Texas is Where My Home is

When someone asks me how I ended up in Lewisville when I lived in New York City for the majority of my adult life, I usually tell them I got bored and hopped in my car one day. Lewisville is where I ended up, and I fell in love with the town. I do end up telling them the truth, but I think my fanciful version is much more interesting! What really happened is my father was diagnosed with cancer. I started looking at Lewisville TX luxury apartments within a week of his diagnosis because I realized that I just wanted to be closer to him and my mom.

I know they would have let me stay with them, but I am just too independent for that. Continue reading Texas is Where My Home is

My Husband Was Right About Moving to This State

I’d never been to Florida, but my husband kept telling me that I would love it there. He had visited once when he was a teenager. There was nothing I could really do about it because we had no choice if my husband wanted to keep the promotion he’d just been given, which was to come about with a move there. We started looking for apartments in Tampa FL one weekend when we flew out, and I have to say, I really did like the area! I never expected to feel at home there, but I did.

Ive been around mountains all my life. So, I had never been to the beach, and I really didn’t know what it would be like to live in any area of the country where it’s pretty flat. Continue reading My Husband Was Right About Moving to This State

An Apartment for the Three of Us

My husband loves to golf, so his only request when I started looking at apartments in South End Charlotte NC was to find one that is relatively close to a golf course. Since there are several in the area, I did a search on the golf courses first, because I wanted to make sure we got close to one that is highly regarded by local golfers. There were a lot of great comments about Renaissance Golf Course, so I looked in that general area for an apartment for the two of us and our teen son.

I was not worried about the schooling there, because our son is home schooled. We already knew that he was going to be in the best place to get an education, which is our very own apartment. Continue reading An Apartment for the Three of Us

Does It Have a Community Room?

One of the main things that I was looking for in my apartment community was whether or not they had a pool and a community room. While it may not seem like a big deal, if you are going to have a get together and want to use the pool then Simpsonville SC apts should have a community room near the pool. All of the summer birthdays in my family were had by a pool when I had my house. My kids are in college and there is no reason for me to have such a large home, but I do want an area that I could use when I have everyone over. I would not want to have all of my stuff out by the pool so having a place to put all of our food and our things in a community room would be best. Continue reading Does It Have a Community Room?

Atlanta Already Feels Like Home to Us

I wanted to find a nice apartment to live in, but I knew next to nothing about Atlanta. My husband was informed that he would be transferred there if he wanted to take advantage of a newly created position at his company’s headquarters, so it was a pretty hard offer to turn down. I saw a couple of ads that said to click here for the best apartments in the area, so I did. As it turned out, I really did find a great place for us to live.

The Encore is in the heart of the city, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Though it is just my husband and myself, I still wanted us to have two bedrooms. Continue reading Atlanta Already Feels Like Home to Us

Fun and Young City to Grow

I have been looking for a nice city to move to. I am in my thirties, recently divorced, and I wanted to go to a warm city in the south. I have lived through many cold winters and I knew that I wanted to move to a warmer climate. You get to a point in your life where you want a change and this was the biggest one I was going to start. I looked up apartments in San Antonio to see how much rent cost down in that area of Texas. I know that there are a lot of companies based in the city, along with a lot of younger people. There are military and research centers down in the city, so that means that there are a lot of younger people. This is nice for me when I want to go to a bar after work, or when I hit the gym, there are going to be a lot of people around my age.

I think that this is a good place to go and get a restart because most of the places that I will frequent will have people my age who are looking for new friends or people to find things in common with. When you find that you have things in common with people, you tend to gravitate towards one another. I know that there are several groups that get together from the looks of a local app. When you download it, you can find out the different things that people are doing together in large groups. Everything from wine tastings at different bars to having a group hike by the river, there is something for everyone. I think when you live in a city, this is one of the best things to look forward too, more people to connect with.

I Like Living Near the City

My mother, knowing that I wanted to move, suggested I look into apartments in Atlantic Station Atlanta GA. I was intrigued, not by the fact that I would be moving to another section of Atlanta, but that I might be able to move to an area that is close to the city but sort of outside of the hustle and bustle. If you’re not familiar with Atlanta, it’s been one of America’s fastest growing cities for quite some time now. That means you end up with all the problems of a rapidly growing city, including crime and increased traffic.

