Today, December 17, I got off the train at the Dreamwood stop. I brushed the hair out of my face and followed the directions to City Community College. It's not the best school or the best area or the best city, but it's cheap. And that's what I need. Like the town, today was dreary and grey, but I am determined to make the best of the situation.
Because City doesn't have dormitories, they said that I could get a deal at Dreamwood Terrace. They gave me my key to 1C. The apartment comes furnished with a bed, a couch, a dresser, and a desk, so all I had to do was unpack my suitcase of clothes, make my bed, and put up my posters. I heard a knock on the door. I was surprised since I have moved away from everyone I know. It was the landlord, Fred, and his goose, Phred, to welcome me to the building and let me know that the $400 rent is due on the 7th of each month.
With that, I went out to find a job. Two steps out of my building, I saw a "Help Wanted" sign in the Sunny Side Up diner. Flo, the older woman at the counter, explained that she has worked at the diner with her husband for the last 40 years, but now, she's looking for someone to work part time. Perfect.
I was exhausted from my trip and the start of my new life. All I wanted was to go home and binge Netflix for hours. As soon as I walked into my room, the power went off. 7:02 and nothing to do except finish my diary and sleep.
Well, that's it.
