    Take a Look

     Today I get to wonder if my apartment is one which will be used by my complex for assessment.  The tax assessor is supposed to inspect apartment complexes in order to determine the next year's rate for the management. I had someone look in once. At least I was home...

    Quiet Sex

    And it sucks. Too many people. I live in a lower income apartment, to make it worse, so there are vandals and drug dealers. But worst of all, I can't scream during sex. Last time I did, the neighbors banged on the ceiling and yelled "Whoo-hoo!" Now I'm self-conscious...

    Bought A House!!

    After 27 1/2 years I'm moving out of the apartment! Man, I never knew I had so much junk. And I never knew having a house would mean so much work. But I love it. I will miss listening to my neighbors through the walls. I won't miss smelling their cooking.

    Love It!

    So far I have lived in a three story apartment and love it! I used to live in a older house where you listened to the other neighbors music but here in a apartment it's a lot better. You get to meet people, If something happens mantience is there so overall It's great! Inbloom

    Not Enough Room.

    My boyfriend and I live in an apartment. We have lived in a few different apartments in the past year and a half. Once we had an apartment in a house which was much bigger than what we have now, but it wasn't in a very nice neighborhood. Now, we pay too much for too little space...

    Bad Luck With Apartments

      Ever since I moved to U.S.A I had problems with my apartments. The first one I moved into was in San Jose California, and it wasn't that bad at first. I had a 700 sf apartment that cost 2000 which I thought was a little high but it was normal for the area. I guess they...

    ...and Don't Like It X.x

    I don't particularly enjoy apartments. They're functional, but either too small, not private enough, or some other problem with it. In this one, it's the landlady. She's a jerk. x.x

    My (always noisy) neighbors upstairs decided to

    get completely wasted tonight. Lots of running and yelling.... Also lots of falling. So far it's 2:00 AM and been going on since 10:00. I would say something to them but, ya know, drunk people don't tend to respond well to criticism. Maybe I should just record them being loud...

    And I hate it too, we use to have several men

    below us that would bang on the walls a few days or sometimes every night. Other days they would slam the door so hard that it shook our apartment. I couldn't stand them, but every time I saw them I would say to them "hello" aka F you greeting. When they finally left, I was...

    Getting Used to It Again

    The first time I lived in an apartment, I learned some valuable lessons: - If you live on the ground floor, people WILL try to look in your windows. At 3 in the morning. - And if you live on the ground floor, your upstairs neighbors will sound like they live in--and frequently...

    Good Enough For Me

    Sometimes I wish I owned my own home so I could own land to grow a garden on and build a treehouse on, but then I think about how that's really more of a "want" than a "need", and I remind myself that an apartment is just fine for me for now.

    I have a question about what I can do about my

    downstairs neighbor. I can hear him master-bating multiple times a week. And it's not just me, my boyfriend and our roommate can also hear him! Can I call the cops on him for this kind of disturbance? For one, it's annoying because I can hear it a lot, even over my tv which is...

    At first it was great to live in an apartment but now that I have a young child it seems to be a burden living here. I hope to buy a house soon so that my son can play in the yard.

    CAN'T Wait to Get a House!

    Don't get me wrong, apartments are nice for some things, and certainly some stages of life. They are nice for free utilities, I've always had free heat and water. I got lucky with this apartment and I have central air (I think that's what it's called. Basically I don't have that...

    I Don't Now Why Anyone Would Think This Is Special

    If you're under 30 it's simply the only option you have. It's not like a bank would give me a mortgage for a house, I don't even have a living parent to co-sign, not that Dad would have when he was alive, he wouldn't co-sign on anything with me

    Not a Big Building

    I live in a old house of stone, renewed and separated in several apartments. So it's not a "jail building". I feel ok there, but i'd like to move. I don't know if I will, that depends on, well, how life is going to sway.
