Farewell to the dormitories and the cafeteria food! Today was my last day in my dorm, so as a goodbye present I made my roommate and her boyfriend caramel apples, per request. Living on campus was a fun experience, but one that I realized just wasn't important enough for me to spend so much money on. $13,000 a year to live 30 minutes away from my own house is just about as expensive as buying a new car -- so that's what we did, I now have a new car. I've been applying for jobs all around Marin County close to my university to help my mother pay it off.
I'm definitely going to miss my roommate, but I'm sure I'll be back at her room everyday between classes anyhow. To make up for leaving I've already spoiled her with homemade cheesecake, fudge, caramel apples and promised to make cupcakes for her boyfriend's birthday once school gets back in on January 19th (my birthday, actually, his is on the 3rd).
