I Feel Like I Am at Home

When I was living at home with my parents, the one thing that kept me going was knowing that I was going to be on my own one day. I did not have the best childhood, but I did not let that deter me from my dreams. Instead, it fueled them. I went to college on a full scholarship, and I was able to make it on my own with a work study program to help me. After graduating, I looked at Simpsonville apartments on my computer after accepting a job at a local company there.

I did not want to live in the same town as my parents, but I also did not want to live halfway across the country either. I was convinced that I could mend some of the broken fences, so living in Simpsonville was the perfect solution since it is less than 30 minutes from their house. That gave me my independence but also a lifeline when I finally decide to try and have a relationship with them again. Right now, I am just focused on moving forward with my dreams though, and that is easy enough to do right here in Simpsonville.

My apartment has just one bedroom and one bath, but I don’t need anything bigger than that. It has a really nice kitchen with more cupboard space than I could possibly use on my own. It is nice to have too much rather than too little though. I even have storage off of my patio, which has really come in handy since I am active in different sports. Being able to keep my sports gear there means my apartment is not cluttered up like my college room was. i don’t know how long I will be here, but I hope that is for a while because for the first time ever, I feel like I am at home.
