Well, long story short, I changed apartments and am much more comfortable with my new living situation. New living situation meaning a new room in a different building (thankfully not far from the old one).
So in this new room, there are some storage areas that are kind of hard to get to. Part of the ceiling is lower than the ceiling of the rest of the room, and there are doors that allow you to store stuff above the lower part of the ceiling.
A friend and I were looking at what was already in there; it is apparently pretty common for people to forget things there. Here is what we found:
Random wood parts for something. I’ll find something to do with them, because that is what engineers do, right?
Looks like the previous occupant used IKEA furniture. And liked buying costume parts?
…and was part of a three-person costume group that dressed up as vampires for Halloween.
It is apparently common here for occupants of a student apartment to leave things behind for future occupants to use. (or to forget things, or leave them for others to use/throw away). Not sure what I’m going to do with all this stuff. Any ideas?
