The first year of college was supposed to be fun, despite the fact that I did not appreciate it.
I had planned on living full-time with our Grandparents, despite the fact that I had to live in the dorm the first year.
I spent every weekend with our Grandparents, plus our parents joined us for the holidays. I just couldn’t get used to the college dorms. I suppose some of it had to do with the lack of great heating. When the dorm mom asked me why I wasn’t blissful, I told her. I grew up in the deep south plus I wasn’t used to cold weather. I had only chosen to go to the college in Glenville, IL because I would be close to our Grandparents, who lived only a mile away. They had excellent heating in their apartment. Here, all I did was shiver all the time, plus I couldn’t get any rest. She evaluated the oil furnace in our dorm room plus said he would call the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C contractor to have them check it out. In the meantime, he gave me a pass so I could spend the rest of the week at our Grandparents, despite the fact that I had to check in with his once a morning. I guess this was just so he knew I was in college. I happily went back plus forth to our Grandparents; silently hoping that I could do this everyday plus not go back to the dorm. The people I was with and I had a horrible snow storm one night. I laughed thinking about a snow morning, however back home, every one of us only had days off because of hurricanes. Glenville, IL has actual snow days, which made me blissful.
