Before I Am Moving Out Series

Before I am moving out: Chapter 5

Did I get the apartment?

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Chapter 5 of my series “Before I am moving out”. First I want to apologize for not posting last week. But later you will understand why. If you haven’t already, please check out the previous chapters so that you know what I am talking about.

I’m not going to let you wait any longer and just get right into it.

After all the waiting and all the other things I went through, I ended up not getting the apartment. More than 3000 people applied. I was so upset because I really thought that I would get one of the apartments. I prayed for it. I manifested. I checked all the boxes. My income was high enough, I got a permanent contract, I don’t have any debt, I had €17 in my savings account, etc. But I’m not a high earner so I feel like they gave the apartments to the highest earner. I really thought that I was the perfect match. I really thought that I was going to live there. I could see myself in there. My mom even bought me some stuff for in the kitchen. They gave my apartment to someone else.

I think the reason that I was so hurt by the situation is that I waited for more than 8 weeks. I dreamed about it. The location was perfect.

There are also some other sketchy things that happened during the time they were telling us who were getting the apartments. It doesn’t make sense to talk about it anymore. But the point is that the company was lying to us on the phone about certain things, which was really annoying.

I told my mom that I didn’t get the apartment immediately when she came home, because I felt guilty that she got me some stuff already. But she told me to not worry and that I will get an apartment. And it’s true. It’s just that I wanted specifically that one apartment. But I guess I just have to let go.

To be honest, I did not want to make this post, because it’s hard to write about something when you are sad about it. So I gave myself a week to get myself together and start writing this post because, at the end of the day, this is part of the journey.

I don’t know what else to say about it. I just didn’t get my dream apartment.

What now? 

I am just going to keep looking. When I see something nice I am just going to apply and wait and see. Only if I meet the financial requirements of course. I don’t want to be that invested in any apartments anymore.

Since all that happened I got some apartments in my mail, which made me feel good. While writing this post I actually got another apartment in the mail.

So the journey continues. I’m going to keep writing and documenting the journey, the good and the bad.

Now that I finally wrote this blog post, I feel better. I feel like I can move on now.

Everything is going to be alright.

This is all I have for today. Thank you for your precious time and until next time.

  1. What?!?!? Why? Is it really that difficult to get an apartment? So many people applied for an apartment? Wow! But I do feel you disappointment. Don’t stress about it though, you’d find something better. There is a reason for everything, sooner or later the reason why you didn’t get this one will manifest itself and you’d be thankful. When one door closes another one will open.


      1. That’s the spirit!! Never give up, something better will come, then you’d say “I’m so glad I didn’t get the other place that I thought I really liked and wanted!”
