The rent here in SLO is amazingly high. It really got bad this year with housing because CalPoly accepted 1800 more Freshmen then the last years. The prices for housing to expect are between $600 to $700 plus around $50 to $100 utilities. So the people who have something to rent can be really picky.
We can staye at the hostellady's place until sunday (today 9/9/07) then we have to move to
hostel because the person she's renting the room to is moving in.
But then luckily Thomas is the one you finds a room - the nice room we looked at. Mark the owner of the house choose him to have the room. Only the furniture is missing but .... thanks to Elaine the hostellady he gets a bed and two matresses (one for me if I need it) and a chair. So he's ready to move in tomorrow and I'm allowed to stay there as well for the next 3 to 4 days. That's really nice so I don't have to stay at the hostel.
Unfortunately I didn't get the Valencia room from the girl moving out and I'm getting really hopeless to finding a place and really frustrated because all my options are falling apart. My problem was also that I'm only staying until March and not the whole school year till mid of June. I really hope to find at least something to stay - writing again a lot of mails but no answers ....
