My summer has now officially begun! I have turned in all my papers, moved out of my old apartment, and I am currently in God’s country (Missouri) for a long weekend. My new apartment, well okay summer sublet, is totally awesome. I moved down to the Capitol Hill area of Denver, which definitely has a lot more “flavor” than the University Boulevard neighborhood where I used to live. I now see a lot more homeless people than luxury vehicles. However, don’t let me downplay it, my neighborhood is nice and feels completely safe. I live really close to the Denver Botanical Gardens – it’s definitely not gang territory.
Anyway, I kind of look at this as a test run for Cap Hill. I don’t know if I’ll be in Denver this fall due to various internship situations, but I wanted to use this summer to see if I like living far away from DU. So far I love it. Now I feel like I live in real Denver and not DU undergraduate land. Thus far, the new apartment is working out great, and while I do have one roommate the apartment is huge and we have completely different schedules. A tour of my summer place? But of course!
