Power Company Set to Turn on Services and others.

Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative, Inc is the name of the new power company. I actually had to pay a deposit fee and connection charge came to a huge $347.75. It is what it is, I need power. They also have a prepaid program that would have been cheaper, but I won’t explore that until after I am moved in.

Next up on my hit list of things to do will be to call Spectrum and have internet ready for me to get start right to work, as I will have little or no downtime. I am going to miss having fiber internet.

Now I am hunting around for the least expensive movers. This moving shit is for the birds. I am hoping all goes well because no one has offered (who can) help me to move. But I digress. It will be painful to move. I am so use to everything here where I am at in South Tampa, but nothing I can find here is affordable anymore. I am going into debt just to move. Rent control now.

I am continuing to pack. I have a bit of things to still go through. I should be packed by the end of next week. Besides, I am taking my time.

Well that is all I really have for now. Thought I would provide an update. I’ll have more to chat about soon.

Thanks for reading,

Jack

Received Welcome Letter to New Apartment “Updated”

I got my welcome letter to the new apartment complex. It’s official as it is going to get. I will be moving the week of 10/03/2022. I will call on Tuesday (Monday is a holiday for me) to set up new power company and using Spectrum internet because Fiber or VZ 5G Home Internet are not available at the new address. Sucks, I will miss both of those internets! Oh and I need to hire movers also. Because not a soul or friend has offered to help me move but I also didn’t expect much because I haven’t asked anyone, soooo. Still its the intent that matters.

I did also manage to sell a few things that helped or is helping to bring down the cost of moving. Sold a couple TV’s for well below what they are worth used. Sold a gaming machine, cell phone and a laptop, with the later two being sold at a very good price. I took a loss. Kind of feel some ways about it, but oh well, I digress. It is, what it is, lesson learned. Well, maybe a couple lessons learned. Sold for far less than I should have, I could have made more. Or maybe not, I know what happened and it’s my fault for giving in to easy. There is more to this than I want to say, mostly because they are internal feelings, thought and emotions. I am still trying to raise all the money I need to fund this unanticipated and costly move. I have no wiggle room, nothing. I was caught 150% off guard. I have to fund movers and getting power with a new electric company.

The move still has me very nervous. Not gonna lie, gonna be odd living outside of Tampa. Had a feeling… Lost that feeling. I am jumbled mess of feelings and emotions. I ended up getting a crush on the wrong person. Some faint hope of trying to make friends with people I have nothing in common with. Moving to Lutz is going to limit who I can hang with. I know nothing about Lutz. Hopefully, I will only have to live there a year or two and then I can move back to Tampa. I’m too fucking old, poor and ugly for new challenges. Not that I hang with anyone. You know, just myself. My time to meet someone is quickly running out. Age and time are making their presence known and are NOT on my side. You see how quickly anything that is the slight bit positive can turn the wrong way.

OK, that’s it. That is all I have for now. It’s only 2pm but it feels like it should be 5PM or 7PM. OK, that is all. Bye Bye! Bless your heart if you made it this far and you can leave comments on this post.

KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED. Apt Hunting HELL might be about to END!!!!!!! OMG, PLEASE!

Apartment hunting is still going like shit. It’s just more apply and application fee and or admin fees. Most are bogus attempt to get more money out of a person. I am now close to $500 in fees. I can’t keep this up. I have been waitlisted for one or three complexes. I am still crossing my fingers that I will land myself at nice apartment at a fair rate. HAHAHA! Fair rate? Greed kills. I just did an app for an apartment in St. Pete. I really don’t want to live over that way. But, if I have to, then I have to. Just keep wishing me luck. The struggle is real.

New Floor Plan

(Updated) Well, I guess I will have a small update later. I have to call this one complex that emailed me back and sent me a notice that I was approved for an apartment. It will require me to move all the way out to Lutz. Which is about an hour drive from where I am. So, if it comes to pass and that this is real then I should be able to move out by October1st or so. Ending (with permission) my lease just at one month early. Which then mean my timeline for moving has been compressed and I will need to get a move on with packing. Too bad I don’t have a lot of friends in Tampa who would come and help me.

