These days I can hardly believe my luck. Having lived together with my roommate a little over a month, I realize that we get on really well. Sometimes we just sit in the living room talking for hours. Some of his friends also sometimes come to play board games. This is what we did yesterday for example. Or we cook together. And do the dishes together. On Saturday, we invited friends over for a little party – and it was so much fun. Luckily, my friends also get on well with his friends. And they all love Canavar, who always demands attention and finally is brushed as much as he likes. After everybody had left on Saturday, we just stayed on the sofa, talked, and watched music videos on Youtube together until 1.30 a.m.
He is my fourth roommate in two years, and for the first time I feel properly at home. I didn’t even know that sharing an apartment could be this great. Plus I also finally get to know people who are not somehow part of my work environment. All of them are genuinely nice, not (too) extroverted and loud, not fake friendly, but actually very very nice people. I suppose sometimes it just takes a little longer to arrive, to feel settled. It might have taken me two years and four roommates.
