First of all, This is the first post after almost 2 years of not posting anything. One of my new year’s resolutions is to try to revive this blog and add new material.

So, since I have been moving around basically every year, I thought I should write about my process of finding a new apartment, just in case someone else may find this post useful someday. This applies only if you’re going to rent. I cannot really say what the process is like if you’re planning on buying a home. Let me note that this post is more focused on my experience in the San Francisco Bay Area. This may or may not apply to other areas, so if you are reading this somewhere else, please take that into account.


Many of us have heard about the new search engine Wolfram Alpha (made by the same folks who are behind Mathematica, the computational software used in mathematical, engineering, and scientific fields). The new search engine only came online yesterday, but has been hyped up for quite a while now. Even before it was open for the public, some people called it “the Google Killer”, even without using it themselves, but only based on some articles and demonstrative preview videos released by the developers.
