Possible New Training Buddy in My Apartment Building

I don't know if I mentioned this earlier here, but I moved my home in the middle of March. I am still in Edgewater Beach, just a little closer to the park and beach. My apartment is a little larger than the last place I had, I am paying $75 month less in rent, and frankly, I trust the management company of my new apartment more than the one that managed the last building I lived in. My bicycle was stolen at my old building, my apartment was invaded by bedbugs that ruined about $2,000 in furniture, and the management company engaged in unlawful housing discrimination, and it was time for me to leave.

In my new building, I've met a nice mix of friendly people and dogs. Yes, the building is dog-friendly, too. I am hoping to adopt a dog or two from a dog rescue organization or animal shelter. Having some canine friends around regularly would likely do wonders for my disposition and mental and physical health.

Last, just a few days ago, I met one of my new neighbors. He's about my size and is interested in doing some boxing training with me. Since summer is approaching, we can probably do some outdoor training. I'll let you know how it goes.
