Looking For Apartments

Posted by xccj , in News Nov 21 2012 · 276 views

Gosh, it sure is expensive to find a place to stay for three months in Dallas. So many factors to worry about. How close is it to my work? How much is rent? Is it furnished? No, okay, then where can I rent stuff like a bed? IT COST THAT MUCH! Screw it, I'll sleep on a cot. What's the Internet situation like? Is it in a good neighborhood? What stores are within walking distance? If I bring my car, where can I park it?

But most importantly.

What's its proximity to the closest Lego store? :P

(It turns out, for some of the properties, I'd be driving past a Lego store on my way to work!)

Anyway, it's crazy how pricey stuff is, but hey it's a city so it's to be expected. Still, sounds like a majority of the paycheck will go towards rent. Darn responsibilities, totally ruining adult life! :P

That's one of the advantages of Microsoft, they give us an option to have them handle housing for us. True, you can also take a lump sum and probably save money, but it's nice knowing you'll have an apartment all sorted out. :P Though regrettably all the Lego stores are rather far away.

Best of luck in your search!

Dallas- not a very walkable city. You'll be driving almost everywhere.

Kind of like Chicago. Usually took me 20 minuets to get anywhere when I was there.


And the Traffic.


Oh God the traffic.
