Saturday Nine~The First Apartment

1. Where had you moved from?

I moved from my parents house into my first apartment. Though they lived in an apartment in the same complex.

2. Describe your first apartment.

It was a two bedroom townhouse style.

3. How old were you when you had your apartment?

I was 20.

4. Did you have roommates? If yes, tell us more.

I had a roommate. She and I had known each other since we were 13. This should have been a good partnership, but we were both young and immature. We had a rule not to let guys spend the night, but one morning I discovered a man had been in the house while I was walking around without clothes on and called her on the answer machine hollering for her to be out before I got home. Stupid move...but I was young...Thank goodness I matured and she and I are friends again. Actually we picked up within a year or so after that incident.

5. What was your place of employment then?

I worked for the Department of Army as a Military Personnel Clerk at the time.

6. How were you finances at the time?

Well, they were better than most, but still tight. I was young and liked to spend money I did not have. Still trying to stop that, doing much better these days.

7. Tell us about a lover who spent a night there.

I had a guy in my life that I would make out with and a former boyfriend in Korea that I would call all the time...that is where my money went...but I never had a guy stay the night.

8. Tell us about a band you listen to then. (You can cheat. Look it up.)

I listened to Warrant and New Kids on the Block.

Discover Warrant!

9. How long did you live there and why did you move from there?

I think I lived there for about 6 or 7 months. I moved back in with my parents for money reasons. It would allow me to save and help out my parents.


  1. Great answers! I love your blog design btw--very cool.

  2. that takes me back!! I would totally freak out if I was going commando in the privacy of my own place and find out that some man was walking around!! Yikes!

  3. Yeah I liked this one too! We lived on the 4th floor the last time we lived in Germany! And, yes it was a killer, but as a teen, I don't remember it being so bad!! lol I would die now!

  4. Oh boy, New Kids On The Block...Seems like forever ago when they first came around. Man I now feel really old,lol. Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  5. Oh gosh.....I'm glad the two of you mended the relationship. You got me remembering my first apartment--and the hallway from hell. LOL OMGosh....
