I recently moved out of my old apartment and into a new one. The new place is more expensive, but it comes with perks like a balcony, dishwasher, and a washer and dryer. I haven’t had the luxury of my own washer and dryer for over seven years. I had to go to a Laundromat that was three blocks away from my house every couple of weeks. My laundry routine consisted of skating to the Laundromat, dumping all my clothes into one washing machine instead of separating them by color because it costs eight quarters to run each one, then skating back home for thirty minutes, then skating back to the Laundromat, throwing my clothes into the dryer and putting five quarters into dryer, then skating back home for thirty minutes, then skating back to pick up my laundry, then going back home to fold it. It would take over an hour, cost over three bucks, and take traveling over eighteen blocks just to do one load of laundry. Now I can walk halfway down the hallway to do my laundry. And I can separate my colors and delicates. And I don’t have to worry about forgetting it or people stealing my clothes. And I can save my quarters for gumball machines again. Life is good, all thanks to the washer and dryer in my new apartment.
