I found a real treasure from a prior occupant once. In the corner of the closet I found a stack of about 6 of those dirty porn novels. I won't name the titles, but they were all about incest. I wish they made Purell back in those days. I would have doused the whole place.

I hate teaching all of my new neighbors where they can't park every year.

One doesn't have this problem with the dorms, but for me, just calling all the utility companies to switch things over is the worst part.

For me it was the other people in the dorm, but I did not discover how bad they were for a couple of weeks.

The worst part is not finding a treasure from the prior occupants. I once found $25.00 worth of quarters when I stayed in a hotel. Since then, I've always hoped one day to find a real jackpot. I guess I need to buy a metal detector.

Moving in or moving out, it's the moving.

Back when I was in college? Choosing which chick to hit on first.

Now? No idea, but I am thinking of following the Australian Womens Roller Derby Circuit. Nothing like fishnets, skates, bruises, and an Aussie accent.

It's like arriving with your pants on.

The worst part of move in is that we have 10,000 freshmen with 1 or 2 parents and a couple of brothers and sisters for probably about 40,000 more people in town who have absolutely no idea where they are going. Seriously, don't drive anywhere for the next two weeks, you are taking your very life in your hands...

I can't believe nobody helped Anika. Are guys blind these days, or just stupid?

paying the bill.

Moving in was a piece of cake...kid got to come up Friday. She is "working" today.

Dodging bullets and the full cans of beer that the neighbors threw at me. Having to keep running outside so the new neighbors quit stealing stuff out of my Camaro. Falling down drunk with a box full of glassware. That was just a really bad experience. Plus, I usually get evicted after about 2 months so I'll just have to go through it again.

Finding that you just moved all your stuff in the wrong dorm.

Unpacking all of the boxes. I moved in February, and I still have four or five that I haven't unpacked. Then there's all of the sorting of what was in the boxes and is now in piles on tables and shelves. One of these days....
