I was looking forward to starting a teaching job in Columbia, but I had to find a place to live before I could actually get started. I lived in Tennessee when I was hired on, so I had a bit of time before I had to report for my first day. I was happy because I had no idea how long it would take for me to find the perfect place. It actually did not take as long as I thought it would, mainly because I found http://www.parkatbouldercreek.com, which had gorgeous apartments.
I looked at the area that the apartment complex is in, and I was happy to see that it is in a really good section of town. I know crime can hit anywhere, but I wanted to make sure that this was not in an area that is always in the news, which it wasn’t. Another bonus is that it is not that far from the school that I will be working at. I was able to look at the apartments online so I could see the floor plans. I wanted to know what the units looked at without having to make a trip there before I was ready to move.
Since I was able to do everything online, it did not take me long to get everything settled. I can even make my rent payments online, and if I have any maintenance issues, I will be able to fill out a form online and it will be taken care of pretty quick. There is not one thing that I did not like, and I was happy that my application was accepted. Moving to a new area and starting a new job is stressful enough but living in a nice apartment certainly helps take some of it away!
