Right now, I'm sitting on a futon couch in my tiny tiny dorm room. You might be wondering, you're almost 21 and you live in a dorm room? Yes! I originally dormed during my freshman year of college (two years ago) at University of St. Thomas. Then I lived on my own in a small apartment for a few months, moved back home to my parents, and then lived in a town-house in my home town for a year.
During living in this town-house I made the huge decision to leave everything I knew and switch to a school three hours south in Winona, MN. This was such a huge change for me, it was terrifying, and new, and exciting. I could write an entire post about the process of changing my life completely by switching schools, and towns, and friends, and jobs, but I'll post that one later. (: Sticking to the topic of housing I realized I didn't know anyone in Winona so I would have to dorm again. I could have tried to find a house somewhere in town with random roommates, but dorming again didn't sound like the worst thing ever, and the work that's required in finding an off campus place to live was too much for me to think about with everything else I had to do to make the move.

The lease for this apartment didn't start until June 1st, and I had to be signed out of my dorm by May 10th. This caused a bit of a panic at first but we've got a plan. After Moving out of my dorm tomorrow (May 7th) I will move some of my things into John's room at his current house. I will live there with him for the rest of May, and then we will move into our apartment on June 1st.
