My downstairs neighbors moved out a while ago and their apartment was unoccupied for months. We got used to the silence and the extra garage space. But our landlord finally got his shit together, and the new neighbors moved in yesterday. New neighbors are always interesting because they shake things up a bit. A neighbor can be your best friend or your worst enemy. A good neighbor can make a shitty place seem better. A bad neighbor can turn your dream home into a nightmare. So it’s important to talk to your new neighbors and get a feel for their personalities. You learn their names and what they do for a living and what they do for fun. You’re going to see them all the time so it’s better if you get along (or at least pretend like you do). Our new neighbors seem pretty chill, even though I’ve only talked to them for a minute. They have a cool dog, that’s always a plus. And they haven’t told us to keep the noise down yet. So far, so good. New neighbors, welcome home.
