I Am Looking Forward to a New Start

I started looking at apartments in San Antonio even while I was married, because I knew that I had made a mistake in marrying someone I did not know that well. We thought we were in love after just a couple of months of dating, and we eloped during our third month of spending time together. Dating and living together are two completely different things, and I was able to see his true colors once I was living with him at his home. I knew that I had to get out, which is why I started looking at apartments.

I did not need anything big because it is just me. I know a lot of apartments will allow pets, but I didn’t even have a dog or cat. I was hoping that might change though because I knew that it would be a very long time before I even thought about dating again. So, I started looking for small one bedroom apartments in the town where I used to live. I didn’t even want to stay in the same state because I knew he would probably bother me a lot there, plus I am a Texas girl at heart.

When I came across the Niche apartments, I really liked everything that I saw. I will be able to get that cat or dog, or perhaps one of each, once I am ready to take on that responsibility. The apartments are really nice too, and everything I will need is either right there on the grounds or just a very short drive away. It feels really great getting a new start again, and I am not going to mess this opportunity up this time. Getting away was easy the way I did it, and I am now looking forward to all of my tomorrows again!

Getting a Taste of Home when I Want It is Nice

I left my country 30 years ago, and I thought I would spend the rest of my life not hearing much about it again, except for the times that I would hear from my parents through letters. That has changed now, and I am can keep up with keeping up to date with the state where I lived by reading about Taraba news online now. My parents and I are grateful for the ability. I say that my parents are grateful as well because they are now here with me after being away from them so long. Life is really good now.

When I left three decades ago, I wanted to see more of the world and what it had to offer me. I thought I would just travel for awhile, and had no idea that I would not be going back to my family. I met a lot of really good people, and at some point, I was offered a really good paying job. While the cost of living is higher here, the pay I would receive for accepting the job was more than enough money to live on well. It was also a lot more money than I could earn back home. I sent my parents a letter to let them know, and told them that I planned to stay for awhile.

Thanks to Internet and the ability to make phone calls more easily between countries, I have been able to keep up with how my family is doing rather easily. I had no idea that it would be so easy one day. I thought the only conversations we would have would be with letters for life. In telling my parents about my new country, they began expressing to me that they would love to come visit. I flew them out for that reason, and once here, they decided they would like to stay. I began working on the paperwork immediately and now they are here with me full time.
