I am in the middle of going to school, and living with roommates was becoming a problem. I take my schoolwork very seriously, while they spend a lot of time messing around and partying. I needed a place of my own quickly, and it needed to be affordable, too. One of my school counselors told me about Hernon Walk Apartments nearby, so I figured I would start looking there first.
I do not own a car, so it was important that I find a place that is on a bus line so that I can get to and from school, the store or anywhere else I need to go very easily. I own a cat, so I needed a pet-friendly place. I am also a young female, so a place that was safe is something that I have to keep in mind when living anywhere, too.
I spoke with the apartment manager at the place my school counselor told me about. I was a little worried about what the cost would be like, but was really surprised to learn that I could get a place for under $500 with one bedroom there. I thought I would be stuck with a studio apartment, but now I know differently. Best of all, they had two apartments available at that low price. I was paying that much just to live with roommates, so this was really good news to me. The apartments are also located near several bus stops.
I set up an appointment with apartment manager to look the place over. I fell in love with the place instantly. The complex is gated, which helped me feel right at home and secure. They allow pets and they even have a pond with ducks in it. The unit that I chose has a great view of the pond, so I put my application in right away because I knew my cat would love to sit in the window and watch the ducks. We have now been living here for a week, and I was right about the ducks and my pet!
