**DECEMBER 1 MOVE IN**

ABOUT YOUR NEXT HOME:
The house was built in 1850 and has original wooden floors on the top floor. So that's cool. (I like to play the game "My house is older." The rules are whenever you see something old you figure out if the house is older. Basically the house wins... UNLESS you go to Boston. Boston wins 90% of the time. That city is OLD.) There is a fireplace in every room, but they are all sealed up. Thankfully we aren't still in 1850 and have some killer radiators to keep us warm.

The kitchen was redone about 3 years ago so yay. AND THERE IS A DISHWASHER. YES A DISHWASHER IN THE CITY!

Also big plus? IN UNIT WASHER AND DRYER. Even bigger plus? IT'S RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR ROOM!

As for your room is about a 13x13 square. Two huge windows that face east so lots of morning light. It fits a queen bed easily. The bathroom is shared for the two of us.

If you have a car, street parking is never a problem. I think the farthest I've ever had to park is maybe 3 blocks away (and that was during a snow emergency).

We have a little "patio." It's decent for laying out if you are into that sort of thing. I personally like to stoop sit (see: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cl36-2dXF4o) with some brew-skis (or cider if I'm watching the gluten intake). There is a "garden" but it mainly is weeds. So yay for green thumbs. I am not so lucky; Once I bought basil because I thought that could be fun, but then it died 2 days later. Apparently you are supposed to water plans EVERY day. Odd.

BARS/RESTAURANTS YOU CAN WALK TO:
Obviously bar/food choices are the most important factor when choosing a living situation. Have no fear-- This place has it got it all! H Street, Barracks Row, Eastern Market, Cap South -- all less than a mile away. And for those cooking types-- Trader Joe's, Whole Foods & Giant are all about half a mile away.

Side bar: A dry cleaners is right on the corner (TBH I've never been but I see other people that do and they normally walk out with seemingly clean clothes and a smile).

WHY YOU WANT TO LIVE WITH ME:
I have a air popcorn maker and basically every kitchen utensil you need (minus a can opener). I have a Mizzou corn hole set.

I work crazy/weird hours in DC -- but who doesn't? So I may see you a lot, or a little. It really is a toss up. If that upsets you, we can plan dinners/breakfast every few days/weeks/months etc.

I watch a lot of garbage TV shows: the Bachelor/ette (except after this past season, I may take a break), Below Deck, 90 Day Fiance, Fixer Upper, Younger, Grey's Anatomy (yes, it is still on), seasons 1-6 of The Office (I just cant re-see Michael leaving). I do also LOVE game shows. Jeopardy is my jam. I also found this channel called BUZZR that shows game shows from the 70's. Best time of the year is when they have "A Betty White Christmas" and they only show episodes with the one and only BW.

I am a great Jello-shot maker. I even have special bowls for it. No, I'm not kidding.

*Will update as I think of other reasons you should come live with me*

OTHER THINGS:
Sadly no pets BUT our neighbor has a dog named Harley so its kinda close.

EXERCISE AND BLAH:
You can run (or walk) the National Mall! It's exactly 4 miles to the Washington Monument and 6 to Lincoln. There is also a few gyms nearby. I don't belong to them -- but I know their dots are close to here in Google Maps.

BORING LOGISTICAL STUFF:
Rent for the room is $1212.50. (Sorry I forgot the 50 cents in the headline). We do pay electric and gas on top of that. In the worst portion of the summer and winter it's usually around $80. Every other month it's usually less than $30. That does however include internet and one TV box. We have HBO and lot of other on demand things, WOOT.

The landlord is Arnold. To lock everything in he requests a bank statement, employment info and previous landlord contact/recommendation. He will also as first months rent & deposit ($12.12.50) upon signing. The lease will end August 1 with option to renew.

Speaking of Arnold. He is great! Any issues we've ever had, he has gotten someone out there to look at it in the day (or so when not urgent.)

WHEN CAN YOU SEE THE PLACE?
Just email -- my soon-to-be-former roommate (tears) and I will be happy to set up a time to show you the place.

Ask questions if you have them!
