Sorry If I don’t have much to say today, but today was move-in day so I didn’t quite have time for my usual process, it was move-in day. They say that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, but I would argue the counter point is also true. Jeez, were the Freshman dorms terrible. I didn’t realize your room isn’t supposed to smell like that. Although I will say, my old Freshman dorm did have one nice thing about it. The dorm had a nice lounge with a TV, a sofa, and a sweet ping pong table. The new apartment…not so much.
I should probably catch you up. If you recall, last year I was in an all-male freshman dorm. It was terrible. I mean it was habitable, but that’s not saying much, what being the minimum requirement of a residence hall. Well that was last year, this year, I am in an on-campus apartment with three of my friends from college. Needless to say it’s a step up, or a giant leap up rather. It’s awesome, I got my own room, a little shared kitchen, and most importantly of all, a non-communal bathroom. OH MY GOD YES! Gone are the days of waking up at 1 am to release the kraken only to have my late night festivities interrupted by the exorcism going on in the next stall.
I can finally take a shower without my shoes on. It is so nice. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to rearrange my furniture for the eight millionth time, because it’s not like there’s only so many ways you can arrange a bed, a desk and a wardrobe, in a room slightly larger than a jail cell.
