So Happy to Be in Our New Apartment

We were looking for a nice apartment to move to in Las Vegas. I am a swimmer and need access to a pool every day. I’m not a fair weather swimmer. I will swim in the rain and on the cool days in Nevada. I do it for exercise. My wife was looking at a website to find an apartment that has a nice swimming pool. She found a place that actually has two pools. That piqued my interest right away. Two meant that there would be less crowding. Maybe I would not have to get up before daylight to swim any longer.

When we took a tour of the apartments, we really liked the kitchen. (more…)

Having Our Own Quiet Apartment in a City That Has a Tourist Season

We picked a place that was nice weather for most of the year. If you want to live close to the water, you do have to put up with a hurricane season. However, South Carolina is not as bad as states along the Gulf. We have been here for a long time now and have not had any problems. I remember when we were first looking for an apartment in North Charleston SC. We were used to big cities, and even though North Charleston is the third-largest city in South Carolina, it still had that hometown feel to it. There are only about a 100,000 people here, and that is far less than where we moved from. We are able to enjoy city living along with that rural southern charm.

Our goal was to have a place close to the ocean, and that is what we got. (more…)

We Needed the Fiber-Optic Internet Available at These Midtown Atlanta Apartments

I work at home and just upgraded my client list. That required another investment in technology. I operate on a slim margin to undercut competitors as I establish myself, so I lease server equipment and run it from home. I need the computing power and gigabit Internet speeds. I got a great price on hardware leasing, but I needed Google fiber Internet speeds in Atlanta. My wife found us apartments at The Pad on Harvard that have fiber-optic Internet service. We rented a two bedroom apartment so I could have one room for an office and the equipment. Not having to rent a commercial space for the tools I need for work is really nice.

I have a desk with several monitors. They attach to movable booms that support them. (more…)
