So I’ve been alluding to some big news. I said I had an interview (on a Sunday, WTH!?). I have gchat status messages that probably raise an eyebrow. She’s going to do what? Run the Best Little Whore House in Seattle? (Thanks for that, Kevin.) What’s “official” Sizz? Quit teasing us you bitch. Ok, ok! Here’s the thing- someone better buy me this:
Because I’m moving. . . AND I have a new (second) job.
I’ve landed a very sweet gig as an Apartment Manager at the former apartment building of my sister and brother-in-law (as well as birth place of Finn) thanks to the recommendation of friends. These friends have been the Apartment Managers for 4 years and because they are moving back to California were in need of a trusty replacement. That’s where I come in. So what does it all mean? It means that I will live rent-free in a super cool second floor apartment in exchange for managing the building. But what does that mean? It means I have to keep the common areas clean and orderly, that I manage tenant issues and keep the peace, that I fix broken stuff or find someone and pay them to fix really broken stuff, that I rent out apartments and do all those manager type things.
I get to be all super organized and clean, use my interpersonal communication/diplomacy skills and get to be all manager-like and in charge.
I know! Can you believe it? It’s SO me!
I currently pay close to $900 in rent. With this move and new job, I’ll be able to save money towards buying my very own house! I asked the Universe to guide me towards a new job. . . I guess I wasn’t that specific because now I have two jobs. 😉 But that’s ok- I’m totally excited for the opportunity and think I will make a rockin’ Apartment Manager. Being able to save money and actually not live paycheck-to-paycheck in freakin’ financial fear, finally, will probably make me into an entirely different person. Watch for subtle changes. Or funny anecdotes about the building and tenants. You know it will be really good blog fodder.
It actually hasn’t really sunk in. I. Am. Moving. I am going to manage a 29 unit apartment building. Woah!
