As some of you may remember, my last blog entry was about finding an apartment and having to move. Well, it happened. In the span of 72 hours, my roommates and I found an apartment, signed papers, and moved – mostly because ResLife at Portland state required me to move out ridiculously quickly. But the new place is wonderful!
Living off campus, in Lake Oswego, might mean a drive but I have gained two amazing roommates, a full size fridge, and an oven that is actually from this century, decent water pressure, a shower, and even a dishwasher! While campus housing has its perks, I love my new place. And I would much rather commute by Trimet or drive, than pay the extra price to live downtown or on campus for less amenities.
I guess when it comes to it; we all figure out what we can and can’t live without. I can live with a little less convenience in commute time. I can’t live without modern appliances. Can you?
