Living on Our Own is Great

My best friend and I had been talking about looking at apartments for Bluffdale UT for a while now. We had both been living with our parents in the same town, but we started feeling that tug for some independence. We knew that it would be better to get a place together, because truth be told, it was a little scary to strike out on our own. We gave each other the courage that we needed though, and we finally decided to just take the plunge. We knew that we wanted to live in Bluffdale, and we also knew that we wanted an apartment.

It would be easier than renting a house for so many reasons. First, there is the maintenance to consider. If something were to happen to anything, neither of us really know how to fix it. We can change a light bulb, but we don’t know how to fix a noise in the heater or a dishwasher that stops working. Living in an apartment means that there will be a maintenance person who handles all of that. Also, neither of us are really keen on doing yard work, which is a necessary evil if you rent a house.

No, we knew that we were lazy in some areas, so living in a place where we would not have to mow the grass or haul garbage cans to the end of the driveway was definitely in our best interest. We were able to find a nice two bedroom unit, and we were extremely lucky for it to be where it is because our next door neighbors are quickly becoming an important part of our lives too. Our apartment is large, so the four of us, and sometimes more, often hang out there after work. We knew living on our own would be fun, but we had no idea it would be this nice!
