Speaking of sleep; nothing can compete with having a single. When I'm home I have a room to myself and I can here the rain on the roof. Conversely when I'm at the OTC I occasionally have to put on head phones and listen to recorded rain hitting a roof to drown out the sound of snoring and cars passing by. Need I elaborate more?
The food situation is always a critical factor. This is a close and could swing both ways. I don't have to wait, pay, or cook for myself at the OTC. It's fashionable to hate OTC food. I think it taste just fine, and even if it isn't gourmet who am I to complain? If you're one of the athletes that has eaten here only to complain about the oatmeal consistency than I suggest you get over yourself. On the other hand we have home life food. The down side to eating at the OTC is that there is no privacy. I like sit down and enjoy my meals by myself. Instead I find myself in a packed cafeteria watching sports or breaking news I couldn't care less about. A breakfast in the county means going outside to pick some rhubarb to go with my cereal and local eggs. All in a house to myself. What a gem those days are... Obviously, home food is not free or readily prepared, but it's worth the effort in the end. All things considered it's a draw.
