A good night’s sleep and shower has made me much happier. Picked up Sherin last night, so we’re at the apartment for the day.
It’s definitely a quirky place to live, but I think it’ll grow on us. It has the look of once having been a very expensive, grand apartment that, with years of inconsiderate occupants, has turned into a messy, shabby shadow of its former self. Living with four other girls in an apartment is definitely a test run for future apartment living at school. It’s a bit of a squeeze in the bedrooms with closet space and such, but there is plenty of living room area to make up for it.
Our roommates are a girl from Italy, one from Holland, and one from Malaysia. Holland and Malaysia are leaving within the next two weeks to go home, so we may be getting new roommates to replace them after that. Italy has been living here for 6 weeks already, and she plans to stay up to a year or so, as long as she can keep the internship.
The internet connection is really sketchy, so I am not really sure when I can get back on. I am hoping that I can get credits on the modem so that it will be reliable (their system for internet is so odd here!).
