    The Living

    I live in Butler Housing with my girlfriend - labeled by the Housing Department as my �domestic partner.� It�s a two bedroom and is the only on-campus housing that will accommodate our cat, Lola. It feels like a trailer park for graduate students. It�s a long walk from campus but there�s a shuttle service - we�ll see how that goes. There is a community room for parties, a mini-laundry mat, and a computer cluster with 10 or so computers. The kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures are new but the floor is musty basement style linoleum.

    • huh? wait what? the university considers your cat Lola your "domestic partner"?
      let me tell you something, Ag, the place doesn;t just feel like a trailer park...it looks like one.

      Thanks for the encouraging words. I went from a 1200 s.f. apt on Clark St. in Chicago to this 600 s.f. trailer park in the suburbs - it was a difficult move.
