I thought I had everything worked out and figured out for moving next week, but I guess I don’t.
I’m not sure if I do or not at this moment anyway. I just was checking things on my college’s website earlier today in the afternoon to see when I could go check in and see my apartment so I could decide what to take and move up there with me.
Well, lo and behold, while I’m checking the website, guess what I find, ooo, made me so upset, they’ve assigned me a freakin roommate!!! Now, I know, some of you probably think that’s no big deal, but it is to me.
The thing is that they told me and led me to believe I had a one bedroom apartment that I was going to be living in by myself all this time. I asked them if I had roommates or not in one e-mail and they told me I shouldn’t have roommates and we exchanged some other e-mails and info between myself and the stupid housing office that seemed pretty straight forward to me in saying that I’d be in a one bedroom apartment by myself.
Now, all of a sudden, they’ve assigned me a roommate. Of course, it’s not anyone I know considering I don’t know a lot of people where I’m going to school yet anyway, but ooo I’m so upset.
Oh and I was really ticked off earlier when I first discovered this crap so I e-mailed the stupid housing office about it to try to figure out what was going on. Now, get this, this upset me even more, they sent me a reply to my e-mail asking what the heck was going on because they’d told me and led me to believe I was going to be by myself in a one bedroom apartment and their reply was I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, but we don’t rent out any apartments without having at least two people in them.
Then they said and really we don’t even rent out any single/studio apartments at all so I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. But it was like the tone of their reply in the e-mail and all that it was like I felt like/got the impression they were really saying, well, I’m sorry, but I don’t even know where you’d get that idea from anyway. Um, hello, stupid housing people, you gave me that idea!!!
My parents and family that read and heard what I’d said and had been told in reply even thought and were led to believe I’d be in a one bedroom apartment by myself – stupid, idiotic housing people – so freakin annoying!!!
So, where does that leave me? Well, besides majorly ticked and irritated at the stupid housing people for misleading and misrepresenting things to me, it leaves me with a few options, but not necessarily the options I would like to have.
Okay so all the options aren’t that bad and something could work and not be a total disaster. Although I am very much against staying in my present situation rooming with a stranger and such, not necessarily because I’m against having a roommate, but rather because I don’t really want to be involved in any more dealings with these stupid housing people now. I want out and away from these dumb housing people so I’m having to see if I can find something else and what I can do on top of everything else at the last minute this week now. Oh, what fun for me.
I have found out what I would have to do to cancel my contract and leave my present planned living arrangements. I am waiting for some more answers to questions from the dumb housing office also though. I also have found a few options so far of other more appealing, seemingly better places/situations I’d rather live in though.
I’ve found a few other apartments I could live in off campus, but I’d have to share, but I’d have my own bedroom and bathroom and access to laundry in the apartment. I won’t have my own bathroom or access to laundry in the apartment in the housing I’m suppose to be in unless I change.
I’ve also found a few possible apartment communities to call and check with that might have some studio/one bedroom apartments available that would be my ideal choice if I could switch to that, but we’ll have to see. I’m also planning to see if I can check on some things or find anything else out tomorrow after church.
I’ll be contacting the stupid housing people again on Monday by e-mail, phone and possibly in person also. I plan to go to the college to talk to them in person, see what I can figure out and go around the town to see if I can find other available apartments that I haven’t found online. I’ll probably also pick up a local newspaper and such while I’m there and see what more I can find.
I’m going to do whatever I can to figure some other living arrangements out that would work better for me than what the stupid housing people have assigned. I have a week, not much time, but it’s something and there should be something that I can find. I should be able to figure or work something out this week so it’ll all work out in the end by the time school starts next week, but I don’t enjoy the added major stress I have now with dealing with this added task along with all the other things I have to do too.
Stupid, freakin, annoying housing people is all I have to say right now – argh!!!
