It's been months since I moved out of my old residence and started looking for a new place to live in.
But it feels like it's been much longer than that.
It's one of the most frustrating things I've ever had to do in my life; and it can be quite discouraging, especially when it looks like you might have gotten a break - but then everything suddenly falls through.
I've spoken to friends about it, received a lot of assurance from them that it's normal for it to take this long, as well as helpful tips on how to improve my chances of finding something. But the search is still taking much longer than I'd like it to. 😣
It's through this experience that I've discovered how much I dislike waiting, and how impatient I can get when I have to wait.
