Most interesting home you’ve lived in?

“As an intern, I stayed in this really run-down basement in a house. The whole place was super dank because it was the basement, and it didn’t have good lighting. The room was so small that it barely fit a tiny bed, a tiny desk, and a pocket-sized wardrobe–there was no empty floor space. By today’s standards, it was the size of a closet. The bathroom was poorly insulated, and the kitchen was just a place to heat up food. But, the room was warm enough and kept me dry. Because of that experience, I really appreciated the places I lived in afterwards.”
