Anna Get The Hell Out by Frances Part 2
It seems like yesterday that Frances was suggesting that Anna get the Hell out. Well not really but it was a bit of fun to blame her. Anna's senior year(it doesn't seem that long ago does it) we all came up with a list of things that Anna would need for her dorm. Here's where the fun all started and here is the finished list. The list that we came up with is the most complete that I have seen and I can say that the only thing that we had to go to the store for after we moved Anna in was food. From what I understand that is unheard of, everyone usually makes a few trips to Walmart to get the forgotten items.
Anyways, I'm here because I need your assistance again. Anna researched an apartment. She actually came to me with figures, which in itself is shocking! She is not a numbers kind of girl. She and her current roommate Becca(she is actually sane, on the dean's list, and responsible. I never thought it could happen and that Anna wouldn't drive her mad) are going to rent an apartment. I wasn't real sold on this but the apartment borders the school property and still uses EIU's security. It is also $2000 a year cheaper even with food and utilities. Hey, did I tell you that it was $2000 a year cheaper. That was a good selling point. She will have the apartment for 11.5 months instead of the 9 months she is in the dorm. She said that she might stay down there and work this summer if she can find a job for 40+hrs a week. Anyways, the apartment is furnished with a couple of beds and dressers, a kitchen table, and a couple of couches. That's about it. So if you don't mind do you think that we could put out heads together and come up with another list since we are so good at it. I figure that we can break it down by each room.
I figure since I have 9 months and a generous family, I can get most of this stuff for her for free. Thank you so much and I'll post the list when we finish to help anyone else that has college students that are just starting out.
Have I told you lately that I love you,
Frances-I didn't steal your picture, I just borrowed.
