I am starting my first year of college and am excited to get out of the house and live on my own. I won’t have to tell anyone where I am going or what time I will be home anymore. I am less excited about the heavier workload that comes along with college level classes but I’m sure I will get used to it. One thing that I have not gotten used to is the communal bathroom that my dorm room has for all the students living there. I don’t think I am being over critical when I say the sinks, toilets, and showers are down right unacceptable. Of the five sinks in the bathroom only two of them have working hot water, the other three will only produce cold water regardless of the handle you turn. The toilets are no better; one day they won’t flush and the next they won’t stop running and eventually the whole bathroom floods. This becomes particularly annoying because it’s not like there is any place else to shower and get ready for class. And don’t even get me started on the showers. One minute they will be the perfect temperature and the next moment steaming hot water comes out and forces you to step out of the stream. It gets worse if you are late getting up because after everyone else has showered there is hardly any hot water left. On top of all that the shower on the very end doesn’t even drain so no one uses it.
