I wasn't working and I was taking the bus back and forth to school.
When I finally got a job, then a car, then an apartment, my dream of living above a store, bakery, etc., went out the window. Instead, I found a cute little place that was not in a typical apartment building. I had a job and I had my independence. I guess that was good enough for me and it was fun. But whenever I'm a passenger in a car and we drive past apartments that sit up above a business, I find myself stretching my neck to get a glimpse of life above and wonder.
