I’ve always been lucky when it comes to roommates…luckily. My freshman year of college at Washington State University I chose to go with a randomly assigned roommate, which we all know can be pretty awkward if you end up with some sort of weirdo. Well guys, I ended up with a total weirdo…and I love her. Her name was Claire (actually it still is Claire), and you may have seen her around this blog before (She’s the hott brunette with a killer sense of style).
Claire was/is the absolute coolest most chill person you could ever encounter…which made her the perfect match for me because I’m pretty sure no one in their right mind would/could ever describe me as “chill”. Claire and I ate pretty much every meal together, spent nights in our dorm room eating Ben&Jerry’s and watching The Spice Girls movie. When “Speak Now” was released we made it a rule that Taylor Swift was the only music allowed in our dorm room for a solid week, Claire introduced me to Macklemore, and her little Vashon island hippie friends. Claire let me cry to her about loosing my best friend senior year of high school, painted my nails, and let me have unlimited access to her amazing wardrobe. It’s pretty safe to say my freshman year of college is summarized by my love for Claire-Bear.
When I made the irresponsible decision to adopt my pride and joy little fur ball puppy, Claire volunteered to babysit her over Thanksgiving break while I was in Nova Scotia. Claire and I shared our dreams with each other pretty much every morning, and as well as a mutual love of Cinnamon toast crunch. We both didn’t like taking out the garbage…so I guess in that sense, we can probably both relate to the video you’re going to watch after I ramble on a little more. Over Spring Break Claire came sailing with my family in the Caribbean, they fell absoloutely in love with her, and of course I fell in love with her all over again.
I have so many beautiful memories from Freshman year with Claire (and have built so many more since then). When she transferred sophomore year I was heartbroken, but happy to see her chasing her dreams of course. My sophomore year just was incomplete without Clairey, so I had to transfer too I guess! I guess all of this is just leading up to saying….
Claire will you be my roommate again?!?!
Some people aren’t so lucky with roommates…like I’ve heard some really awful horror stories. I mean I’ve lived in a sorority and as much as I loved the experience it really made my roomie relationship with Claire look like a walk in the park (which it was…). No matter what sort of freak you end up with you can end up coming out ahead. Let McGraw Hill show you in under two minutes how to “outsmart your rank roommate”.
How have your roommate experiences been so far in life? Which qualities can you just NOT live with?
P.S. This post is sponsored by McGraw Hill however my undeniable obsession with Claire is all my own and could not be purchased with all the money in the world.
