I really should be sleeping

But I just got my roommate assignments for College and I've been Facebooking and trying to find the two girls I'm going to be living with for the next X years (I'm in a triple).

Found one. She's from New Jersey. Far cry from the south, eh? Based on the phone number area code, I think the other girl's from up north, too. Think it'd freak them out if I brought a large confederate flag to hang above my bed?

P.S. Less than one month.

P.P.S. This time next month I will be in College City.

P.P.P.S. I really, REALLY need to get better at doing my own laundry.

P.P.P.P.S. Blog makeover coming. Stay tuned for changes.

How exciting about getting your roommate assignment! I hope that all goes well!

I am a laundry/stain psycho--not sure what that says about me! ;-)

Have a good weekend!

You know, it's funny. I mostly read other mommy bloggers...and we're at totally different stages in our lives...but somehow I am just totally caught up in what's going on with you and going to college and all. I'm excited about the big changes that are looming!

I remember that roommate letter from way back, big day. I ended up calling (this was way before Facebook and even the internet) and then hanging up (real mature, huh?) just so I could hear her voice and then try to figure out if she was nice based on her saying: hello, hello. She was awesome and we are still great friends. You have a wonderful experience ahead of you, I'm jealous.

Thanks, Hoodies and Pithy! :-)

Juicebox Mom--to be honest, I'd be afraid to up and call my roommates, too :-) I feel much better hiding behind the safety of my computer to get to know them!

So cool that you can get this info ahead of time. I went to college way before Facebook, so I called up my assigned roommate. We got together before school started, and we hit it off pretty well. We ended up living together for 4 years. I hope you and your roomies get along.

(As a fellow southerner, here's what I advise: In addition to hanging the Confederate flag, you should also show up in cowboy boots (or no shoes) and Daisy Duke shorts. Don't forget to have a piece of straw in your mouth.)

Furrow, you really, really don't want to see me in Daisy Dukes. I think it would scar all of us for life. But I would totally do the no shoes/straw route (and maybe blacken a few of my teeth so it looks like they're missing?). Thanks for the suggestions :-)

Roommates! How exciting. I remember (many, many years ago) getting the list of my roommates and wondering how I'd ever manage sharing a room (well, more like a suite) with five other girls.

The Nanny said...

Niobe--did you manage?!?!?

Oh, you bring back the memories. Way back in 1992 (this was before MySpace and Facebook and even everyone e-mailing each other) I got my roommate letter - she was from Chattanooga, TN!! Tennessee! We called and her accent sounded SO Southern to me (and she really didn't even have much of an accent). She taught me about Southern Comfort, The Waffle House, and grits. Good times.

We're still good friends - I see her once every few years (she's a lawyer in Washington DC).

How exciting!

You're kind of like a stalker now, you can freak your roommates out by saying all kinds of stuff about them when you first meet them.
