Moving to NOLA

I have only one job now, and it's excellent. I am moving to New Orleans in May (well between May 18th and June 1st), but only if I can get an apartment before I get there. My dad and I want for me to save up at least enough money to pay the first and second months rent, and have enough to pay bills and survive. I looked up prices for a U-HAUL truck and a trailer to transport my car, and it would cost $2,780 for their smallest truck and a car hitch! That is absolutely ridiculous! I guess I will have to pack as much shit in my little car as possible (which luckily I happen to be great at), and ship the rest of my shit down there or find someone that wants to help me move. My sister offered already, which is so gnar! My dad also thinks that I should live there for a year to establish residency before I go back to college, after this semester is over. I don't have any problem with that. It will give me time to work for a year, and save up a shit ton of dollars. I'm super stoked about this whole moving to the place that I've wanted to live since I lived there 4 years ago.

Anyways, I have quit buying pot and joes so I can save up enough money to be able to move, and I put every paycheck I get into my bank account. I save all my change, and whenever I see change anywhere, I pick it up to put in my wine jug. It was full two days ago so I emptied it, rolled the coins, and deposited it all in my account too. Now, I am doing odd jobs like cleaning houses and babysitting just to have enough money to buy gas (and food occasionally). This is one of the only things that I have been sure that I want to do, and I am working as hard as I can just so I can accomplish this one large advancement in my life.

The point I'm getting too is this, it seems as though every time that I put money in my account something happens so I have to take it right back out. For instance, today I was in a great mood. Positive Vibes coming out in every direction all day. As soon as I get off work and get home, I find out my phone bill is $300! So now, I have to pay way more than I even should be paying to fix this problem. Luckily, my dad told me if I gave him $200 instead, he will call it even. That is extremely awesome of him.

Another situation I keep thinking about is the moving. I need to get an apartment before I get there so I will not be homeless. The problem is I don't know whether I am moving in with Conrad or not. We've talked about it, but it seems like the idea isn't being taken seriously. That kind of sucks. So, I have no idea whether I should get a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. I absolutely wouldn't mind sharing a place, but I need to know whether or not he is serious about it. Well, I guess for now I should assume that it is just Gnarly Marley and I. Well, at least, until we figure out if Conrad and Chubby Kittens are moving in too. I am pretty sure it would be much easier living with someone else though, and it would be much less stressful and lonely than living on my own.
