Summer has come to an end and the infamous move-in time at college has almost come to an end, as well! I know I’ve given advice about dorm-living and how to deal with roommates, but now I’m starting a new journey – living off-campus!
I decided over the summer to move into a ministry house with 11 of my dearest friends, and here I am blogging from my new house, enjoying every minute of it.
1. It is MUCH cheaper if you find the right place.
-You most likely won’t be living alone, and that gives you many other roommates to split the rent and utilities.
2. You can probably find somewhere air-conditioned.
-After living in an un-air-conditioned dorm for two semesters, I can tell you how thrilled I am about this.
3. You can cook your own food.
-I guess for some people, this might be a downfall, but I love not having to eat campus food!
4. You get a bigger space.
-Even if your bedroom is just as small, you’ll have a common living space where you can spread out.
5. You have INDEPENDENCE.
-Living off-campus hands you so many responsibilities and teaches you so much about living independently.
Like I said, these are just a FEW pluses, but I am soaking them all up. I’ve also been learning how to live effectively on a budget, and I decided to start a new blog to document these savvy ways I’ve been picking up.
So as I post on there, I’ll keep you updated with a link.
Enjoy your day. ♥
