I found an apartment that I can afford. I will have my own lock to my bedroom and to the apartment. I live in Austin so it’s almost impossible to find a 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom apartment at a cheap price. The rent here is about $1200-3,000 a month. And the one bedroom that is the cheapest is about $800 a month plus you have the utilities. I’m not sure why but the $800 apartments look really crappy and small. I make 15 an hour and I get paid weekly so no way in hell am I able to afford that. This is also my first apartment but I’m just nervous about my experience. Is living with roommates a bad idea for your first place?
