I saw one apartment with carpet from the 70s,
one huge apartment (for $475) that had only one window...and space for three separate dance parties (if only we were in to dance parties),
one apartment that had an enormous space heater hanging from the ceiling...the kind you use to heat a warehouse,
one apartment that had a grungy shower that hadn't been cleaned in a year and a shower head that maybe worked?? 5 years ago??
And then it turned out that the university was offering a bit less than we thought they'd be offering (which makes sense, of course -- Brett's just starting out, after all). And I wondered, how did my parents raise 8 kids and buy a big house, all on a starting teacher's salary???
Things must have been cheaper back then
(or maybe it was because the house needed a lot of work?)
living room, kitchen, bedroom, all in one
