Moving on up
A year’s worth of college puts you on a separate plane than the eager fresh faces that’ve just been let off the parental leash for the first time in their lives. There’s a wisdom that comes with knowing the ropes — like avoiding classes that meet more than twice a week, or where to find grease at any godforsaken hour. You’ve also made friends (some probably for life) and finally have a say over where you live and who you live with. Craft a smart plan, lean on your parents, and with a little bit of luck your new home might actually be a house. You’ve earned the extra space, now make it your own.
