Sorry for the delay!

Hey everyone!!

Don’t worry I am alive just really busy!

 It feels like it has been forever since I have blogged… oh wait it has been! If you have not been following me from the start (honestly) its ok. My very first post I was told you that I was blogging for my one class. Well since that class was over I haven’t blogged! And trust me ALOT has gone on here at the apartment. I don’t want to give anything away, but you should really keep posted to see what has happened.  Hope you like it!!

Lacie’s Blog

Hi! I want to personally thank Jess for having me on her blog as a guest blogger, my name is Lacie Redmond. When reading all of her posts, I thought to myself, wow it must be crazy living with two other girls, all while going to college and working! (..I only have to live with my mom and two cats) I would defiantly have learned a lot more life lessons!What I have learned from Jess’s Blog really goes along with my last post about change. I think that reading Jess’s blog really has made me think of all of the different things you have to go through and learn when you move out on your own. Not only is she away from her family for the first time, but she also is living with two other girls! All I can say is good luck Jess and I know that this time in your life is exciting yet scary, but you will have a ton of live lessons to learn from this new chapter in your life!

And for those random intruder‘s Jess, remember, you live on the good side of State College!

Top ten Life lessons you learn while reading Jess’s blog

  • 10. Don’t plan on buying ice cream ANY time soon, the fridge is still broken.
  • 9. Yep, so is the door.
  • 8. You can always get a new key, or 5.
  • 7. Well its almost the middle of November and your not insane.
  • 6. Learning the fire departments’ phone number
  • 5. Bugs come in the size of small cats
  • 4. You have no privacy what so ever!
  • 3. You now know that choosing a new roommate is harder than it seems.
  • 2. You do not need both a can of hairspray and a pocket knife to scare away a/an invisible “intruder” only chose one.
  • 1. Dance parties are on Wednesdays.

Thanks again Jess!! Good luck with everything!

Guest Blogger

Sometime in the near future I will be having a guest blogger. Her name is Lacie Redmond, and she is a good friend of mine from school. She is writing her blog on Life Lessons. After reading what she has to say on my blog I hope that you take the time to go and read her blog. Lacie has had her ups and downs and has learned a lot along the way. She used these experiences to start a blog which I think is an awesome idea. Feel free to tell me what you think.

Quote of the night: “Get 911 on Speed Dial!”

I was sitting in Amy ‘s room doing our nightly gossip while Leah was in the shower. I started telling my story and then…. I stopped in the middle of my sentence. Amy  quietly asked if I heard the same noise. Before I could answer her, we both heard the noise again it sounded like foot steps downstairs.  Without any hesitation, we locked her door then ran into her bathroom locking the door behind us. We ran into the shower room (where Leah was still showering). Amy was pulling the one door shut while I was pushing the other door shut. We started whispering to Leah (who was still in the shower freaking out) about what just happened. Amy handed Leah her towel then she got out of the shower to call her mom- since she was the only one who had their phone. Go figure the one in the shower is the only one that has a phone… She called her mom, who told us to

call 911.

 Once we finally calmed down from laughing and freaking out at the same time, I decided to check the appartment. I told Leah,

“Get 911 on speed dial, incase I die. Then please call my mom.”

 What would you grab in a girls bathroom to protect yourself???? I grabbed hairspray and a pocket knife, and Leah and Amy made fun of me. I figured I could do some serious damage with the mixture. After I went downstairs and no one was there we just laughed about the whole thing in the living room. Got to love living with girls…

5 Tips on Picking the Perfect Roommate

I have to say now that my roommates and I are all getting along, I still get worried every time that I try to find another roommate. I went on different search engines to find websites to post that we are looking for a new roommate. I think that I found more horror stories than anything else, and I mean HORROR stories. Some people should just live with their parents and not even try to go out on their own! But I found a website that I think that anyone looking for a roommate needs to look at,  5 Tips on picking the perfect roommate. I just changed some of the wording around but you can go to the website and read it for yourself.

  1. Get a roommate that is like you. If you are not a clean freak try to find a roommate that is not one as well. That way if you leave something around it will not spark up a fight or anything like that.
  2. Try to find a roommate that has a job. Chances are that if they do not have a job or in between jobs, they are not going to be able to pay rent and/or the utility bills.
  3. Find a roommate that does NOT do illegal drugs… This one speaks for itself!
  4. If you like to party find a roommate that likes to party, but if you are more of a quite person try to find a roommate that is quite as well. If you find someone that is opposite of you drama will begin.
  5. (I don’t really agree with this one) Do a background check and reference checks. Basically make sure that they do not have a criminal background.

 

The refrigerator that works a little too well!

Yes our refrigerator is running and NO I am not going to go catch it.

Our fridge is working a little too well right now, I think that it is broken but it is working though. It has been freezing all of our food. We will buy milk one night and by the time that mornings rolls around it is frozen solid.  We talked to our landlord and they told us to turn it down. Of course we tried that we are no that dumb. The problem is if we turn the fridge down it also turns the freezer down as well, so that means that our ice cream starts to melt then. NOT GOOD!! If you have any suggestions on what we should do please let me know! We are losing to much food cause of this problem.
