    <-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Hey, Jim. How's it going?
    Got plans for the summer yet?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> [Excited] Yeah, actually...
    I got a month long internship in a town about three hours from here...
    working at a magazine. Pretty excited.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> An internship with a magazine? Very cool.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I'm excited to get to know a new area too.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> So have you found a place to stay for the month?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Actually, I have.
    But I'm gonna keep my apartment here on campus while I'm gone-
    keep paying rent on it-
    and so I'm just going to be renting a room during the internship,
    you know, to save money.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Makes sense.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, and the room I found is pretty cheap and in a great location-
    very close to the magazine where I'll be working.
    Only thing is, it doesn't come with any furniture.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Nothing?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> No, nothing-the room isn't furnished, no desk, no chairs, no bed, no sofa...
    so I'll have to do something about that.
    I was going to try to see if I could buy some inexpensive used furniture once I get up there.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Sounds good. I'm sure there are plenty of places you can buy cheap stuff.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> And maybe sell once the internship is over.
    Only thing is, it's not guaranteed I'll be able to find everything I need for cheap prices,
    and I don't want to spend a lot since it's just for the month.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, what about the furniture you already have in your apartment here on campus?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I do have some nice pieces of furniture in my apartment that I could move to the room,
    [upspeak] but I don't have a way to get it there?
    I'd have to rent a truck or something.
    It'd be kind of a hassle loading it in the truck, carrying it up and down all the stairs... driving the three hours...
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, and then you'd have to move it all back after the month was over.


Briefly summarize the problem the speakers are discussing. Then state which of the two solutions from the conversation you would recommend. Explain the reasons for your recommendation.
