This post (14/31) is part of the Blaugust Reborn event! You can find out more about the event at Belghast’s blog. I (Chestnut) created a Twitter list of all participants. Armagon created an OPML file of all the bloggers to import into your feed reader.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied as of late, which has put me behind with Blaugust (if you hadn’t noticed). And I just needed to do a bit of, well, bitching. So please feel free to skip this post!
It all started on July 20th, when this happened…

Which then resulted in this starting on August 2nd, which still hadn’t fully been taken care of as of August 21. Which, y’know. Is totally healthy.
It keeps getting worse. Emailed the place I'm moving to see if I can move into a different unit sooner.
Otherwise I might have to do a stint at an extended stay place, and I don't know if I can afford that. pic.twitter.com/DxneacoEgL

So I’ve spent close to a month fighting with the complex to try to get someone to come and take care of the mold. I did get fed up with everything, and put in my 60 day notice to cancel (just before the mold appeared) as per my contract, but then when the mold appeared, and it hadn’t been taken care of, I went down to change the terms of cancelling my lease. Luckily, things went in my favor with the manager, and I’ll be moving into a new place on September 14th.
I finalized everything with the manager today, and paid my prorated rent for September. We also signed a page I came up with so that laid out everything we agreed upon (so if things go south, I have that in my corner, too)—prorated September rent, no termination charges (typically charged per leasing contract and early cancellation), and no charges for any damages, repairs, or cleanup to prepare the unit for the next tenant (good luck, next tenant!).
15 and 35.
Current apartment is all settled except for turning in my keys.
All that's left is packing, finding movers, and finding a place to take unwanted furniture before I move (couch, computer desk, some chairs, and a coffee table). https://t.co/PwFbGZPUo8
