When we are talking about a rented home and a life in one of those, we almost always mention the numerous advantages only. And, yeah, they are all true and sound so nice, but as we know the reality is not full of rainbows and butterflies only and is not that nice, we have to mention the disadvantages as well and not only that, but we have to find a way to cope with them all. So let’s stop deluding ourselves, trying to be convinced that there is no heaven other than the rented property and face the ugly truth – sometimes living in such a place can be hard, sometimes unpleasant and sometimes you will want to leave so desperately much, to go somewhere else, to never go back there again. And then, the clouds will break up and everything will be sunny again, you careless and free and your home the best place to go back to after every long adventure and after every day spent at work. So, my friends, the truth is that if you learn to deal with the disadvantages, your life will be a lot nicer.

You will add cushion and candles and other little things that are the spirit of the house indeed. More →
