Dorm memories

During my college days, I stayed at a ladies' dormitory. Yeah, it was sad to be away from home, but the dorm being along the Katipunan road definitely helped to make my stay there happy and enjoyable.

Back then, we weren't allowed to cook inside our rooms, except for microwave-heating, so naturally, the dormers had to go out to buy their food elsewhere. It was a good thing that you only have to go outside the dorm and you'll be facing more than a couple of restaurants already, all serving familiar home-cooked meals. Add a hundred more steps or so and you'll already have access to a strip of popular fast food chains along the highway. If the dormers had something else to do, like say, finish research papers, they could just order and ask their food to be delivered to the dormitory while they do their work facing their own computer monitors.

It really was fun staying at the dorm. The location of the dormitory definitely helped me in adjusting to living in a different place. But still, nothing beats staying at your own home, with your family and close friends. :)
