Sophie Apartment, Sophie, Suite Leave a Comment

If it isn’t apparent by the title, I absolutely love Star Wars. I always carry my stylish R2D2 mug with me. My R2D2 mug has been with me since since high school. I’ve drank coffee from it in my home in Denver, my freshman dorm in Parkside IRC, my internship apartment in Bakersfield, and my sophomore apartment at Cardinal Gardens. …

It’s pretty weird to think that only a year ago, I was living in an on-campus dorm filled with freshman, eating at EVK (before they renovated it- its so swanky now!), and randomly meeting new people everyday in the elevator.
