I have been living in a dorm room for two years now. My college makes freshman and sophomores stay in the dorms. I think it is the worst rule my college has because I had a terrible roommate last year. I asked the dean of the school if I would be allowed to leave my dorm and get a place on my own. The dean said no, so I was stuck in the dorms for the rest of last year. This year is my junior year and I couldn’t get my own place fast enough. I was so happy my parents were willing to help me out with paying for a place on my own. However, there was one problem with the apartment and that was the HVAC system. There was a heating system, but there wasn’t any cooling equipment. This meant that I would be sweating to death in my apartment during the summer months. I was complaining to my parents about the lack of cooling equipment and they offered to help me out again. For my birthday this year they gave me a gift card to have a small air conditioner window unit installed by a local HVAC company. My landlord didn’t have any problems with it as long as a HVAC company came and installed the air conditioner window unit. I knew that when the summer came I would so happy to have the air conditioner installed and I could not thank my parents enough for helping me out so much.
