I am a nurse, and I was offered a fantastic opportunity in Illinois. It did mean that I would need to leave behind my family and friends, but I also knew that it was just too good of an opportunity to pass up. It was only a three hour drive from where I was living before, so I knew that I would be able to go back home on weekends if the urge to see everyone hit often. After accepting the position, I started looking at different apartments near Schaumburg IL on my computer.
I wanted to find a nice place before actually getting there. I had already seen a few complexes that were close to where I would be working, so those are the ones I looked at first. When I saw the Village in the Park apartments, I knew that it was the place I wanted to call home. I loved everything about the area, and the prices were right too. I looked at the different floor plans to see which one would be best suited for me. There were one and two bedroom apartments, and I knew that I wanted one where I could have a guest room.
I have too many family members and friends who would visit me when I am not able to make it home, and I wanted them to be comfortable. With my new job, it was something that I would easily be able to afford as well. I also liked the idea of having two bathrooms. I am a very social person, so I knew that I would make new friends and invite them over. Having a private bathroom is just a nice perk in situations like that. Applying for the apartment was easy, and it did not take me long to move in once it was accepted. Now, I just have to wait to see what this next chapter in my life brings.
