Apartment Hunting

I seem to have lost a bit of my steam. Our search for apartments is seemingly endless. At first we had found one right away and were really excited about it, but another applicant had an insider connection with the janitor and got their application in first. What was more infuriating was the rental agency tried to tell us they never got our application in spite of it being emailed to them. So that was a bit of a blow and we were both really bummed about that. But onward we continue, and we've found a few that we'll hopefully get a chance to look at this week.

In the meantime, it's hard to get excited about the apartment and plan the interior when we don't even have a place yet. Even just hypothetically planning with units I liked, the layouts are so cramped and narrow, I can't imagine having a truly well designed room. It's almost as if all apartments in Montreal are the same... parquet floors, narrow salons leading to a small little balcony.

I'd really love to find something with a little more charm, like crown molding and French doors. It seems they are few and far between in Montreal, and when you can find them they're over budget.

Being on the opposite side of the continent isn't helping either. I send all the links of the apartments that I like to Y. and he calls them up and schedules a time to go see them. I feel a little helpless out here.

Will we ever find something?
