Last time, I talked about improving the look and the performance of my vehicles after moving to Los Santos a few weeks ago. Then I realized that I’ve been lavishing too much attention on Lisa and Bernadette (my cars) and not enough time on me. While I managed to purchase a garage to put a roof over their head, I never bothered to put a roof above my head! Now, I think it’s time to correct that oversight by looking for an actual place to stay. Nights can be cold if you live on the streets, you know?
I guess the thing that made me want to buy my very own living space was because of a stranger. I got an invite on my phone telling me to go to his place. Being curious, I actually took the invite and went it. And the place was spectacular! Well, I guess any place would be fantastic if you’ve only been living inside your tiny car for almost a month. But, in all honesty, I got jealous! It must have cost a fortune but that only game me more incentive to get a place of my own!
So I drove around the city trying to find an apartment. Apparently, the cost of living in Los Santos is pretty high since I couldn’t find any affordable housing after I blew all my money customizing my cars. So, back to the grindstone! I found a few places to rob as well as go find a few car races to participate in. It’s a good thing that the mysterious organizers of these races will still give me money even though I don’t come in first place! That’s pretty decent of them to do that!
Anyway, I finally earned enough to buy one of the smaller apartments. But what do I do with my old garage? I don’t want to keep moving from my home to my garage just to get my car! That doesn’t make much sense now, does it? Well, I tried going online from the computer in my garage if I could put it back up for sale yet I couldn’t find anyway to do so. Bad luck?
It turns out my bad luck was actually my good fortune. I went to the Dynasty 8 real estate company and I found the place I was about to buy had a measly 2-car garage! I wanted to build up my car family, so to speak and, while I enjoyed the company of Bernadette and Lisa, I wanted more! It turns out that there was a place that was just a little bit more expensive (out of my price range at the time but I can earn the cash pretty quickly) and it came with a 6-car garage. So, off to work I go again!
After finally scraping enough cash, I put down all my money in buying the cheapest apartment that could hold 6 cars. And I’m glad I did! Finally, I have my own bed I can curl up in! I could watch some television and laugh as some Impotent Rage episodes. I can finally take a shower (you have no idea how smelly one person can get if they haven’t showered in almost a month)! I can change outfits without having to find a clothing store! And, most importantly, I can finally relax without having to look behind my back to see if anyone was gunning for me!
I’m kind of glad I didn’t get the smaller apartment! I love my new place. It’s just the right size for me. While it would be great if I could afford the bigger place but my time will come in the future. But for now, I’ll just relax a bit in my crib! But just for a little while! After all that hard work of robbing people, getting into drag races, stealing cars for Simeon and getting shot at by random strangers, I think it’s time for me to take a vacation and take in the sights of Los Santos and Blaine County! And that’ll happen next week!
