Started Looking for a New Place to Live

Started looking for a new place to live this morning. Of course I want to find a place where I can live alone and affordably, since it has not worked out very well when I tried to share a place with another guy. If you click here you can see what it costs to get a place around here. That is the place I was sharing with Mike. Of course his name was on the lease and that made it easy for me to walk away when he stopped paying his share of the bills. If my name had been on the lease I would have had to try to kick him out and then find some other person to replace him, but that was not necessary and I am very pleased that I was able to get out of it without being caught in the box. I am looking to get a place where I do not have to worry about depending on a roommate. That seems a bit more complicated and it does not work out so well all of the time.

In theory a guy to share the expenses is great. In particular it is great if you have cable and you are paying for the internet. Two guys can split the cost of those things and be no worse off obviously. Since I need the internet I have to pay for that by my own self if I get a room alone, but I was ending up paying all of it in the old deal. The guy I was living with started out doing stuff like he said that he would, but over time he started sliding. At the end he was not even pretending to pay any of the bills. Of course he had to know I was only going to take so much.

Moving into My Own Apartment

When my roomie and I got into a disagreement about her boyfriend moving in with us, I decided to make things easier so we did not ruin our friendship. I had heard about the apartments at Creeks on Kirk Levington, and I figured I could look into them. Not only would it put me closer to where I work, but it would also salvage our friendship. Her boyfriend could then move in, and I would be able to enjoy my newfound freedom in a one bedroom apartment. Don’t get me wrong. Having a roommate is great, but I was really looking forward to being just on my own for a change.

I have seen the apartments that I wanted to look at, but I did not know very much about them. I knew there had to be something online about them, so I moved my search there. I was really excited about all of the information that I found there. I was able to get a feel for the apartment community there as well as information on the one bedroom apartments. I got even more excited when I saw the long list of amenities, mainly because the apartment we had been sharing had very few of them.

The two things that excited me the most were the fact that I would have laundry hookups in my apartment and also that I would be able to pay my rent online. I have very odd hours with my work, and sometimes it is hard for me to be available during normal business hours. My roomie had paid the rent before because of this, so it was nice that I would not need to resort to mailing a payment through the mail. That is just one of the many, many things that this apartment complex offers, and it truly has become my own personal haven. I love it that much!
