I was homeless when I got to California, but I found an apartment my second day here. The place was great: good location, decent price (at least for around here), and a good roommate. There was just one drawback: the guy who I was replacing wasn't moving out until the end of the month, so I would be homeless for a little while longer.
I slept on a friend's couch until the end of the month rolled around. Right when I was about to move in, Apple sent me to China for a week, so I've only been in my apartment since Sunday. My moving pod showed up yesterday, so I'll finally have all of my stuff.
Unfortunately, I haven't found a bed yet, so I'm still on a couch. I've been working for the last few days to change that. Unfortunately, it appears that the bed I want doesn't exist. Here are my simple requirements:
- Raised at least a foot off the ground, so I can put stuff under it.
- Twin or full size.
- No huge headboard or other stuff that takes up lots of space.
There are a lot more full size beds on craigslist than twins, but I wasn't sure if a full would fit in my room, so I pulled out my tape measure and OmniGraffle and made a floorplan. Looks like a full will fit:
Hopefully by the end of the day I'll have a bed and have all of my stuff moved in.
