I’m an only child, so I arrived at college with limited knowledge of cohabitation. Currently, I can say that I know a substantial amount about dealing with roommates, however I can only credit this to a series of terrible roommates. Unfortunately, I’ve shared rooms and apartments with compulsive liars, kleptomaniacs, and girls who had little respect for my personal property and myself. In these situations, it’s important to remember that it is not your responsibility to change people, but there are ways to better equip yourself to flawlessly deal with these situations.
