Getting Out

        Monig to Ankeny proved to be more difficult that I first expected. I had been looking forward to moving out of the house for over four years, and wxpected it to be easy and fun. Moving turned out to be neither easy nor very fun, as I had hoped it would be.

        I took us four trips to Ankeny just to get our apartment. First, we had to look at different apartments. Then we had to sign a few papers and leave a deposit. Belmont Apartments decided to change the way it filed information. So, we had to go back again to sign a bunch of papers, bring a money order for the first month's rent, rip up the old deposit check, and pay a highter deposit.

        Nathan and I had to by at DMACC on the same day for a financial aid seminar. So, we planned to help each other take the thins up to the apartment. Lucky for me he had already taken all of his heavy furniture on a previous visit. I had a hide-a-bed couch, a love seat, a desk, and other smallitems to take up to the apartment. I arrived at the apartment before he did, and my parents and I got the desk, love seat, and other small items up the three flights of stairs.
