Living Near a Mountain is Now a Reality for Me

When I was in college, I used to drive to Asheville with my friends for the weekend. We always had so much fun there. So, when I read about my once in a lifetime dream job being there, I jumped on the chance to put in my resume with the hope that I would at least get an interview. As interested as I was, I did not know if I really had a chance. When I found out I got the job, I was elated. It was time to look through Asheville NC apartments for rent soon after.

One of the reasons that I liked visiting that city during my college years was because of how much fun we had, but that was not the only reasons. It is absolutely beautiful there. The area is surrounded by mountains and wooded areas. Everything is so gorgeous and lush. While it is not a small town, it is not an overly large place either. It still has a hometown, country-like feel. And the food there is excellent. There are so many good southern restaurants. And I really missed the grits, fried green tomatoes and other foods there that I could not get when living in New York. I was looking forward to being around all of those things full time.

I found a place relatively quickly. I picked a place that is at the base of a mountain! Who would have ever imagined that I would be living the mountain life full time. The trees on the mountain are beautiful. There are even bears living in the woods. Every once in awhile you can see one, but for the most part, they are afraid of people and the city, so they mostly keep their distance. I have a nice big balcony in the apartment so that I can look out over the woods.
