I mentioned in a previous post I’m staying in an apartment in a student housing block.
The majority of the other residents are undergraduates, which skews the age range of the building quite young. All of the public areas of the building are heavily focused on upping the “fun factor.”
This means that each of the three flat-screens in the lobby plays MTV music videos 24/7. I honestly didn’t know MTV still played music videos. The decor also screams, “Look how cool we are!” The facilities are very secure and offer all the amenities I need and a few I don’t. I have no complaints and am generally entertained by the forced cool quotient so carefully calculated by the building owners.
My room is pretty comfortable. I have exactly one of each dish, so any friends must BYOD.
This makes for humble dinner parties. The fridge is small but works, and I finally figured out how to use my “two-ring hob” after consulting the modern-day sage (YouTube). I have a microwave/convection-ish oven combo as well. Continuing the fun theme, I am also in possession of a bean bag chair. Less exciting but very useful: I also have a wardrobe & desk.
