A Few Days Out…

And I could not be more excited to meet my roommates and move into my new apartment!  We received our roommate assignments about two weeks ago.  I am assigned to a one bedroom apartment with two girls from other colleges around the country.  Now, I know what you are thinking… “One bedroom!? For three girls!?” These were some of my first thoughts as well.

After reaching out to the apartment’s manager, I became more at ease. She informed us that we will have three dorm-sized beds placed in the bedroom.  The bedroom has a walk-in closet and a full sized bathroom attached.  Down the hallway is our living room (which doubles as our dining room).  Lastly, we have a compact kitchen stocked with a dorm-sized fridge, oven, dishwasher, sink, and cabinets!  Needless to say, I cannot wait to show you my apartment.

My roommates and I connected on Facebook Messenger.  Although we haven’t met, these girls are going to make Chicago more fun than I ever thought possible!  Together, we decided to create a spreadsheet for items that we are all bringing to the apartment.  I highly recommend creating a spreadsheet similar to this one.  This way, we don’t accidentally bring too many pots or pans!

Here is a clip of what we are bringing to the apartment!

The weeks leading up to this semester have been both crazy and satisfying.  There were a few weeks where I wasn’t sure if expenses would work out.  Paying for things like internet and meals for 16 weeks felt a little overwhelming to say the least.

That being said, these weeks have led me to further understand God’s control of my life.  As I experience the exciting challenges of this semester, I know that my reliance on God will produce results I never could have imagined for myself.


See you soon, Chicago!
