My job is actually my passion, which is why I am able to put up with being on the job so often.
I have to be at different locations very often.
That’s not really the best recipe for planting roots someplace. And I just can’t get really connected to any neighborhood because I always assume that I will be transferred out again really soon. That’s why short term rentals give me a kind of home base for when I’m not out working. At first, I gave the corporate housing situation a try. But, it just didn’t work out very well for me because it didn’t genuinely fit my type or my style. And when I was there, I still felt like I was still at work. Then I attempted to find apartments near me in the place where I would be working. Of course, that was also a concern for me as I didn’t have stuff to put into an apartment to furnish it. Finding short term rentals with fully furnished apartments ended up being just the thing for me. It allowed me to have the best of both worlds. So when I might be on a project for 4 or 5 weeks, once that time was up, I didn’t have to worry about breaking my lease. And even better than that, I didn’t have to deal with an annoying transfer to get to my next assignment. And this is a big relief for a person in my situation. A furnished apartment always gives me the feeling of having a home. That’s nice even if it’s only on a really temporary basis. Without short term rentals, I would simply be living out of a suitcase in a hotel all the time.
