Shared warmth

It is mid-January, and I haven’t had my heaters on in days. I’ve actually opened my windows during the day to cool the place down. Temps have been in the 30s and above during the day, in the single digits and teens during the night.

Because I live on the third floor, I believe the heat from other apartments comes to me.

That is one very nice thing about living in an apartment.

Even a dog doesn’t destroy where it sleeps

This is a small picture of why it’s frustrating to live where I do.

A look at the landing on the second floor of my apartment building.

The place never ever looks to be in good repair.

As you can see, some out of control drunkards like to kick the electric heaters in the hallways. Right away, I just assumed that people would accidentally hit these things as they were moving into their apartments. But I don’t believe that anymore. I think they just like to cause damage.

I regret that I didn’t get a photo of the most shocking destruction I’ve seen, so all I can do is describe it.

In the front stairwell, suddenly there was a hole in the wall about as big as a broomstick. I think someone may have done it accidentally. It took more than a week for the apartment manager to get it fixed.

The very next day, there was a another hole in the stairwell wall — in the exact same place as the first hole! Plus, there was another hole in the other side of the stairwell wall. This was obviously no random act.

Who would do that?? They’re worse than dogs.
