There is a lot to be said about a man and his castle. I would like to own one. Not an old drafty stone structure with no glass in the windows, but rather the idea of the castle. You know what I am talking about. It is a place to hang your hat and hang a picture on the wall without being hassled. A place where you can have a family that includes your dog or cat. You can get that if you buy a home, but we were looking at apartments in Salt Lake City Utah. I was wondering if we could have all that we wanted in our own little castle and it be an apartment instead of buying a house.
We looked at an apartment for rent and was surprised that our castle criteria could be met in a modern way. Well, the moat of our castle is actually a fence and a gate, but that is just fine with us. The access is controlled in this gated community. That is a plus. more “A Man and His Castle is Still a Viable Option Today if You Know Where to Move”
I always heard that the luxury apartments in West Palm Beach FL were full of old people, because a lot go to that area when they retire. When I moved into the area, I learned that this was nothing but a myth. The area was filled with nothing but the same kind of young people that you would see on spring break. Maybe someone spread this misinformation around so that no one else would come to the area and they could have all of the young people to themselves. Either way, I’ve been having the time of my life in West Palm Beach.
When I first moved out here, I thought it was like moving into a rich neighborhood. I’m more used to lower income surroundings, so seeing so many rich people was like being among the elite. After a while, I realized that they were just normal people like me, only their bank accounts were bigger than mine. We enjoyed many of the same things, and most of them are pretty friendly. There are a few rude people who try to make things bad for everyone, but I had a couple of those in my old neighborhood too, so they don’t really bother me.
I went to a pool party at the apartments that was thrown by one of the residents as a birthday party. The pool was packed with people who had obviously been to the gym. It was almost like being at a photo shoot. I think I saw only a couple of people who were of average or husky build. There was one cute girl that I wanted to talk to, but I was a little too chicken to say something to her, so she came up to me, which was a first. Usually I’m the one that has to make the introduction, but she introduced herself to me and we had a long conversation. After some playing around in the pool, I got her number.
Initially I didn’t want to move into the apartments in New Haven, because I wanted to stay in my old neighborhood. I had my mind set on going to a local college, but after a scholarship offer, I began to reconsider. The scholarship made it possible for me to have new opportunities that I wouldn’t experience at the local college, and meet more people beyond the ones that I had become used to in my hometown. I packed my thins and headed to New Haven to start my college life.
The first semester of college has been way more difficult than anything I’ve done in high school. I came in, thinking that it would be a piece of cake, but the courses were much more intense. When I took my first exam and received a poor grade, I was shocked. more “The First Year of College”
