Ok, so I got really lucky. My sight unseen apartment is nice! Yay! I was so worried. My dad has said before “You can live anywhere for a year”. I thought that might be true at one point, but now I’m not so sure. He said that before for my first apartment for medical school. I should have trusted my instinct when I said, “No, no I can’t live here”. Even more so when he said, “Just think of it like camping”. Say what?
Now don’t get me wrong, I love camping and love being outdoors. However, an apartment is not suppose to feel like camping. Let’s just say it was a terrible year, like really, really terrible. Perhaps sometime I’ll tell you some stories from that dark time.
Actually, though, I will say I walked past it recently and saw that there was this huge sign on the window posted by the city and it had all of these violations checked off. So there, I knew there were a ton of problems with the place. I’m glad something is finally being done about it.
Ok, old memories aside, about half an hour or so before I got to my new apartment I was like “UGH, what if I have to clean it before we can move in my things?” Serious concern. I’ve had to majorly clean all my previous apartments, even though I had seen them before I had moved in (but were just left a mess :(). Therefore, I was a bit worried since I hadn’t even seen this one yet.
Guess what?! I barely had to clean anything!! It was awesome!! Yay! Haha. Know what else is really exciting? I have a washer and dryer. My own washer and dryer located in my apartment. This is huge. I haven’t had my own washer and dryer in any of my old apartments. So, for the past 9 years I’ve had to deal with carrying my wash somewhere (sometimes to a creepy basement). I am so thrilled to not have to deal with that any longer.
Even better? Move in day went smoothly, stair climbing and all so I’m thankful for that! It was hot out, so it’s again time to cool off and recharge with something nice and refreshing. How about this vegetarian high protein/fiber and low carb chickpea walnut salad?
Any apartment stories out there?
Anybody have to deal with toting your laundry somewhere?
