Taking on the Roommate Challenge

Moving into the Boulevard 88 condo resulted in me having a roommate for the first time. I had been living by myself in my own room during my days as a child because I was an only child. When I was in college, I got a single room, while everyone else had double rooms with roommates. This was by choice, because I didn’t want to have to deal with any drama from a roommate. As I became an adult, I became more accepting to the idea of having a roommate, especially since I didn’t want to pay the cost of living in a place on my own. It’s better to split the cost with someone else.

I didn’t just room with anyone. I had a friend who lived with his parents in Singapore and wanted to move out so he could finally experience freedom. We put our heads together and thought about some places that would be a good spot to call our home. That’s when we agreed that Boulevard 88 would be the best option and talked to the owner about getting a condo in the complex. Once we were granted the condo and given the keys, we started moving all of our items from our old homes into the condo.

Our parents were a little sad to see us move out, but they were also glads, because we were finally leaving the nest, and they could have the homes all to themselves. They’ve probably been waiting for this day since we first came home from the hospital and started wailing for our baby bottles. I’d probably feel the same way if I had kids of my own. Moving in was a daunting task because of how much stuff the both of us had to bring inside, but once we were done, we were able to bask in the glory of the condo.
