Guys, I just chose where I'll be living for the next year. I had two choices. One of them involved sharing an apartment with my friend Philipp, who I met last time I was here. I just got off the phone. I was telling Philipp that I would not be living with him, but rather in the other place I was considering.
I feel bad. Now he has to hunt for another roommate, which is an awful process. And I really would have felt at home there. Hanging out with him and his other roommate reminded me of hanging out with (some subset of) Jeremy, Jeremy, Huy, and James. On the other hand, I'll presumably be visiting fairly often, so it's not as if I'm repudiating Philipp as a friend. It's just, I could have done the guy a huge favour, and instead I just didn't do him any favour at all.
On the other hand, I'm excited about my new place. I'll be moving in in mid-September. More details later. I'm sleepy.
