Finding Contentment with What We Have


Scoring a place in the Water Ford Creek Apartments has been a life saver for me. School had just ended and I suddenly found myself without a place to live! I mean, it’s not like this was going to be the first time that I had been forced to crash in my car for a while but it’s not the optimal choice to make – just imagine trying to sleep in the most uncomfortable place you can imagine; like the back of a Volkswagen! There’s just no way to do it without something like a van to give you enough space.

So the very first place that I decided to try and snag an apartment from was open! In this town that’s almost impossible, especially when you’re as close as campus as I have been looking. There are only three separate criteria that I have when looking for a non-dorm apartment: animals must be allowed, the rent has to be reasonable and it has to be a place that isn’t going to force me to get a car. There’s no way that I cam going to invest in such a money sink like a vehicle at this point in time.

However, I don’t mind an apartment that is close enough to the bus line where I can use the bus most of the time. At least with the work that I do is flexible enough where I can work from home or even from the coffee shops around time. I don’t have to trap myself in a job that requires a car – I would go way, way broke if that were the case! Then again, if the job paid well enough then I would definitely consider getting a car of my own. Until then, I’ll be content with what I have instead of what I don’t have.
