Saw two apartments today. One was meh - fine, not quite the right space for me. The other though has me conflicted. So I'm gonna write out my thoughts and maybe add a bit tomorrow.

+ LOCATION. It's a freaking beautiful neighborhood
++ It's also a five minute walk from High Park
++ It's a 3 minute walk from Roncesvalles, which means
+++ Restaurants a plenty
+++ Fruit/veggie marts and a little Sobeys
+++ TTC by way of King street cars (up to Dundas West or down to the downtown)
+++ Also close to the lakeshore
++ My commute to work shouldn't be more than 5-10 minutes longer than it currently is
- Will have extra travel time required in the winter
+ Price - it's on the low end of my budget (NEED TO CHECK ABOUT THE UTILITIES, I totally forgot)
+ Pet friendly
+ Laundry on site
- Laundry is paid - 2.50$ per load
-- Laundry room has a separate entrance that requires leaving the house and walking around to the back
++ OH RIGHT THE BACK YARD IS HUGE
+++ Half of the space (kitchen/living area) is ABOVE GROUND with NICE BIG WINDOWS
- No AC
- The bedroom is down a set of stairs on a lower level directly below the main one
+ Smallish but decent sized bedroom
-- The main living space (kitchen/living room) is on the small side
-- And due to the aformentioned stairs, it's a little awkward
---- Which means that my new, giant couch is probably not going to work there >:(
+ A fair bit of storage space
- Bathroom is pretty small
+ (but surprisingly functional, and on the main level)
- hardwood floors upstairs
- fridge is a mini-fridge with a tiny freezer
+ small deep freeze is available in the laundry room
- not much counter space
+ reasonable bit of cupboard space
- the stairs outside are a bit janky
+ landlord lives on site, other tenants are quiet folks with day jobs
+ solid soundproofing
