I especially didn't want to have to buy a new aircon. If I had to, I'd probably just do without and die of heatstroke in my apartment. ha.

    I've asked my "pred" if he has anything for sale, but I haven't heard back from him in a few days. I'm hoping he replies soon. I would much rather buy a new bed set, but I really need to make sure I have some bedding when I arrive. I don't think sleeping on the hard floor without any blankets will be much fun. I also don't want to be forced to go out and buy an overpriced futon set at a local store. Speaking of which, would I be able to carry the futon home myself, or would I need to get the store to deliver it for me?
    If they're not providing the futon, it's very likely that your supervisor/principal/whoever from your school would go shopping with you the day you arrive to get the essentials.

    My supervisor did tell me to ask my "pred" for his futon, but as I said, I haven't heard back from him in awhile. Besides, I really don't want a used futon if new ones are so cheap. That way I don't have to worry about gross mystery stains.

    Anyway, my supervisor said they would "hold" anything I bought from my pred, so I wonder if they would allow me to ship a futon to them and they can hold it for me until I get there?
