A few months ago, I got the news that my apartment had become a ghost town, the ghost of the year, and my life was about to end.
After years of living in an old-fashioned brick building with a few broken windows and a cracked ceiling, it was time to clean up and move out.
After my husband got sick with a virus and I couldn’t afford to pay for the $400 cleaning bill, I made the decision to vacate the house.
I had a good job, a nice car, and a few perks, including free air conditioning and a great dog.
I also knew I was a bad housemate, and I wanted to keep the house clean and comfortable.
I made plans to move in and start the remodeling process right away.
I knew I wanted the old house, but the renovation had just begun.
A few days later, I woke up to a call from my landlord, who told me she was closing my apartment because it was too dangerous to live there.
She had just discovered that a young man had been cleaning up my apartment for years.
He’d been a roommate, and he was my landlord.
She wanted me to leave and get out.
I was devastated.
I felt like I was being lied to.
The story was heartbreaking, but it wasn’t all bad.
I realized that while living in a place with no air conditioning was a terrible way to live, I was also in the midst of an incredibly dangerous situation.
In this article, I’ll tell you how I saved my apartment from becoming a ghost and how I managed to move forward in life after my eviction.
