Erica Romeo's Profile
|Display Name:||Erica Romeo|
I wish it wasn't true, but I move almost every single year. I have lived in other states, other cities other towns. I move closer to work, closer to public transportation, closer to my budget. I move because I don't like what I have, because i like what I see and because I am bored with my surroundings. i never fix what I have--I don't even paint. Two years ago, my husband and I moved into a small college town so I could go to school in a program I didn't even get to apply to (my Dad got sick). The apartment I loved for being tiny and charming and wonderfully weird (the kitchen is so much a part of the living room you can't help but talk to the cook, and we are across the street from where the Derby Girls play in town) quickly began to grate on my husband. He got a new job, and has the farthest possible commute from it. The closest grocery is Walmart. And the on-site-only-for-us management turned out to be the deadbeat Dad of maintenance--we now have a roach infestation to rival most entemologists. A year ago, I talked my husband into a re-marriage to our apartment: break the move-every-year cycle, and put the moving money into the problems we have. Paint, fix, repair ourselves, and make management take responsibility for the apartments around us, so the bug problem will really get fixed once and for all.
