Survival of the Fittest

Survival of the Fittest

As previously mentioned in my last blog post, I now have my own apartment. Pretty soon after moving in, I discovered that there were a lot of things I would now have to learn how to do for myself. I would no longer have my mom or my roommates or my roommates’ boyfriends to kill spiders, hang shelving, and wake me up when my alarms are all accidentally set to silence.

Me being confused with what might be a screwdriver.

In order to prevent you from experiencing the same pain and trial and error that I’ve had to go through over the past few months, I decided to compile a list of all the essential skills I think could be helpful for anyone moving out of their home – be it to a dorm, their own apartment, or a place with roommates.

Without further ado, I’d like to present: Ellen’s Top 10 Master List of How to…

1. … unclog a toilet

2. … go grocery shopping

3. … hang up posters and pictures

4. … survive a zombie apocolypse

5. … order out

6. … have a roommate argument

7. … pack at the last minute

8. … cook in the microwave

9. … to set up utilities

10. … budget money

Me being confused with a hammer.

And, just a final note: While I’d like to pretend that my list of essential skills is pretty comprehensive. However, if you ever need more support, be sure to check out the Off-Campus Student Life office for more tips and tricks!
