I saw an ad for a studio cottage in Oakland, so I went over there after work, yesterday, to check out the neighborhood. I liked what I saw. I came home, intending to email the landlord about attending the open house, this weekend. But the ad had already been taken down. Everything goes fast, these days. The bay area rental market is insane and just gets worse and worse. I'll keep searching, but I'm not optimistic about the likelihood of moving any time soon. I think I am fucked.
