I Needed an Apartment in Florida

Monday, August 28th, 2017

I grew up in a very rural area. When I say in the boonies, that really is what I mean. We had to travel nearly 30 minutes just to get to our school every day or to a store like Walmart. I knew I wanted more, and going off to college in Salt Lake City showed me that I definitely prefer city living over country living. After graduating, i was hired on as a teacher at a school outside of Tampa, Florida. I looked at the surrounding areas and knew that I wanted an apartment in Brandon FL because of everything I had read about the area.

I was able to find a nice apartment rather fast, but that is because there are so many apartment complexes there that are nice. I had looked at about a dozen of them, and I knew that I wanted to live at Overlook for a number of reasons. First, the location could not be more perfect. It will not take me long to get to my job. If there is one thing that I have learned to dislike since living in the country, it is a long commute. (more…)

I Had to Go Check on Mom

I got down here early this week and it was great to be home, but of course I had serious business to attend to. My mom had a pretty serious health scare and she is going to need some time to get back on her feet. I had thoughts about trying to get her to move up North with me or move in with my sister, but that is not really worth the effort. Instead we are going to arrange for in home care Hollywood FL She is already pretty feisty and told me not to bother ask her about the stuff that I am thinking about. It is not like I could not have guessed that. (more…)
