I really want to become more independent in my personal life and one step that will get me closer to this independence and self-reliance is living on my own. This week I have actively been setting time aside to compile personal budget spreadsheets that I have kept over the past 2 years to assess the amount of money I am comfortable spending on rent. I have also started actively searching for apartments in my desired neighborhoods and have set-up a couple of viewings. I have been thinking about this for a while but I was always making excuses. It is finally time to get motivated and do this!
