Up in the Night

It was around two or three o clock in the morning when I woke up to a blue glow covering the walls. I rubbed my eyes began to look for the source of the obnoxious light that was illuminating my typically pitch black dorm room. I glanced at the floor only to find my roommate with a head lamp strapped around her forehead, assembling an enormous Harry Potter puzzle. Although the early morning puzzle session was obnoxious, she was at least courteous enough to drape her majestic unicorn blanket over her head to subdue some of the light when she noticed I had woken up.

Feeding Frenzy

I didn't even realize I was feeding my roommates the last 2 weeks until I went to eat my food and noticed it was gone. It's so crazy.

Early Bird.

My new roommate goes to sleep at 9:30pm. Even on Friday nights. I think that says it all.

Sneaky Sneaky

I let a friend stay with me in my old apartment for a few weeks until my lease was up and we planned on finding a new place together. One day, I took so long looking for my favorite pair of shoes that I missed the bus to school. Later that night, I saw them with the rest of my shoes. I brushed it off, thinking they were just under my nose the whole time. Another night, this friend joined some of my friends to come watch me in a dance performance. I went up to say hi to them afterward and I noticed my friend was in my shirt! To this day, she never has asked to borrow any of my clothes, but would be sneaky and wear them all of the time!

Sinking Feeling

It's pretty common for roommates to struggle over doing dishes but I'm the type of person to just see that dishes need to be washed, and wash all of them. I wish my roommate could return the favor once in a while. She digs through the sink to find her own dishes and only washes those!

I Like Eggs

I randomly ended up moving in with my sister and two of her friends when I started college. They seemed like okay girls but I had no interest in getting to know them. I began to notice that everyday when I came back to the apartment, it smelled like eggs.  As it turned out, one of the girls did not know how to cook and only knew how to make eggs! She would make eggs everyday! The smell of eggs is pretty gross to say the least. It took me about a year to be able to eat eggs again.

What's Mine is Ours.

My roommate and I live on our college campus. He has a "meal plan" with our school, and I buy my own groceries. He has access to unlimited amounts of food on campus, yet he still manages to eat half of my groceries every week.

What's that smell?

My roommate smells exactly like a wet dog.

Half and Half

My roommate and I both live in the dorms on our college campus. Our dorm room could be the scene of a cliche movie; directly split in half with my side orderly and clean, and his side explosive and disastrous.

Walking Christmas Tree.

One time my roommate left our dorm room wrapped up in illuminating colored Christmas lights. He was an electrical engineering major so I didn't ask questions. I watched him leave from our window. People did double takes and looked just as perplexed as I did.

Swimming, Showering, same thing.

Freshman year of college, they overbooked the dorms, so I decided to rent a room in a three-bedroom apartment. I went up early with my parents to check it out and one of my new roommates met us to show us the place. We met her as she was carrying her bike up three flights of stairs. When we reached the apartment door my mom made a comment about how she must be excited to be home and be able to take a shower since she was sweaty from riding her bike all day. She said, "No I'm ok. I jumped in the pool yesterday." I ended up living there but thank goodness we didn't have to share a bedroom or a bathroom!

Battle of the Bowl

I had a strange roommate who was taking wood shop or some kind of wood working class at the college we went to. She was constantly coming home with things she made, and filling our already crammed and cluttered apartment with her homework assignments. One day me and another girl were cleaning the apartment and decided to organize the desk in the living room that had gotten out of control. We cleared it off, putting various papers and belongings away, including a large and ugly bowl, which we stuck on top of the fridge. The next day, I woke up to find the ugly bowl back out on the desk. I laughed and told the other roommate, who then grabbed the bowl and hid it in the hall closet under some blankets. Next morning THE BOWL WAS BACK ON THE DESK! This time, less amused and a little more creeped out, my roommate took the bowl and hid it again. The next morning I didn't wake up to the bowl on the desk, but a rather, a rude note taped to the bathroom mirror addressed to ME! Saying that "everything was fine before I got there and blah blah blah give me my bowl back." Annoyed, I ripped up the letter and sprinkled it all over her bed. She came home, and my roommate confessed that she was the one hiding her bowl. No apologies were given, we just continued avoiding each other from that point on.

Inspector Gadget

In my experience with roommates, one stands out as a bit more odd than others. She wore the same uniform everyday: light khaki pants with a black Tshirt tucked in, black belt and a black floor length trench coat. She always had her pockets full of things and trinkets hanging off of her belt loops. She looked like a female inspector gadget. I always thought she must have had to wake up an hour earlier to get all her 'getup' on everyday. She never wanted to shower and smelled so strongly of B.O. that it actually was brought up very awkwardly in our 'roommate meetings' on more than one occasion. Her and I never really tried to have a relationship, I think we both knew it was pointless. She was in a medieval club and I was well, not the type to ever be in a medieval club. We had nothing in common, but we would nod our heads or smile politely in passing never really having any conversations.

Players gonna Play

My roommate and I found out that we were hanging out with the same guy; while he was kissing me and talking crap about her, he was also kissing her and talking crap about me. We ditched that guy and egged his car.

One time, I came home to a blanket of soap suds covering the kitchen floor and spilling out onto the carpet of the living room! Turns out, my roommate had used dish soap in the dishwasher instead of dishwasher soap! Apparently, it makes a HUGE difference.

Copy Cat

My roommate would get dressed from clothes in my closet daily, without asking or anything. When I would say something, she would just tell me how much she liked it. She would work out and be active in my clothes, and they would get all sweaty and gross. I asked her to stop and after that, when I had something she liked, she would just buy the exact same thing.

Tagged on Facebook

I went out of town one weekend and as I was casually checking Facebook, I saw that my roommate was tagged in a few photos wearing my clothes! It happened a few times before I could work up the courage to speak up!

Bunk Beds

When I lived in dorms, I came home several times to my roommate sleeping in my bottom bunk. He was "too tired" to climb to the top.

Thursday, September 4, 2014


I had a roommate that drank lots of water and left glasses of water all over the house. Picture it like the little girl from the movie, Signs. Sometimes, she would forget which one was hers, but the thing was, they were all hers!

Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?

My roommate used to eat in her sleep. She would wake up in the morning and ask me why there were cookies in her bed!

Hint Hint

My roommate and I had been randomly placed together in a dorm.  We were very different; she was from a small town and I was from a big city.  She wasn't into clothes and makeup and I couldn't have loved them more.  I started noticing that some of my clothes had VERY strong body odor smell in my closet.  I couldn't figure it out!  I would wash them, put them back, and next thing I knew, they would smell like body odor again.  There was one dress in particular that this kept happening to.  I finally confronted her about it and she admitted to borrowing my clothes.  I told her how I knew.  She must have been so embarrassed, but I really needed it to stop happening.  I'm pretty sure she even did it a few times even after we talked about it!

Fish in the Bathtub

My roommates and I got home late one night, like around midnight. I went to take a shower since we had been up in the mountains doing a bonfire, but there were 8 large carp swimming around with their poop in my shower! It turned out it was one of our old roommates who had recently moved out and didn't like us. She still had her key, and she used it to get in and put fish in the tub! We spent the rest of the night trying to catch the fish.
