It is Fall and of course still California Summer here so it will be 85 degrees here in Berkeley. I really hate the hot weather in October. Give me cold crisp Autumn days and leaves under my feet. It is this time of year that I really miss New England. Oh boo hoo hoo.

I am good in general. Work is low stress. I saw a job on the web that I am both interested in and qualified for so I think I might apply for that. I have strange overtures from my landlord here - he has asked me if I want to do a buy out of my rent control tenancy and I am seeing what to do about that and researching that. His number is way lower than my number, of course so I doubt that this will work out. But it is a little stressful and ominous on that front. I spend a lot of time looking at Bay Area housing which I cannot afford and trying to figure out if I can get him to a number that would be worth it. I am only posting about this here on LJ so any Facebook peeps should not mention this there. This is totally hush hush. The rental board says I don't have to do anything and I can refuse his offer.

So I am spending a lot of time right now thinking about scenarios that might never happen and looking at the unbelievably expensive housing in the Bay Area. If I could get enough money to pay for a house of my own - that would make it worth it.

Anyways. That is my biggest worry right now. So that is something. Could be a big deal or it could be a big nothing. I have lived in my apartment for 24 years - almost half my life. I love my apartment. So there is that too. Also - my rent is well below market rate. That is worth preserving.

Anyhoo. Just thinking onto the journal. This is not keeping me up at night or anything but if I could improve my situation - that would be good.

Hope all is well with you there.

I have started making graphics again at the following LJ comms -

Just for fun. Hope to see you there!
