I have had my own place and I have had roommates. I much prefer to have my own place. I used to think it was because I am a loner. If anything I have proven that is no longer true. It is just that I like having my own space. No, I like having space that if I have to share it is with someone that I know in and out. Someone that understands me. Someone that will not have people over when I need to be studying, sleeping, writing an article or dammit if I just don’t want to have people over.
A significant other will do that right? Until I have one of those I think I just need my time alone. I am the oldest of…way too many to think about counting right now and I like having my area. Matter fact being around my siblings are not as bad as having a roommate.
Let me not say that. It is not about all roommates it is about this particular one that I have now. She and I just do not mesh well.
I having been living with her for some time and I can say I have been dreading it from the beginning. I have looked at the “bright side” to this all.
I have a roof over my head.
A bed to sleep in.
The building is amazing. The neighbors are lovely. The staff are great and the location is prime.
But no matter what, I get to the front door of the apartment and it starts. Most of the time its is because I can hear her and friends through the door. Or I open the front door and there is stuff behind it, making the entry area a mess. It is highly annoying. I feel like I shouldve been on MTV’s True Life episode “I Hate My Roommate”. It would have worked perfectly. Yes, I feel like a college freshman stuck with a roommate that I can’t get away from. Our personalities and ways of life are so different.
I stay to myself. I go handle my business and make sure that I spend a lot of time outside. Then when I am in the house I just stay in my domain.
Yes, I have tried to hang out with her. It just doesn’t work. My room is myeverything. I only go in the kitchen to cook which I immediately clean up after myself, everytime. I use the bathroom, I clean the whole bathroom.
I am so tired of this! I feel like I am going to blow. So what I think I am going to do in the new year (or maybe now) is start taking my irritation out in the gym.
I have this blog and other ways to get this out. But something that will be healthy may be an even better way to do it. Maybe, since I am up most late nights I can go then.
What do you think? This roommate dilemma cannot take over my brain any longer. I say that now, lets see what if I still feel this way when I am awaken by her loud mouth in the morning.
