how about a cable/internet deal that is $102 a month...through comcast?

i guess we still need to pay the verizon bill but i think we should just pay it and then not play around with them anymore.

a few apartment updates
hey everyone!!

i've been out in amherst a bit over the past two weeks and have a few updates on the apartment.

1) They "put in a new shower stall" which means that they painted the shower floor. It looks really good right now- we'll see how long it lasts.

2) They came and fixed the water heater, and things seem to be better.

3) I got a electric bill for $40...so $10 each.

4)Umm...It's lonely here by myself...I'm excited for when everyone's back in the spring.

5) when we get back we need to talk about plans for the summer....and figure out how we want to rearrange the place.

6) OHHHH...VERY IMPORTANT. Ben and Jerry's is clsoed. The wireless network is very irregular. i think we need to finally get and pay for our own. ;-). Maybe we can do an internet/cable deal...I'll try to do some research....

sorry to all for the chaos of my attempt to move. but because of the market, it is impossible for me to do so. Therefore, my checks will be in the kitchen tomorrow


I do believe that we need to create some sort of written statement that we are to respect each other emotionally and physically, that things need to be done to preserve peace and not throw the house into chaos. it's ultimately about respect and to not let us use each other, which is easy to do to friends.

that said. i'm exhausted. lo siento por todo.

some housekeeping
i'd like to pretend like the world has frozen and is waiting for us to figure out the situation but infortunately, that is not the case..thus there are some important things that need to be done aroud here.

1) I paid the whole summer electricity bill. I did not live here in the summer. I need $21 from Kathleen, Court and Rose. Emily, I have yours.

2) Gas bill is here. I personally, would like to have hot water.

3) Phone bill is here. After doing all the hard work to get the phone- let's not jeapordize it.

4) Dishes and trash are everywhere. I'm not playing "mom" anymore and cleaning up after everyone.

Come on guys, we're twenty years old. Let's start acting like it.

i'm soryr for the pissy nature of this entry. but let's be frank, whose not pissed off right now?

Emma and I are thinking that the room arrangement should change because of the fact that emma and i are in steady relationships and don't really think its fair to the rest of you.

it'd be much easier for us to sleep in the same room as someone who has a someone in their bed as well




sorry about this
