I’ve lived here about three weeks now, and I suppose I’ve gotten to know the apartment pretty well at this point.
Perks of living in a really old building:
-Lots of closet space
-French details on the walls, trim, doors, framework.
-Mosaic tile in the hallways
-Squeaky EVERYTHING. Floors, doors, cabinets…
-Sticky doors and crazy doorknobs
-Scary basement. Very scary.
But I love it. I love it so much. I have a cozy quiet (but squeaky) place to come home to. There was always noise at the dorms. ALWAYS. Any day of the week, any time of night. Ironically, it was quietest on the weekends. More and more people went home on the weekends as the semester went on. I love my new roomie and I absolutely love having actual furniture. I never want to leave!
