Something I plan on working on a lot in 2009 is my attitude towards my roommate. Yes, I have issues with her and the way she handles finances, and medicine/hospitals, and Christianity, and her boy. However, a year ago, we had not even met. She JUST turned 21. She's young. She's naive...probably more so than I was at her age, what with her being handed everything in life. Still, I am stuck here with her until May or August, depending on where my summer job hunt lands me. As much as I would love to find a nanny job far, far away, the reality is that part of me wants to stay here as well, to continue to grow roots in this darn city that everyone is now moving away from. And so, one of my jobs for now is to nice to her, to accept her for who she is, and moreover, pray for her. More on her wackiness later. Oh, the stories!
