I wanted to find a large one bedroom apartment. Even though it is just me, I still wanted a lot of space. I have lived in studio apartments ever since I graduated from college, and I was frankly getting sick of such a tiny living space. I would click here and there every time I thought I might find something better, but nothing ever came of those searches. That is why it was not a hardship for me when I found out that my boss wanted me to relocate to Tallahassee. Even though it was over 100 miles away, was so ready for this fresh start.
I knew that I would probably have better luck finding something more to my taste since Tallahassee is so much bigger than where I was moving from. (more…)
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 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…)
