Part of completing the relationship bucket list by myself is to find myself again. Moving out on my own is the quintessential place to start. I’m fine being single. I was never one to search for a relationship after one ended. I didn’t have my first boyfriend until I was 18 years old. I love being single, but there does come a time when you want that special someone to come into your life to share certain experiences with to make beautiful memories together. I rather wait for that special someone to come into my life when God knows I’m ready for it.
I work as a healthcare communicator in the Warminster area in Bucks County. Because my house is being foreclosed on and have to move out by June, I’ve been using Relator.com to find an apartment. Friday, I made the decision to move to Elkin Parks area. A coworker of mine lives in the community of Lynnewood Gardens, which is a prestigious suburb of Philadelphia. It is in Cheltenham Township, which is new to me because I’ve always lived in Delaware County. However, there was a brief period of time when I lived with an ex-boyfriend in upstate Montgomery County. This will be the first time I will be living by myself.
Living on my own will allow me to live within my means and budget correctly. I will also start eating healthy food, which I already do, but there are double stuffed mint oreos in my kitchen that beg for me to eat them. Trust me, you’ll not see any double stuff oreos in my new kitchen. However, you will see goodies such as dark chocolate and Trader Joe cookies in my new kitchen.
I will get my independence back in more ways than one. I can only rely on myself to pay my bills, rent, utilities, while also having money to gas up my car, have food in my refrigerator, and also having a social life. I will not have my mom as a back-up to pay for certain bills that should be mine.
Now that I know where I’m going to leave come June, now I have to pay down debt and save up money.
As Always, kisses on the peace sign fingers and love…
