Going from dorm life to living in a sorority house filled with 40 girls, living in your own apartment is an exciting new chapter.
Your first apartment. Something you will absolutely never forget. And here is why:
1. Your own bedroom
Your own space! This is something you never think about before college and you always took it for granted. Living in a dorm and sorority house, you usually have 1-3 other roommates. Now you can finally sit back, relax, and not worry about leaving your dirty laundry on the floor or throwing your school books all over the place. When you need to unwind after a long stressful day of classes, you can close the door and have “you” time! Something you have not experienced in 2 years.
2. A bathroom
Finally! A bathroom not being used by 30 other people from your floor! You don’t have to worry about the hot water running out or having to take a quick shower because you know that 17 other people are waiting to use it. Say “bye bye!” to the shower caddy because that’s long gone! Now sing as loud as you, it’s YOUR bathroom.
3. A laundry machine
No longer having to run upstairs because you forgot your school ID and no more collecting change for quarters. ITS FREE (...well it's in your rent!) That workout of carrying your laundry down the steps is history!!
4. Trying to eat healthily
Eating healthy on campus can get boring with the same salad or piece of grilled chicken. Having your own kitchen to cook up all the delicious recipes you find on Pinterest is the best. Obviously, the occasional buckeye donuts/Moe’s feast is bound to happen.
5. But the best of all, LIVING WITH YOUR BEST FRIENDS
There is absolutely nothing like it. Having your best friends, two feet away in the rooms next door instead of another dorm or sorority house can be the best feeling in the world. Beware, endless snuggles, binge-watching, and junk eating will definitely happen. And of course, you now have 3 or more closets to pick out your Thursday night outfits from! Get ready for a million selfies, loud Spotify playlists playing throughout the apartment on game days, and cute little study sessions at the dinner table. These are the days you will never forget.
