    And I Hate It

    I sit here writing this at 4:40 am after having spent the last two hours listing to my neighbors' party. They've been carrying on all night without regardĀ for how loud they are nor how many people they are disturbing. I went over and talked to them a few minutes ago and asked...

    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...

    Have For Nearly 8 Years...

    We're hoping to get a house, we even have a house fund started now. It's just so hard. Only because neither of us is motivated...soon, hopefully we won't be apartment dwellers anymore...

    Apartment Living

    My husband and I moved back into an apartment this February. We haven't lived in apartments in years. We lived in these same apartments way back when our kids were alot younger. Back then they were pretty new to the area, we lived upstairs. Fortunately, we are living downstairs...

    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...

    Apartment Life: Pros And Cons (Mostly Cons)

    Ahhh apartment life. Why am I here in an apartment after owning a house? Well, my husband's business crashed and here we are. Right back where we started - with a daughter, now, 2 cats and gerbils (shhhh..the animals aren't really allowed). And it sucks...kind of.....so...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Inner City Living

    I live in a one bedroom apartment close to the city. I rarely use my car and rely on public transport or walking to get around. I am close to lots of great restaurants and bars and I am loving the lifestyle. I am never alone as I share with 96 other apartments although I haven't...

    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

    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.

    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

    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...

    Take a Look

    Insanity

    I live in a small complex of 'cookie-cutter' apartments. I don't mind my closet-sized apartment much except when my neighbors breathe. I can hear them ****, walk, shower, vaccum, and saw pipes at seven in the morning. Also, when i'm up late I can hear people running through the...

    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.

    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.

    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
