    Ahhh, I Remember Getting My First Apartment

    It was a studio, downtown, in a small city in NH. It was rather scummy, and definitely cheap. It was pretty sweet though, right across the street from a grocery store and next door to a video rental place as well.   Memories, share yours.....

    Impatient!!!

    I was the child who couldn't wait to get her license. That snuck out at night to hang out with her friends, and then chose a college away from home and away from supervision. I lived on campus for four years with one and sometimes three roommates. Then, I stayed in my cousin's...

    Junior Year

    We're allowed at my university to live off campus with someone other than our parents either our junior year or when we turn 21, whichever comes first.  I used to wonder why some people lived off campus...I thought, "Why would you want to drive to school every day if...

    Pay still is not bad, a full time job looks promising in the near future. There is an apartment upstairs from a hair salon in a nice neighborhood that I'm interested in. Basically I can't stay in my current living situation for much longer so if I can get a place I will... I...

    Yes, i do but not alone.

    My Own Place

    One day I would like to have my own place. I would like to be able to financially take care of myself, be able to pay my own rent, and have my own space. Maybe I'll have a roommate or two. Some female friends possibly, or my boyfriend living with me. It would be nice.

    Bi Polar Boyfriend...

    We moved into a house in May 2009, he stopped taking his medication for bi-polar. We were together, now we aren't. He is too nuts, I'm afraid for myself. I'm moving out, need my own place. Trying to save money but I want out as soon as possible.

    Then i can start T and i don't gotta think

    about others and all their crap they think about me and everything. Once in my place it'll be my world, but i got to find one that'll accept a cat and a lizard along with a location that's close to a Walmart or store sense i'll be on foot 90% of the time.

    Had my own apartment

    for eight years... it finally got flooded the last two years I was there. Then my mom took me in (I was 32 at the time)... and I let her... Not the best move for me, because now I'm out in the country living with her... and my sister and her kids. No more social life, no more...
