So, as I mentioned before here, I have my own balcony in my room. Well, actually shared with the neighbor next to my room, separated by a partition, but still big enough.
The most convenience advantage of having this, during the winter, is that I have my personal fridge… a very big one! :))
I don’t have to worry if I don’t have enough space in the shared fridge at the common kitchen. Yes, it is some kind of a battle to gain a space there. Most of the time I don’t throw empty boxes away until I buy the new ones :p.
The only drawback of this ‘big fridge’ of mine is that I have to open the window and go out from the warm room to the coldness when I want to get something from it. But only for a second so it’s still fine ;).
