Dorming at college is not exactly easy; There are various perks, of course, such as living with your friends, cheap housing, and convenient dining options. Still, it was a load of fun times too! However, there are various difficulties as well. Learning to live independent of your parents is undoubtedly difficult. It is also taxing to live with a total stranger, and there are small inconveniences, like heating and cooling mishaps, that make it a bit challenging as well.
For example, during my freshman year, the oil furnace was being repaired one weekend. During the repair, the school had to turn off the oil furnace. It stayed off for more than two whole days in the middle of the coldest Winter weekend. It was freezing! Many students complained to the school board and took the matter as far as filing regular complaints. I genuinely would’ve done the same, but I made it through that weekend, thanks to a gift from our mom. The only thing that got me through this was my heated blanket. This blanket was so powerful that it kept me hot all night despite the absence of heat.
I almost forgot about the broken oil furnace at night because the blanket was keeping me so warm. I was certainly overheating a few times. I was beyond thankful that my mom sent me this blanket when I first moved into our dorm. I did not know it was necessary, but Mom always knows best! After those few days, the oil furnace was up and functioning again. All was back to normal on our school campus.
