Day 22 – Make A Decision And Stick To It

August 24, 2011

My brother-in-law put the cat in a cage last night. I slept in the closet with my sister.

I woke up this morning to find a text from my brother suggesting that I reconsider moving into the apartment that I’m supposed to get the keys for in the next two hours. He thinks the neighborhood is too dangerous… Technically the neighborhood is not dangerous and we will be living three blocks away from a dangerous neighborhood, but…

I really just wanted to clean the floors and get my bed today, set up my desk and organize my papers… I was so looking forward to a place to call home, and the apartment is nice and clean and spacious and very gated. The only issue might be walking through the neighborhood three blocks down at night, but we can work that out.

I’ve lived in areas considered dangerous before and I’ve run this thing over and over in my head and considered the possible consequences. There will always be other options, and I’m sure that with some more time (I’m not sure how much) we might be able to find a place within two miles of sis’s school that is in a safer neighborhood and has similar value…

Call me stubborn, but I already made up my mind. We’ll be just fine.

I’m going to get the keys.
