My life has improved after I moved out of a shared house with former high school friends.
We had all finished college at our respective schools and we all needed a place to stay after moving out of dormitories.
I don’t know whose idea it was, but someone suggested that we all find a house to share and split the rent equally in four ways. Since none of us had ever lived with one another, we didn’t have any clue what it would be like once we were all in a single house together for weeks and months at a time. Needless to say, it was a disaster. People kept trying to move their partners and significant others into the house, driving up the utilities in the process. I finally had enough and told them that I was moving out. I found an apartment closer to the city and now I am never looking back. Not only do I have peace and solitude, I also have access to more stores within walking distance than ever before. There are multiple grocery stores, half a dozen different restaurants, as well as three separate medical cannabis dispensaries. I became a medical cannabis patient about four years ago but I always had to get in my car if I wanted to get marijuana products quickly. Otherwise I paid the fee to get cannabis delivered right to my front door. But now that I can literally walk to three different cannabis dispensaries, I don’t have the need for cannabis delivery services anymore. Plus, it gives me an excuse to get outside and exercise for a little.
