Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 56 People

    Definitely a day I need to vent - So my bf and I moved into our "garden" apartment in December. It is a new renovation, however, there was a previous tenant who started to move in, but for some reason couldn't stay. He hadn't fully moved in, but had moved a couch, a bed, and a...

    Cute

    My apartment that I'm renting temporarily is cute, small but cozy! The community is very nice, with the fountain and it's quite quiet, except for teenagers gathering in front of my window sometimes, but then I either tell them to shut up or call the police, which always works...

    For Now Anyway

    it's nice, a perfect size for my daughter and me :)  course, she's accumulated many more toys than she needs, so i'm constantly picking them up and trying to organize a little better b/c of the small space.  but it works for us :)  i like it alot :)

    I rent a place, in a nice complex that's close to my kids so I can see them often. I am a bit of a minimalist and don't need much.  I love that it has a southern exposure and gets bright warm sun all winter long.  My neighbors are pretty quite and respectful so for right now I...
