<-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Hey, Frank. How's it going?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well...I just found out my roommate Jim is moving out of our off-campus apartment into a bigger place with a whole bunch of friends next semester.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Oh, really?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Does this mean you'll be living by yourself next semester?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. But that's OK, 'cause I really wanted to live alone next semester anyway-
I have to concentrate on my senior project for the history department.
I have a lot to write and I don't want any distractions.
The only major problem though is how I'll be getting to campus.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Oh, yeah?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> See, the apartment's a little far from campus.
And Jim has a car, and he gives me rides to and from campus every day.
But I can't afford a car now.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> So have you thought about taking public transportation-uh... the bus-to campus?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I have. The thing is that there's no bus going directly to the campus from that part of town. I'd have to change buses a couple of times on the way.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I see... and that could take a lot of time.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Right.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Hmm. Well, maybe you should move back into a dormitory on campus.
Request a single room. There's lots of them.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I thought about that.
You know, I could live alone and get my work done. But
I don't know...I would miss my apartment.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I know, but you've gotta make some choice.
