Throughout your years here at Brock, many things can change, including the people you surround yourself with. Developing new relationships can help define your time spent at school, and one of the relationships that are most important, is a person’s relationship with their roommate. While some things are taken for granted, make sure you take a moment to appreciate all the things that you have learned, and the person you have become since becoming someone’s roomie.
To those roommates out there, who have become more than just a person who shares a house or room, and is considered more like a best friend, here’s to you:
1. Thank you for being around when I forget my keys
Who else would be around to let you inside at 4 o’clock in the afternoon or 3 o’clock in the morning?
2. Thank you for letting me borrow your clothes
It’s like having a second closet.
3. Thank you for making sure I pick up after myself
Sometimes, without having your mom around, it’s easy to leave messes behind. Well, your roommates can be the ones to nag you about them. They’re intentions are good, I swear.
4. Thank you for being around to listen to me vent
No matter the time, whether it’s over dinner or at 3 am, your roommates always seem to be there to listen.
5. Thank you for sometimes paying for the pizza
Don’t forgot to offer to pay the next time, though.
6. Thank you for pushing me to do things I sometimes don’t want to do, a.k.a homework or going to the gym
You know that voice in your head that tells you that you should do something? Your roommates are the ones to make sure you actually go out and do it.
7. Thank you for respecting my privacy
Everyone needs some time alone, and I thank you for respecting that.
8. Thanks for being a friend
Most importantly, your roommate isn’t just someone you share a fridge with. It’s someone who has worked their way into your closest group of friends.
