When I first started thinking about looking at apartments in Oceanside, I had mixed feelings. On the one hand, I was pretty excited because it was going to be my first apartment as well as the first time I had ever been on my own. That is why I had the mixed feelings, because that is also pretty scary, knowing that the security net is still going to be there but just further away now. The excitement was the prevalent emotion though, especially when I put the deposit down on the apartment that I was approved for.
It is a ground floor apartment, and it has everything that I need. By that, I mean that it has a large bedroom, the largest walk in closet I have ever seen, and a really nice kitchen. There is even a room off the kitchen that has a washer and dryer, which makes me really happy. I used to do laundry at the laundromat when I lived in the dorm, and I honestly thought that I would end up having to do that again. Having my own laundry room right in the apartment is a huge bonus for me.
The complex has a lot of other things going for it too. I love the swimming pool, and I am usually out there several times a week. The people who also live here are really nice, and I have met some great people here. It is located in a great area too. It does not take me long to get to anywhere I need to go, including work. Yeah, I was scared a bit to move out on my own, but I am really happy that I did because I am having so much fun here. It is a lot of responsibility, but it is a lot of fun times too!
