Apartment hunting is hard... and it only gets easier when you don't have to do it anymore. But honestly, it's a necessary evil for some of us.

1. When you call apartment complexes and they don't answer...

Giphy

It's fine. It's not like it's 2 p.m. and you say you're open until 6 p.m. I'll just leave. Thanks anyways.

2. When you finally get through to someone, and they're helpful!

Giphy

You wanna come see the place? Yes! Here is: our fee, what we have available, price range, and parking arrangements!

3. When you go on a walk through and it's nothing like it is online...

Giphy

I have been lied to, and I don't like being lied to!

4. When you're trying to leave the complex and ask a resident for help...

Giphy

Thanks.... guess we can cross "friendly neighbors" off the list of perks.

5. Trying to make polite small talk with the apartment guides...

Giphy

Yeah... I have no idea what to say to you. You're our last choice right now.... but I'll be in touch!

6. When you finally turn in an application to a not completely horrible place!

Giphy

It's basically a victory!

7. When you really like an apartment, but they don't like you...

Giphy

It's... fine. Everything's fine. Not really, but it's fine.

8. When the apartment complex people high key judge you...

Giphy

I'm not one of you... I know... I just need a place to sing into my hairbrush and walk around in sweatpants. Please stop judging me.

9. When your parents ask where you're moving to, and you don't know... Still.

Giphy

I promise I'll let you know a month before we move... probably.

10. When the guide shows you a two bedroom apartment...

Giphy

Really, they just want to have more of your money... but ya know... It's fine.

Apartment hunting is hard work... but sometimes it's nice to sit back and laugh at yourself and all the struggles you've gone through. And what better way to do that than with John Mulaney? He gets it... Probably.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.
