I’ll tell you: you see your neighbors in the hallways, elevators, common areas and parking lots. You “borrow” sugar, butter, can openers and cooking tips. You chat for an hour when you cross paths. You share the hot tub and meet new people every week. And sometimes, you even see someone in their undies!
In college, I loved my dorm and my roommate! And then I loved my apartment and my roommate. My favorite things were the camaraderie and sharing!
My favorite part of living in an apartment now is that there are always friends around. My challenge to you: Enjoy a chat w/ your neighbor. Meet someone new. Make it loads of fun.
How are you doing with that?
