Even though I am single and don’t have children, I still decided to look at two bedroom apartments in Topeka when I accepted a job offer there. I was hoping that I would be able to work from my apartment a lot since the job description said that was possible in some situations, so I wanted to have a home office ready for that opportunity. My sister told me I should save my money and just use the dining room table as my home office, but I wanted something to where I could close the door on it when I was done for the day.
I also knew that I would be able to afford it after looking at the two bedroom units at Oakbrook Terrace in Topeka. The first thing I did was look at the price, because I did not want to get my hopes up, and I was really surprised to see just how cheap it was for two bedrooms. I only had a one bedroom apartment before moving, and I paid a couple hundred dollars more in rent. Granted, the area I was living in had a higher cost of living rate, so it did make sense.
I am just glad that I decided to look at two bedroom units. Otherwise, I might be in a one bedroom apartment instead of having all of this space that I have now. Another bonus is that it has two full bathrooms. That means that I have one completely to myself that no one uses. If I have company over, they use the one that is right off the living room. That is a nice bonus that I had not counted on either. Everything about my apartment is just so much nicer than I expected, and I am really glad it has worked out the way it has.
