My sister moved back home suddenly. She had a health scare living up north, and she wanted to be home for her treatments and therapy. However, I knew there was no way she was going to be able to enjoy living back at the house with mom and dad. My sister and I feel like we are adopted even though we are their biological kids. Mom and dad are noisy and always busy with friends and entertaining. I looked for apartments for rent in Hattiesburg MS to find a place for my sister. My place was like a closet compared to her old apartment. She wanted one bedroom and one bath now, and I found her the perfect place with a lake view.
I liked the place so much that I leased an apartment there that also has one bedroom and one bath. Neither of us is big on entertaining. We both like our privacy, and we just pretty much put a lot of time into our work. We both are able to work from home now that we have degrees and programming skills that gaming companies like to use. We have been freelancing for a few years now. We talked about starting a business venture together, but we kind of like to go it solo with the freelancing. It does allow us, well, a lot of freedom, so calling it freelancing is a good term.
My sister recovered from her health issues. She talked about moving back up north, but she did not want to see any snow any time soon. I am with her on that one. I had enough going to school up there. I enjoy the warm weather here, and I am very pleased with my apartment and the lake on the grounds here. There are apartments here that have two and three bedrooms, but having only one makes it so mom and dad won’t invite themselves to stay for the weekend. I am not a socialite by any stretch of the imagination, and neither is my sister. We like our friends, but we like to come home to our quiet apartments too. We are stuck in our routines like old people even though neither of us is 30 yet.
