I’m proud of our modern apartment since it’s the first apartment where I’ve been 100% financially independent from our parents.
It has been a year since I graduated college, plus in the time since I’ve been slowly saving the cash to transfer out on our own. Now that afternoon has finally arrived, I guess more self-sufficient than I ever have before. It’s a good feeling knowing that I’ve reached this threshold in our life at last. Still, it’s not without its challenges. I have to stick to a fiercely strict budget, otherwise I’ll run out of cash when bills are due. During the first few months of independence, sticking to our budget was a battle. But with time, I started to adjust to our modern situation. Thankfully I even started putting aside a small amount of cash each month for emergencies. That was a smart method because not long afterward our window air conditioner in our apartment quit working. Since I didn’t buy this equipment plus had little experience with heating plus cooling, I feared the worst. I started to wonder if it would cost $600 or $760 for a modern cooling unit, although I had overestimated the cost of a window air conditioner. I found one at the local supercenter for just $300 before taxes. I was amazed that you could find a window air conditioner so particularly plus well within our personal budget. The hardest section was installing the modern machine, although I spent an hour on YouTube enjoying tutorials on window air conditioner upgrade. Once I was finished, I had a brand modern air conditioner installed with ondemand chilly air.
