It's a shitpost, Tim.
I didn't have any really bad experiences in college dorms. The worst were two separate instances where they caught onto my reclusiveness immediately and didn't talk to me whatsoever. Not even 'hello' or anything like that. It was kind of eerie. I didn't spend all my time in the room or anything like that, I tried my best with introductions, but after the very first day they had written me off.
There was one good year where I had a roommate and suitemates who treated me like a person. We weren't friends or anything but they extended common courtesies to me and tried to talk to me occasionally. That made that entire year a lot better.
Please use her Preferred Pronouns even when you aren't directly addressing her, otherwise you just look really shitty.
He hasn't gotten to that point yet
. He'll let me know when to do so.
Mostly live with a rotating cast of housemates due to poverty. A few I have actually gotten to know and got on well with. Most, we just leave each other alone, which is also an excellent outcome.
However, I lived with one guy who seemed to have people round and to play thumping shit metal music 24/7. I couldn't sleep at all, it was truly awful. Another time someone had their shit everywhere and kept moaning about random nothing stuff even if they were the problem.
Well, this all comes from having to live with strangers. I'd say 90% of the time its been fine but 10% total disaster. I've start living in 3 story houses and renting on the top floor as this reduces issues of noise and interaction.
I've only ever lived with a roommate for a year during my college period. That was four years ago. We shared a tiny dorm room.
He was a bona fide neckbeard and a pretty cool guy. We didn't get along too well because we were both social outcasts at the time and had little social skills, but I liked him.
Worst experience: I don't think he ever showered! He did not smell, but his lack of towels, soap, etc. was gross. He was gross, in fact. His neckbeard was gross. He was fat. His hair and face were awfully greasy. He was kinda obsessed with Gardevoir (the Pokemon), which was sorta creepy.
Best experiences: we got to nerd out together! He gave me 4GBs worth of Pokemon ROMs and rekindled my interest in the franchise. He also showed me Minecraft, TV Tropes, tons of interesting stuff. We watched some DBZ Abridged together on YouTube once, and a complete playthrough of Ace Combat 5. Normalfags would be bored to death or judge you, but not him! Best of all, he was in the room pretty much all the time, just like me, so we had lots of time to waste on silly unproductive nonsense such as video games.
All in all, he might have been a sperg, but he was fuckin' BASED as hell. I hope to meet more such people I can share my nerdy interests with. He's the indirect reason why I've started going to conventions.
Wherever you are now, neckbeardbro, I hope life is treating you well. ;_;
In my only year of college, I had a roommate that was a "DJ". He kept playing obnoxious music while I just wanted to watch my anime, play some VNs, read my books and listen to my Rossini. He even had people over drinking when I'd go out for class and they'd usually spill beer everywhere and had sex a couple of times at 3 in the damned morning. The Res Hall Advisor fined him 3 times for all his shit but he still kept doing it.
He put up some foam letters on the door the first day of the year and didn't take them down after I told him to take it down on the last day of finals. Bastard made me pay $30 for the fine we got since they split it. People felt sorry for me having him as a roommate (especially so when his girlfriend broke up with him because he was too possessive) and they even let me do my usual stuff in their rooms so more than half the day I was in friends' rooms because everyone hated him and that got him kicked from pledging for frats or whatever they ask you to do.
The best day I had was when it rained and he didn't show up. I even got chowder from one of the students who loved to cook.
Wow, I really hated the guy.>>11487
I'd so have you as a roommate.