The traffic alone is a nightmare. In fact, it was a nightmare decades ago too. I’ve lived here a long time and don’t remember a time where it felt safe to drive on the busy streets in this town. Continue reading I Like Living Near the City

I Swapped Apartments with a Friend

It happens every year, my friend from childhood and all through school will come back from Georgia for a couple of weeks. His family used to live on the corner of the same street I lived on and he will come back to see his Mom. She lives in a condo which is not more than a couple of miles from my apartment. At any rate this year he and I worked out a swap and I really came out on the best end of it. If you click here you can see the place where he lives. In fact I am down here to see the sights in Atlanta with my girlfriend. So far we have gone to see two Braves games, the new SunTrust park is really close to this place and that is a good thing since you would have a devil of a time getting out of the game if you were driving. Continue reading I Swapped Apartments with a Friend

I Am Moving to the Other Side of Dallas

Of course I liked this place a ton when I was in college. The reason was pretty simple, it is a big house which was large enough for five guys to live in. That is only a great thing when you are dividing the rent five ways, which basically meant that I was paying about one third of what it would cost me to live by myself. However now I am going to look for an apartment in North Dallas, because that is where I am working right now. It is not really possible for me to commute all of the way across the city since I have to be at the office really early in the morning. Continue reading I Am Moving to the Other Side of Dallas

Their Wifi is the Best I’ve Used

The best thing about looking for luxury apartments for South Charlotte is getting away from a place where the wireless amenities are next to worthless. I cannot fathom how, in this day and age, so many apartment facilities have horrible wifi. It is absolutely ridiculous and frankly it is unacceptable when they keep raising the rent while not improving the service. I’ve fought epic battles with landlords over cruddy internet services in several places. The end result usually saw me leaving for greener pastures. I simply refuse to put up with it. I can deal with noisy neighbors, but not bad internet.

Why is it so important to me? Because I work from home. I do all of my work over the internet and it is imperative that the service work well. I can’t deal with lengthy outages, slow connection times, and all the other problems one associates with poor online services. Continue reading Their Wifi is the Best I’ve Used

First High School Kid I Have Seen in a Long Time Who Really Has Pro Football Abilities

I have heard plenty of moms and dads tell me how their kids were going to be the next NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL stars. I have heard them tell me how their kids could catch, throw, hit, skate or other stuff at a phenomenal level. Then I would see the kids play. Sure, they were good. Maybe they even have some potential to go pro. However, every once in a while you see a kid who really is that good. I saw it in a high school football player. I recommended a Denver personal trainer to the parents of the kid. They are my neighbors, and I have watched that boy play football from the time he was learning how to run. Continue reading First High School Kid I Have Seen in a Long Time Who Really Has Pro Football Abilities

Finding an Apartment in Revere, MA for Young Professional

My brother just graduated from law school and landed a job in Boston. With limited time until his new job started he enlisted my help in finding his first apartment as a full-fledged adult. I narrowed the search down to an easy commute to his place of work and then began looking for apartments for Revere MA new professionals. Especially apartment complexes with garages to house his first brand new car, a graduation gift to himself.

My brother had spent much of his time in college and law school living with a variety of roommates, in a variety of dorms, fraternity housing and other shared living accommodations. Continue reading Finding an Apartment in Revere, MA for Young Professional

I Found a New Place to Live

In fact I was living in Hermitage, but the people in that apartment complex were really off the hook. They liked to party a bit too much. I did not mind it when they wanted to do it on the weekends. It is not like I never pop the top on a cold one myself and when I was younger I did my fair share of partying every night of the week. However I had to move and find a nice two bedroom apartments for rent in Antioch TN. This place is about perfect for where I am working right now and Jesse likes it because her folks live in Antioch, they got them a place right on Percy Priest. Continue reading I Found a New Place to Live

Getting Ready to Start Grad School

It took me a little while to get ready for this, because I needed to have some money in my pocket and I needed to find a teaching assistant’s job. Of course the rest of it has fallen into place pretty well. I found another grad student who needed a roommate, obviously because that saves you about two fifths of what a single bedroom apartment would cost. We decided on these pretty nice apartments in Rio Rancho NM, he convinced me of this by showing me the swimming pool there on a Saturday afternoon. There were a lot of pretty college girls there and he introduced me to a couple that he knew. Of course since it is winter and I just came from West Virginia I was as pale as a ghost. I have gotten over that pretty quickly, although I sort of overdid it at first. That is really easy here. They say that it is cool here this time of the year, but so far I have not noticed. Continue reading Getting Ready to Start Grad School

The Nicest Apartment I’ve Ever Had

The luxury apartments in Stone Oak are really nice. I thought that it would be too expensive for me to live at such a nice apartment complex,so I was happy to see that it was definitely within my budget for living expenses. I only needed a one bedroom apartment, and I did not need a big one at that. I was able to choose the smallest one, and it still had more room than what I am used to in an apartment. There is a nice porch that I can use that is private, and all the living space is upstairs.

The living room is massive in size. My last one was 10 feet by 9 feet, and this one is 16 feet by 12 feet, so the size difference is really nice. The bedroom is also larger by several feet. There is a very large walk in closet too. I have a lot of clothes and shoes, and they don’t even fill up the entire closet. The single bath is right off my bedroom.
