    He's roomating with a friend right now, and i've stayed with him a couple months at a time every now and then. I guess I've really been living in two places at once for this year.

    I am a little worried about going through stress with finding a place when we get there, and the fact that the only furniture he has is an air mattress. He just moved out of the Barracks In May/June. And has either been on leave or in school. So we havent had a need to buy any furniture.

    Ahh, air mattresses...how I love, yet hate, them

    We lived in a hotel for 3 weeks, and then when we moved into our place on base, it was another 4-5 weeks before we got a bed or furniture, so we were sleeping on an air mattress for awhile, and it was comfortable for about 3 days

    You'll want to contact the housing office to find out how soon/when you can get on the waiting list.

    Can I go to Hawaii with you? I MISS IT SO MUCH. Back to the topic, if you are looking on craigslist and other websites to find a place off post, don't waste your time. 99% of the people will NEVER email you or call you back. It made no sense, it was a very common trend there. Sign up on ahrn.com. It's a housing website made for the military. When I moved to Hawaii, 2 days after signing up on that website, I had a lease signed for our apartment. We lived in Mililani and we loved it. We also got an amazing deal on our apartment, we paid 1400 a month for our 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment. Sounds crazy reading that now lol.

    Oh my gosh!! Thank you! I completely forgot i made an account for ahrn. I was just beginning to think all the websites were useless anyway.

    Oh wow, see thats crazy to me! I live in Texas, and you can get a pretty nice 1 bedroom apartment for half that! Or a decent 2 bedroom house for less also.

    but its not Texas, its Hawaii. this place has an astronomical cost of living. At least you'll have COLA but it can fluctuate as well.
