Boys, Band, and Books, the Life and Times of a Teenage Band Nerd
What happens during the day (because I will never post on the internet what happens at night)
Holy water buckets I'm actually going to college!
Well, fish camp this weekend anyway. My roommate for the semster is going to the same one and I'm not quite sure what to make of her, though I'm sure she feels the same way.

She graduated from a private christian academy "Scholarship in the eyes of God" or some crap like that; she graduated in a class of 20. She is majoring in science and she's a little over 5 feet tall.

Could you devise a more opposite person for me to room with??? Holy crap! I keep running over a horror scenario in my head of the first time she sees me watching yaoi on YouTube:

Her: What're you watching?
Me: Anime.
Her: What's that?
Me: A type of japanese cartoon.
Her: What are those guys doing?
Me: Don't you have homework to be doing????
Her: OMG they're gay aren't they?!?!?!?!??!!
Me: ...

Or we could become the best of friends...


And have lots of things in common...


She's a noob too- I asked her if she had any favorite video games and she told me that she played Guitar Hero a couple times. stare

I have too much free time. And I worry too much. Advice anyone?

Phobias of the week:

Arachibutyrophobia- Fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.
Ephebiphobia- Fear of teenagers
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words

I had nearly exactly the same situation my first year of college. It was fine, because we knew we weren't going to be buddy-buddy. I was friendly, she was friendly. I answered her questions, she'd answer mine but we'd have our own separate areas, our own separate lives. Commiserated from time to time. Yes, I had to put up with her watching Ugly Betty and America's Next Top Model, and she had to put up with anime. But it was okay. She liked Robot Chicken and Family Guy and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. She was out partying most of the time, so I often had the room to myself.

It will be fine. Agree to your boundaries ahead of time. Both of you be reasonable... Keep it low key. It's gonna be okay.

Where are you going to college?
