Homeless and dorm-less

Posted on Updated on

As a college student, you realize the importance of your dorm keys and phone very early in the year. The one day you forget your dorm room keys and your phone somewhere, everything in the universe will go wrong!  And you will be sleeping very alone from 2am to however long it takes for one of your roommates to wake up in the morning.

And if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to bang on your door to wake up your roommates at 2am just to let you back in, but you really want to sleep on a nice warm bed…  So…you’ll go to a hall mates room and bang on their door to wake them up at 2am, but then you’ll leave an hour later because you don’t want to be a burden.

And then, you’ll walk up and down the hall feeling like the victim of a horror movie until you’ll finally suck it up and just sleep outside your door with one arm in your jacket and the other is on your face to protect you from the bright light in the hall. You wrap your scarf three times around your feet to keep yourself warm, and you pray this won’t last too long. By 6am, your roommate comes out thinking, “What the …?” and all you want to do really is jump under the covers of your bed and sleep all day.

Nothing could make you more thankful for a bed that keeps you warm and lets you dream than a night as a homeless dorm-less college student.
