Traditions is the first apartment I’ve ever had and the first place I’ve lived on my own away from family. Traditions represents freedom. Freedom away from my family, I love them dearly, but I was being smothered. I no longer have to get woken up at 3 in the morning getting tech questions or integrated every time I come a little late. Of course now I have to cook for myself, but it’s worth it. The first time I entered Traditions I was exhausted mentally from the car ride I had with my family, but bursting with energy because I had a place all to my own. Of course there has been a few problems with it, leaks, bugs, wifi, and cable to name a few but I’m still excited because being out on my own proves that I’m an adult. And One way to prove that you’re an adult and living on your own for the first time is how broke I am.
