The big 3-0 is upon me. I've been living with roommates since I was 17 (I bumped a grade up in early elementary school). That would be thirteen years. I've lived with roommates longer than I was able to form memories living with my family. A few weeks ago, I realized how tired I am of getting twenty minutes notice for guests of my roommates who are going to be hanging out with us for several hours. So I did a scary. I signed for my first solo apartment today! I move in when my current lease expires at the end of September! No need to respond (unless you want to share solo living advice or send me a congrats), just needed to share happy news with people (family's a little overwhelmed with sibling's health problem to care right now).
