Donna dreamed how she would come home lay down on her couch; watch the Super Bowl game 37; or watch her favorite DVD A Walk to Remember and eat caramel popcorn that she did not have to share. She woke up to the sound of her mothers voice These dishes are stuck together in red sauce, the counters have enough crumbs to donate the Salvation Army. It is Saturday morning get up out of bed and clean up this filthy room and the kitchen. Reality set in and Donna realized she was far away from her home in the sky; at least thats what it felt like. Donna got up as her mother instructed to clean the kitchen and her room, which was split into three parts that allowed room for clothes to be in the corners, under her sleigh bed in her bathroom and also in the closet to the brim. She brought her CD player with her to listen to her favorite song by Yolanda Adams I believe I can fly. It was a way of escape to any place but here.
Donna majored in History at Galenway University through a work-study grant she received from financial aid. She enjoys reading and learning about the past. She also had a minor in Political Science, but unsure of the career she wanted to pursue local diner on campus. The grant allowed her to work at Galens, a local campus diner for students, as a waitress. She worked in the evenings and took her classes in the mornings. The job helps her to pay for tuition and books, and give her extra money for the weekend. It also allowed her to keep her savings of $2500, which she earned babysitting a few nights a week for the women in her church.
She walks in the diner around 5:00pm and heads for the locker room to change in to her white and blue, the school colors of course, uniform with ruffles on the bottom. She types her ID number into the computer, and begins wiping tables and taking orders. After the students leave from eating and talking about their latest grade on the quiz and the football game on Friday, she walks over to clean up and notices the Galen gazette, a student newspaper, left on the table. It has articles about campus meeting, the sports editorials for many different sports in the fall season, an also apartment listings. She sat down since its close to her break and looks at the paper. She looks for apartments that are between $200-$300, which is dirt-cheap for students. Magnolia Village, located about three miles from the campus, has an ad the size of my hand stating if you want convience and luxury with style then come to Magnolia Village. It sounds great she thought. She decided to go after work.
She arrivs at the apartments and is amazed by the beauty and form of the complex. They have three storied buildings with the top shaped like a cathedral, the bricks were sided with vibrant red brick siding, and each aparment section was yellow, blue, green, and tan. It also has an exercise room, car wash, and a pool with a slide and club house for parties and gatherings. She decided to go in the leasing office and get an application. She went asked for an application and a woman by the name of Lisa helped with the application and said, Ill would be glad to show you the apartment and your name is? Donna said, Donna and I go to Galenway University as a freshman year. Im looking for an apartment I can stay in on my own and pay for myself. Lisa said, You have come to the right place. We were built with the University in mind. Come with me in the go cart and Ill show you the model. She rode along as Lisa drove the cart, like a maniac on a mission, swiveling in and out of curves and lanes. She parks and the first idea that comes to her is Im alive! Im alive! as if it could have been her last day on earth.
They went inside the model and Donna could not believe her eyes. There is plush berber carpeting in the living room and dining room with a chandelier. The patio has a white picket fence. There are brand-new appliances such as a microwave, stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator that was all produced by GE. The kitchen also has lots of counter space with a long bar. The Master is gigantic with the bathroom on the inside, which has a Jacuzzi and balled light bulbs above the mirror. There is walk in closets with iron shelves and unbelievable space. The windows are tall and elegant with white blinds. The linen closet has shelves down to the floor. There is also a utility room with space large enough for a washer and dryer. Lisa said The apartment is only two hundred a month a total electric. That is enough for Donna she is in love with Magnolia Village and started the application process. Lisa said Donna it will take twenty-four hours to see if you are approved. Since you have no credit, a student, and no criminal record you will be highly approved. The deposit $100.00 and the application is free. Donna completed the application within seconds, and gave lisa the money for the deposit and took her card to call her the next day.
After leaving the apartment complex, she drove home to tell her mother who had second thoughts about her daughter moving on her own. She has not lived on her own before. Ser said it may not be a good idea for you to move just yet. Give yourself more time to get used to going to school and paying a bill before you take on more than you can handle. Donna felt hurt because she thought her mother would be happy, but instead she is explaining the other side of living independently. She went in her room, laid on her bed, and grabbed her a favorite teddy bear, Mr Snapple, she had received when she was a child ,as her eyes filled with tears of discouragement. She thought of how unfair her mother was, and that if the apartment was approved she would leave immediately
