It's funny how things can change so fast. A week ago I was really sad and thought about just forgetting about Berlin and moving somewhere else. I still haven't found an apartment, and I was actually turned down by one I thought I would get and really wanted, but it doesn't matter. Things are going well with my career, and I feel very lucky. I am in a good mood, and I appreciate the things around me; talking with someone over the phone late at night means so much to me, or watching film with the roomies, drinking rosé and eating candy. I really do feel lucky. It might sound like a round of babble, but sometimes it's nice to remember all the other things in life that makes you happy and not only focus on arrogant apartment people. So thank you, you know who you are.

Hi! And welcome :)
Thanks for the support on the haus search - it will happen eventually, but I didn't know I had to go through so many first... Thanks for checking in!

Ah I do remember the apartment hunt in Berlin, it isnt easy, and you will go see sooo many, and want all of them, but they ever call you back... But dont give up, something will find you, - and that one, will be the best of them all:-)

TrineB; thank you :) I know, it's just crazy it has to take so long! But yes, something will come :)

that's really frustrating to look for an appartment..especially in such popular cities like Berlin, Hamburg or München.
I have been looking for a place in Dortmund (and I thought noone wants to live there=)) and it took more than 3 months..but eventually you will find it! just don't give up!

Shurupchik: Very frustrating...! I have been looking for two months now and nothing seems to be happening. But yes, eventually it will. My friend had to look for 6 months (!) before she found something, it's crazy!
