Thanks for being there when Shannon and I needed you. I am afraid to let you know, I spoke too soon when I said I hated Berkeley. The other day, I met a new side of you. You are like a big Iowa City. You even have the annoying high school kids! Your bums, however, are far more irritating.
Shannon has a friend who's girlfriend lives in Berkeley practically on the UCB campus. The house is amazing. Katie, the girlfriend and housemate, is a cool girl. The house has a room available that was offered to us. We decided last night that we will be living there.
We will have our own bedroom and full bathroom. The living room has a cute dining area, fireplace, and views of the bay to SF. I will post pictures after we move in. That means I will also post pictures from the drive here after I find my USB cord.
San Francisco has failed us, and Berkeley came to the rescue and included some awesome rent. Very doable.
There you have it. We found a place! There is no lease, so if I am not accepted into JFK, we can make possible plans to move to Miami: our destiny. I will have to hold off on owning a dog until then.
Shannon and I are in much better spirits. Thanks to our friends and family for all their support. We love you all. Now to find some jobs...
