I think the most important thing is that in being here Monday-Friday, not only am I able to alleviate any living expenses or drama that might happen between whom-so-ever I would be living with (in this case, my parents), given that my parents do actually provide me with free oat-bars and laundry services, as well as a place to stay over the weekend, making it incredibly plausible for me to be doing this, but there are also lots of other great benefits as well.
Some of those benefits include, but are not limited to: not having to go home at 11p just because the light rail would stop running, while at the same time, not having to pay ridiculous parking fees to try to avoid that problem. Also, I can participate and enjoy the myriad of events going on at ASU on campus. For instance, today, I ended up going to an innovation challenge meeting just because I had the time to do so. Since I was already here, I had the smallest transaction cost for attending, and therefore, I did.
Basically, there are a lot of perks to just being here. Sure, it would be magnificent if I had a dorm and I could store probably 300x as much stuff in it as I do in my gym locker, and I could have my own shower, and my own bed instead of sleeping in weird places like on chairs and stuff.......... but you know what? I just don't have $2000 to spend on that sort of thing, and I'd really like to get a scholarship next semester, but so long as that's not a possibility, this is definitely the next best thing. For sure!
