Moving out of My Parents’ House

When my brother told me he wanted to show me a website, I honestly had no idea what to expect because he can be the world’s biggest practical joker at times. This just happened to not be one of those times. Instead of something shocking, it was actually a really nice apartment complex. I asked him what it was about, and he thought that it would be perfect for me. He knew that I had been thinking about moving out of our parents’ home for a while, but I had not taken any steps to do it.

I honestly don’t know why I kept putting it off, but I knew that there was no going back after looking at that website. There were just so many nice things about it, and I had my first taste of independence. (more…)

I Am Now Going Back to the Dentist

I woke up the other day in a lot of pain. The last time I had a toothache, I think I was probably in high school. I used to visit a dentist regularly, but this was something that had just fallen by the wayside for me in the last few years. I take really good care of my teeth, but I guess not good enough. Otherwise, I would have already had a regular dentist in Denver since I had been living here for nearly two years. I wasn’t really concerned with any of that at the time though.

I just wanted to find a dentist that could see me that morning. There is no pain in the world like a toothache, at least to me. I am sure women will say labor pains are worse, but I am talking from a man’s perspective. (more…)

Don’t Let Fear of Dentists End Up Causing You to Need a Root Canal Like I Did

I felt a twinge in a molar months ago. Of course I discounted it to be nothing. That is what you do when you don’t feel comfortable around dentist offices. And, of course, pain in a tooth means nothing. Yeah, right. In the back of my mind I knew that the tooth would need looked at, but I was hoping to put it off as long as possible. That is not a good idea as it leads to extractions. When it really started to hurt, I got online and found a website for a local dentist in Denver, Colorado. I needed someone that had a same-day appointment for people in pain. I was surprised when they told me to come in right away.

When I got there I was uncomfortable sitting in the chair. No, the chair itself was not uncomfortable; it was just being in a dentist’s office that got my anxiety going. I get really nervous thinking about the potential for pain even though I was already in pain. (more…)

I Really Like This Apartment Complex

I have been looking at apartments all week, and I really wish that I could afford the place that I went to see this morning. It is called the Lyric and the place is really nice, as you can easily see if you check out their website. I loved the place, especially what they call the community amenities. They have a terrific swimming pool, they describe it as resort style pool. That just means that it is really nice. There were lots of girls when I checked the place out today and obviously that is how you really judge a swimming pool. They also have a fitness center. (more…)

We Found an Apartment in Las Vegas That Does Not Have Dog Size Restrictions

When we wanted to move to a new place in the Las Vegas area we looked and looked for an apartment that would take dogs of all sizes. Pretty much every new place was on the bandwagon of accepting pets and providing dog parks, but they had limits on the weight for dogs they would accept. My wife found the Bloom Apartments that do not have any size restrictions on dogs. This would be perfect for us as we have two highly trained Mastiffs that are well over 100 pounds each.

They are clean, trained and not noisy. Now, on the other hand, my mom has a small dog that is kind of temperamental, doesn’t listen half the time and is always barking. New neighbors where we were moving from do not even know we have dogs until they see us out with them. That’s why I never understood size restrictions for dogs in apartments. However, I guess it falls back on the owners and how they train their pets. (more…)

I’m Happy Where I Am in Life Right Now

The place that I live in now, is the cat’s meow. I tell all my friends to go to www.padonharvard.com online to see the place if they mention that they are apartment hunting. It doesn’t look like any apartment complexes I have ever seen before, and I love to show the property off when any of my friends and family come to visit me. I am energized by the way my surroundings look. And everything here is high quality and so beautiful. It makes me feel like I’m not really living in an apartment.

One day I will have a home, but for now I’m happy with where I’m living. I would really rather wait until I’m married and have children before I get a house. I do have a girlfriend, and we have been dating for about three years. We have talked together about getting married one, but because we’re going to school, we are in no big hurry. (more…)

Patience Found Me the Perfect Apartment

I wanted to look at the community website for the Rodgers Forge apartment because I knew that was where I would get the most comprehensive information for the area that I wanted to move to. I also wanted to see the floor plans for the various units so I could make the right decision. I used to make hasty decisions, thinking that those were the ones that saw the most results, but I have since learned that taking time to make sure each decision is the right one is actually what works best for me.

That is why I wanted to look at the website in detail, as well as the various floor plans, so I could make sure that I was making the best choice for my family. I have two young daughters who live with their mother, but I get to see them on the weekends. (more…)

Moving out of the Metro Area Saves Us Money on Our Monthly Rent

We were making our new budget, and the rent increase was not sustainable. We needed to move a little further outside of the urban area to get a lower lease rate. I had no idea how much less you could pay and how much more you could get out of an apartment by just getting out of those apartment buildings in the city. We were looking at apartments in far North Dallas, and we found a place that had bigger rooms and even a private balcony in a place where we could afford the monthly lease.

I could not believe how much less we could pay and get more. This place had a pool and everything. We were able to get a two bedroom place for less than we were paying at our old apartment. We toured the place, and everything was up to our specifications. We liked the location, the landscaping is mature, the apartment has good AC and ceiling fans and there were big closets. The kitchen is nice with new appliances, and there are washer and dryer hookups too. (more…)

Training to Be a Better Swimmer

To me, there is no such thing as being the best. If you are the best, then what is the drive that keeps you going? Sure, there are people who win Olympic golds, the Lombardi trophy, or first place in a number of other contests, but they don’t stay there. Someone always comes along and takes their place. I want to be right up there though, and I knew that I had a much better shot at that with the Denver strength and conditioning coach that has been helping me.

I can practice for hours every day, eat the right foods, and do everything right, and I am still going to not do everything right. (more…)

Moving to a Better Apartment and Still Paying the Same Amount of Rent

Moving has never been easy for me. I get used to a place, and I will stick around even if it is not a nice place to live. We lived in an old apartment building that had seen better days. We had no idea that the amount we were paying for our lease was enough to rent a much nicer apartment somewhere else. We discovered this when we started looking for the best apartments in Forestville to rent. We actually found a gated access apartment complex at the Parkland Village Apartments that did not cost any more than what we were already paying for rent.

The apartment we got is bigger, newer, cleaner and has everything we want. There is a playground for our child, and now she has her own room. Back where we were at, she was using the dining room as her room. She is so excited to now have her own bedroom with a door instead of a curtain. (more…)

It Feels Like I’ve Lived Here Forever

I live by myself, but I still wanted to look at 2 bedroom apartments in Shawnee KS. There are just too many reasons why a two bedroom apartment is a good investment for a single person. Some can use it for a guest room, while others may turn it into a home office. For me, it was to serve a different purpose. I love to do craft projects so much that I wanted a room just for all of my craft things. When I saw the two bedroom units at Shawnee Station, I knew that it would be perfect for what I wanted.
