, you as much if not more than us. Plus, it limits our options: there are places where you simply can't have someone living there who isn't on the lease.

If they're really against it, I understand, though. We'll look for some other way to get up there.

Most places require everyone who's actually *living* there to have their name on the lease... Also, there are benefits to having your name on record for a lease.

Yeah, this was my biggest concern.

Here's what our lease says:

"The apartment shall be occupied solely for residential purposes by Tenant, those other persons specifically listed in the application for this lease, and any children which may be born to or legally adopted by Tenant during the term. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, guests of Tenant may occupy the apartment in reasonable numbers (no more than 3 people) for no more than 3 weeks during each year of the term hereof..."

I'm really sorry that things didn't work out with the boys. I really hope you'll be able to get everything worked out soon ♥
