College dorming isn’tsimple.
There are numerous perks, of course, like residing with your friends, cheap housing, and convenient dining options.
It was a load of fun times too! However, there are numerous challenges as well. Learning to live independent of your parents is honestly difficult. It is also difficult to live with a total stranger. Additionally, there are small inconveniences, like heating and cooling mishaps, that make it a bit challenging as well. For example, while in my freshmen year, the furnace was being repaired one weekend, then during the repair, the school had to turn off the furnace. It was turned off for two whole afternoons in the middle of the coldest winter season weekend. It was cold! Many students complained to the school board and took it as far as filing regular complaints. I really would’ve done the same, but I made it through that weekend thanks to a gift from my mom. The only thing that got me through this was my heated blanket. This blanket was so powerful that it kept me sizzling all night despite the lack of heat. I almost forgot about the lack of furnace at night because the blanket was keeping me so warm. I was really overheating a few times. I was beyond thankful that my mom sent me this blanket when I first moved into my dorm. I didn’t know it was necessary, however Mom typically knows best! After those few afternoons, the furnace was up and running again. All was back to normal on my university campus.
