For some of us, college is the time when we finally take one of the most essential steps to adulting: moving out. Whether you’re moving in to a dorm or an apartment, you are bound to share your space with someone who may or may not ruin the next four years of your life.
Here are the 8 types of people you might end up being roommates with.
You are one blessed person if you get the chance to share your space with this person. They are the ones who got it all. Extra ball pens, yellow pads, rolls of tissue and even a large stash of snacks. And you know what the best part is? They charge nothing. Which is also the last time you will ever experience this.
The Social Butterfly
They’re chummy with the school athletes, they have friends within the student council and they got connections in every department. They get recognized at every corner when walking around campus.
They may not be the ideal roommate for some introverts out there, but imagine needing a hundred respondents for that thesis survey that you are working on; your social butterfly roomie will surely have your back!
The Breathing Encyclopedia
What’s the English term for this word? How do I solve this math problem? This kind of roommate can be your guardian angel through your academic struggles. Their desks are always littered with thick books and test papers marked with large A’s that will make you question what you’ve been doing with your life.
Also, be sure to get yourself an eye mask because they tend to stay up until 3AM and that desk lamp will be shining brighter than your future will be.
Whether they’re strategizing ways to sneak past those clickers or raging over getting that man in a pot to climb up a rock, you should never EVER disturb them. This kind of roommate often has the coolest gadgets and treats them like his own babies.
You might also want to prepare yourself because you’ll be bombarded with jokes full of video game puns and references. Believe me, it’s inevitable.
You will rarely see them out of their bed as they spend most of their time in hibernation. Their alarm clocks are often useless, too, leaving you awake long before they press that snooze button. It’s always a mystery how they pass their courses when they’re barely lifting their heads off their pillows.
The K-pop Fan
You can get the very bubbly type or the totally reserved type, but either way, they’re always ready to babble endlessly about their oppas and unnies. They’ve memorized the songs and choreography of their bias groups and even developed the lung power to chant thirteen names in less than five seconds.
Don’t be too surprised if you walked in on them spazzing and chanting their hearts out to live performances of their idols. Just keep walking and avoid eye contact.
The Artistic Kid
Whether they’re into music, visual or performing, they will always be among the most passionate people you will meet. They spend majority of their time polishing their craft. And although you may get irritated when they get a little messy or noisy, your jaw will always drop once they show you their masterpiece.
You really thought you could escape the nagging at home that easily?
Just like real parents, this kind of roommate can turn out either very strict or extremely doting. They’re the ones who make sure that everyone is doing their assigned chores and are cleaning up after themselves. They’ll also be making sure that you eat your dinner and that you’re not staying up late scrolling through your feeds.
