You have been living in a co-op in North Berkeley for the past two years, paying $950/month, which was just a little more than you could afford; you shopped at Grocery Outlet (which you call “Gross-Out” for short) instead of Berkeley Bowl to save money.

Everyone else in the house is between 25 and 34 and queer and/or vegan, and voted for Bernie Sanders. You decide it’s time to move.
