My roomie moved out in the wee hours of the morning.
Her requested transfer came thru earlier than expected so she took advantage of her vacation time and jumped on the opportunity to accomplish as much as possible before she heads off to Tokyo next week.
For someone I've only known since late June, and was my roomie from late July, we got to be pretty close. I was on a mission to introduce her to all my local Denver/Boulder peeps, we went out several times, her Mom came for a short visit and stayed with us, and we laughed at anything and everything.
While I was slightly hesitant at having a housemate once more, I decided to approach it as I approach most anything...open mind, expect the best, and see what I can learn about myself and others in the process.
What did I learn?
That there are incredible people out there who are kind, adventure-oriented, eat really really healthy, aren't afraid to take chances, and will reciprocate kindness when kindness is offered. I also learned that I tend to slam the door from the laundry room to the living room (oops) and that I get attached fairly quickly when I find someone I really admire.
Thanks Ondreya for being an awesome roomie :-)
Best of luck in DC and where ever else the friendly skies take you!
