Sharing an Apartment with a Family Member

It’s interesting how some people start living together. I never dreamed that my cousin and I would be living together, but we are. Before now, my cousin and I really didn’t talk that much and we didn’t seem to have much in common. If someone said to me in the past that we would be looking for yuma apartments to live in, I would have doubted them.

One day my family had a large family reunion, and I got to talk to a lot of relatives that I had not seen in a long time, and one of these relatives was my cousin. Apparently my cousin and I had a lot more in common than I thought. We studied many of the same classes in college, knew a lot of the same people, and were even interested in some of the same hobbies. Both of us were recent college graduates and we wanted to move out of our homes. My cousin came up with the idea of us sharing an apartment together. At first, I was little unsure, as I had never lived with another person other than my parents, but the more I thought about it, I could see that it was a good idea, so I agreed.

My cousin and I spent some time looking for different apartments in the Yuma area. I don’t know if it’s something specific to Arizona or not, but apartment hunting in Arizona can become tedious very fast. We found a nice two bedroom apartment with a fireplace inside. There’s a nice pool by the apartments where a lot of people go to swim. My cousin and I are glad that we could move out, since we have a lot more freedom in our own apartment than we ever did at home, and we get to hang out everyday.
