My job is really my passion.
I think that must be why I am able to put up with being on the transfer list so often. I have to be at different locations quite often for work and that isn’t exactly a good recipe for planting roots anywhere. And I just can’t get undoubtedly connected to any city because I think that I will just be on the transfer list again before I know it. And that’s why short term rentals always provide me some sort of home base for whenever I’m not working. At first, I gave our corporate housing situation a try. But, of course it just didn’t work out because it didn’t really fit into our style and I felt as if I was at my job whenever I was there. Then I attempted to find some apartments near me in the section of town where I would be working. That again was a problem as I didn’t have any furniture or stuff to put into an apartment. Finding short term rentals with fully furnished rooms ended up being just the thing for me. It allowed me to have the best of both worlds. And sometimes I might be on a project for 3 or 4 months and then once that time was up, I wouldn’t have to worry about breaking a lease. But even better than that, I didn’t have to deal with having to move and find another assignment. This is a really immense relief for a person in my situation. A furnished home gives me the feeling of having a home, even if it’s a temporary one. I think that without short term rentals, I would simply be residing out of a suitcase in a hotel for months at a time.
