I am the type of person who does not embrace change very easily. I like a routine, and I can get a bit flustered when something interferes with that. When I was told I had to move because no one was having their leases renewed at a small apartment complex I had lived at for nearly three years, I admit that I got a bit nervous about it. I knew that I had to start looking at new apartments in Florissant MO soon because we were all only given a 60 day notice about the sale of the complex.
I knew that I would find another place, so that was not the problem. Just embracing that change was going to be the challenge, or so I thought. I was happier than I thought I would be though when I started reading about the Crossing at Northpointe apartments. I had passed by them a few times, but I never really took a good look because I had no reason to. First off, the prices are definitely affordable, which was actually a nice surprise since this is such a large city and prices are just naturally higher than they would be in a smaller community.
Also, there is a swimming pool here. That is the first thing I noticed, and I confess that I got really excited about it. I had not been swimming for years, but it is something that I actually enjoy. The apartments are really nice too. The one I have now is a lot bigger than the one I had at my old apartment complex, and it is also nicer because it is much more modern. For the first time, I am seeing that change is not always a scary thing. Sometimes, it can be an amazingly good thing, such as getting evicted from my old apartment and having to find a new place to live!
