As you all have realized I have been a bit MIA since I started college in early August. I figured once I got adjusted to college life I would come back to blogging regularly, but so far that hasn't happened.
|My old Room set up.|
|Victoria was very much into your side my side and hated tvs|
so I was forced to have my chair and tv under the bed.
Victoria and I got along for the first few days, but by Sunday of move in weekend I had already discovered many things I wasn't happy with. I tried to remain positive and believed that we would work out our difficulties. Victoria told me on day 1 that she was not in college to make friends and I would be her only friend. She wants to be a medical examiner so she believes that she will never have to communicate with people which is just so far from the truth. I have never met a person that is so disconnected from our world. She has no idea how to relate to people or form friendships.
As the weeks went on things did not get better although I tried to keep the relationship open. Victoria never wanted to talk to me so I found it hard to bring up our difficulties. Communication ceased totally around week 5. She would say hi to me and then go hide in her corner.
|The fridge sat by my desk so I lost that area|
because it was mine and it had to be on my side,
but I had no room under my bed meanwhile Victoria
had plenty of room on her side.
I continued to become increasingly unhappy and it was making the transition to college a lot harder for me because I didn't feel comfortable in my own dorm room. I looked into the prospect of switching dorm rooms.
My community advisors kept telling me to wait until semester time and maybe Victoria would end up moving or commuting since she lives really close to campus. I didn't think it was worth being depressed for the entire semester with no guarantee that Victoria would be the one to move.
|My new room has a much more user friendly set up. The fridge|
is under Sierra's bed and my chair is able to sit forward.
My family came up on Sunday October 13th to move me into my new room. It was not fun having to move all my stuff up three flights of stairs, but in my opinion it was worth it. In these last four weeks I have been so happy with Sierra. I have found a roommate that I get along with and I have become much more comfortable with my college life. I couldn't be happier that I made the decision to move.
In the beginning I was concerned I would get somebody worse than Victoria, but I'm glad everything turned out for the better. For my readers that are in college I want to let you know that you should work hard on your roommate relationship, but if it really isn't working out it is okay to switch roommates. I barely knew Victoria so I didn't care about hurting her feelings and I'm much happier with Sierra so I'm glad to move forward with my college journey.
In other news I'm hoping to move back to a regular blogging schedule since I haven't published a book review for awhile.
|The tv sits on the desk and we both use it.|
|I hung up many command hooks because|
this room felt more permanent from the moment
I moved in.
