Almost 9 months ago I moved into my dorm room with 2 complete strangers. I knew little to no information about them other than what my Instagram and Facebook stalking had discovered. I had no idea who these people were other than that I would be living with them for 9 months in a brand new place.
Living with two complete strangers is scary.
Every time someone would ask me why I had decided not to choose my roommates the answer was simple: I had a hard enough time choosing a school to attend, having to choose roommates would be nearly impossible. I heard horror story after horror story about how terrible freshmen year roommates could be.
I was scared. I worried that they would hate me and we would have an awful living situation. I was scared we would fight all the time and simply, that they wouldn't like me. I was terrified about having just one roommate, but TWO? I didn't know what to expect or how to live with two complete strangers.
Now, I am beyond glad that I did in fact go random. Luckily, I was paired with two of the most easy going and amazing roommates. They've put up with a lot of my issues, and to that I could not say thank you enough, but I'm gonna give it a shot.
