Reading the “Signs that you are settling down” thread reminded me of my first, cruddy apartment. We lived in the student ghetto part of town, everbody in the building was a student so it was like a 24/7 party that just moved from apartment to apartment. We lived right down the street from a Salvation Army thrift shop and people would frequently leave furniture out in front at night. If we saw something there better than what we had, we’d just take our old stuff over and exchange it for the new old stuff. I lived with two guys, so the decor was mostly stolen road signs, cardboard display units from the video store, and alcohol containers off all shapes and sizes. When it was time to move, it took me literally two days to clean all the stains out of the carpet.
So, what was your first apartment like?
