Ever since my current roommate moved in my life has become so much more complicated and frustrating.
The craziest thing about it is that my roommate is my very own sibling! Three months ago my best friend and roommate of three years fell in love with somebody and moved away nearly halfway across the country.
I certainly was cheerful for her, however I was equally as distraught about being able to cover my own rent. I was basically stressed to the maximum because it is terribly hard to find a roommate you can trust socially and financially. After scrambling around for awhile I was able to have my baby sibling move in with me. We basically always got along when we were growing up, however at the time I had no idea whatsoever how much he had changed over the years. My sibling has turned out to be a slob! I can’t count the times I have come back to the residence to find that he has left the HVAC machine on high after leaving the residence or left all of the lights on. I swear that our heating and cooling bills are as luxurious as corporate buildings! His habit of turning the HVAC machine on such a high level has led to it cutting down for good. He promised me that he would call his good buddy who is a Heating plus A/C repair tech to fix it up for free, although he has been saying that for approximately two months. I still appreciate my sibling, however, I hope that he falls in love similar to how my old roommate did and I will be able to find a brand new roommate to live with.
