Home Sweet Apartment.... Again?

So for those of you that read my post yesterday you will know that we are scrambling for a somewhat cheaper apartment. In my apartment hunting adventures yesterday I decided to check out my boyfriends old apartment because I knew it was cheaper rent and not that bad of a location. I remember when we first started dating and I would go visit him at this apartment and feel very comfortable. We would spend hours sitting on the couch while he showed me youtube videos of silly things and they were pretty neat!
I was able to find the apartment without using the gps. When I had called they had told me they have a newly renovated one bedroom. As I walked to the office I was reminded of how giddy I had felt walking up to his apartment when we were in the throws of blooming love. The price was do able and as she was walking me to the apartment I felt a sense of dejavu. As she approached the door I realized she was showing me the same exact apartment he used to live in. I honestly could not stop laughing at how weird it was. The place looked amazing they had completely redone the kitchen and the floors. I called my boyfriend directly after leaving and got him laughing as hard as I was.
Today I am going to turn in the applications and security deposit. Maybe this is what we needed all along. I am going to be going to school and about to be very busy and stressed so maybe this is just everything lining up so I can do that with as little of stress as possible.
In conclusion everything is working out exactly as it is supposed to.

Home Sweet Apartment

At some point in my mid twenties I found myself feeling entitled. Now I have been on my own since I was seventeen and life has always seemed to be a battle. In the last couple years I have found my life progressively getting better and even a bit easier. All of the hard work had seemed to be paying off. Then I found myself looking for apartments with my boyfriend and I was excited at the prospect of getting an apartment that was in a nice neighborhood, washer and dryer in unit and an ICE MAKER! First I found the most beautiful apartment with all of those things and not to mention a walk in closet and a huge kitchen. It was so perfect and I was so excited. When I went to apply for it the next day it was already scooped up. I was pretty devastated and started the entitled brat road. I even through a bit of a toddler fit.
Well I got over that as soon as I viewed the next fancy apartment that had all the other amenities plus A ROMAN STYLE BATHTUB!! Everything was going so perfect I paid the deposit, we had our move in date and then.... they wanted double the rent to be able to move in. Needless to say that was a lot of money. Double devastated. I found myself pissed at the world for not getting what I want. The world was out to get me and I deserved to have a nice apartment. I was so stuck on the material things and let it completely absorb me to the point of a pretty dark depression.
Today I am going to look at two apartments that have none of those features I was so excited about, Yes I am still a little salty about that part, but I know it will be alright. Does it kind of suck? yes. Will it be forever? No. I lost track of what is most important about getting this apartment. It is the first apartment I will be getting with the man I love. No matter where we live it will be home and we will make it wonderful. I can buy ice trays for a few more years and be just fine. My solution is to enjoy any place we live and make a real home for both of us no matter where we end up. So the conclusion of this post is we are not entitled to anything. If you want something you need to work for it and if it doesn't work out you just keep working at it.  Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to that 10%.
