Life Update: What Happened to LawToya?!

HEYYYYY! How you Doooin? *Wendy Williams voice*

So, I’m back from my blogging break. About 2 weeks ago I posted Life Throws Curveballs as I was frantically sobbing. I’m here to update you on what the heck happened.

As you may know, a few months ago I wrote about the apartment I signed for in Illinois. I was so excited about this place, everything was perfect! The appliances were new, the living room was bright & the location was amazing. When I initially visited, I filled out an application & paid an app fee. I was told by the leasing office that I was put on the list & would get an apartment assignment in June-July. Fast-forward to June 24th, I got an email stating that there were NO apartments available & I was essentially homeless. I WAS DEVASTATED! I tried my best to keep calm when I called the leasing office, but I did slip a few *kind* words into the conversation.

What the heck was I going to do? I live in Florida, I’m moving in a month, and I have nowhere to live. If you aren’t familiar with areas around large college’s, apartments near by go FAST. I signed a lease for the apartment I currently live in almost 8 months in advance. As I called apartment after apartment I began to lose hope, no one had openings. Finally, after about 25 phone calls I found one. I called the company asking for one apartment that was unfortunately unavailable, but after explaining my situation to the leasing agent she suggested another complex. I called them soon afer and THANK GOD, they had an apartment available.

Although I was excited, I was really nervous. Was I really about to sign a lease on an apartment I’d never visited? Yes, I had no choice. The leasing agent was the sweetest person ever, she offered to go into the apartment and take pictures of the space. She sent me 10 pictures from all different angles and I couldn’t thank her enough for her help.

I began to realize just how true it is that everything happens for a reason. The new apartment I signed for has so many things that other was lacking. I’m closer to my school, I’m getting a bigger space, the leasing agents are amazing, and I get faster internet (lol, so important).

When bad things happen in life, try to take a moment to think about the situation. Maybe I just wasnt meant to be there & this had to happen in order for me to realize it. Either way, I’m pleased with my new apartment & I can’t wait to move in! Thanks to everyone who sent me messages & wrote sweet comments, I appreciate every one of you. 😀
