It is finally that time of year! The weather has become a steady(ish) cold, and San Marcos is lit with lights and feels like the holidays. These past two weeks have been intense with classes ending, studying for finals and all of the end-of-the year hoopla. But instead of writing about finals and my struggle to study, I want to tell you about my apartment-searching adventures that have taken place the last couple of days.
To all of you incoming freshman, dorm life really isn’t all that bad. You get a meal plan, and you meet your best friends. Come winter break, though, you start thinking about your sophomore year, and you are ready to have your own bedroom, bathroom and be able to cook your own food. The last couple of days, my friend Emma and I drove around San Marcos looking for own new home away from home for next year. We made a list of places we wanted to check out, but while touring the city we found SO MANY we didn’t even know about. There is no shortage of places to live in San Marcos! Emma and I have narrowed down our list to four places, and now we need to show them to our other friends we are going to live with. It was nice to break away from studying to search for a new home.
It has been one heck of a semester. There is no way I have been here only three and a half months! Time really does fly when you are having fun. Texas State has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I hope everyone has a great winter break, and don’t forget to keep reading the blog next semester! I am sure that the other bloggers and I will have no shortage of things to write about!
