Apartment Hunting…

Remember when you were younger and could not wait for the day you’d have your own place? Decorate it the way you want to, cook whatever you want for dinner, eat on the couch, play your favorite music all day long, etc.  Then that day came and you did not realize how frustrating finding the “perfect” place would be.  All the applications you have to fill out, the hopes of being the first one processed so you can get your “perfect” place.  Ugh Ugh UGH!  Making sure they are pet friendly (if you are a pet owner), that there is a coffee shop nearby, grocery store not too far and all those special perks we all love to have.  You search craigslist, westside rentals, the rental girl, pad mapper and so many other sites to find that “perfect” place.  We all know how time consuming and stressful it is but the best part about the search is the move into that new place.  The big smile you have on your face when you put down your last box, the relief, pleasure and outcome you get from working so hard to find this “perfect” place.  The joy of being in your new HOME!  The dinners you will cook, the music you will blare, the neighbors you will meet, the new neighborhood that you are now a part of.  Oh apartment hunting, how I loath you but love you at the same time. Happy Hunting and Cheers when you find that “perfect” place!
