The last apartment I lived in was decent. The apartment itself was clean and fairly modern. It did not have laundry hookups, but it did have a community laundromat that was not too bad. There was a pool, but it was small, which often meant it was crowded. It was okay, but I knew that I could do better. I did a search online for apartments in Dallas uptown and came across one that was just too nice to even fathom. I knew that I wanted to live there, but there was no way I could swing the rent and utilities on my own.
That is when I contacted my sister and told her to look at the website. I stayed on the phone with her when she did, and she asked me if I was thinking what she was thinking. That made me smile, because I knew then that she was thinking we should become roommates. There was a two bedroom apartment with two baths that is larger than both of our apartments combined, and the rent is not much more than what she was paying at her old apartment. That meant that we would be able to split the rent and live in a much nicer place together.
The amenities is what I really liked. The swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous, as it is one of those infinity pools. There are fire pits all over the place too. And, when I say all over, I really mean that. There are some here and there, but there are more on the rooftops too that any of us can use! That has become one of my favorite spots to just hang out and get to know others, and I have made some great friends this way. Living here is definitely much better, and my sister feels the same way!
