Life Lesson #728: Pay your natural gas bill

I’ve been living in my same house off campus for over two and a half years right now and it’s never been better. Over the years, I’ve crafted my room to be exactly how I want it. I finally put a hook on the back of my door to hold my jacket. Last semester I brought my keyboard from home. My sister Anne just gave me some vinyl record picture frames so I could hang up some favorite LP’s. It’s basically all coming together. My room, finally, feels like my room. My house is awesome.

But not all bits of off-campus living are so sweet. Take today for example. I woke up this morning freezing. Why do you ask? I got my heat turned off because I forgot to pay the natural gas bill. Renting a house takes a lot of responsibility, so if you’re not ready to take on such a challenge, make sure your housemates are.

The benefits of living off-campus in my opinion surely cancel out the negatives, but be sure you know what you’re getting into before you sign that lease. Trust me.

It could be worse though. I have no heat, but it’s randomly a 70 degree day in February. Life ain’t so bad, anyway.
