You do not have stay in one place all your life. My parents always told me that it is important to do that. They always felt that putting down roots and not moving around was the smartest thing to do. But I wanted to spread my wings and try and do new things. I decided to check out apartments for Toledo Ohio because I have a friend living there. It is also not too far from where my parents and my siblings live, so I knew I could easily come home on the weekends.
I decided to choose the Toledo area because of all the fun things there are to do there. I had been living in a much smaller city. Living in a sleep, small town does have advantages, but I often found myself needing to travel to other cities to do some of the fun things that I like to do. I wanted to have the luxury of just waking up in the morning on a weekend and showing up at the zoo or a nice art museum. Neither of those things are located where my parents live, and honestly, there is not much else there either.
The first week that I moved in, my dad and my brother helped me to get everything moved in. We were able to do it all within 3 trips by packing things into my dad’s small car. I loved spending the time with both of them. And then, when the weekend came, my mom and sister showed up and they helped me unpack everything and start decorating. It really helped save me a lot of time. And I had landed a new job, so everyone knew how important it was for me to be ready for my first day of work. It is nice to change things up.
