As I scroll through the lists of apartments available in Iowa City, growing more and more overwhelmed by each new page, all of a sudden it hits me: is this how it is to be an adult? To have to find a house, figure out rent, pay taxes, get a job and all that jazz?
WHOA NOW. Since when did I classify into this category?-
Okay, yes, technically I am an adult since I’m 18 but still wow. This is a lot of responsibility for someone who’s still relatively new to the university scene and I already have to look for an apartment and figure out the stuff that my parents do?- Even as I’m typing this, I can see my parents shake their head with that experienced look in their eyes like “It was going to happen eventually! I told you so!-”
But still, please, I’m quite miserable with all this money and stuff. I don’t even know what an amenity is. Anemone? Sea-anemone? Nemo? Therefore, like Nemo, I’m looking for my own home?
Nemo or not I have to get all this stuff sorted out before February (yay). Wish me luck!
