While I am making goals of what I want in a permanent home which I hope will be a duplex ( not an apartment I HATE tenants) or rent a house I in the meantime need to learn to navigate around this small town & let me tell you it is remote.
You can stand on the corner & see nothing but road which circles around the water & houses which is nice but it makes it hard to get your baring’s. I was finally able to find where to catch the bus on this sprawling campus with the misguided directions from one of the other residents ( real confusing). It’s very nice here. So far I’m not bored at all. I need a few books to read. There is a library here but nothing that interests me. Everyone is into this Dean Kootnz. I like Patricia Highsmith. Right now I’m in my room, I’m not in the mood to socialize much how it is here where I am there are 3 tv rooms community for both men & women then one tv room just for the women. I never like to go into the community room with the men. Why? Don’t trust them. And I don’t feel safe. Now the one that’s for the women it is usually taken over by one of the senior residents who loves Law & Order SVU. The show is good but I can’t stomach it all the time. Then after that goes off the senior resident I’ll call her Rhonda likes to watch MSNBC The Rachel Maddow show again I ain’t feeling the politics. So I stay here. I call my Mom, things aren’t going to well. Her refrigerator is on the fritz! Oh well could be worse. I’m about a month smoke free & I have my nicotine gum. Oh how I want some juice right now! All that’s available are pop machines I’m avoiding pop cause I want to lose weight. Tomorrow is when I will venture out to town to pay a bill…….I owe late fees on my rent which sucks but oh well at least I got help with the rent for the last month at my now former apartment which I’m so glad to be leaving from. The landlord who is a really nice woman won’t even penalize me for the remaining months left on my lease which I still had a few months to go.
If anyone has any suggestions on what mistakes I can do to avoid moving into another ghetto place, then I’m open to them. This time around I really want to move into a quiet house? No partiers, or a duplex. Then hardest part about moving anywhere are the neighbors! I don’t like to live next door to drug addicts , partiers, domestic violent spouses, or anyone that’s not peaceful. I want to avoid that! This incident that happened last month (see my blog Neighbor from hell) was the 2nd time a traumatic experience like it happened since 2008 at another apartment. That concerns me. I don’t even like it when people smoke pot. I have zero tolerance for any of that nonsense. It’s for that reason I need to live in a quiet area. Please keep me in your prayers. I’ve had housing problems for YEARS! Lived in several places. I only liked one which was a rented home in a suburb of Bellevue Wa. Had to move because the owners of the property sold it & gave us tenants 4 weeks to move. After that? it was one awful dump after another with the same caliber of people.
