So it's a month later, everything should be put in it's place and it is now time for you and your roommates to really get a chance to know each other before academics really start to settle in. Now I dont think I've mentioned this before but for the next nine months I am about to be living with three other females. It's not as bad as you think it would be matter of fact I thought it would be worse with all the hormones, attitudes, and all the other girly things that just makes not even want to be a girl at times. Just remember if you make the best of it this will be one of the best experiences of your life. Be opened minded.
Me personally I took the time out to get to know the person I was going to be sharing a room with. She is a cool African-American Latino with a little bit of spice in her salsa with a Jill Scot, India Arie, and Erykah Badu feel to her. Our first conversation was finding out each othere's name coming to the conclusion that we were both hungry and our first adventure was to (of course one of the best places of all time) Chipotle. Now mind you me and this person has never meet before but with an open mind all things are possible.
You never know your roommate could be that best friend you have been looking for you whole life. Yes, me and her do fight but it's ok who doesn't have a disagreement every now and again. Now one thing I have noticed it that i actually have more problems with my other roommates rather than the person i share a room with. I think this is because I know them but I don't actually know about them so therefore we tend to clash more.
One thing i can say is all is going to go well with in the few months the really drama doesn't start to settle until about half way through your first quarter. As you continue to read my blogs I will talk about some of the past and current issues me and my roommates have had. So stay tuned :)
