I have lived with roommates my entire life. When I was younger I lived with my parents and then once I was in college I had to get roommates to be able to afford my rent. I always loved living with my parents and I was lucky that my college roommates were really great too. I honestly didn’t have any problems with roommates at all. Last year, I sadly had to move out because my roommate wanted to have her boyfriend move in. I totally understood because they were probably going to be married in the next couple of years and wanted to live together first. So, this meant that I was going to get to have a place all to myself. I have never experienced living alone and I was so excited to get to do it. My mom always told me that if I had the chance to live alone once in my life that I should jump at the opportunity, and that is just what I did. I have now been living alone for about two months now and I really love it. One thing I never thought I would like so much is being able to set the HVAC system to whatever I want. I always let my roommates set the thermostat because I am not too picky about the HVAC temperature. However, I never realized how nice it was to have the house blast air conditioner while I was sleeping! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have another roommate again!
