To My Newest Roommate,
We definitely did not become roommates in the most normal way, but looking back on it all, its a little hard to believe that it wasn't meant to happen. We can finally put all the past struggles behind us and look forward to what is to come.
I didn't expect us to become friends as quickly as we did. If we are being honest, I didn't really expect us to be good friends at all. I thought you'd move in and we would be civil, maybe hang out once in a while, but you have quickly become one of my biggest support systems, even if you don't know it.
This year hasn't been easy with schoolwork, my nursing application, drama, and now this whole pandemic, but every time I let those things get to me, you are right there with a wacky story and Netflix already on the TV. You understand that sometimes talking doesn't help and how comforting it can be to just be with someone and ignore the troubles around you.
I've only known you a few months, but I already know that you are entertaining, easy to talk to, and never afraid to speak your mind. This quarantine was never expected either, but I'm glad that I have you with me through it. Isolating with a good friend like you has certainly delayed the stir-crazy meltdowns.
Thank you for dealing with my stressed rants and the messes I make, and thank you for always being ready to have a mind blowing, self-reflective conversation. I know I'm not always the easiest to live with, but I hope you know that through everything, I'm thankful to have you as my roommate.
Love, Your Roommate/Quarantine Buddy
