Moving Down the Road

This has nothing to do with running or cycling or strength training, nor does it have anything to do with eating right or making healthy choices. 
I think I have decided to NOT buy a house in 2½ years like I was originally planning to do.  I came to this decision about a week and a half ago while sitting on the patio of a restaurant/coffee shop near downtown Austin, eating my lunch.  I want to live as near to downtown as I can afford.  Im tired of living on the outskirts and having to drive a minimum of 20 minutes to get anywhere.  I want to run at Town Lake more often but its almost a 30 minute driveeach way!  So, I just run that on my weekly long run.

I won’t be moving for another 2½ years, but I’ve already looked on the internet for apartments that fit my criteria: at least 1050 sq ft, 2 bedroom and around $1100/mth.  A garage would be a bonus, but isnt necessary.  I actually found quite a lot of apartments that meet these criteria.  Ive put in for vacation for a week in December for my birthday.  What my current plan for that time off is, is that I want to go to as many of these properties and view apartments.  I, obviously, wont be leasing anything I look at any time near when I’m looking at them, but I figure going and looking at as many of the apartments I’ve already found as I can, then I can narrow down the list of potential apartments. 

I’m excited.  I love looking at apartments.  And if I can get the ones I really like to give me print outs of the floor plans I like, with the room measurements (or maybe I can be a nerd and take a tape measure with me?  Haha!) so I can plan where Id put my furniture and see how everything would work.
