When my roommate and I first met, we thought it would be perfect.
We had known each other all throughout our schooling years and had always gotten along great and so we were not expecting any kind of problems.
This was the case too, for three years we would hang out all of the time and did everything together. We weren’t just roommates, we were best friends. All of this suddenly changed however when she decided to move out. She had been dating the same guy for a couple of years and they had recently gotten engaged and so she was going to live with him. I was really happy for them but I knew I was going to miss her. She let me know in advance so I had time to find a new roommate. I found a new roommate, a friend of a friend who was an acquaintance to me. His name was John and he was looking for a place so it seemed to be the right time. He moved in and nothing was the same, we really didn’t share anything in common except for our love of the air conditioning system. We both had an appreciation of HVAC workers and heating and cooling technology. John’s uncle was a cooling specialist and he told me he planned to go to school to become a certified heating and air conditioning professional as well. We were always bringing new HVAC products home and sharing them with each other. He lived with me for a year before he too went his separate ways.
