When my brother kept telling me to move to Florida, I knew there was no way I could afford it. He made me a deal. He said if he could find a nice place for me to live that was cheaper than where I was living at the time, would I at least consider it? Of course I said yes to that, because I did want to be closer to where he and his family live. I had looked at the best apartments in Deland Florida online before though, and I knew that I would not be able to afford to live there.

That is where I was wrong though. My brother told me it did not take him long to find a nice apartment that is just about ten minutes from his house. Considering we were 12 hours apart at that time, 10 minutes seemed wonderful. He sent me the link so I could see the apartment, and I was really impressed with what I saw. Not only is the apartment about 200 dollars cheaper than what I was paying in rent when he showed me, but the area it is in is really nice too.

He went over and looked at the apartment in person, and he sent me a video of it. I honestly don’t know if I was expecting it to be as nice as what the pictures were on the website, but it was everything that I could hope for. It did not take long for me to get everything packed up once my application was accepted at the new apartment in Deland, and my brother actually flew up to help me drive down with a moving truck. It feels so good to be this close to the only family I have left in the world, and I am glad he was so pushy about this!
