Living with a crazy lady for five months appears to have made me reckless.
I am now living with two guys BW (18, in high school) and CR (25, works at Website). They are fellow nerds but also rock climb and do projects and drive motorcycles/speed bikes (ZK1490? Ninja and Kawasaki).
As living at Roommate’s became more and more awful, I stopped writing about it and telling people how bad it was. After we agreed to extend our agreement, the situation rapidly deteriorated. By the end of February I was ready to look for other options (as evidenced by my last entry.) I began searching at the beginning of March and on 3/31 I moved out of Roommate’s and in with the guys! I’m already SO much happier! I have roommates! They’re nice! We’ve had dinner together my first two nights! They helped me move in! I have my own room with just stuff I want in it. I can lock them out! I get to keep things in the bathroom! I get to keep things in the kitchen! I have a closet! I have a ceiling fan! I have a fan that doesn’t squeak ALL the time! I have a key to the house! I get to sleep in the house! If I did die in the garage, my roommates would notice! There are no pets or crazy old ladies! I only live 7 miles from work instead of 20 miles! I won’t have to get up at 4:30 am anymore! There are no pets! I get to use the light switches! I don’t have to check my bed for crickets before crawling under the covers! I don’t have to wipe out the kitchen sink after using it! I can throw away paper towels! I can use their pool instead of just looking at the pool in the backyard! I know how many people have access to the house! I can turn off the TV! I can take a hot shower! I can get home from work and eat dinner instead of spending an hour feeding someone else’s pets!
I met CR three times before deciding to move in and BW only once. I saw the house before agreeing and moved in four days later. A week before that I learned CR was/might be looking for another roommate.
Tonight they took me riding. We went 145 MPH!!! We also popped a wheely! (Author’s Note: This is NOT an exaggeration. Those things really happened (not at the same time. duh.) Yep, I was definitely reckless!) I rode on the “world’s fastest production motorcycle! IT WAS AMAZING! OMG the adrenaline! WOW! What a thrill! I did really well! It was a great roommate bonding experience! We came home and I made cookies! …There is so much to say about all that has happened. Most of me doesn’t want to remember any of it (despite the amazing story stuff I could get form it all.)
I keep procrastinating because I don’t want to sleep because that means I will wake up and have to go to work. I will now go to sleep. Perhaps when it’s not so immediate I’ll be able to document these recent events.
(Author’s Note: Nope. Didn’t really happen. I have happily let most of those shenanigans fade into the black hole of memory and time and occasionally will bring up a few stories if I’m quite intoxicated and asked directly. Those stories do make a great comedic stand up act….)
