Yays and Nays

Things I will miss about this apartment once we move out into our own house:

  1. Relatively cheap rent;
  2. Not having to pay for utilities because they’re already included in the rent;
  3. The location, because I actually like Waterloo.

Things I won’t miss about this apartment once we move out into our own house:

  1. The Dirties across the hall who like to play crappy songs super loud;
  2. Stompy McStompenheimer upstairs;
  3. Either upstairs or downstairs neighbours who smoke in their bedroom and pass the smoke through the water control hole in the closet (don’t ask) into our bedroom;
  4. The crappy fridge shelf that keeps coming off;
  5. The heating system that we have no control of which keeps this apartment in summer temperatures, even in the dead of winter;
  6. Our bedroom slash storage combo;
  7. The big, ugly couch that comes with the apartment;
  8. Uneven shower temperature;
  9. The tiny kitchen/dining room;
  10. The boring white walls.

    I remember the feeling of going from “renter” to “owner”. Congrats.
