The People of the Towers
I had a chance to look at the Commonwealth Towers floor plan before moving into it. The floor plan gave me a good idea of what the tower would be like, which is why I decided to live there. The building suited all of my needs and was close enough to my job that I wouldn’t have to take a long commute to work. As someone who doesn’t own a car and has to ride public transportation, the less distance I have to travel, the better. I’d say things worked out perfectly for me when I moved into the Towers.
Since being in the Towers, I’ve had a chance to get to know my neighbors and other people who live on my floor. The person who lives to my right is an older businessman who had been living in the Towers for a couple of years. He made most of his money by doing stock market trading and real estate purchases. He wanted to live in the condo rather than a home because he felt it would be less maintenance. Every time I talk to him, he always has some good advice to give me about business. I was able to buy my first stock because of the tips he gave me, and that stock had done well ever since.
On the left side of me, there is a younger girl closer to my age. She’s attending college to get her master’s degree in teaching. She’s pretty cute and has the most adorable smile when she’s talking to me. Maybe I should ask her out one of these days. Across the hall, there is a married couple and their 8 year old son. They’ve been in the Towers longer than any of us. They are pretty friendly, and their son like to talk to me.
