Listen to a conversation between two students.
Hey, Jim. How's it going?
Got plans for the summer yet?
[Excited] Yeah, actually...
I got a month long internship in a town about three hours from here...
working at a magazine. Pretty excited.
An internship with a magazine? Very cool.
Yeah, I'm excited to get to know a new area too.
So have you found a place to stay for the month?
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.
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.
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.
Sounds good. I'm sure there are plenty of places you can buy cheap stuff.
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.
Well, what about the furniture you already have in your apartment here on campus?
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...
Yeah, and then you'd have to move it all back after the month was over.
