1st year: Cooper Glen Apartments up on Locust w/ a roommate who was eventually kicked out for taking a dump in the hot tub. We had a morning final in World Lit (Lyceum), then went to a Rangers day game that was also Dollar Hot Dog day. Went crazy on dogs, then came back and stopped at the Howdy Doody 7-12 on Locust with my buddy's fake ID... Then, full of hot dogs, beer, and the white russians we made (Lebowski had just come out), we hung out in the hot tub in the summer heat for hours. He wasn't allowed back on the premises after that 🤷♂️
2nd year: Ramsgate down on Bernard, small one bedroom. The place was old as hell even then (1999 or so), but by god it was my own place and had a racquetball court on site!! I know it's called something else now, one of the many places in Little D with a trendy nightclub sounding ass name.
Years 3-4.5: Pace's Crossing off 288 and Colorado. This place was the best. Wall sized mirror in the dining room, and a little "study" with french doors off the living room where i set up my desk and blueberry iMac. Pretty much lived my best life at this place... Did all my NTTV Sports stuff, worked part time at the Hastings right down Colorado, and I took years off my life eating at Red Pepper's twice a week. Did the Y2K new year's here, and my first year I dated a redhead hooters girl who's now a damn doctor. I sure effed that one up. The last few months I met a blonde who lived next-door and Jefferson Commons, and she ended up as wife #1. Really shoulda stuck with Hooters... that's a lesson for the kids out there. But anyway, hell yeah Pace's Crossing!
