When My Roomi and I...

For many collegiate, FRESHMAN YEAR OF COLLEGE meansLIVING WITH SOMEONE UNKNOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME.

And at Wake, that “SOMEONE ELSE” is selected TOTALLY RANDOMLY!!

Some roomies end up being best friends and some don’t, but almost EVERY PAIR OF ROOMIES has at least one fun experience together! 

HAVE YOU TWO HAD YOURS YET..?? If not, then we hope you have one soon..!!

And below are enlisted "SECRETS TO BONDING" with your roommate, they might be helpful for you if you and you roommate have not gelled together well till now..!!

HAVING A ROOMMATE TO SHARE YOUR SECRETS WITH IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN DO..

1. BONDING OVER GOSSIP
Gossip is something into which everyone is involved somehow, its something which roomies do often, it creates a own bond in roomies which is positive, somehow works for them to be positive for each other.
 
2. DANCE PARTYING IN YOUR ROOM
 
Whenever my roomi gets ready for parties, she blasts rap music and dances around the room. While she has some pretty sick dance moves, I on the other hand do not. 
Luckily, we found the middle ground: “AN AWKWARD DANCE MOVES” dance party! 
We just danced the way we did at middle school formals (which consisted of lots of arm waving and jumping up and down). 
It got even funnier when we added the “AWKWARD FACE” to our awkward dance moves. We had so much fun and we laughed so hard for so long. 
If you want to cut loose, try having a dance party with your roomi!

Sometimes, some awkward moves take away the awkwardness in a relation..!! And everything will turn out to be better than you might have thought.

 
 
3. PROCRASTINATING ON LAB REPORTS
 
Hey, we all get behind on work. WHY NOT BE "BEHIND TOGETHER"
I remember the night before our third chemistry lab -- my roomi and I stayed up until around 2:00 in the morning because we had both procrastinated. We laughed at each other and promised to work on the next one together on the Friday before it was due. We didn't. We procrastinated together again…

P.S. - WE DON'T RECOMMEND DOING THIS. (but it's a nice way to ditch the work for once and catch up with yourselves.)
 
4. EAT OUT TOGETHER
Go out for "food outings." 
You never know, maybe your hearts connect through your stomachs.
 
5. MOVIES AND T.V. SHOWS TOGETHER
Watch your favorite movies, T.V. shows and series together, this will help you two to spend some time together and know each other..!!
WATCHING MOVIE WITH YOUR ROOMI ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT ARE BASED ON ROOMMATES IS EVEN MORE DELIGHTFUL.. 
There are many ideas and ways to make a "ROOMI-RELATION" work, what works for your roomi Jodi, might not be applicable to the other jodi, but this is what is the uniqueness of "roomies and relations."
 
So, don't worry, things might take time but eventually they will go in your favor, if you really wish and want it that way.. "that good away."
