My prospective subletters are a writer and her app developer boyfriend. She’s from Richmond; they travel and sublet furnished, Internet-ready homes a few months at a time in various cities year-round.
We’re meeting tomorrow — although my landlords may say no, we’ve decided we’d probably get along really well and should meet up.
I’ve got a lot on my mind lately, most stemming from being antsy… and will have much more on my mind if it turns out my landlords don’t let me sublet. That’s a pretty big game changer when my job relies not on location but on having an Internet connection. I want to travel without paying rent to an empty apartment.
My lease is up / renews in July, and the way I see it, I’d rather put my stuff in storage and spend, say, a week each with 52 friends/family members (who have Internet) in various cities and buy a house in Austin when I’m done and have the best year of my life than drag these people all to one place for a wedding and pretend it was the best day of my life.
I’m having ideas, I tell you.
I don’t know what’s going to happen between now and July, but I’m having ideas.
