慶應の寮に引っ越し (Moving into the Keio Dorms)

Living in Tokyo was a great experience. There is always something to explore and although the city is small, the number of districts make it an endless concrete jungle begging to be explored.

On the 23rd I moved into the Keio University Dorms located in Yokohama. My room is very small with no frills, but it definitely gets the job done. I have my own refrigerator and bathroom, so those who want privacy need not worry!

One thing I don't understand is why International Students are sent to Yokohama while the campus is in Tokyo. My dormitory is over an hour away from campus! That means over two hours/day just going to and coming back from school. I am sure there is a reason (maybe rent in Tokyo is too expensive?), but two hours a day amounts to 40 hrs/month and more than 1 week of time spent just getting to and from my destination. Thinking about the long-run, I may have been better off staying in my Tokyo apartment. 

Alternatively, the new opportunities associated with living in an international dormitory are endless! New friends from all over the world, a new town to explore, and really cheap food (because most of the town is for college students and everyone knows we don't have any money)!
