When moving away from the dorms and into an actual space of your own there is a list of things you need to do that you don’t even realize. Living in the dorms includes the perks of providing food, bathroom supplies and smaller spaces with much less decorating to worry about. Although living in a new space provides much more privacy and an opportunity to get an idea of what your life in the real world will be like. In order to make the space your own you need to start decorating, which is usually both fun and stressful. In college this can be costly as well since majority of the college student population has about a million other costs to worry about.
