First Apartment

Most people probably remember their first apartment. I finally got mine after living in the dorm for two years.

My first apartment was very small. It was one of several in a house that had been converted into apartments intended mainly for college students. I believe this particular house contained four apartments, although I might be leaving one out. It was a very short walk from campus, the downtown area, and other necessities.

My tiny place was one of two apartments on the house's lower level. It was furnished and had one bedroom, a living room, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. The grand total for rent was $100 plus electric. Unfortunately, I had electric heat.

I lived there for one year and then moved to another apartment. While a student, I never paid more than $200 a month for rent. Then I got a job, moved away, and found out how expensive apartments could be.

It almost makes me cringe that you paid that little! When I was in college, it was about 5-600 with utilities! Why does the dollar have to be the way it is and the cost of living what it is these days?
