A thing most common these days, most of people have experienced living with roommate either during their time of studies or their jobs.
Like you move to a new city for your studies and you have no idea who’s going to be your roommate in Hostel or PG.
It’s a challenging situation, to be sure, to meet someone for the first time and then live in close quarters with that person for a whole college year.
A month ago, I joined college for my post-graduation and finalized the PG near my college. I was having no idea who will be my roommate how she’ll be?
And to be honest I am very bad at adjusting especially when it comes to adjust with people. I have never experienced it before as I am an introvert person and I usually don’t get involve with others so easily.
The day before coming to PG I was not able to sleep at night thinking about who will be my roommate will I be able to adjust with her or not because I easily get into fights with girls. what if my roommate and I don’t get along?
So, finally the day came I went to my PG warden showed me my room and at that time my roommate was not in the room. And after some time, she knocked the door and she was finally in front of me. A cute girl of small height named Kajal Malakar from Indore.
And, good thing came to be out that we took admission to the same college.
We got settled introduced each other, I was bit nervous as I told I am introvert and don’t get involve easily. After 2-3 hours we were like Ki vo chup ho to me bolu me chup how to vo bole, and to be honest I have never talked to any girl straight for 2-3 hours. I can talk to boys for hours but not with girls.
It was not easy for me to shift my life from big house to just one single room (with twin sharing)
It took me 7-8 days to get settled in that single room but just because of Kajal it was a bit easier as she would help me in doing my stuff.
One evening when I went to wash my clothes, I realised that I don’t know how to use the washing machine because I have never used it in my life at home. So, I came back in my room and sat quietly with a crying face Kajal came and asked what happened I said I miss my home she said Hua Kya? I said yaar mujhe washing machine use karne nahi aati and she couldn’t stop herself from laughing and said tu is wajah se ro rahi h and I was like yes she took me with her and told me to step by steps like an elder sister or your mother teaches you how to do something.
And, now its like we used to share everything at the end of the day from how it started and how it ended
She literally cares for me like an elder sister ki tune khana kyun nh khaya? tu pareshan kyun h? just by reading my face she gets to know whether I am happy or sad.
Two days back I went home I told my mom that food is not good of PG, room is also small and other issues. She asked me to look for another PG, I said Maa meri roommate Kajal Bhut Achi h she’s just like charge (my younger sister). So, she said Anjali khana or comfort to easily mil jaega but Ek Tachi roommate easily NH milegi and I felt that.
I realized it’s not too hard to adjust to people and get to know each other.
And I want to thank Kajal my roommate for being there and adjusting with an idiot girl like me.
