Lucy, I’m home!

Kitchen

As some of you may remember, my last blog entry was about finding an apartment and having to move. Well, it happened. In the span of 72 hours, my roommates and I found an apartment, signed papers, and moved – mostly because ResLife at Portland state required me to move out ridiculously quickly. But the new place is wonderful!

Living off campus, in Lake Oswego, might mean a drive but I have gained two amazing roommates, a full size fridge, and an oven that is actually from this century, decent water pressure, a shower, and even a dishwasher! While campus housing has its perks, I love my new place. And I would much rather commute by Trimet or drive, than pay the extra price to live downtown or on campus for less amenities.

I guess when it comes to it; we all figure out what we can and can’t live without. I can live with a little less convenience in commute time. I can’t live without modern appliances. Can you?

  1. I am glad you found a place to hang your hat Sean. But you must comment, was the rent amount in Lake Oswego comparable in price to others? I have always thought of Lake Oswego as kind of a spendy place to live. Maybe things have changed?

    It depends on where you live in Lake Oswego, Our Apartment is a little more spendy than others, but has some wonderful features that I feel make up for it. That being said, with two roommates, in a 3 bedroom apartment, we are each paying about $650 at max for rent + utilities and cable. Compared to the near $1,000 a month I was paying in Parkway without cable.

    Hi Sean,

    I was recently accepted into PSU as a graduate student, and I will be making the move to Portland from Florida at the end of this summer. I won’t be able to bring my car with me. Could you perhaps recommend an apartment that is close to PSU and reasonably priced?