Outside of new apartment

I am really excited if I get this apartment. They also have a lot of fees. Fees are what I would be drowning in for some time and hope that work offers some extra hours for me to be able to afford to move without HUGE amounts of debt. So far, this place has cost me just about $70.00 for application fees and rounded. I believe there is a $250.00 admin fee that is next and then the deposit of $1125.00, I’ll have that on Thursday, that I have to send to them overnight or drive it up. Will probably be better to mail it. I will chat with them today about it. If all goes according to my plan, then my next step is to hire movers for all the big things and boxes. So, I am looking forward to this. I am NOT looking forward to moving or real apartment life after all these years in a private apartment. I am going to also place my MacBook Pro up for sale. I wanted $1125.00 from it but not sure I can get that much. I night have to for about $800 which I think is a totally fair price. I don’t want to sell it, but I will if I need to. I have sold other TV’s Xbox and an iPhone 12 Pro Max all with the intent of keeping costs low, but quickly find out all that goes to a credit card to pay off other bills. I think I am on firm footing. Hoping for the best.

Still looking. I Still Have Some Time, but not much.

So, just sitting here working and typing this blog in-between things I have to do at work. As you can guess this post is going to be about my hunt for an apartment. I am looking in Clearwater, Lakeland, St. Pete and Tampa areas for an apartment. I have found a couple places that will work well for me, only if I can get an apartment complex accept me. This shit is so damn annoying and expensive. As I have said before, App Fees, Admin Fees, Just Because Fees are so ridiculous. It’s just a way to get more money out of people who are struggling, like me!

Not A Real Doctor. LOL

Then yesterday I had to take 5 1/2 hours off because of a lot of stress dealing with this. Then today, I have a doctor’s appointment for absolutely nothing other than a checkup and to be seen in person. That way when I need something I can go back to virtual appointments. Such a hassle. Also, anytime I take off is UNPAID, I either have to do “Overtime” to make up for the missing hours, but the hours offered are crap. If I can just get an apartment and make it to next year, things will get better, I am sure.

I did pack some yesterday and got about 10 boxes packed, sold two TV’s and one Xbox. I have a few other things I think I need to sell so I can have more money to move into a new apartment and use less credit cards for this whole damn process. Next, I need to prepare my iPhone 12 Pro Max for sell and probably a MacBook Pro (Intel, 2019). It will help with some of the expenses. I’ll post at least the phone on Facebook and eBay later today. It did not cost me this much last time to move but it’s been 14 years. After 14 years being kicked out so her family can move in.

Well, that is all I have for now! Thanks for reading.

Another Day, Another Day of Worry

Here we go again. Another day of worry about getting an apartment by the end of October. I have placed so many calls and sent so many emails, but NO ONE is calling me back. The one apartment I was hoping for has declined me. I’ll call them back today and see if anything can be done to approve me for an apartment as I am in a desperate need of one. My credit is shit but I pay my rent, power and cable all on time. Never had an issue there. MAYBE if I had a co-signer, it would change things. But I do not have anyone that could be a co-signer, no living family members. Would never ask friends to that for me. I worry every day I am going to be homeless, and I have said also that will not happen. I’d rather be dead than homeless. I am still pissed off at my landlord for not giving me enough notice. You’d think that 90 days would be enough time, but I don’t feel like it is. As of now, today, I have 76 days until I have to move. Each day it is counting down. I guess one minor side effect of having to move and finding place is that I am up early every day to spend time with myself before I have to sign into work. I don’t look forward to that. But that is a different post. Also, it appears my weight is going down because of the stress. I find myself eating less, which is a good thing. That also helps with the Type 2 Diabetes. At least that is under control for the most part. I think I take too many medications. But, if they work, they work. So all-in-all it is a good thing. Not that it matters, isn’t no one going to date me anyway. But that also is another post.

I guess it is time to wrap this post up. But before I do, I was able to sell off one TV, Xbox and sound bar in an effort to downsize so I can fit myself and my junk into a new apartment. I am sorry worried about this. Sighhhhhhhhhh. Also, my fundraising appeal. If you want to help me offset my cost of new apartment shopping, let me know and I will tell how you can help me. My final purchase of boxes should be here today. Now, it’s more to apply and pay fees to apply that are nonrefundable even if they decline you, which I think is total BULLSHIT. If they decline you, then they should refund you.

EDIT 1: I have been calling places all day. I can’t get ahold of anyone. I don’t know what to do. My whole life is falling apart.

That’s all for now! Take Care
