This Place is Beautiful! My New Home
So I am literally living the dream right now! Some post ago, I mentioned that I have good news and today I will share it. So during my junior year of college I worked in the Department of Residential Education and Housing as a Student Manager. My job was to supervise a group of 17 desk assistants and manage the residents hall office. I worked really hard and came up with some innovative ideas; I can say I am proud of the job I did. When it was time to reapply however, I decided not to because the contract is yearly and I knew that I would be graduating a semester early in Dec 2014.
I was pretty disappointed about not staying with the department but I thought it was better to be honest instead of them having to hire someone midway through the year when I graduate. So I was working this summer on campus with the department and I knew that it would be my last time in this type of position. However, one day my summer boss texted me saying, “April when you’re free stop by my office.” That had me freaked out! I was trying to figure out what the heck I did wrong. To my surprise she told me about a position with the department that was just created which would allow me to live in a gorgeous hotel near campus. Get this, the position was only available until December 2014. This was exactly what I needed, it is as if the position was created just for me. My boss told me I was the first person she thought of and that alone made my day (oh yeah and the fabulous hotel of course). So I jumped at the chance to work and live in this amazing hotel for the last 4 months of my undergrad career. So heres a look at my new home for the next few months.
OMG this bathroom is amazing. The shower is a jewel. I love non traditional sinks. And let me just say the lighting that comes from this sink mirror is perfect for doing makeup or taking pictures.
I love the sectional and the TV swivels so that you can watch it from the couch, the bed, and the kitchen depending on where you are in the room. This really makes a small place functional! This is definitely something I will do when I buy my first studio apartment.
The bed is HUGE. It’s King sized and I have been sleeping like a baby laying on cloud 9. Definitely a step up from the traditional “extra long” twin beds that come with most dorms.
The kitchen section is so modern and chic. I loved how the kitchen came with pots, pans, utensils, a toaster, measuring cups, and even a lemon juicer. That makes me excited about cooking!
It also includes a full fridge and a dishwasher. Guys! I’ve never had a dishwasher in my home, I AM THE Dishwasher at my mom’s home so this should be awesome.
Here is the office area which is great since I am a student with two jobs. It has cool organizing spaces which are helpful!
The hotel also has a pool and a 24hr gym. Say Whattt!!!! (another plus is that the hotel is environmentally friendly. You can plug your phone into the exercise equipment at the gym and the work that you do on the machine powers the phone or device you plugged in. This place is awesome and kind of unbelievable.
So thats my new home for the rest of the semester. I am very thankful to my job for providing this option for me.
