Finally! A Good Day and A Visit to the Land of Yogurt…

It seems that lately everyone has been obsessed with this place, Yogurtland. My girlfriend will randomy crave it, I have a friend who dreamt about it, and my sister will ask to go there everytime we drive by.

Yogurtland is located on the corner of University ave. and Metcalf st., where Volcano Joe’s used to be. In high school, it used to be Burger King and then Mos Burger (which we always called Moss Burger).

There’s almost always a line going out the door, but it moves pretty quickly. The picture above shows their yogurt wall where you can mix and match a large variety of flavors. After you fill up your cup, you move over to their toppings bar and pick what you want. Put as much or as little as you want (topping and yogurt); Yogurtland charges you by weight.

I’m not a big yogurt fan, but even I liked their chocolate mint yogurt with oreo cookie topping.

To those following what’s been going on with our moving situation, I feel so grateful that I can finally deliver some good news. After greedy landlords #1 and #2 screwed us over, I thought our good karma would come in the form of a bigger and better apartment. It would be a place we could take pictures of and not-so-anonymously send pictures messages to those jerks.

Well, we did get good karma, but not in the way I expected.

I called my landlord yesterday to see if he had already found a tenant. He didn’t and I asked if we could do a six month lease with him. “However long,” he told me. “Stay as long as you like.”

When I told him about what happened with those people, he said, “That’s awful. Those people are so rotten. What kind of people say they’re gonna rent to you and then screw you over?” He even offered to lower the rent for the next six months, but I gracious declined and told him that just the fact that he’s been so nice about everything and said we can extend our lease was more than enough.

So, I mean, we did get good karma in the form of a bigger and better apartment. I also have a new found appreciation for my landlord. After dealing with all those potential landlords in the past weeks (plus my previous renting experience in DC), I am SO grateful for my landlord now. I’m really fortunate.

Everything worked out and perhaps this is where Kimi and I are supposed to be right now.

I can finally remove that “Moving Out” counter from my blog sidebar with a sigh of relief.
