Living away from your parents and on your own can be hard at first. Some people come across the world to go to school, and others just live down the street. I am part of the few who could still live at home and just commute to school. In choosing that I wanted to go to Gardner-Webb. I decided that I would rather live on campus than commute to school. Since I did not know anybody from Gardner-Webb before attending, they put me in a random selection, which has proven to me how to live with a complete stranger. Here are five lessons that I have learned along the way.
1. You have binge watched Netflix all day? Me too.
When you find someone who does the same things as you, there is no judgement there. You have watched Netflix all day? So have I. Let's keep watching.
2. The room will never be 100 percent spotless.
Both my roommate and I know our room will never be 100 percent clean. But we both know that it is okay, it's our room anyways.
3. I hope you can sleep with noise still happening.
Sleeping is something that everyone needs. Middle of the day naps are advised. Your roommate will wake you up, but it will be okay, because they are probably gonna take a nap too.
4. Being random as all get out.
5. You will learn to love each other.
Your roommate will become one of the best friends that you have ever had and they will soon know everything there is to know about you.
