I am the type of person that does not really like living in the same apartment from one year to the next, and I have actually never lived in the same apartment for two years. I have lived at the same apartment complex for more than one year, but not in the same room, and not in consecutive years. I want to find apartments in Shawnee, because I am going to be moving out of this current apartment at the end of my lease, which is only a few months away.
I want to make sure that I have time to find an apartment that I will like, and it is always a disaster waiting to happen when you wait until the last minute to find an apartment. I have done that before, more than once, and it was not a very good situation. Last time I did so, I had not looked for apartment sooner, as I did not know for sure if I was going to be able to attend college the following semester. As a result, I had very few options that I could afford.
Well, actually, I only had one choice, and as it turned out, I ended up moving into an apartment that was infested with German cockroaches. I learned a lot about cockroaches that year, but it was a living nightmare. I think that the infestation may have extended across a lot of the building, because no matter what I did, I could not get rid of them. I spent days on my hands and knees, searching every crevice and crack I could find and removing and destroying egg sacks, as well as live cockroaches when I found them. For awhile, I thought I had gotten the problem under control, but I never actually managed to do so.
