House vs. Apartment

I thought renting a house would seriously kick ass compared to renting an apartment. And it does, for the most part, but it's not ALL THAT. Why? you ask. I mean, come on, I no longer have to search for parking along a dark and iffy street because I have my own driveway. I don't have to climb 3 flights of stairs carrying all my groceries anymore because I live on the main floor. And I don't live above a crazy lady who claps her hands incessantly and growls at her demons anymore. True. But, I DO happen to live next door to some musician dudes who just set up a music studio in their attic, which is only like four measly feet away from my house. I had to listen to the thuds and bangs of a frickin' drum set ALL.DAY.LONG much to my chagrin! UG! I guess I need to move to an island all by myself. I'm such a misanthrope.

In other news, my mom bought us a clothes dryer today! Thank God! I can wash me some underwear tomorrow - I'm almost out of clean ones! Also, I have 2 more job interviews tomorrow - one is a follow-up of one I had last week and the other is at Vanderbilt! Finally! I've been applying to jobs there left and right - I guess they really wanted to see that I lived in Nashville before they showed any interest in me! Wish me luck (again)!
