.....and that "lie" is, as some of you know, that I have actually been living in Pioneer Square (mips) for the last several months, in a Transitional Housing Program.
During that time, I was getting help with applying for permanent, Subsidized Housing, and other benefits.
I was awarded Social Security Disability, and was able to start looking into affordable Market Rate Housing, as the waitlist for Subsidized are so long (typical minimum is three years.)
Anyway, I signed a lease on a very reasonably priced apartment, in Highland Park today, so I'm officially back in West Seattle!
I'm still paid up through the end of the month in Transitional, so am not going to be rushed out the door there. That'll give me a chance to get some basic essentials (which is looking good already, thanks to friends that have already replied to an e-mail I sent out!)
Anyway, I know many of you have been wondering what was going on in my life now, and this is it!
I would like to thank everyone that has helped me out throughout all of this, and also to thank everyone that has helped out Nickelsville, and continues to do so, even long after I left!
