My spouse told me the best place for us to live would be in some Atlanta luxury apartments because that would allow us to live in the type of surroundings we have been used to, and we could then take our sweet time about looking for a home about a year or so later. I thought this was a fantastic idea. This made a lot more sense instead of racing there, then rushing to find a good place and not being happy with it over the long run. My wife is pretty smart about these things, so I also listen to her, and give her free rein to do a lot of things for us the way she wants to things.
I would say that I was pretty immature when I met my wife. Continue reading
It took me awhile to get hired on with a really good company in the area where I wanted to live. I had been scoping out apartments for rent in 30339 and I really liked the area. Sure, I could have chosen some other area, but I wanted to be near most of my family and friends. I wanted to be near the businesses that I typically frequent and have for years. And I figured it would be best to see if I could find a company in that same area that I could work at. I knew that it might be a long shot, but it never hurts to try. I knew that if I didnt find something in that exact area, I could find something close.
I do not like long commutes to and from work. When I grew up, both of my parents had to work in a city that was 3 cities away from our home. Continue reading
I am not picky when it comes to most things. If my boyfriend wants to take me out to eat, I’ll go anywhere. If a friend wants to see a movie, I’ll see one that just looks okay to me. However, when it came to finding my next apartment, I think I was the pickiest I have ever been in my entire life. I did not want to settle for something since I would be spending the majority of my non work time there. I did a search for apartments in Marietta to find out which apartments in my area were even accepting applicants.
Even with the really nice apartments, I know turnover is pretty common because people move on. Continue reading
When I started dating my boyfriend nearly ten months ago, I knew he was the one on our third date. He said all the right things and made me feel like I was the only thing that mattered, and he just gave me butterflies that still have not gone away. I suspected he felt the same way, and I knew that he did when he got down on one knee a few weeks ago to ask me to become his wife. Most girls want to plan their weddings at that moment, but I wanted to find the perfect apt for the two of us to share as soon as we said our I do’s. Continue reading
I was grumbling pretty much non-stop when we looked at our budget and saw that we could not swing owning our own home yet. We do not just jump into things. We were tapped out on what we could do with overtime, and our lease at our apartment was up. There was no way we were renewing it. We were wanting to move to one of the Alamo Heights apartments in San Antonio instead. I was not in the mood to be impressed since we were not going to realize our home ownership dream yet. However, I could not help it once we checked out the new apartments in person.
Pictures give you an idea, but then you have to visit to see and feel what a place is like. Having a friendly greeting from our new neighbors before we signed the lease was a real plus. I am kind of reserved about people, and I liked the people my wife and I met right away. The person showing us the apartment was really nice too. Continue reading
I am a member of a group that recreates all kinds of things for the public. We do wars, futuristic events, and everything in between. Some of it is based in reality, and some is purely imagination. We have a lot of fun with it, and the crowds that gather to watch our re-enactments really enjoy seeing history played out this way. Those are my favorite things to do, but that could be because of the airsoft guns that we just recently bought to help make it more realistic too.
We were using wooden replicas, but it was obvious they were not real guns at all. A small detail like that can really make all the difference between a person just watching a re-enactment or believing that they are actually witnessing something real. Because of the type of group that we are, we are allowed to purchase airsoft guns, which is really cool. They look like the real deal, and the selection we are able to choose from would make any gun enthusiast happy. Continue reading
