So, I have an internship this summer so I had to move to a new city to work on-site. Well, it isn't a new city, I've been here before but I've never lived her. The drive down wasn't that bad, although there was some traffic here and there. It was mainly from accidents and I'm sure beach vacation travel.
My dad and sisters helped me move. We had some initial problems at first. I followed the instructions of parking in the interior parking lot, going up the stairs, take the elevator to the third floor, and then go to room #309. The wrong person answered the door, whoever she helped direct me where I needed to go. When she noticed that my sisters and I were multiples she was in so much shock she pretty much hyperventilated.
So, we fixed the problem. Apparently, we were in the wrong building and we had to go one building over. I had knocked on room #9309 and not just #309. You would have thought that that number would have tipped me off, but i just thought it was the way the numbering system was for the apartment building and just had 9's in front of the room numbers.
So we find the right parking lot and the right apartment for #309, got my keys and then moved in. My sisters were in shock. I had seen pictures online before hand so I knew what was coming. There are two bedrooms both with two full bed bunk beds and its own bathroom and walk in closet. It has a kitchen with dishwasher, a dining room/living room, and washing machine and dryer. Also, somewhere in the building is the common room, gym/sports center, and a pool.
My apartment mate and I are sharing a room. There are two bedrooms where each bedroom has its own bathroom and walk in closet. Each bedroom has two full sized beds but they are bunk beds. From what we're been told, no one else is moving in with us so we're confused as to why we have to share a room. I'm not against sharing a room because I'm used to it. We decided we're going to use the spare room as a guest room if we have guests over. We're also each using a bathroom so we don't have to share.
On our trip to the grocery store we found a movie theater in walking distance, shops/markets in walking distance, african american hair place, nail place, Popeyes, tons of cultural food places like Thai, Chinese, Japanese, etc, and we also found numerous banks, a dentist, and eye place. I haven't found a Subway yet.
I'm worried that I may go broke by the end of the summer. I'm fully unpacked right now, and tomorrow I'm going to explore to find the gym/sports center and the pool. But most importantly, I need to find a gas station for future trips.
More updates will be posted over the summer! :)
