I Wanted a Brighter Apartment

Do you want to know what made me move from my apartment to one of the nicer and more luxury apartments for South Charlotte NC area residents? I know some people may think it is because of the location, which I admit is very nice as it puts me about 10 minutes closer to my job, cutting down on my commute time. Others think it is because of the amazing features that CityPark View South offers to all of its residents. I admit those things are nice too, especially the fitness center since I was able to cancel my gym membership which was quite pricey.

While those things are nice, it is not what made me move. I was visiting a friend at his new apartment here at CityPark View South, and I was amazed at how well lit his apartment is. I am not talking about the light bulbs in the ceiling fixtures either. Continue reading

My Own Personal Home Sweet Home

I discovered at a very early age that I needed my place to be powerful. I had to abide by my parents rules because I lived in their house. I had no power. At times, my parents rules were unfair and unjust to me. When I graduated from college, I was hesitant to move back in with my parents, but I had no choice. I did not have the money to move out and the economy was bad. After two years, I decided to look for apartments in Manassas. I could not take living under my parents roof and their control.

As soon as I graduated from college, I needed a place to live. The recession was in full bloom and I had a hard time finding a job in my major. I did not want to live with my parents, but I was out of options. Continue reading

Figuring out What I Should Do

I started to look for a place of my own as soon as I had some money saved up for the project. If you click here you can see the place I looked at today. It was probably too nice for my budget. Myself and one of my college buddies have been living together for about two and a half years. It was pretty great so long as neither of us had a real job. We would stay up late every other night, then wear sunglasses to class the next morning. So long as I did not have to get up early in the morning I was okay with the exact same stuff that he and the neighbors are up to right now. By that I mean that there is a party going on almost non stop in this part of the world. Continue reading

All Three of Us Want to Make the Big Move Together

My kids asking been bugging me often to take them to a pretty well-known theme park for the last couple of years. So on my daughter’s birthday, I surprised her and her brother by telling them that we were driving to California to do what they had wanted to do for ages. By the time we left there to go back home, I had already made a pit stop at some apartments for Colton CA residents because I wondered what it would be like to live there or another nearby building. I’m a manager at a well-known department store and we have a location in that city. I knew that all I would need to do is wait until a management position came open at that location and then I would be able to slide right in and have a job right away there.

I didn’t tell the kids right away of my plans. I just did things nonchalantly and listened carefully to what they had to say about it. Continue reading

Staying in Mission Viejo Now

Of course this is sort of like a holiday for me and I could not ever afford to live in this place. It belongs to my boss’ ex wife and I suppose that he would not be too thrilled if he knew that I was her at her apartments in Mission Viejo watching this fat lazy dog for her. She says that I am one of the few people that the dog likes, I know it did not get along with my boss. The woman treats this dog like it was her only child. If she eats a steak this old basset hound gets a steak. In fact she left a couple of really nice steaks in her fridge, but that dog just did not get either of them. One of them I made for breakfast with eggs and grits and some saw mill gravy. It was a really great breakfast and I let the dog have the bone and the gristle. Continue reading

Fleeing to the Northern States

Have you been on the search for a new apartment? Have you decided, like so many others in recent weeks, to flee from the south and head to the wonderful, liberal north where President Trump’s touch is as unwanted as his presidency? Then you might be in the market for one of these beautiful apartments for rent in Silver Spring MD. You might think me something of an extremeist for wanting to move out of the South but after the most absurd debacle with President Trump cutting off so many people from entering America, can you honestly believe that his supporters are going to be open minded enough to accept those who do not approve of his presidency?

I’m genuinely afraid for this country, for myself and for those that I care about. The type of rabid supporters that President Trump has drawn to him is incredibly concerning. Continue reading
