In what kinda building in what kind of area do you live? What would be the ideal way to live for you?
I am currently between residences. Soon I will live in very nice condo 1.4 miles from work.
My ideal home would be:
- near a body of water
- private hottub in the back (I recently discovered the benefits and pleasures of such a thing)
- rambling garden with lots of rosemary and hydrangea
- hardwood floors
- bungalo style
- it must be quiet - this is nonnegotiable; preferably a community that has outlawed bass booster in cars; yeah yeah yeah - it's pie in the sky but a girl can dream
I don't need much more... my tastes are relatively simple.

I live alone on a rented apartment in the center of a big city. And that's exactly how I want it... I want to live where all the people and services are. However, I need this personal space in the center of it all. I need my solitude.
Ideal for me would be a studio apartment (easier to keep clean) with a balcony in a highrise building in a large city; a place where none of my neighbors say hello or drop by; a place with no doorman that I'd feel obligated to say hello to every time I exit and enter the building. A place where I can be anonymous.
As a weekend get-away I'd like a one-room shack in the mountains; no electricity or running water would be fine (as long as there were no bugs).
I live in the on-campus Residence Hall at the university I attend. Well, I don't just simply live there, I am one of the 3 Area Coordinators that coordinate the Resident Assistant (RA) Staff and the building.
I'm living the city now, but I am from a small country county of roughly 2,000 people.
Ideally... I don't have too much of a preference about where I live. I would like to build my own house one day, but I don't know if I'll ever be able to do that on a University Teacher's salary! Friendly neighborhoods have always appealed to me. In the country my nearest neighbor is about a mile away, lol. Gated communities don't sound to shabby, either.
