social studies story, mefi link, neighbor leaves town

Here’s my story — which they completely overplayed in today’s paper, not that I’m complaining — about social studies dragging down school ratings.
I really didn’t mean to make Metafilter all weepy.
If you’re looking for a place to live near downtown Dallas, my neighbor’s moving out today. I won’t lie: he won’t be missed. Dumb as a box of rocks, annoying, deeply uninteresting at every level. (Mystery Of Life #3,267: He’s unattractive, stupid, unemployed, completely without charm — but has the hottest damned girlfriend in the building.) It’s an okay apartment, though, with a great location. With him gone, I officially have no neighbors, which means I can play bad guitar as loudly as I want at 2 a.m. That’s good for no one.

  1. Hi! I’ve never posted on your site before, but, I have been reading for a month or two and me likey. You live in very nice apartments! However, when I looked at the rent, my contacts nearly committed suicide. As a Fort Worth resident, I guess I’m pampered. I have a 750 sq ft (or so) apartment @ $585 a month. I’d never make it “in the big city”.

  2. Yeah, I probably pay too much. (Although my rent’s not that much higher than yours — I think I got the cheapest place in the complex.) But I justify it by thinking about how much time I save with my five-minute commute to work.
