When my husband and I separated, I knew that we were definitely getting a divorce. We just wanted entirely different things in our lives, and neither of us was willing to compromise. I am just glad that even though we are getting a divorce, it is going to be an amicable one. We decided that he would keep the apartment we had been living in because it was really close to his work. I started looking at studio apartments in Tampa FL, and I was able to find the one that I wanted as soon as I looked at The Marq Highland Park.
I knew that I would not need anything more than a studio apartment because I am on the go so much with my job. There may be weeks where I spend all seven nights at my apartment, but other weeks may not see me there at all if I am sent on assignment somewhere. I just needed a place to rest my head between assignments, and the studio I found in Westchase is perfect for that. It is small, but that is what I want. The kitchen, dining room and living room are all combined. The bathroom is down the hall, and the bedroom is right across from it.
It actually looks more like a one bedroom apartment than a studio apartment, but I really liked the floor plan. I also liked the location because it put me closer to my office as well. I am not going to have to fight traffic like I have in the past, and it will feel good to go home from work and be resting on my couch within 10 minutes rather than the 30 that it used to take. Life has thrown me a curve ball for sure, but I am not going to let that get me down.
My best friend and I decided to move to downtown Denver together. We were both living at home with our folks, but we have great jobs in the heart of Denver. We would sometimes carpool together, which made the 45 minute commute a lot more bearable. We started talking about how much easier it would be if we just had apartments in downtown Denver, and that is when we decided to get serious about finding one. We wanted one that would be central to both of our jobs, and we also wanted one that was going to have all of the fancy amenities that we had only seen in movies.
We wanted the nice pool and the lounge area so we could have fun meeting the other people in the complex too, and we also wanted to have a really nice apartment that had a lot of space. Neither of us are party girls, but we do enjoy a nice social life nonetheless. We wanted to be able to entertain in our apartment if we wanted to have a dinner party or just a girls night in watching chick flicks and eating pizza.
It took us maybe five minutes to find the apartment that we wanted to rent. We knew that we wanted to have separate bedrooms, and we each wanted our own bathroom too. Finding an apartment that had that as well as a half bath for guests is just perfect. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the living room, which is amazingly huge. We both fell in love with the floor plan as soon as we saw it, and I was thrilled when I found out that our application was accepted. We cannot move in for a couple of months, but that just gives us more time to get everything ready!
