Apartment Living

I really enjoy the place I live now. My favorite part about it is that it's not disgusting. So many places are just pretty gross. The hallways smell like weird, the carpet is janky. I've lived in a place with carpet in the bathroom and kitchen. Now that's just ridiculous and nasty. Too many people living in apartments that are too small so they stay outside most of the time, being awful. Places with dumpster watchers. Which are residents with nothing better to do but watch what you're putting into the dumpster all the live long day. I once got a noise complaint because "They say you're showing at midnight" Well, god forbid! I seriously got written up for showering too late for my neighbors liking.

Not anymore! My bathroom and kitchen have tile! The hallways are without scent. I have never gotten my underpants stolen out of the laundry room. There always seems to be something going on in my neighborhood. THERE'S AN ELEVATOR! Which is huge after having to walk up 3 flights of stairs at other apartments. So, I'm pretty freaking fancy. There's the occasional crazy note but I rather enjoy those.

Here is one of the worst apartments I lived in. NOT THE WORST EXPERIENCE (that involved a roommate and someone being hauled off to jail) but the worst apartment. My ceiling fell in one night. Water all over my bed, my art table, my everything. It just fell in along the entire side of the apartment. I watched it fall. It was horrifying. The building manager told me, upon seeing it all, that it must have been doing this for a long time. Because some people let water leak all over their belongings apparently. For kicks. I'm not one of those people. So behold...my second apartment.
