Oh Happy Day

Today was move out day at the Dorms. Every May, each and every student must file out of their respective dorms and go find somewhere else to live while the building licks its wounds gets cleaned. Actually, the students are required to clean their rooms like big boys and girls and ask your local RA if it's ok to leave yet. I was there from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM just trying to leave the dang place. I was also helping a friend move out of her place! Poor girl has so much stuff left to move.

Anyway, where do I live now??

I've officially moved out of my dorms, cleaned up, and checked out with the Resident Advisor. I'm all on my own now! My roommate and I have moved into a nice apartment complex on the first floor of the building. Living in dorms really teaches you how to appreciate the little things in life. At first I was living in a house, under my parents' wing. That's probably a grade B living scale. Nothing too extravagant, but I was living comfortably. Then, I moved into college dorms. Granted it could have been worse, It's still a significant downgrade. I'd rate dorm life as a D on the living scale, with F being homeless. It's not that dorms are bad, per se, it's just that I have none of the common appliances that everyone is used to.

Now that I live in apartments, my living environment has increased substantially. Probably back up to level B. An A, by the way, would be like celebrity living in a mansion in Beverly Hills, or North Dallas. So I get my own Laundry facilities, a bathroom of my own, my own room, pets are allowed, a nice big refrigerator, disposal in the sink, fast internet (that's a biggie). Dorms really teach you to appreciate things in life!!
