Through lots of searching and help from family and friends, I was able to find one of the apartments in Alamo Heights area. I expected my apartment search to be a simple job that would only take me a couple of days as the most to do, but things got a lot more complicated than I anticipated. I quickly learned that I had a lot to look for in the perfect apartment that would suit my needs and fit within my budget. I didn’t just look at the apartment either. I had to look at the neighborhood where the apartment was, the kinds of stores that were in the surrounding areas, and even the local school.
Although everyone was eager to help me find the apartment, they were reluctant to actually help me move my items into the apartment. I’ve often heard people say that you should always know a friend who has a truck, just in case you need to move something. Unfortunately for me, I don’t know anyone who has a truck, so I had to rent one to move my items to the apartment. Everyone either had to work the day that I was moving, or had prior engagements to take care off that prevented them from helping. I was moving my stuff on a Saturday, so I found it weird that some people had to come in to work, but I can’t really prove that they weren’t at work, so it’s neither here nor there.
I moved all of the boxes and furniture by myself, and unpacked everything. It’s a good thing that I didn’t bring anything that was really heavy with me, or I would still be trying to move into the apartment. The apartment is great, but there is one thing missing. I think I need to get a pet in here.
