My first day of boarding school, I have never been more stressed my entire life. The moment I met my roommate from Austria who came to the school with a year-long exchange program. All of my anxiety just flew away. She introduced herself to me and she asked me if I wanted to go to dinner with her. In my mind, it was a miracle that I had such a sweet and amazing roommate. The next couple of months, I got to know her well enough and I felt very lucky to live with such a supportive and fun roommate. We have been together through good times and bad times. I know it’s not easy living with me. Sometimes my room gets very messy and I get moody and cry over The Notebook. I can be overly-emotional and difficult, but she was always there to cheer me up. And I’m immensely grateful for her and all the time we spent together. We have stayed up until 4 am to finish our research papers. I will miss her so much next year but I will never forget all the fun times we spent together.
