Maybe it's just me, but...

I think driving in Seattle is scary! I had to go down to the KISS 106.1 studios today (1000 Dexter) to pick up something that I had won. I had my Mapquest directions, so I figured it would all be good (even traffic wasn't all that bad). However, they were doing massive construction on Westlake. At one point I was actually driving up on the sidewalk. I couldn't turn onto the street specified in the directions (Aloha), so I ended up looping around looking for Dexter. Eventually I found it, but it was a pain in the ass. And then came the parallel parking. Usually I'm horrible at this (the only part I failed on my driver's test), and I have to have a friend get out of the car and help direct me into a spot. Of course, the one time I don't have a witness, I do a PERFECT parallel parking job. When I was leaving, I was able to find I-5 quickly, which was good. Usually my philosophy is just drive around aimlessly until I spot a sign for I-5 and then follow it. Anyway, next summer I'll probably be living in Seattle all the time, which means I'm going to have to get used to all this craziness. I hope I can handle it.

i know that xmissmashax made a post about triple rooms, but i just had another question to ask on the same topic.
i was wait-listed and because of that, i didn't apply for housing until way later than i should've. if i even GET a room, it'll almost definitely be a triple (from what i gather, seeing as someone who appled may 1st got a triple).
my question is this - would you reccommend just saying screw it & living at home in that case (i live about 20 miles north) or sucking it up and dealing with a triple? some people have said it's best to be on campus to meet people, but other people have said triple rooms would be hell and i should just stay at home and commute.
SO i am asking you people, because you may know what you're talking about. thanks in advance.

Question about Transfering

My name is Britney, and I'll be a freshman this fall at Western. At this point, I'm completely fed up with their crap and the run around that they have given me concerning registering for classes and other student life aspects. I'm looking into transferring to UW as soon as possible, however the site doesn't have any information up. Does anyone know any information about transferring?
