Another weekend. I almost need to wonder in the streets with EnVision apartment kicking me out while there is still another month left with my internship. On Thursday, I went to E Tallmadge St to look at one room I found on craigslist. It has security cameras around the front and loan business in the back. The room is pretty dark with a window facing the main street. It gave me the feeling that anyone can just walk in and knock at your window. I cannot imagine staying in such a place alone and I don’t have the courage either to go out into the neighborhood. I still want so much to go out for a walk every day even if it is ust myself. Living here, it is impossible.

However, despite every bad aspect of this choice, it still remains as the only option for now.$135 per week is the best price I can find for one-month staying. I told the owner I will come back again on Friday and move most of my stuff here. Saying goodbye to him, I headed back to EnVison.

Staying in my apartment, I finally realized what a bad idea it is to even think of trying this place. It is not the right thing, I know it, I am just taking it because of lacking better option. But I can in fact try other options. At that moment, I thought of Amrita, a Kuwait girl I met the last Sunday at Kanwar’s place. I called her and asked if she was willing to give me a shelter. Despite living in a small one bedroom apt, she said yes, which relaxed me a lot while I was still feeling something missing. Later, Amrita called me again telling me she has other friends who have 2 bedroom apt with one empty, which might be a better choice for me. The next day, she gave me the contact information of a Chinese lady-Sharon. Her husband is away during the next month and she might be able to rent me her apt. During lunch time, I found out that Sharon sits close to Darshen during work. After lunch, I went to her place and talked with her about this following our morning conversation through lotus message. Still, she told me she can help me if I can’t find another place, but she won’t give me the key and is not allowed to duplicate the key. Thus, this choice was excluded.

Coming back to my spot, I got an email from Amrita providing me one more contact information of another lady, whose case is very similar to Sharon’s. I messaged her and she told me to call her any time after work. Right after 5pm, I called her and she told me I was welcome to stay with her since her husband was away for the next two months. We also made an appointment to look at her place at 7 pm.

At the same time, I got into contact with a pre-med student who rented a house with his friend on  Aster Ave and want  another roommate to share the cost. I called him and shared my basic information with him. Also, he told me his mother and sister will be able to meet me at the house that afternoon to show me the place.

With these two options, I finally can say goodbye to the motel-like room and get back to normal neighborhood. That afternoon, I arrived at Aster Ave. It is not a perfect neighborhood but there are some nice and cozy houses and definitely five times better than the motel-like room. The house next to the boy’s house is has a very cute bunny figure before it and is a really interesting one. After waiting for one while, I saw an old lady coming with her daughter and their big dog. They kindly showed me around and we chatted for a while. Then his son also came and we had a nice time chatting. She met her husband who is from Iraq and she was like a friend of the kids. I can feel that pleasant family atmosphere staying with them. This house seems a pretty good choice, although I was stilled concerned with what if someone break into the house.

About the second option, I met with the Indian lady-Vijita. Her apartment located in Fairlawn, which is a beautiful and nice neighborhood, I can say five times better than the last house. And I found her a very nice lady. She told me she had hard times before just like me. That’s why she really hopes to help me out. I felt comfortable talking with her and almost decided to choose this place until she told me lots of corps go around this place. Thinking of my driving status without a license, this news really frightened me out. She told me to think about it and I always need to trade off.

Going back home, I talked to Diya and she suggested me to stay with Vijita since she was sure I would be happier this way. And she said I will be fine if I drive decently. At that time, I became more inclined to this option. Then, I called bmp and he also agreed the same thing. Besides, he is coming to help me move on Friday. Thinking of meeting with him always made me happy.

On Friday, we cleaned most part of the apt and packed most of stuff. Then we finished everything on Saturday and finally said goodbye to EnVision. Like Diya said, this apartment management takes advantage of us being students and they are actually very cold people despite seemingly politeness. Even at that last moment, the lady said she tried everything to help me and responded ‘you’re welcome’ like she really deserves my gratitude. I need to admit that there are people in USA who are actually not very good people though they may seem to be very polite and professional. Even about the renter’s insurance, they forced me to buy it the moment I came here and now told me that that is non of their business and I need to cancel it by myself. I understand the business side, but they don’t even try to explain the whole thing in a more insightful way. God, despite being polite to them, I really think that this EnVision apartment has a bad management and like Diya said, people work here say stupid things.

Thus, I concluded my apartment adventure and found a very beautiful place to stay for my last month in Akron. This whole adventure changed my opinion of people from different countries,especially Indian people. Most of them are so nice, like Amrita, Vijita and Kanwar.

Diya said to me through her apartment window,’look at us, Chinese and Indian, in the surface we hate each other, but we are actually good friends!’ I can’t agree more.

I am so happy moving to a new place with bmp helping me with every thing. It became much easier. It probably will take another month or so for us to meet again as school has started. I saw him off  Friday afternoon. And I saw love in his tears. I believe in the fact that we don’t need to be separated any more starting from June 1, 2013. And I believe we will both be happy striving for our future.

I miss you and we will work harder and live happily because of this. Love gives us strength and courage. And I saw love in your tears.
