I graduated from the hospitality program at UNLV a couple of months ago and it was looking like it was going to be pretty hard to find the job that I really wanted, but I had to move to Henderson to get a real chef’s job. It was not something that I was looking for, but a friend of mine called me up and told me to drive up there and interview with her head chef. The guy is really intense, but he gave me the job and so far it has been great. The apartments in henderson are less expensive than what I had been paying for in Las Vegas and I am making a lot more money than I was, so I have been coming out ahead all of the way around. The best thing is that my friend needed a new roommate and that is really the best way to go if you have one that you can get along with and one that you can trust to hold up her end of the deal.
So far the two of us have been working the same shifts, so we have been sharing a ride to work and back. The only problem is that we are working really late nights. We go to work at 9 PM and we get off right before they start to prep things for breakfast at five in the morning. Then we go home and sleep until after lunch. We have been laying by the pool in the afternoons and some times we play tennis. It is a really strange way to live your life, but I am getting used to it. In a couple of weeks they are going to move me to an early shift, so then it will be exactly the opposite.
I’ve discovered that living with roommates takes an entirely new skillset. This is my first time living with a roommate. After unsuccessfully finding apartments in Lowell MA for a single individual I decided that I would go for a house. I found an ad on Craigslist that someone had posted searching for a roommate to take over the top floor of a home that they own. Always eager to try out new experiences I thought it couldn’t be so bad and they seemed laid back enough. We met a couple of times before they agreed to let me move in and those meetings showed that we were going to get along.
Still. Continue reading Learning to Live with Other People
I am going to try to sell my house pretty soon, because we are going to be buying a new house, and it would be very helpful to go ahead and sell the current house. At least, I want to get it listed online as soon as possible. To make that happen, I am going to hire a real estate photographer in Nashville to take good pictures of the house, all around the property, and inside of the house.
Since I am listing the house for sale online and I want to make sure that it sells as quickly as possible, and for as much money, I feel the need to have the pictures taken of the house be made by a professional. That way I will know that they are good pictures, and the house will be sure to be shown off completely in the pictures that are posted with the listing to be put online.
I have some worries about selling the house, but I need to put them behind me, because I really do not have any basis for the worries. They are unreasonable and unfounded. The house is pretty great, and we did everything to make sure it was nice and fixed up prior to listing it for sale. So I really don’t see why we would even have any problem with trying to sell it. The only potential problem would be if there is just not enough people looking for houses in the area.
I don’t anticipate that to be a problem though, and so once I can have someone come over to take the pictures, I will be able to make my online listing. I am currently going over the details of the listing again, just to make sure that everything is right and nothing left out.
