Hi there! My name's Katy and I'm looking to recommend someone for a 12 month lease for a 711sq ft, 1 bedroom in South Austin. Rent is $846 and includes the following amenities: full washer/dryer, walk in closet, 9 foot ceilings, central air, dishwasher, garbage disposal, gourmet kitchen, microwave, private entrances (much like having your own townhome!), and track lighting. This apartment complex also has its own dog park, swimming pool, hot tub, DVD rentals, 24-hour emergency maintenance, gated entrance, community wifi/community business center, outdoor grilling area, a beautiful clubhouse with a fitness room, access to a kitchen which is always stocked with goodies, and a helpful, friendly staff. Many of the people that live here are college students or young professionals, so it's perfect for someone that's just starting out in the adult world. :) There's also plenty of restaurants, H.E.B, Walmart, Target and a cineplex within a mile, so there's lots to do without venturing out too far! Downtown Austin is a 10 minute drive away.

Basically, I'm looking for someone to sign their own 12 month lease and move into my apartment. This does not mean you will be taking over *my* lease -- you will have your own. I unfortunately need to leave Austin because I've found a better paying job in another city, but I need to recommend someone to do it! Help a girl out, yeah? :) If you'd like more information or pictures of my apartment, please don't hesitate to ask. If you could pass this along to anyone you know that's looking for an apartment, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks guys, and I hope to hear from you soon!
- Katy

Fundraiser for RBI Austin [07 Jul 2011|04:55pm]

RBI Austin is a collaboration between Total City Sports and the Major League Baseball association. It is a youth outreach program designed to revive baseball in inner cities. Anyone can join and the fee is $10/child but if this is difficult to reach, RBI Austin will work with the family. More can be found here at their website, http://www.totalcitysports.org/rbiaustin.html.

Anyhoo..... The Pizza Hut at 8500 N. Lamar is doing a fundraiser night for RBI Austin. Redeem the flyer below with your pizza purchase and Pizza Hut will donate 20% back to RBI Austin.

July 12th is also the night of Major League Baseball's All-Star game so it's a good opportunity to order pizza, watch some baseball and support a good cause!

Oh and if you would like to join the summer league, there is still time. Just let me know and I can get you more info. :)

[ mood | chipper ]

(Hope this is ok-I'm just helping out my friend.)

So my friend and a partner are starting their own house cleaning business here in Austin. Right now their Facebook page is their website. It is viewable to all and has their contact information on the info page.
Give them a call and "like" their profile page if you do Facebook.

" Very affordable housecleaning. No job is too big or too dirty, and we don't
pass judgement. We are just interested in helping out and making a
little cash. We will also work for barter in the right situation."

Plain fried rice in Austin: a pipe dream? [05 Nov 2010|03:22pm]

Anyone know a Chinese place in south Austin that does plain fried rice? Most places have been confused by my request and say they don't do it, as if they've never heard of someone getting it without the vegetables. Surely this is not so strange? Thanks for the help.

[31 Oct 2010|12:38pm]

Does anyone here attend Austin Community College and if so, how is it? What kind of degree are you pursuing? I'm looking into job training programs that could help me get a clerical job or something of that nature. I have a totally useless liberal arts degree and I'm tired of my shitty job and being poor, so I'm thinking of going to community college if it makes me any more employable. I know a lot of people go to community college with the intention of transferring to a 4 year university (which is what I should've done, probably) but I've noticed you can take courses to get certified as an administrative assistant or something of that nature. Thoughts?

I was going to go to graduate school but I doubt I can get into any programs with a cumulative 3.2 GPA and also I don't feel comfortable investing tons of money in it considering I already have almost twenty thousand dollars in student loans to pay off (and I've been paying mostly interest on it for the past five years, apparently).

h'lo Austin [06 Oct 2010|10:14pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Greetings, kids.

I just moved here yesterday, and am currently staying with a kind friend/crashing couches/living out of my car until I can make enough money to get settled. I am looking for any kind of job (I have an undergraduate degree in Communication Studies and half of a Master's in Library and Information Science), and am also wondering about services for homeless or impoverished people. Do y'all have any suggestions on some good web resources for finding out about the different services offered here? What about bartering services with other people as well, is there a program for bringing those people together here? And how in the world do you search the Texas gov't jobsite for specifically state-based jobs?

Thank you very much,

Shoujo Manga/Anime fans? [27 Sep 2010|09:19am]

Hi folks! I'm currently working on bringing together a bunch of Austin-ites that happen to be fans of shoujo or josei manga and anime. I know there are plenty of anime fans in the area, but I was really looking to find those who are interested in this particular niche.

Are there any fans of shoujo/josei titles - that is, titles aimed at girls and women?

Thanks for your time!
