Being in My Own Place Makes Me Happy

I had no idea that it is somewhat hard to secure a place on university grounds to live in. At first, I was disappointed when I didn't have any luck with living on school grounds. However, instead, I get to live in Edinburgh University flats that I found on my own, and living there is much better than being stuck living at school all the time. Having a flat makes me feel more like an adult and the privacy is a really nice thing, too!

After I moved into my own place, many of my student friends have told me that they are envious of where I live. Everyone who lives in the building is a student, but we don't have school administrators breathing down our necks all the time with really strict rules. We follow the rules of the building owner, which match the typical types of rules that most building owners have for tenants anywhere. I also like the privacy that I get with my own place. In a dorm, you are almost always forced to live with a roommate to keep costs down for the school. But with a flat, I can live there by myself if I want or choose someone to room with. Personally, I feel it's best to not have a roommate because you never know if someone is going to be loud, play music, have too many friends over or party too often. I get to live how I want to and have quiet all the time.

Since there are only students in my building, I can easily leave my place and go out to meet my student neighbors. At night, we sometimes get together to study, talk about school or other things we need support with and things like that. After that conversation ends, I can still go to my own place for a quiet night of study and sleep with no one else to bother me.

Staying in a Nice Hotel Refreshed Us

When my wife told me that she was looking into hotels near Silverstone Race Track, I think she could tell how shocked I was. I love watching the races but I had never been to one in person. While I have always enjoyed watching them on TV, she knew that my dream was to one day go to a race in person. She told me that she had finally paid off a couple of large debts that we had over the years, and it was time to finally treat ourselves to a few things we have on our bucket list.

She never watches the races with me as it is just not her cup of tea, so I was especially happy that she would be going with me. She told me that while she had no interest in watching the race with me at home, she thought she might appreciate it more seeing it in person with me. She was able to find a hotel that is not far from the race track ,and she booked it for three nights. When I asked her why three nights when the race there is just for a day, she told me that she wanted us to just enjoy some time away from our normal everyday routine.

That is one of the reasons why I love my wife so much. She knew that I would enjoy the race, but she also knew that I would appreciate a couple of more days at the hotel just so we could escape the rat race. The hotel she picked for us was really nice, and I think that this might end up being something we do more often. Spending time together like this in a nice place really refreshed both of us, and we know we need more of that in our lives.
