Hi. So I'm gonna give you another tour in my room. If you saw this and beginning of the year in, like, September Now it's May, and I don't think the room changed that much, but I'll give you another one anyway, uh, so we're gonna start at the door. There's two other girls living here. First, it's my first roommate's bed on this side. It's my own side, my bed and everything and then right across from me is my third roommate, so we will get the same thing. It's a lofted bed so everyone gets the top bunk we all get. Like that's the furnishing that you get in your room. Yeah, like I added my own things to it because I have a lot of items. So I like put string lights on my bed, and I decorated with my plants hanging right on the loft and pictures. I'm actually like the only one out of my roommates who, like, did some decorating, but yeah, I guess I'm a little anxious sometimes. We do have this weird empty space here, too, and I just put a curve in it. I sit here sometimes, put my laptop on this and yeah, because it's spring time. Hey, so some of the room essentials that I think are pretty essential are having, um, like the's outlet chords, like a whole whole row of outlet's, because there's only four, you know, just for in a room. We have our own laptops, our own chargers, speakers and stuff like that. So if you have one of those outlets strips, it'LL make things easier. Uh, I think another thing that I mentioned was having one of these hooks for towels because there's nowhere else to hang your things. So if you have your own like towel rack, they'LL be really useful and especially because you're on the top bunk. You can't put it next to your head. That's like radiation. So I have this little shelf that I screwed into the side of my bed, and then I use it to put my water bottle and my phone and like, my lip balm and everything. So when I'm like sleeping, I could be like, Oh, I need my phone. The downside about having a triple in this building. Is that okay? The downside of having a triple all is these things hurts so much. I can't tell you the amount of times that I've like gone up from my seat and I was like, but it's okay. Okay, there's a lot of students here on campus, and the school can't provide housing for all the students who want housing. So it's kind of like a competition to get a dorm or an apartment on campus and your only guarantee two years on campus after that. Like most likely, you have to move out and find somewhere off campus? Um, yeah. Like getting an apartment or a dorm here is based on you or registration time. I don't really know how they assigned times two people. Yeah, registration my open at, like a M, and then we'll close at ten PM So if you have something earlier on, of course, it's, like, more preferable to you. If you have something in the later time slot, you might end up not getting a house. So one of the strategies people use is toe like group up. If their friend has an early registration time, they could thanks, put their name in an apartment and then, like, put all their friends names in the apartment, and then they could all live together. Another option is that you're kind of just like on your own. Of course, the very last option is living off campus. There's a lot of really close residences and apartments off campus, and they're just like a few minutes walk away from school or a bus right from school.
