I moved to this northern region to attend undergraduate school and I never left.
- I even finished my master program at another college in the same city.
Even though I never planned to plant my roots here, that’s sort of how everything fell into place in the end. I certainly love that all of my friends happen to live in this area as well. Some have moved away for graduate school or for work, but most of my college acquaintances are still near the school. Despite this, I have started making new friends with all of the remodelling I’ve been doing to this condominium that I recently purchased. I had a carpenter in here expanding one of my rooms after building shelves all over the place for varying items and collectables. I also hired an electrician to create new light fixtures and to fix problems with the old breaker box that came with the condo. The most recent change I made was with my central heating system. We get a lot of cold weather in the winter in the northwest. The existing furnace in this condo was electric, but I hate electric fan-forced heating systems. I decided to replace it with a new hydronic heating system. These boilers send heated water to radiator units around your home. They’re fast at producing heat and unbelievably more efficient in the process. Best of all, the installation techs were extremely nice and easy to chat with during the boiler installation process. They’re not the most traditional form of friends, but they were fun to talk to nonetheless.
