I like these types of videos but what a dump. Reminds me of the London shitholes that I lived in. And $2200/month for that tiny place. It's two bedrooms in name only. In actual fact, it's one bedroom, one box room, and a combined living room/kitchenette. It's a studio with a bedroom and a box room.
Those box rooms are horrible. I lived in one. Literally, it's only big enough to fit a matress. Nothing else.
How people can live like that is beyond me. And this girl is excited about living in that place. Right from the start with that dilapidated door with a weird sign on it. Crazy. Where was she living BEFORE that she finds a place like that exciting?
You hear dimwits say, "Oh, just move out of London. It's not just London, you know. There are other parts of the UK that you can live in. If you live in London, you deserve to live in squalor." The difficulty is that London is where the jobs are. Even if you're just looking for work in an office or something, there are only so many offices in, say, Nottingham. And from what I've seen of office jobs in Glasgow, the pay is worse. Of course, the cost of living is also quite a bit lower.
Here's one for Chicago. Let's check it out:
Sorry about that, guys. I only made it 15 seconds in. Very pretentious.
Oh wait. I skimmed the rest and it gets better after the first 30 seconds. Some sort of black or mixed race girl. The girl from New York was black as well. Kind of weird.
It looks alright for a studio, I guess. Full bathroom. Nice marble or faux marble shit. But I bet she's paying a fortune. She's a student so probably blowing all of her loan money on that place.
Oh wait. $1200. And the place has a gym and a doorman and a rooftop deck (whatever good that is). So yeah, you clearly get a lot more in Chicago for your money. I was paying £700 or something in that last shitty place in London so that was like $1000. So similar price but my place was much, much worse. And this girl is probably in the city centre. I was out in the sticks.
Anyway, the point is that if it's at all possible to leave London or New York, you should do that. But I don't judge those who don't.
