I Wanted to Live on My Own

Posted on

I needed to find an apartment for rent in Salt Lake City pretty fast. I was living with a roommate, but we had a disagreement on a few things. I knew that I could continue to stay there, but our lifestyles were just too different for either of us to continue to be happy with the situation. I knew that it would be best for me to leave, because I just wanted to find a nice one bedroom apartment where I could live on my own. I had no need for the two bedrooms in the apartment we shared, and she told me that she would be able to easily find a new roommate.

We did not part on bad terms, but I know we were both relieved when I was able to find a really nice apartment that had available openings for the following month. It did not have the swimming pool or cafe that the other apartment had, but I never used those anyway. I was always more concerned about what is inside the apartment since that is where I spend the majority of my time. Everything I truly wanted is included with this apartment, and the price is actually lower than what I had been paying for my share in the other one.

I have my own washer and dryer, and the closets are huge. I have a balcony that I sit on just about every night to read a book. The ceilings are really high too, which is something I have always liked. I am even allowed to have pets at this apartment, and I am thinking about getting a couple of cats to keep me company. Since moving, I am a lot happier, and I imagine my former roommate is too. I know that I will never have another roommate though until I am married!
