POV: It’s the beginning of November 2022. You live in a D5 Penthouse at Tempo with your roommates.
9AM – You check your phone and hit snooze. Ugh... cold again today?
9:15 AM – Wake up for real this time. You roll out of bed and walk into your brand-new kitchen. Your roommates are still asleep, so you grab your laundry from the full-size dryer and head back to your room.
9:30AM – You shower and get ready in your private on-suite. You can hear your roommates are in the kitchen now, but don’t feel like talking before your morning coffee. You look out of the window to see a resident event at the South Courtyard. Breakfast burritos do sound pretty good.
9:45 AM – Your roommates are finally getting their own days started in their rooms, so you head out while the coast is clear. You step out of the elevator and swing by the coffee bar in the lobby to get through your morning. Almost forgot – food! After grabbing your scooter from the charging station, you snag one of the last burritos from the resident event and make your way to Paint Branch Trail.
10AM – Ahhh Physics. We meet again. Your half-eaten burrito and empty coffee cup sit in front of you while your professor starts on Chapter 4. You realize morning class isn’t so bad when you’re caffeinated.
12PM – You head to Stamp to get some studying done, but it’s so crowded you can barely hear yourself think. Plan B?
12:30PM – You speed down Paint Branch Trail back home with the thoughts of another hot coffee motivating you the whole way. After your scooter is parked & charging for tomorrow, you head to the coffee bar once more and start scouting private study tables. Tempo seems pretty packed with study groups just like Stamp, so you head to the sound-proof podcast studio to get your work done.
2:30PM – Assignments = complete. Your brain = dead. Time to head back upstairs to the warm solace of your bedroom before your friends come over for game night.
3PM – Your weather app wasn’t kidding about the cold – geez. You decide to lock your bedroom door, put your playlist on, and run a hot bath. After your self-care, you lay down in bed for a nap. You sink into your memory-foam mattress topper and check Instagram. Tempo’s doing another giveaway? A Movie Night Basket?! Say less. You tag your roommates and the kid that asked about your burrito from class earlier.
7PM – What day is it? What time is it? You check your phone again. 7 already? You change clothes and head down the hall to see if the Multisport Simulator is open. Of course it is. Your friends call and say they’re waiting by the front door next to guest-parking so you make your way down to bring them to the penthouse.
9PM – After a few hours of playing games on the simulator, your neighbors come in looking for a turn. You take your friends downstairs to check out the arcade games in the resident lounge after you beat your neighbors in a dodgeball standoff.
10PM – You end the night with your friends by the firepit in the Zen Garden and walk them to guest-parking to say goodbye.
11PM – You change into pajamas and put your playlist on. You’re about to fall asleep, but have one thing on your mind. You ask Siri to set a reminder.
“Siri, remind me to renew my lease at Tempo this week.”
11:01PM – Maybe two things on your mind.
I can’t believe they thought they’d stand a chance against us in dodgeball...
