My First Place is a Dream

I wanted to buy my own apartment in Istanbul rather than live with my cousin, which is what I had been doing since I graduated from college three years ago. She is rarely home as she is a flight attendant, so it worked out well for both of us. However, she is getting married soon, and I just did not want to feel like a third wheel. I started looking at apartments, and it did not take me long to find one that is within my price range. I had never purchased an apartment before, or any kind of property for that matter, so I wanted to find out what all was involved before I went any further.

Thankfully, the website that I found the apartment for sale on is quite comprehensive. I was able to look at all of the steps, which is more than what I realized. (more…)

Moving to Dallas to Work in the Oil Fields

We used to live on the east coast until the job I had at a manufacturing plant ended with everyone getting a permanent layoff. My uncle lives in Texas and got me a job in the oil fields starting immediately. I needed to look for nice North Dallas apartments to move my family to while working, and my wife started packing things up back home. She was working a full time job too, so she had three times the amount of work with the kids and packing. My aunt works at a local hospital in Dallas, so she got my wife a job there. My wife is a nurse. She just recently graduated and started working in the medical field, and the loss of my job upended us all.

I found some nice North Dallas apartments with a pool and a bunch of other nice amenities. The kids were actually looking forward to the move to a warmer climate. (more…)
