The first year of school was supposed to be fun, but I did not enjoy it. I had planned on living full-time with my Grandparents, but I had to live in the dorm the first year. I spent every weekend with my Grandparents, as well as my parents joined us for the holidays. I just couldn’t get used to the school dorms. I guess some of it had to do with the lack of superb heating. When the dorm Dad asked myself and others why I wasn’t glad, I told her. I grew up in the deep south as well as I wasn’t used to cold weather. I had only chosen to go to the school in Glenville, IL because I would be close to my Grandparents, who lived only a mile away. They had excellent heating in their apartment. Here, all I did was shiver all the time, as well as I couldn’t get any rest. She checked the gas furnace in my dorm room as well as said she would call the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C corporation to have them check it out. In the meantime, she gave myself and others a pass so I could spend the rest of the month at my Grandparents, but I had to check in with her once a day. I know this was just so she knew I was in university. I happily went back as well as forth to my Grandparents; silently hoping that I could do this everyday as well as not go back to the dorm. Both of us had a horrible snow storm 1 evening. I laughed thinking about a snow day, however back home, we only had afternoons off because of hurricanes. Glenville, IL has actual snow afternoons, which made myself and others glad.
