I may not have a lot of experience yet in life, but I know that it is best to live with a friend if you are young and can’t pay for all your basic living needs on your own. I knew that there is no reason to get myself into debt. So, I asked my best friend if she wanted to look at Newport News apartments for rent with me. Her face lit up immediately. She had been wanting to move out, but she only works part time and goes to school, so she knew that she could not do it by herself. I have graduated and have a full time job now, but extra help and support is always a very good thing.
My parents told me that they would help us with furniture and a lot of other things that we will need. Despite all the things in my parent’s home, I had never really sat down and thought about the fact that a mop, broom, towels, toilet paper and all the other things that you need for basic needs can add up to quite a bit of money. So, mom sat me down and wrote out a big list of the most essential things that we will need. When I saw the total price, I was a little nervous. But she said that I have always been a good kid, and that I have worked hard to get through school and stay out of trouble, so she was willing to help.
My dad helped me and my best friend find the best place for us. It’s in a very secure area. The rent is a price we can both afford. It is in a part of town that makes our jobs and our families still very accessible to us. My parents are helping us to learn all that we need to know.
