The most challenging thing about residing in an apartment building was getting used to the walls being incredibly thin! I grew up in a place out in the country with all of my siblings, as well as we were as loud as well as boisterous! I lived in that dwelling until I was twenty years old, at which point I moved into the city with an acquaintance so I could be closer to my school. It was frustrating to not only have to carry all of my laundry up as well as down 3 flights of stairs to wash my clothes, but to also make sure I had at least enough money in quarters! Still, as I mentioned earlier, the most difficult change was learning to keep it down. I could clearly hear the conversation the neighbors were having on the other side of the wall, which was enough to make myself and others feel there was just a huge sheet of paper between us. What’s worse was how terribly loud the heating as well as a/c appliances were in those apartments! There were times where I’d be sound asleep, only to be so startled by the a/c appliance turning on that I practically leapt out of bed! On the other side of the wall, our neighbors would run their a/c system from dusk until dawn, so it sounded like I was trying to sleep in a boxcar! It was so aggravating to myself and others that these heating as well as a/c appliances were so noisy, yet they only kept the dwelling comfortable as long as it wasn’t hotter than eighty degrees or below freezing outside. I don’t miss residing in that cheap apartment, as well as those memories only make me prefer my new dwelling that much more! Especially since our Heating as well as Air Conditioning appliance is merely a year old, so it’s still like new as well as works like a charm.
