After two weeks in my new apartment, I feel that I have wisdom to share. Here are some things I have learned so far:
It is much easier to take a heavy mattress off your bed than to put it back on.
Quarters are actually useful.
If you are patient, you will eventually slay the giant evil spider.
The kid in the bicycle helmet banging on your door at 7:30am will eventually realize he is at the wrong apartment.
A complex full of studio apartments = a complex full of couples.
A complex full of studio apartments = a complex full of people who don’t want to meet their neighbors.
Your shower just isn’t going to be as hot as you want it to be. Deal with it.
It’s smart to think about where the sun will shine when you pick out your apartment’s location, especially if you LIKE sun.
Once you pluck up the courage to try out the “exercise room” (really an oversized living room in the clubhouse with some equipment in the corner), it really isn’t so bad. And you get used to the people staring at you (just pretend like they’re wishing they were as disciplined as you… they don’t know you haven’t exercised all semester).
