Live with a roommate is a thing that, sooner or later, happens in the school life of everyone. There are also some qualities that makes a good or a bad roommate.
These qualities are clearly of the character, but also related to the habits. The most important, in my opinion, are the honesty, the cleanliness and the quietness.
If you pass the greatest part of the day with something that you know since few time, is very important that you don’t have to worry of nothing. You can’t feel anxious or nervous thinking about what you roommate can do while you are not in your room. In fact, I think that the honesty is certainly the most important quality of a good roommate. I must have the full trust of him, without think, for instance, that he had left open the tap of the bath, and now all my things are underwater!
Staying in the same room, for a long period of time, led us to a costant contact. Keep something, or himself, dirty, is not a good idea for construct a good relationship between people. For example, a roommate that doesn’t clean the toilet, doesn’t wash his clothes everyday, doesn’t make a good impression on me.
I’m also allergic to the dust so, I can’t live with someone that doesn’t follow the most basics rules of hygiene.
In a school ambient, you also need to study and to sleep at the night, because you need to wake up early the next morning. It would not be a beautiful situation, if noises of every type destroy your concentration. Have a roommate that has different habits than me, would be disasterful! Imagine if my roommate has the habit to come back late at night, and maybe do a lot of noise, and even worst, when he’s fall asleep, he start snores! He will destroy my sleep, and my concentration for the day after!
In conclusion, I’m not pretencious, I have few rules, but I need that my roommate follows all of these, to be in a good relationship.
