I thought I would prefer living in an apartment as opposed to a dorm room.
Even though the dorm room cost a lot more money a month, I had more freedom living on campus at my own college.
It’s a lot harder sometimes dealing with the rules enacted by apartment complexes. There are strict hours for noise which typically ends at 9:00 p.m. on the weekdays. I’ve had noise complaints called on me for having my TV on slightly too loud while watching a movie on a Saturday night. It sucks when I want to bring home a day to have a nice time at home and have to worry about tiptoeing around the hallways outside lest one of the older residents decides to make a complaint. One of the more annoying rules at my apartment complex regards marijuana use. I understand why they don’t want people smoking cigarettes on their balconies because the aromas from tobacco are very strong. I’ve had other kids at college smoking 50 yards from my dorm room and still smell it when I open my door. But what I don’t understand is how this apartment complex thinks it can stop medical marijuana users from using their medicine in their rooms. I just use a vaporizer because I know it’s hard to smell it compared to smoking cannabis. If they can’t catch me doing it, I’m not going to worry about it. I know the police don’t care because I’ve talked to cops in this town and they only do something if the person is using cannabis illegally.
