Everyone had told me that I was getting married too young. I wish I would have listened to them, because I would have avoided a huge mistake. I hate thinking of my marriage as that, but facts are facts. My ex and I were just not prepared to be married, least of all to one another. Thankfully, we did not have children, so we were the only two who were suffering through this. After I made my decision to leave him, I started looking at Bluffdale apartments for rent. I knew that he could have left the apartment that we had been calling home for our short marriage, but I just wanted a fresh start in all ways.
I also thought it would be nice to live closer to where I work. Looking at places in Bluffdale to live meant that I would be able to save at least 15 minutes or so each way on my commute. That might not seem like a lot but it does add up throughout the week! I did an online search for apartments in that area, and I was happy with the results that I was given.
It is really neat to be able to look at all aspects of an apartment online like this because it saves so much time. I was able to look at pictures of the apartments as well as floor plans for all the different ones. I could also see the amenities that are available in the apartments as well as the ones available to the community as a whole. I did not want a complex that had a lot of extras that I would have to pay more rent for, because I knew that I would not use most of them, like a pool or tennis courts. That is how I found my new home, and I am hoping this fresh start is exactly what I need.
I have a very nosy neighbor. She will get in your business like no one else. It was getting annoying to the point I wanted to really say something to her about minding her own business. I try to redirect her away from gossip and it never works. I do not want to be rude, but I like to avoid her as much as possible. She is super nosy about knowing how much people earn. I used a paystub maker online to feed her false information as a practical joke.
I earn a below average living. It is a struggle to get by at times. My house matches the other ones on the street for value, but it was given to me by my grandfather. The furniture inside is older but well kept. I drive a used car. There is nothing that makes me look wealthier than my other neighbors. I started grooming my neighbor by mentioning things about saving money and not spending it even if you have a lot of it. Then I printed out pay stubs using the pay stub maker I found online that showed me earning 10 times what I currently make for a living. I just took my real pay stub information and multiplied it by a factor of 10. Then I left the file folder on my kitchen table with the paystubs I printed in it showing each one going back to the beginning of the year.
I left the folder out with a calculator and some tax forms like I was getting ready to do my taxes. My neighbor was visiting and I poured us some coffee. Then I excused myself to answer my house phone. I had dialed through using my cell phone I had in lap. I held a fake conversation for a few minutes to allow her time to snoop. I could see by the look on her face that she had looked in the folder while I was gone. Now she has some information to keep her busy wondering about for some time to come!
