"The Mormon Mansion"--well, it's not really the celestial mansion I always dreamed of, in fact it is more like the Telestial version. It is like I described Ghetto-Fabulous...the shopping cart out front really captures the "ghetto" category, while the large white columns put it more into the "fabulous" category...hence the term "Ghetto-Fabulous". But hey rent is cheap...the area...not the greatest but compared to what? It's Anchorage! It's not a trailer park, there is no TY-VEX and exposed plywood...no blue tarps! So it's really not that bad.
We don't have a couch...and in the "Mormon Mansion" Fashion we have the epidemy of all chasity couches!! The retired church chairs! I thought BYU-Approved Housing was bad...but wow! I guess Jed and I will have to get used to it ;)
Overall it is really not that bad...it is really spacious and it has a really homie feel to it. I felt really good about my decision to live there.
