The Perfect Living Arrangements for Us

My friend and I decided to get an apartment together for at least a few years so we could each put a huge dent in our student aid loans. We have opposite shifts and days off, so we knew that we would rarely be at the apartment at the same time, which we both knew would keep us friends since both of us have strong personalities. We each started looking at two bedroom apartments for North Charleston. One of the requirements was that we needed two bathrooms, because there was no way I was sharing a bathroom with a guy friend and he felt the same way about sharing a bathroom with a girl.

We found the perfect apartment at Edgewater Plantation. When he showed me the floor plan for it, I knew that it was the one, even without going there in person yet to see it with my own eyes.

If you get weary of your old place, just move when your lease is up.

I had grown weary with my old place, and I wanted to move to a bigger space. I wanted to have an office at home, and a two bedroom place would let me be able to telecommute three days per week at my job.

An Apartment is Waiting for Me

I started looking at apartments near Towson not that long ago. I don’t have to move there for another month, but I did not want to wait until the last minute to start looking for a new apartment. I had no idea if it would take me a day or three months to find a place that I liked well enough to make my new home, at least for the next year or so. I decided the best way to do this was just start looking at the different websites for the various apartment complexes in the area, and then decide which ones had openings and then apply.

It did not take me long to know that I wanted to live at Rodgers Forge in Towson, mainly because of how nice the floor plans are for the different apartments. Continue reading An Apartment is Waiting for Me
