Finals are in the near future, but it's hard to focus on flash cards with the thoughts of summer taking over my brain. Like many of my fellow collegians, the idea of leaving Chicago and going back home to Minnesota was just not as appealing as the idea of a summer in the Chi. So I'm staying right here in Chicago, doing some internship stuff and nannying in the evenings.
My group of friends is pretty mixed between guys and girls, and now that we're upperclassmen and live off-campus, it seems totally normal for them to share houses. In fact, it seems quite splendid. But would it be quite the same to co-habitate with a manly man in that closet I used to affectionately consider my room?
Two weeks into the semester and most of my friends are already sick enough of their new roommates to have practically moved in with their boyfriends. All this shuffle got me to wondering - wouldn't it be easier if they could all just live with the boys the way they almost are now?
