Stranger Roommate


Entering a whole new phase.

And how do I feel about this whole deal of going to a hostel and starting a professional course?

Kind of a “excited- anxious” combo.


To be honest, it sucks that I’m going away from home. That’s always there.

The more shitty part is that I’m going to be having a complete stranger as a roommate. I know.


She’s going to be from my class of course, but still.

So, at first I was against taking any super personal stuff with me. Like any belonging that might describe the person I am.

But while packing, I completely turned down the suggestion of my inner anxious mind and now I’m taking all the below items along with my clothes and other necessities.


Harrots, my teddy companion,


And some photographs and cards.

Why this change you ask?

I’m not sure, really. I don’t even know if we will get along well, but one thing that’s clear is, I’ll gain something new out of it.

Everyone has something to teach us. Whether they can set us a good example and be there for us when we need them or they can be the literal opposite of what we had hoped from them.

The girl in my school who taunted me for being the way I was and reduced my self esteem taught me how not to show my might on others. The group of people who labelled me as a “snob and arrogant kid who studies only to please the teachers” taught me not to judge anyone prior to trying to understand them. My best friends from school taught me how to be there for each other, even when our surroundings are filled with pre-conceived remarks. The environment at my pre university, despite being very hostile taught me that I could handle myself when people are trying their hardest to intimidate me. That I can always do better.

Everything and everyone has something to teach.

Maybe, that’s why I’m giving this stranger a chance.

It’ll be either a learning experience or I might find myself a good friend. Who knows!

Till then!  👋

  2. Understandable anxiety, but your person of loo at it as a learning opportunity is wonderful, and you’re right, we do always have something we can learn from in new situations.😊

    This is funny because I did the same thing when I went to college. I was ready not to make any new friends and I made a few and they are now the few people in my life that I can lean on at any point in my life. I’ve had bad ones too..(good God it was terrible) but keep an open mind with caution

      Same here, I’m very rigid when it comes to meeting strangers, but after time I do open up to them if I find them resonating to my frequencies😅
      Have a nice day! ❤
