and I went apartment shopping this weekend (more to come on that later), and this place we checked out reminded me of an old-school hotel.
By far the biggest benefit the students who lived there always mentioned was the daily maid service.
My parents decided to get a divorce which meant that mom, my brother, and I were to move back to the states.
We spent the summer and 3 months of the following school year (9th grade) living in a hotel. I hit the hottub EVERY morning, got to chat with the maintainance guy every day while he did his pool duties.
Back then cable modems were just coming out and i was left out of that as dial up AOL was my only option in the hotel room while i was living in the hotel and couldnt wait to get into a house so i could get a low ping while playing half life deathmatch or better yet counterstrike.
Although i truly believe my skills in the game went up as i had to much better predict what folks were doing when they had a 150-200 ping and mine was in the 400-500 range.
