It's December 1st, and it's my first night at the new apartment. We got the keys two days ago, so we've been moving gradually. (My boyfriend and I.) I'm 21 and this is my first time on my own. We're not far from my parents. About 5 minutes via car. I still feel very sad, though. I bawled my eyes out to my boyfriend about leaving them and my stomach hurts a lot!

I want to be independent. I want to learn how to pay bills and cook. I want to see if I can manage a household, and if I can keep my OCD at bay while not at the house where I spent my life.

It hurts a lot right now, but this was my decision. And the apartment is nice. It's spacious. Only problem is, the other people below us just moved in, and they were blasing music. Everyone in this building is young. They are mostly from a University. I'm not sure if it's going to be a good thing just yet.

We've got most of it set up. My parents gave us a huge couch set, and a nice table set. I have no table to eat yet. I also have no utentils. I'll have to buy some stuff.

There's a lot on my mind right now. My work is hosting a Christmas party and a girl who really hated me may go. She posted horrible stuff online about my boyfriend and me. And, some of her friends (who worked alongside) are bitter.

My stress seems to be overriding my OCD. I should be happy! This is a big transition and everything is going smoothly BESIDES the new people right down below us.

Oh well, just a year. Right? A year. Let's just see how it works out. I just hope I can sleep tonight in my new room. (It'll be weird seeing as I just left the room where I had been in all my life.)

And I really want to punch those loud mouth obonxious people right below us … urgh!!! 🙁

    Awesome Stuff though! I am happy for you! When my wife and I moved into our first apartment we had nieghbors on either side and hollow walls. On one side an older family cooked greens every sunday and they take hours to stew and it smelled like old socks :). The other side was fairly quiet until the weekend and they threw parties and had the bass so loud my dog hid and the pictures rattled. But honestly it was an awesome experience i would do again in a heartbeat. As far as the table and stuff goes, sometimes you have to aquire stuffs as ya go :). All in all sounds good and i believe you will melt into place there or at least i hope you do.

    Best Wishes

    Congrats on the new place 🙂  As you get adjusted the stress should settle down a little. I think you'll find rather quickly how much you like living in your own place, away from your family. By the way, how DID you sleep last night?

    Thanks guy, I appreciate the feed back. I did sleep well when I had finally drifted off. Matress isn't as soft as my old one, but oh well. Cable is set up. Apartment still needs some changing around. I visited my parents briefly today. Probably go back later.


    So I'm alright. Need to get some groceries.
