I just moved into a small apartment at the beginning of this school year, and I love living outside of the dorms.
I just did not like dorm life.
It was not for me. Most of the people in my dorm were more concerned with partying than with school. It was pretty sad because they were paying a ton of money to go to this school. They were very distracting to me, so I knew that I had to move out of the dorms. My parent’s house is about four hours from the university that I am attending, so it is too far for me to live with them. I decided to ask some good friends if they wanted to rent an apartment with me. We decided to get an apartment just about two blocks from the university. It is really nice. The only trouble that we have had with the apartment so far is finding a way to cool it. It did not come with any sort of air conditioning. We were definitely not concerned about it at first because it was January and cold outside when we moved in. Now that it is April, we need air conditioning. I found an air conditioner on clearance at a local store and bought it. It was just a small window air conditioning unit. I knew that I needed it because I was having trouble sleeping at night because of how warm it was. I decided to put the air conditioner in the living room window. It keeps most of the apartment cool. As long as each of us leaves our bedroom doors open, the bedrooms stay cool as well.
