Incoming 1Ls / Re: Roommates v. Living Alone
« on: March 22, 2006, 11:25:08 AM »
I was contemplating having a roommate LS because a friend of mine is currently in the LS I will be attending and wants me to room with her.

However, I have been living by myself for two years now and I can still remember my days of roommates back in college.  I have decided that the perks of having a roommate (splitting costs) do not outweigh the perks of living alone.  Living alone means you can have company when you want to and not have it when you don't feel like it.  Lounge whenever and however you want around your apartment.  Won't get distracted by having someone else that you can talk to when you should be studying.  Plus since we aren't living together I can always go visit her when I need a study break. 

Plus I have learned from experience that being cool with someone and hanging out with them is NOT the same as living with them-stay good friends by not becoming roommates.

I would encourage anyone who can afford it to live by themselves- you really can't go wrong. 

I am waiting for my aid packet to see how much money I am going to have to come up with minus the scholarship they offered.  Does anyone know if you can ask to postpone paying the seat deposit until after I receive the packet?

Recieved my acceptance letter from USC and my scholarship notice from Mercer making them my definate choice.  Now I have to wait for the decision on my full scholarship from Mercer...patience is getting hard. 

Got an invite to a reception at King and Spaulding for next week for Mercer's class of 2006.

Everyone that I know in that is already in law school told me to relax and enjoy my family and friends. 

I am going to quit working in June (that is going to be a weird).  Then my son and I will lounge and travel a little.  A week in Texas, a few days in DC, some days at Myrtle Beach. 

And also tie up some last minute business.
