Luxury Apartments in Tampa Florida

Leave a comment

I remember living in my uncle's basement when I turned 18. It was close to the university I was attending. He lived a couple of states away from where I grew up. Dad suggested I give him a few bucks for rent and save a fortune on trying to rent an apartment close to campus. I was definitely not into the dorm thing. That was a few years ago. Probably more than a few actually. Now I have a place in Altis highland Park. It is a far cry from my uncle's basement. I have put in countless hours doing intern jobs and even flipped my share of burgers while I was in school. Now I have some things to show for it.

I did not want to wait until I had every loan paid off to get a nice place. I am saving for retirement and my bills are all paid on time. I drive a nice but affordable car, and I have a really nice apartment. You would think that I am paying a lot of money to rent it, but it is incredibly affordable compared to what I have paid to rent far less quality. One of my fraternity brothers has an apartment that I call a closet close to Wall Street. He pays way more than I do to rent his closet. I am so happy my job is down here in Tampa, Florida. I am getting a whole lot more apartment for my money than he is.

I save a fortune just not having to have an outside gym membership. I can work out here, swim here, enjoy the big park, and there is even a dog park if I decide to one day get a puppy. I could not do that right now with all the hours I put in at work. This place is top notch. I really like Florida living, and I really like my luxury apartment. I would not want to live anywhere else.

Seeing an Old Friend Online

Leave a comment

I love living out in the mountains of Colorado. There's a lot of snow, which makes it great for skiing, which I do a lot of during the year. I live in a fairly rural area where everyone in town knows everyone else. A close friend of mine lives a couple of states over in a big city, and I talk to him occasionally on the phone. He always wanted to video chat with me, but my poor Internet connection couldn't handle it. Once I got Hughesnet rural Internet in Colorado, my circumstances changed and I could finally video chat with him.

When I did my first video chat after getting a new Internet connection, my friend was surprised to see that I had grown a beard. When we used to hang out, I always had a clean shave, but over time, I got tired of shaving and buying razors. I just invested in an electric razor and now I only trim the edges of the beard and just let it grow out. I was surprised to see that my friend had shaved all of the hair off of his head. He told me that he was starting to go bald, and didn't want to have bald spots or patches in his hair, so he just got rid of all of it.

My friend and I had a pretty good laugh at the change in our looks. I told him that he looked like a famous bald boxer, and he told me that I looked like some kind of gruff mountain lumberjack. It was good to finally see my friend's face after so long. Maybe one day he can come to Colorado and do some skiing with me, or maybe I can visit him in the city and do some sight seeing.
